Who We Are
Welcome to Trinity Lutheran School! We are glad you found us. Trinity Lutheran School (TLS) is a private school located in Cheyenne, Wyoming that was established in 1892. TLS provides educational opportunities for children beginning at 3 years old and continuing through the 8th Grade. TLS prepares virtuous, educated people for heavenly and earthly citizenship by means of classical Christian centered education, so they are firmly grounded in God’s word, and share God’s grace in their lives, at home, at school, and in our community.
Why We Do What We Do
Classical education is not easy . . . but it’s worth it!
Each person now living, from the youngest baby to the oldest adult, has a problem with death. Death is the result of sin. Our sin must be taken care of if we ever hope to be rid of our death problem. God saw to it that death would not get the final say in the life of the believer, when He sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to die in the place of sinful man. “Whoever believes and is baptized,” Jesus says, “will be saved” (Mark 16:16). On the Last Day, Jesus will stand with all His saints, and they will live forever in perfect happiness.
Each believer, however, lives in a world ruled by the forces of darkness. Satan and the world will conspire to try to make the Christian lose his faith, so he will not stand with Christ in eternity. God has given to His Church the armor and weapons to withstand the constant assaults of the devil and the world. In Ephesians 6, St. Paul describes this armor that will enable the Christian to stand. This is where our school comes in.
The world is becoming a more treacherous place to live every day. Our children are subjected to temptations we never imagined. Fewer and fewer Christian children are still Christian by the time they reach adulthood. What if there were a way for parents to protect their children and help them to stand with Jesus on the Day of Resurrection? What if there were an alternative to the culture which beckons young people away from the faith? That’s what we do at TLS; that’s why we do it.
Yes, we do have the best education available in Cheyenne. Yes, we will teach your child to think. Yes, we will teach him or her Latin and the great works of Western literature. But better than all of that, we will give your child the tools to stand against the forces of darkness. We teach children what it means that they have been baptized into Christ’s death and resurrection (Romans 6:5-11). We will prepare them to receive the Body and Blood of Christ for the forgiveness of their sins. We teach the Scriptures, the written accounts of God in Christ saving a fallen humanity. We preach Christ crucified, that all our students know that this God is not merely big and good, but all the good He does, He does for you. We teach them Luther’s Small Catechism, a summary of the Christian faith. We teach them the hymns of the church — both modern and ancient — to give them comfort and courage in a dark and fallen world. In short, we give them Christ, in the hope that they would believe in Him and live forever.
And then, we do teach children how to be of some earthly good to their neighbor. Our curriculum is challenging so that your child will learn to think about the weighty matters of life and death, and to be able to think critically about whatever task he is given. And with the ability to analyze situations, arguments, and solutions, he will be able to make good decisions that will benefit his neighbor.
Trinity Lutheran School is committed to classical and Lutheran curriculum and instruction and to share that instruction with an ever increasing number of students in Cheyenne.
Classical education equips learners to carry out successfully their own inquiries into what is true, good, and beautiful, and is shaped on all levels by a manner of teaching that nurtures the basic language skills: grammar, logic, and rhetoric.
