All of my children have attended this school. It has been a blessing to have so many wonderful people in our lives - both staff and other parents. This school has a great support system and a high standard of academics. All of my children have moved on with great success! Thank you, Trinity, for helping to prepare them for life!

Trinity has been the perfect fit for our daughter. Being very reserved and shy, the small class size and one-on-one attention she receives every day is priceless. I also love to see her faith grow daily. She comes home and tells us about the Bible stories she learned and it makes me smile to overhear her sing the songs they learn. Trinity has been great for our daughter, just as it was great for me 20 years ago. I have many fond memories of going to school there, and I am sure my daughter will too.
