"One way that Trinity accomplishes its mission is through the Christian Day School. Our teachers at Trinity Lutheran School share the Gospel of Christ every day while teaching elementary subjects for two year-olds through eighth graders. The students include members of Trinity Lutheran Church, members of other Lutheran churches, and children from the surrounding communities.

The school is fully accredited by the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod, the Northern Illinois District, and fully recognized by the State of Illinois. In addition to a complete elementary course of study, extracurricular activities in speech, instrumental music and athletics are offered. Students include members of Trinity Lutheran Church as well as members of other Lutheran and non-Lutheran churches, and represent many different cultures. Members of all faiths are welcome! Families live in several different neighboring communities: Lemont, Darien, Woodridge, LaGrange, Hickory Hills, Justice, Palos area, Homer Glen, and more. Trinity Lutheran School admits students of any race, color, national or ethnic origin to all the rights and privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions, scholarship, athletic, and other school-administered programs.

Trinity does an excellent job of teaching children in the secular subjects and its students meet or exceed the local school district's achievement test scores and they score well above the national average. When choosing a school for your children, one should consider the entire program including, but not limited to: the school's purpose, facilities, dedication of its teachers, and the focus of instruction."


Trinity follows a traditional curriculum with Music, Spanish, and Art as core subjects beginning in 1st grade. Textbooks include Saxon Math, Open Court Reading, Concordia Publishing House Religion, MacMillan McGraw-Hill Science, and Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Social Studies. Updates to curriculum, regarding textbooks, are made following a 7-year rotational schedule.


Student Life Information

If you are looking for a school with a great sense of community, than you should consider Trinity! Children and parents really know each other; carpools, playdates, and relying on one another is commonplace. Teachers conduct home visits before school starts so that they can get to know the children and their families better. As parents, our children are in school for more than 7 hours each day and we want them to be safe and happy but we also want them to be prepared for life-long learning.



Private schools, including parochial and boarding, are funded through tuition and fees. The cost varies from school to school, but most families pay tuition to attend them. Many private schools offer financial aid or discounts, so it's worthwhile to ask about these options.
