We have worked to partner with local programs to improve the educational experience of our students while giving back to our community.

KPS Special Education

Kearney Public Schools provide Special Education programs to individual students on an as-needed basis. If this is a concern for your family based on your child’s special needs, please speak with the Head Teacher.


Students from the University of Nebraska at Kearney receive required teaching experience while providing Physical Education to Zion students. This partnership allows our students to benefit from expert PE instruction at an age-appropriate level, increasing awareness of their own God-given bodies and supporting the development of an active lifestyle.


Nursing students from the University of Nebraska Medical Center in Kearney receive vital interaction while providing vision and auditory screenings for Zion’s students. UNMC students also present age-appropriate information in the classrooms to promote healthy lifestyles.

America Reads Program

The federal initiative America Reads sponsors college students to serve as reading tutors. The tutors work individually with children in reading and language arts under the supervision of the classroom teacher.

PAWS to Read

The GSHS Animal Assisted Program Therapy Animals listen to students read. The animals are great listeners! This builds confidence in students learning to read aloud and reinforces what is learned in the classroom.
