  • Tuition Assistance Program: Zion Lutheran School does not wish to deny a Christian education to those who desire it. Many supporters of the School contribute to the Tuition Assistance Fund in order to help those parents who are committed to a Christian education for their children but are stretched by tuition requirements. Should you wish to lend your support through tuition assistance, please contact the school office.
