School Notes

  • At Trinity, we celebrate the unique characteristics of each child. Our focus on developing the "whole child" is designed to guide students from center-based learning in preschool to leadership and student-centered learning in middle school. Academic programs challenge students while preparing them for success in the most rigorous secondary school programs. Our Blue Ribbon Award from the U.S. Department of Education is an indicator of the academic success achieved at Trinity. At the same time, our wide variety of resource offerings allows students to explore their potential in athletics, foreign language, technology, and the arts. There are many opportunities for children to excel at Trinity. Our graduates enter high school as academically, socially, and emotionally mature young people.
