Accreditation Survey
Lutheran schools share the Gospel with children and families and strive to operate with the highest standards of academic quality. National Lutheran School Accreditation (NLSA) is a strategic tool that is used to evaluate a school's overall effectiveness in the areas of purpose and quality. A school that chooses to participate in NLSA demonstrates, through the preparation of a Self-Study Report, that its stated mission is accomplished and that it complies with NLSA requirements.

Zion Lutheran School is participating in this process with the goals of positive change and ongoing evaluation based on national standards and the school's unique mission.

The following survey questions are correlated with the 7 Standard areas of the Self-Study Report. We appreciate you taking the time to offer your feedback. Your input will assist us in improving our service to our students, staff, and families.  We pray that our efforts bring glory to the great God we serve!

Big Thanks to the 54 families who have already completed!


Enrollment for the 2021-2022 School Year has begun, and early enrollment is more vital to this enrollment season than it has ever been before as our classes sizes are currently smaller than in previous years. If you know your child is returning to Zion next year, please complete re-enrollment as soon as possible to secure your child's place.

Enrollment for new families begins in February, so don't delay. Re-enrollment forms can be found in your Blackbaud account (more information below). It is a quick process that also requires payment of the registration fee.

New This Week
Grandparents' Day - Reimagined

We love Grandparents' Day at ZLS, and we are sad that we will not be able to celebrate it on our campus, in-person with these special people this year.

To celebrate Grandparents' Day (which was scheduled for March 12th), our students and staff will be putting together some activities, photos, videos, and gifts to share with these people that are such an important part of our lives.

We would like to collect home addresses and email addresses for our families' grandparents or special people.

Please use the form attached to your family Blackbaud account to share this information with us.
Lifetouch Picture Retake

Dear Parents,

We would like to offer an additional yearbook photo day for students who joined Zion later in the year and for students who missed the opportunity for pictures or retakes due to absence, illness, or a class quarantine. We’d love to have every student’s photo in our school yearbook!

If your child missed the opportunity to have his or her school yearbook photo taken or retaken this year, and you would like to have his or her picture taken or retaken please contact the school office @ (618) 234-0275 or zionoffice@zionschoolbelleville.org  We need at least 6 people to participate (orders are NOT required) in order to schedule.

Thank you,
Zion Office
