Our faculty and staff truly believe that every individual is blessed with special gifts and unique abilities. It is our goal to help each student realize, appreciate, and use his/her God-given talents. By providing a variety of co-curricular programs, we feel we give each student the opportunity to grow and become a well rounded Christian individual and “Champion for Christ.”
On an annual basis, students at Zion participate in local, district and state academic competitions. Over the years our students have been very successful by winning the district event two out of the past three years and sending students onto the state meet.
Along with the academic competitions, many students are active in other co-curricular programs such as music, drama, and athletics. The music and drama departments present two musical productions each school year. The middle school students also compete in our athletic program. The students who choose to compete are placed onto elementary (5th & 6th grade) or junior high (7th & 8th grade) teams in football, volleyball, basketball, and track. Zion’s junior high teams have been successful throughout the years, with the 2010 girls’ basketball team and the 2012 boys’ basketball team winning the State Lutheran Basketball Championship.
In an effort to build strong Christian leaders, Zion students participate in Student Council and National Junior Honor Society. These students work eagerly in developing and overseeing school-wide activities and community projects. Through these experiences, these young people are gaining wonderful leadership skills.
