On Trinity Prep's friendly campus, you'll be welcomed by a warm sense of community and genuine connection among students, faculty, staff, and alumni.  Connections established here lead to lifelong friendships and professional camaraderie.  You won't get lost in the crowd and you'll never feel alone.
An average class size of fewer than 20 students and a student-to-teacher ratio of 12 to 1 makes for a great collaborative, community atmosphere that is ideal for growth.  The faculty includes 78 men and women, and 62% hold advanced degrees in their field.
Athletics are an integral part of the lives of the students at Trinity Prep.  Interscholastic athletics provide students with the opportunity to experience self-discipline, teamwork, commitment, sacrifice, and dedication as a means of achieving goals. Through athletics, students develop greater confidence, increased self-esteem, and learn to accept personal responsibility.
Approximately 70% of our students participated on one of our 52 athletic teams.  Sixteen sports are offered with boys lacrosse being the most recent addition.
Trinity Prep has a thriving and diverse visual and performing arts program.  Many of the fine arts faculty continue to be working artists while training the next generation of students to become artists and to become discriminating and appreciative audiences for all the arts.
