Zion Lutheran School was founded in 1967 in a one-room schoolhouse as a ministry of Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church. Our first school year, Zion served 21 students in grades 1 through 8. Since that time, by the grace of God Zion was able to construct a much larger facility, expanded to grades Preschool through 8, and offers an extended childcare program. For more information see our History of Zion Video.


Zion’s curriculum has been carefully designed to provide for the spiritual, intellectual, social, and physical needs of every student. As a result, it reflects the requirements and standards of the Colorado Department of Education for schools in the state of Colorado. With the interests of our students in mind, the curriculum is evaluated and updated on a yearly basis by the faculty with the purpose of providing the best instruction possible.

The Word of God is the most important subject in our school curriculum. It is not only taught as a separate subject, but is also incorporated, where appropriate, in all subjects of the curriculum. It is our intent that students learn to connect and apply God’s Word to every aspect of their lives. For more information on subjects taught, see our Curriculum.
