Trinity Lutheran School is a co-educational institution focused on excellence and centered on Christ. It has offered a high quality Christian education in a safe learning environment for students in Preschool through Grade Eight for over 50 years. The school campus is conveniently located in Wahiawa and serves families from Ewa Beach to the North Shore, along with many military families based at Wheeler Army Air Field, Schofield Barracks and other military installations on Oahu. Students are selected and retained on the basis of their attitude and involvement with our mission, as well as our ability to meet their specific needs.
The faculty and staff of Trinity Lutheran School endeavor to create a caring and supportive Christian environment for the students. Through Christian example, instruction and discipline, the entire staff of Trinity Lutheran School strives to help each student attain their individual potential in order to succeed in all aspects of their life. At the same time, Trinity Lutheran School works to establish and maintain a partnership with parents, to involve them in school activities and decisions, and to foster open communication between home and school.
“Our exceptional, well-trained and highly dedicated teaching staff, along with our school’s warm sense of family, help to make our school a challenging and rewarding learning environment preparing our students for high school and beyond,” says Principal Paul Krueger. Students from Preschool through Grade Eight are able to learn and grow academically, emotionally, physically and spiritually through classroom instruction, worship experiences, service organizations, athletics and numerous other curricular and extracurricular activities.
