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?
