  • School Hours: The main entrance of the school opens at 8:00am. Classes begin with morning announcements at 8:15am. The school day concludes at 3:00pm with afternoon announcements and dismissal.
  • Parental Communication and Involvement: Trinity`s website (TrinityLI.org) provides constant updates to parents on school news, announcements, class notes, and more. Trinity also provides frequent updates every week on our official Facebook page.

Our PTFA (Parent Teachers Friends Association) provides parents with an opportunity to participate in many different school-wide events throughout the school year.
  • Testing: Trinity does not participate in any New York State testing. Trinity administers the Terra Nova Standardized Test to monitor students` progress and monitor schoolwide performance. Students in 8th-grade Algebra and Living Environment take the New York State Regents exams at the conclusion of the courses to obtain high school credit. 8th-grade Spanish students participate in the annual FLACS exam.

School Reviews

As the senior pastor at Trinity I can vouch from the inside that Trinity is an incredible place of learning and love. Trinity is not the first Lutheran school I have worked at, but it is the most outstanding. We have caring teachers who invest in the lives of their students. You will find no better place to ensure that your child grows both academically and spiritually.
