Welcome to Zion Lutheran Church and School! For over 130 years Zion Lutheran Church and School have prioritized Christian education in the Greater Alexandria area. We are excited for you to learn more about us.


Our passion and goal is always to prepare students for life beyond Zion’s doors.  In order to accomplish that goal, we strongly focus on spiritual development and academic excellence.  Spiritual development is essential in the life of a Christian, and the Holy Spirit works through daily exposure and instruction to the Holy Scriptures and their application to daily life.  In addition, our students will be entering a more competitive world than ever before.  Our curriculum develops the background information and critical thinking skills necessary to solve complex problems and prepare for high school and beyond.


We accomplish this through three main objectives. Personal Attention: We get to know our students and develop relationships with our students and our families so that we can meet the needs of each and every student and provide them with the knowledge and tools to be successful. Academic Excellence: We are committed to providing the highest quality academic education for our students. Christian Values: Embedded in the daily activities and academic education of the students are the core values of Christianity which have provided the foundation for the world in which we live.
