Our Mission

Our mission is to provide Christ-centered academic excellence and care for the whole child that equips them for lifelong learning and service.

Holy Trinity Lutheran School is a co-educational Lutheran day school located in the heart of South Tampa. Holy Trinity believes in working with parents to enrich every child’s mind, heart, body and soul. Academics alone are not enough. Intelligence plus morality, character, spirituality and virtue help lay the foundation for a successful, happy and healthy life.

Founded in 1958, HTLS enrolls students in preschool (late twos, PK3, VPK 4) and Kindergarten-6th Grade. The school offers an enriching and rewarding academic education in a loving and safe Christian environment. We are committed to the moral, spiritual, intellectual, physical and creative enrichment of our students. Additionally, our students possess diverse academic interests and abilities and ethnic and socio-economic backgrounds, which we feel are important elements of a well rounded educational experience.

Christ Centered

I bear witness in my teaching and interactions with others by recognizing teachable moments to explain Christ’s relevance and love.

Acts 22:15 – “You will be his witness to all men of what you have seen and heard”.


I put myself in the other person’s shoes. Their concerns, personal life, and their success bring us closer together.

Ephesians 4:2 – “Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love”.


I discuss issues with my colleagues to work through challenges with them. Bonds of trust are established when I communicate openly, respectfully, and honestly with them.

Ephesians 4: 25 – “Therefore each of you must put off falsehood and speak truthfully to his neighbor, for we are all members of one body”.


I grow as an individual and develop a successful career when I participate in educational and other training opportunities.

John 15:16 – “You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit, fruit that will last.”


I own my actions and the outcomes of my work – both good and bad. Instead of waiting for someone else to do it or speak up, I take responsibility to make sure that work gets done.

Romans 14: 12 – So then, each of us will give an account of himself to God”.


I am actively involved with and give back to the communities we serve. I look for ways to help others by giving of myself.

1 Peter 4:10 – “Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in various forms”.


I recognize that change is inevitable and I will embrace change as an opportunity to grow.

Acts 22:10 – “What shall I do Lord? I asked. Get up, the Lord said, and go into Damascus. There you will be told all that you have been assigned to do.”
