Faith, Family & Community
Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these." Matthew 19:14
A statement of faith is the core beliefs a group, such as Trinity Lutheran Church, has collected and operates on. Our beliefs help us to stay grounded while providing children with the means to learn for themselves the importance of prayer and a Christ-like life.
Trinity provides family oriented preschool. This means that we work in conjunction with families to provide excellent care for their children. It also means that Trinity involves families as much as possible. We offer family-teacher conferences twice a year, and welcome family members to join in class activities and participate in the learning (fun) we provide our students. We also provide families with resources on parenting, relationships and child development.
Trinity operates with the participation of many. It is here you will connect with teachers who are also members of the Athens community. We keep you informed by offering daily notes and verbal communications of what's going on in your child's day, along with bulletin boards and weekly newsletters to provide news, events and other relevant information for your family.
Safety is a primary concern. We use a number of secure measures to keep the facility safe from intruders and the outside world. The Trinity campus has instituted policies to ensure the safety of all the children and employees on its premises.
As Trinity Lutheran Academy is part of the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod, we model our basic values and beliefs on the principles that guide the church's community. To that end, we believe that Jesus is alive and present among us, that he sacrificed himself for our sins, and that he has risen again to prepare a place for our eternal life. We rejoice daily in the Word of God and use it often in our teachings as examples of faith.
Memorization, repetition, and the practice of learning new skills are a part of learning - but at Trinity we operate on more extensive application methods. We believe there are a number of ways to learn new information and our teachers supply multiple avenues to gain that information. So no matter if you have a tactile, visual, or auditory learner, we have a method that meets their needs.
