Creating Scholars, Nurturing Spirituality and Embracing Diversity in Charlotte’s Center City

Trinity Episcopal School is the only K-8 independent school in Uptown Charlotte. Our passionate and innovative faculty are committed to creating scholars by redefining academic rigor using our workshop approach, inspiring a responsibility for students’ own learning and promoting their curiosity in the classroom and the world around them.
As an urban school Trinity has the distinct advantage of an extended campus that includes Center City destinations as ImaginOn, Discovery Place and the Mint Museum. 

Our school community nurtures spirituality through the reason, acceptance and service found within the Episcopal tradition by proclaiming respectful appreciation for all human beings.
We embrace the richness of diversity by encouraging students to be socially-conscious and civically-engaged ambassadors of grace, honor and respect in the world.
We instill honor through high expectations for responsibility, respect, kindness and integrity, all found in our Honor Code.
 

The powerful combination of creating scholars, nurturing spirituality and embracing diversity enables us to inspire, develop and send forth the future leaders of tomorrow.
For more information, schedule a tour of our beautiful Uptown campus, attend an open house or visit www.TEScharlotte.org.
