Our grading scale is rigorous as well, with A = 93-100%, B = 86-92% and C=78-85% and our A Honor Roll is truly an honor as students must achieve a 3.5 or higher GPA and the B Honor Roll at 3.0 to 3.4 GPA.
  • Every student is encouraged to join in extracurricular programs and each student can fully participate in almost any activity they would like, due to our smaller size. Holy Trinity offers girls and boys the opportunity to compete in a number of sports including: football, volleyball, baseball, softball, basketball, cross country and track. The teams compete in the Minnesota Christian Athletic Association (MCAA). In addition, we offer extra-curricular activities such as Knowledge Bowl, One-Act Play, Student Council, National Honor Society and yearbook, as well as many others.

In an average school year, more than 1,000 hours of student community service are given. In addition, the school annually holds a fall and spring service day and provides raking, painting and general cleaning for area residents.
  • Holy Trinity also offers Tiny Trojans Preschool for children ages 3-4. Our state-licensed program introduces pre-kindergartners to school in a safe, Christian-based atmosphere. We also offer after school care.
  • Holy Trinity is committed to remaining an affordable parochial school. Elementary school tuition is just $2,550 and high school tuition is only $4,000. However, since the true cost of educating each student is substantially higher, the school is supported by the parishioners of Holy Trinity Catholic Church. In addition, each year the school benefits from fundraisers such as the Winstock Country Music Festival, Spring Fling Dinner Auction, Marathon for Nonpublic Education and donations from alumni and friends of the school.
