Holy Trinity School is a Catholic, co-educational, elementary school (PreK-8) that is committed to the Jesuit traditions of academic excellence, the service of faith and the promotion of justice.
Our community - school and parish families - seeks to develop students who will manifest these traditions in an awareness of self, a love of learning and a desire to serve others. We prepare our students to act with initiative and integrity and to engage the world as a place in which God can found in all things.

School Reviews

We have 4 kids who have graduated or are currently at HTS DC. We love this place. Top rate teachers, huge sense of community, great families, great kids. Our kids started all there at age 3... and what a happy place it has been. It was a tough choice picking schools, our local Arlington schools were great academically but I had heard a few complaints from neighbors about teachers, policies, principals. But in the end we are so glad we went with HTS. Love the Jesuit influence, not to overbearing, pretty open minding but still Catholic, very caring and with a great tradition of teaching the kids to help others. The academics are great, but I do not sense unnecessary competition. Love it. Not cheap, but well worth it. Kids are only kids once, and only grow up to be good people once if at all.
