I have graduated 2 students (2013 and 2017) from this school and have one more in her Junior year. Trinity's Christian Classical approach prepares their students for college in all aspects of their life: spiritual, academic, physical and socially. The care that teachers show for their students is amazing! These students leave Trinity and are life-time learners!

Trinity Christian School is a hidden gem on the Windward side. Preschool, Elementary, and Secondary are amazing. Christian values and teachers who care about their students.

Trinity Christian School is one of the top schools in Hawaii. Academic standards are very high. Teachers are top quality. We love the classical methods of education-- time-tested methods that really capitalize on the way God created students to learn. And the gospel is taught and preached faithfully. I am grateful to be a part of the TCS family

Relationally focused, academically strong school. Teachers are genuinely here for the students. A friendly and decidedly Christian (not in name only) classical school for your children.
