Trinity Christian School Photo #3 - Because we are one campus with two divisions, students in the Lower and Upper Schools are able to come together for projects like this pond science lab. Students in second grade and in the AP Environmental Science classes worked together at different stations near our campus pond.
Trinity Christian School Photo #4 - Students in Grades 7 through 12 have year-round access to school-issued tablets. These allow students to collaborate with peers, access homework and class materials online, and to take part in Trinity's Virtual Learning Days.
Trinity Christian School's purpose is to educate students to the glory of God by bringing them to a proper understanding of God, themselves, and the world He has created.
Since its founding in 1987, Trinity has sought to educate the whole student by pursuing excellence for mind and heart.
This necessarily involves the transmission of truth that engages the mind, grips the heart, and evokes a resonant response of service.
Such knowledge encourages cohesive thinking and shapes godly character by establishing a consistent Christian worldview that is anchored in the creative, sustaining, and redemptive work of Jesus Christ.
Our goal is that our students will be salt and light in their various vocations by living lives that challenge the prevailing culture and bring glory to the Lord Jesus Christ by serving Him well in all places and at all times, whatever the cost.

Trinity is a hidden gem! This is our first year at Trinity and it has been wonderful so far! My kids dove in full speed ahead with Fall and Winter sports. Participating in sports at Trinity has been a great way for my kids to get to know other students and make friends! The teachers, administrators and staff at Trinity are truly special! They care and pray for my children as if they were their own. Every class starts with prayer which I absolutely love! The LAIR (learning center) is amazing! 2 of my children are doing Executive Function Study Hall this year and it`s been so helpful getting them organized. My daughter was diagnosed with ADHD and Dyslexia this year which was quite a shock to us! The NiLD therapy TCS recommended has been so helpful! Trinity is truly a special place and we are thankful to be a part of the TCS family!

As a parent of a lower school and an upper school student, I am so blessed to have found an academically challenging environment that focuses on moral character as well. Trinity provides our children the ability to grow their faith, their minds, and their bodies equally through relationships, academics, extracurriculars and sports. The staff and faculty truly care about the students` long term success in all areas of their lives. A main focus is to teach them biblically based critical thinking skills to help them navigate this busy world we live in. I highly recommend Trinity Christian School Fairfax.

Trinity Christian School is an excellent Christ-centered, college preparatory school. The teachers, faculty, coaches, and administrators all genuinely follow Christ, pray for and pour into their students and help them reach their God-given full potential. There are support systems in place for students who learn differently and struggle with organization and follow-through; various sports programs and after school activities; and social events that enable parents to connect and feel a part of the community. Students are in a safe environment where their teachers are very approachable and continue to encourage them to self advocate. The Health Clinic is always staffed with friendly and caring professional nurses. The students are encouraged daily to glorify and honor God, not only by their teachers, but also by their peers. Finally, the administration has found a balance between providing a top notch education and ensuring the focus remains on God.

Trinity is consistent in providing an excellent, high quality education while also instilling Christian values and sound character in partnership with families. We also enjoy lots of extracurricular activities like community events, athletics and extra learning opportunities. We love it here!

We have found a home at Trinity Christian! When we moved to the area I was sure we would have many fantastic choices for Christian high school education, but I did not find that to be true. We were looking for strong integration of Biblical truth throughout the curriculum and the lives of the faculty and staff, excellent academics that could meet or exceed the already high-standard of Northern Virginia, a full complement of activities and sports, caring faculty and administration, and a beautiful campus to serve as a respite of the "crazy busy" of this area. But as we searched for options, only one school throughout this busy area could meet these standards- Trinity. Our children are academically ahead of their local peers, and are learning to live and breathe their faith as well. Other qualities I love about Trinity: integration of K-12 on one campus, beautiful facilities, sports starting in 6th grade but that you can join as a more novice player, many opportunities for new students and parents to become part of the Trinity family, the Capstone Thesis students complete in their senior year and defend orally, the strong record of student admittance into top universities and colleges, "perfect" class sizes- graduating around 70 students per year, excellent college advising, a full slate of fine and performing arts offerings, and the opportunity to openly pray with your classmates and teachers. What a gift and blessing!

TCS is a school that focuses on the entire student. Their staff is amazing and always willing to help and support the students! We are so thankful we made the decision 9 years ago to enroll our two children at Trinity!

Trinity Christian School graduates leave school ready to succeed and lead at the college level. As high school is now in our family's rearview mirror, I am thrilled with the excellent education my children have recieved.

I have had my three children in Trinity Christian School since we moved back to the area over 5 years ago and it has been one of the best decisions we have made for our family. The Trinity faculty and administration feel like an extension of our family and it is comforting to send your kids off to school every day knowing that they are happy, challenged and that their teachers truly care for them. We have found Trinity to be a solid Christian environment without feeling legalistic. My kids have grown in character and knowledge as a result of their time at Trinity. I would highly recommend this school to anyone in the area considering Christian education.

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.
