I can't say enough awesome things about Holy Trinity Episcopal Academy. My daughter is thriving in 7th grade, the last 4 years have been amazing. The curriculum is challenging, the teachers are proactive and helpful. The communication from the teachers and staff is amazing. We always know what is going on and what to expect, in each class, in the grade level and campus wide. The teachers have done a tremendous job in this difficult time, pivoting between in-class students and online students. The resources, the technology and the hands on activities are amazing. There are so many opportunities for after school enrichment, the arts, sports, clubs and other activities. If you have ever wondered about HT, I highly recommend scheduling a tour. This was the best decision we have ever made. Go Tigers!

We have two kids at the Holy Trinity lower school. We moved to the Melbourne area a little over a year ago and we're going to put our kids in public school, but the classes were very crowded. We researched and made an appointment to visit Holy Trinity,1 and we loved it immediately. Sending our kids to HT is the BEST decision we made. We love the small class sizes, great communication, and quality education. Our kids love the school and have made a lot of friends. The staff and teachers are supportive and nurturing, and we are very happy with our decision!

This is our first year at Holy Trinity and we are absolutely thrilled with our choice to send our son to high school at HT. We actually had a different plan in place, however, after listening to HT families convey their positive experiences and visiting the Upper School campus (a must see- the new athletic field house, weight room and turf field are incredible), we decided to join the HT community to give our son an amazing opportunity. It has been the best decision thus far with welcoming staff, approachable teachers and amazing coaches. All facilities and staff have their focus on every student in mind, body and spirit. Our son has already fit right in with help through the school's ambassador program, which pairs new students with existing students who offer support and guidance. We are beyond happy with our decision to have our son start high school here because Holy Trinity will definitely help him "go anywhere".

This will be our third year at HT with our two children taking part of the Lower school and Upper school. We have been part of private school education before and are no strangers to College Preparatory Schools in Florida. Both our oldest daughter, now a Senior and our youngest son in 6th Grade, have had the opportunity to participate in an environment with rich academics, arts and sports and the advantage of learning to be independent learners and ambassadors of their school that will be active members of their community.Holy Trinity has offered not only what we expected but more. Our children have had the guidance and support of an amazing group of professionals; from teachers to staff, Holy Trinity is a place where leadership is shown through kindness and respect and in which individuals from different backgrounds, cultures and religions are invited to be part of an active community.

My whole family loves this school. We know that it truly shaped our daughter by consistently living into its core values, which are based on respect in all aspects of one's life. The emphasis on developing the whole child by growing mind, body and spirit is transformational. We especially loved the commitment to diversity in the way the school embraces students from all religious backgrounds. Inclusiveness is a hallmark of Episcopal schools, and it works well at Holy Trinity.

Our family`s relationship with HTEA is a long-standing one! Our four children attended HT and now three of our grandchildren are students there, attending both the upper and lower schools. The quality of the education offered, the excellent teachers, the individual attention afforded each child due to the small class size, the range of classes, the character development and the numerous sports and extracurricular activities all contribute to make this the premier educational institution in Brevard County. Whether your children excel, are right on track, or need some extra help in some subjects, their needs will be met. Starting in Kindergarten, each child has multiple opportunities to "present" in front of the class which does wonders for their confidence and self esteem. HTEA strives to meet the academic, spiritual, physical and social needs of the students. It is most definitely their second family and a place where the children feel safe and cared for and, as a result, they LOVE going to school!

Very happy with Lower school (preschool through 6th). My daughter is currently in Fifth grade and started in preschool. It's not just a school; it's a community. Small class sizes (15 or less), challenging curriculum, whole child education. Whole child education means chapel every day, character education program, PE and recess every day, Art, Spanish & French, ample extracurricular activities, education that includes projects, oral presentation, group activities, and science experiments. The teachers truly care about each and every child and make themselves available to meet with parents with any concern. My daughter is thriving academically and socially and this positive enriching environment is part of it.Additionally the staff & faculty have been Phenomenal in 2020-2021 school year with keeping everyone safe due to COVID. Daily screening, plexiglass boxes around desks, sanitizing between class shifts. They do it all with a positive attitude, and I've never heard any complaining from faculty and staff about the extra work.

Having 2 children in Holy Trinity Episcopal Academy (7th grade / Kindergarten), I have only high praise for HTEA education and safety. In response to Covid, HTEA developed safety measures including temperature tracking; mask protocol; school sanitization protocol; UV air filters; webcams and microphones for remote learners, and other precautions. Upper and lower schools offer physical security with on-site deputies and nursing care. HTEA offers strong college prep academics, AP classes, electives, a wide variety of well-coached athletic offerings, and a chapel/character education program. HTEA maintains high standards and expectations to help students easily transition into college. HTEA is small enough for students and faculty to build lifelong friendships, and for students to focus on the challenging curriculum of a private school. HTEA teachers, along with the Administration and College Counseling office, support both students and family. HTEA becomes your child's 2nd family.

My youngest daughter attends HTEA (Holy Trinity Episcopal Academy) lower school, and my oldest attends HTEA upper school. We have been attended HTEA for about 3 years now and we absolutely love how HTEA is molding our girls into smart, amazing and talented young ladies. HTEA develops the mind, body and spirit of each of their students. My daughters are excited to go to school each morning, are willing to spend more time for volunteer hours, their kindness and manners are on point and their faith has grown more than I could imagine. My youngest daughter used to be very hesitant to raise her hand, ask questions to get a better understanding of what is being taught, and HTEA changed that. She raises her hand, asks questions and is able to understand the subject. The things she tells me she learns are absolutely inspiring, and I must say she teaches me some new things almost every day. At HTEA, the teachers take time to help each individual student. Where one student is having trouble, they will take a moment and help that student. If a student is excelling, they will take the time to give them something a little more challenging to keep them curious and excited about learning. I always tell other parents, considering HTEA that this school is family. Not only do your students create everlasting friendships; the parents do, too. You are greeted with smiles and waves in the morning at morning drop off, you are sent off with a bigger smile and "can't wait to see you tomorrow" at dismissal. At HTEA your child can start here and go anywhere, truly.

As parents of two (2) boys, 11th and 9th graders, who have been at HTES since kindergarten, we couldn`t be more pleased with the comprehensive education and growth of our boys have experienced at HTES. The teachers, staff and administration have continued to demonstrate a level of caring and engagement that has far exceeded our expectations. HTES has ensured current academic programs that provide every student a path to reach the student's full potential. With the newly completed $5.5M facilities investment covering improvements at the lower school (pre-k to 6th grades) and upper school (7th to 12th grades), the HTES administration and community has proven again to us that HTES is the best in educating our boys` "Mind, Body & Spirit"!

Our first year at Holy Trinity Episcopal Academy is going GREAT. We can`t imagine any better learning environment for our daughter. The curriculum is excellent and taught by professional Teachers who truly care about our daughter's success. Everyone is so kind and easy to be with, all the students are forward looking with bright futures.

My two girls started at Holy Trinity when they were three years old at the Parish Campus. I never worried about them when they were at school because I knew they were with people who loved them and wanted the best for them. Now that I have one daughter at college doing great and another soon to be graduate I know that the money I invested all those years has been worth it. It is a wonderful feeling knowing your children have the skills they need to be successful at the next level.

We absolutely love our school. We have two children currently attending HT and we could not be happier with the way each child is celebrated and recognized in this community. The teachers and curriculum make sure each child is learning and progressing in developmentally appropriate ways that are both challenging and really engaging. And we absolutely love the way children are exposed to art, Spanish, music and STEAM regularly, while having the opportunity to move and enjoy PE/recess daily. Our school is really helping our children grow in every aspect of who they are as learners and little people-teaching the whole child in ways that welcome us in as a family! Great teachers, great school leadership, an all around great community!!

We love this school! The Lower School has a perfect balance of academics and extracurricular activities. Our children love having PE every day in addition to recess. The lessons taught through the Character Education program reinforce our family values at home. We couldn't be happier with our decision to send our children to HT!

We have a daughter at Holy Trinity Episcopal Academy "HTEA" who is currently in 8th grade and thriving there. We have found that HTEA provides a nurturing, caring environment, while at the same time providing a challenging academic program. There is a wonderful emphasis on character development as well. Our daughter has participated in sports (basketball and swimming), music (orchestra), and extracurricular activities including archery and Honor Society. HTEA has a full suite of such activities and a broad academic range including academic AP courses as well as electives in foreign languages, the arts, and technology. Beyond all this, there is a wonderful sense of community in being part of the larger HTEA family, with many opportunities for family involvement. Your children truly can start here and go anywhere.

As the parent of TWO Holy Trinity graduates (Classes of 2012 & 2014), I can honestly say my kids ''received the finest educations Brevard County has to offer.'' The academics are accelerated, even in comparison to other private schools in the county, and as a result, both of my kids were extremely prepared to compete for admission into top universities. They were accepted into EACH university to which they''d applied, plus they received scholarship offers too! After years of hard work and dedication, it was a great feeling to see our kids in the position to ''review all their offers'' and make THEIR choice about their future! ''Education'' has always been the holy grail in our house though, since our kids were old enough to walk and talk. If parents are willing to set the bar for their kids, Holy Trinity can provide the education and the guidance that will let them ''grab that bar!'' The school is small enough that there's a ''hometown feel'' and yet big enough to compete in the real world. My kids are now friends with people who once were their teachers, which is a testament to the genuine care provided by HTEA teachers. If you''re considering an HTEA education for your kids, take the time to check-out the credentials of the educators at this school --- you''ll be AMAZED at the levels of education attained by the teachers and even the office staff! (VERY impressive on ANY level!) We were a two-parent family, who made sacrifices to pay the full tuition for our kids, year after year, because their education was our top priority, as we know it's a steppingstone to success and the best lives possible. So while, ''yes'' the tuition cost is high at HTEA, the return on the investment is one of the best you''ll ever see! And besides, who can put a value on your kids'' futures?

Sending your child to a single-sex school is one of several options you have when it comes to private schools.
Each state sets its own teacher certification requirements. While many private schools do not require you to be certified, it is in your best interests to obtain certification. This article includes contact information for state education offices so you can begin the process.
Marketing the small private school can be done affordably and effectively. We suggest five easy steps to make that happen.
