Young Fives

Our Young Fives program is a half day, every day program that is designed to give students who are age eligible the gift of a year before beginning kindergarten.  Children need to be five years old by December 1 to qualify.  We have added a full day option to our Young 5s program.  Students may still enroll for the morning session only.  Families may decide to transition from half days to full days during the year if they desire.  This program is taught by Mrs. Moilanen and provides students with an individualized, Christian-based environment.

Kindergarten - Eighth Grade

Trinity Lutheran School is committed to quality Christian Education which calls for a sound academic program that will meet the individual needs of children.  In keeping with a Christian philosophy and with respect to the educational requirements of the State of Michigan, our children receive a thorough education, not only in Christian living, but also in a wide variety of other extra-curricular activities. Students in K-8 can enroll throughout the school year.

Families have some options when it comes to tuition payments, but generally for the K – 8 Program it is a 10-month plan. For Preschool, it is a 9-month payment plan. For questions about the Tuition Payment Schedules and Methods, please contact the school office at schooloffice@trinityutica.com.

Financial Aid Scholarships

Trinity Lutheran School offers financial aid scholarships to Trinity member families to assist in making our school affordable. All financial aid is based on the need or financial status of the student’s family, the number of requests received, and the amount of financial aid funds that are available for a given school year. Application deadlines for tuition assistance are “rolling,” but typically we hope to receive them for the new academic year by April 15. For new families who apply, applications can be received at the time of application. Applicants will be notified by mail approximately 6 weeks following each deadline of any award. All applicants must be enrolled at Trinity to be considered for a grant.

Trinity uses a nationally recognized service, TADS, to process financial aid applications. TADS applies standardized criteria to determine to what extent each family needs assistance to pay for one year’s tuition. Trinity’s Scholarship Committee uses information from the TADS process to allocate the amount of financial aid available. Contact the school office with your questions about financial aid.

The Win Graebner Scholarship Fund

This scholarship fund, named in honor of former Trinity teacher and principal, Mr. Winfred M. Graebner, was established in 1992. The scholarship is set up to assist Preschool and K-8 students in Trinity school families where serious financial need exists. These funds may be applied for as scholarship assistance offered at the time of the school’s annual re-enrollment or new student application.

Individuals and families are encouraged to contribute to this scholarship fund through sharing gifts to honor the memory of loved ones, special personal or family days, i.e. birthday, anniversary, or gifts of thanks to God for the blessings of Christian education and our Christian Day School. Additional funding sources will include Thrivent Financial for Lutherans contributions and matching grants, bequests from wills and estates, and proceeds from school-wide fund raisers.
