Admissions Policies

 
POLICY OF NONDISCRIMINATION
 
Trinity Lutheran School (formerly Baton Rouge Lutheran School) admits students of any race, color, creed, sex, national and/or ethnic origin, to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, creed, sex or national and/or ethnic origin or ancestry in the administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship program, or athletic and other school administered programs.
 
MEETING OUR STUDENTS' NEEDS
 
We cannot serve every student who applies for admission.  Our small classes, caring environment and dedicated teachers allow us to help most students learn and grow, but some students are in need of specialized assistance.  Trinity Lutheran School does consider all requests for reasonable accommodations, but it is limited in its ability to serve students.  The responsibility to inform TLS of the nature of a student's disability and request an accommodation lies with the parent or guardian.  On a case-by-case basis, the school principal will consider the school's ability to meet the needs of prospective students and discuss options for accommodations during the family interview.
