Yes. Although families pay tuition, Trinity utilizes a company called FACTS to help us determine financial aid, and then it also allows for easy payment schedules that are flexible for every family. An application form is filled out at the end of each school year for pre-registered families and at the beginning of each school year for new families.

Accreditation is the process of self-evaluation and school improvement based on national standards and the school’s purpose. The purpose of National Lutheran School Accreditation (NLSA) is to help Lutheran schools improve for the benefit of students and their families. MANS mirrors that process for non-public schools.

"Preparing God's children of today, to be His light in tomorrow's world and for eternity."

Not presently. We have recently been in conversation with Lumen Christi Catholic High School to perhaps develop a partnership for busing.

Before-Care” begins at 7:00 am and “After-Care” is available until 6:00 pm, at our Early Childhood Development Center, adjacent to the school.

Can parents participate in the life of the school?

Absolutely! Our parent group, Parents and Teachers in Lutheran Schools, encourages volunteerism and active participation in the life of the school.

Is there a vision for Trinity's future?

Our vision is that all families who want to send their children to our school would be able to, that we would share the Gospel message each day, and that the children would learn to be Christian citizens who are prepared to be servant leaders in the community and throughout the world.

We hope to be a school of technology, fine arts, and one that teaches the power of service learning. We have high academic standards and want to serve the Jackson community in a way that glorifies Christ.
