Pastor's Message

Pastor Elmore

In the fall of 1971, Trinity Lutheran Church in Anaheim Hills began a Christian school as a ministry to its families and the community. Since that first day, students have been welcomed by a loving and caring staff that was and is here for a higher purpose: to offer the best academic education in an environment that helps students see the world and their place in it from a Christian perspective. We believe all students are created and gifted by God with a calling to offer themselves to Him and to others. We seek to grow minds and hearts. We place a high priority on academics and building confidence through the vehicles of public speaking, performance, academics and athletic competition. The Trinity difference has grown the minds and hearts of our students and will continue to do so for generations to come. I hope you will discover the Trinity difference personally.
Pastor James Elmore, M.Div.
