School Notes

  • Trinity Academy integrates authentic Christianity with superior academics. We focus on the classical arts and sciences and offer a full array of high-quality, competitive athletics and award-winning fine arts. Trinity rivals the best schools in the region, boasting 100% college-acceptance and generous per-student college scholarship offers.
  • At Trinity, we begin with the end in view, asking "what skills, what knowledge, what virtues must our graduates possess " We then craft a "top-down, 12 to TK" curriculum. We are innovative in our teaching techniques, while using methods that have stood the test of time. Our approach to education doesn`t work because it is classical. It is classical because it works.
  • As important as our approach to academics is our approach to student spiritual formation. At Trinity, we encourage students to wrestle, test and even doubt their faith in ways that ultimately prove their faith. It is hard to defend a faith that is not your own and college should not be the first time our students hear a salient challenge to their beliefs. Surrounded by godly mentors, who care deeply, we offer students a safe place to work through their questions, doubts and fears. "We don`t tell our students what to think. We teach them how to think."

Providing students with an excellent education grounded in genuine Christianity, Trinity goes unmatched in Raleigh. Having attended the school from K-12, I could not be happier. Anyone looking for a Christian school with excellence in academics, the arts, student culture, personal development, character building, open-mindedness, engaging dialogue, dedicated teachers and faculty, and Christ-centeredness should look to Trinity Academy.

I have a senior at Trinity Academy and another child that graduated a couple of years ago. They started attending Trinity Academy in 2004. It has been one of the best decisions we could have made for our children and our family. The education they have received has not only prepared them for any rigorous college program but it has taught them to be strong critical thinkers and comfortable public speakers. My children have been involved in school as prefects, athletes, and helpers in the after school program and summer camps. Each of these programs have helped developed in them strong service-oriented leadership values and skills. Christ is at center of everything Trinity Academy teaches, be it leadership, athletics or academics. The teachers, coaches and faculty are wonderful and they care about each student's success. Trinity Academy is not just a school, it is a community of faculty, students and parents that make you feel like you are your children belong there.
