Returning Students

Registration is now open for the 2017-2018 school year! Completing the registration process early is vital to our planning – hiring qualified teachers, determining class sizes and programming – in order to meet the educational needs of our students for the upcoming year.

We have had an exciting first half of the 2016-2017 school year, and we know God is going to continue do His good work in our school for the remainder of the year and into the next. In the past few years and months here at ZLS, God has supplied our needs and the needs of our students in many areas:

  • 6 new dynamic teaching staff members
  • New flooring and paint in several classrooms and hallways
  • A brand new playground
  • AIMSWeb Plus testing with programmed analysis of results
  • The ZLS Christmas Extravaganza
  • Elective Hour (grades 5-8)
  • 1-to-1 technology in grades 5th-8th through the BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) Program
  • Revival of the Challenge Program (enrichment) in February

We know that His goodness will not end there. He has already began His good work for Zion’s future as we prepare for:

  • Safety and Security upgrades to the interior and exterior of the building
  • Streamlining our school information and communication with the use of TADS (enrollment, tuition and total billing, and school information system with TADS Educate)
  • Improving reading instruction with the use of reading groups in grades K-2

You have entrusted your precious children to our care and invested greatly in their academic and spiritual futures, and we are honored to bear that responsibility. We are looking ahead with excitement and hope at the opportunity that we have to continue to provide our students with an excellent academic program while living out God’s Word and showing the love of Jesus Christ. We pray that you will remain a part of it.


TADS (Tested and Designed by Schools)

Registration – Now complete registration information and pay registration fee entirely ONLINE! TADS will walk you through every step, and we are always here to help! Registration is not complete until the registration fee has been paid to TADS. This secures your child’s seat in his or her classroom.

All re-enrolling students of Zion Lutheran School will receive an email directly from TADS with instructions on how to enroll for next school year. If you do not receive that email, please contact the school office at 618-234-0275.

Tuition Assistance – We have funds available to assist our families with tuition. Individuals who wish to receive assistance either through the Lutheran Elementary School Association (LESA) and their “Building Blocks” funds or from Zion Lutheran School must complete this process in the “Financial Aid” section of TADS by April 1st.

Zion Lutheran Church and School are pleased to, once again, offer a multi-student Grant to families with 3 or more students enrolled at Zion. Grant amounts will be communicated in May with our tuition assistance letters.

Tuition Payments – All tuition and billing (Extended Care, Kitchen, fees, etc.) will be done through TADS. You will be sent tuition agreements and instructions. All families MUST be registered in TADS to attend Zion Lutheran School.

If you have any questions throughout this process please contact TADS Support at 800-477-8237 or support@tads.com, M-F 7am-8pm CST. You can also feel free to call the school office for assistance at 618-234-0275.

We encourage you to spread the word in our community of how God is working through the lives of the students and staff to provide a loving, Christian, educational environment. Please also keep us in your prayers as we move through this very important enrollment period.#Whatever God has in store for Zion, we hope to continue to carry out Christ’s mission here in Belleville.

In His Service,
Mrs. Ananda Baron
