  • We were immediately impressed with the caring environment we saw at Trinity- teachers and students showed a kindness to everyone in the school. Learning with enthusiasm is the daily mode of operation, and being in the classroom as a volunteer parent has completely sold me on the consistent top-quality nature of the academic standards. My daughter's teachers model what it means to approach tasks of the day with positive attitude and gratitude for the opportunity to learn and interact in the world God has given to us. Weekly chapel makes a clear impact on my daughter's spiritual growth- she is developing her own faith and learning true respect for people of all faiths and backgrounds thanks to Trinity.
  • Parent, 2nd Grader
  • We chose Trinity School for our child after just one visit. Trinity has all the attributes we were looking for and more: Small class sizes; Caring & engaging teachers; an atmosphere of mutual respect for all. Our child knows all the teachers and staff and they all know him. He is challenged, encouraged and acknowledged every day. We are in our third year at Trinity and there has never been a day where our child has not been excited to go to school!
  • Parent, 2nd Grader
  • We love the small class sizes at Trinity, the creativity and enthusiasm of the excellent teachers and the cooperativeness of the children in the classes. At each grade level my son has had exciting, creative, hands-on activities and projects. They have taken field trips that allow them to "get their hands messy",learning by doing.
  • Parent, 3rd Grader and Kindergartener
  • Trinity School is helping my daughter not only discover and nurture her own gifts but also recognize unique gifts in others. School is so much more than academics. The grades on a report card do not define a student. I know that at Trinity School, my daughter is defined by her strengths, not her weaknesses. She is recognized as a beloved child of God and is nurtured in an environment that feeds the kind of intellectual curiosity that will help her to reach her full potential.
  • Parent, 7th Grader
  • My family loves being a part of the Trinity School of Frederick. My children are excited to go to school in the morning, which is fostering their love for learning. They are in a secure, nurturing environment, which challenges each child to realize his/her own potential, allowing them to be schooled without distraction. The dedicated and highly learned staff is unrivaled in their commitment to their students. Never before have I seen teachers with such devotion and love for their job! Trinity School of Frederick is a very special place. Even my children's Grandparents take pride in their involvement with their Grandchildren's once in a lifetime school. Parent, 2nd Grader and Kindergartener
  • Our son began attending Trinity School three years ago, and has made incredible progress in school ever since. He gets much more individualized instruction there, as Trinity teachers are quick to assess the strengths and weaknesses of each student and adjust teaching methods accordingly. Most importantly, he comes home every day with a story to tell that always makes the same point: he loves learning at Trinity.
  • Parent, 3rd Grader
  • My son has truly flourished at Trinity and absolutely loves going to school. He feels strong sense of stability here and constantly comes home talking about how much he enjoys his teachers and friends. My husband and I particularly like the ongoing dialog surrounding our child's progress at Trinity. Pam Seale ? The Head of School, along with his teachers fully coordinate with us to understand where our child stands at any given time. We feel so fortunate to have found such a dynamic and caring private school in Frederick, Maryland.

School Reviews

Our children became students at Trinity in the 2012-2013 school year. One child in 2nd grade and the other in Kindergarten. Our children LOVE everything about the school from the teachers to the activities. The teachers are outstanding, the curriculum is fun and challenging and the entire school atmosphere is so loving, you can''t help but want to be a part of it all. There is PE four days a week, art classes, music classes, Spanish, field trips and so much more. The extra curricular activities are great as well, not just sports, but a well rounded selection for the children to be involved in. My children love it here!
