Mission Statement


Trinity Lutheran School celebrates God’s gift of eternal life by providing children and their families with a Christ-centered, quality education in a caring and nurturing environment.

Trinity Lutheran School and Church have been in Centralia since 1892. We offer spiritual training on a daily basis, and our academic program provides students with the knowledge and tools needed to succeed in high school.


Trinity Lutheran School not only offers strong academics, but extra-curricular activities as well.  These include baseball, track, cross-county, volleyball,  basketball, cheerleading, Scholar Bowl, and choir.


Enrollment for the 2018-2019 school year begins April 3, 2018.  New school families should contact principal Mr. Mark von Soosten at (618) 532-5434 to begin the enrollment process and schedule a tour.
