Zion Lutheran School has a strong record of academic achievement. Many people often ask how the curriculum of a Lutheran school differs from curricula of other public and private institutions. Our students receive a rigorous education in all subjects and the results are evident in our achievement test scores. One subject that Zion offers for students in grades 3 and above is Latin. But what really sets our curriculum apart from others is the philosophical framework that underlies all teaching at Zion, which follows a classical model of education. Find more about these topics and more in the left column.
We provide a Christ-centered education for our students. This means that Christian values, truths, and ethics are incorporated regularly and intentionally into secular subject matter. By incorporating Christ into the curriculum, students receive a life-changing spiritual and character-building education. Students leave Zion grounded in a firm faith and are prepared for the challenges of life, knowing that Jesus is their savior and that he will be with them always. This is education for eternity! A Christ-centered education helps build faith, hope, and love – intangible qualities that make life living in this fallen world.
We try very hard to maintain a culture of family at Zion Lutheran School of Kearney. Such a culture helps facilitate learning and academic growth. The links below will further illustrate that we do provide the education we say we do.
