Zion Lutheran School has been serving the Columbus community since the late 1800’s.  It is owned and operated by Zion Lutheran Church as part of the congregation’s mission to “make disciples of all nations”.  What makes Zion different from the public school and other private institutions is that each day, children from the congregation and community have the opportunity to study God’s Word.  We view spiritual growth as an imperative part of a child’s education.  Each day students participate in religion class, devotion, and prayer. God's Word flows through every subject that is taught at Zion, as the school strives to work hand-in-hand with parents in the training up of their children.  Our mission statement sums up this unique philosophy:

Zion Lutheran School partners with parents to empower and prepare students through a Christ-centered education.
