Curiosity is at the core of everything we do at Trinity Prep. Our students and faculty love to ask questions, find answers and, in turn, ask more questions. We encourage students to explore what excites them and examine their intellectual, artistic, physical and spiritual lives. We encourage students to learn about themselves and the world. They do this through activities and projects that speak to their interests, such as studying photography on a class trip to India, establishing a non-profit, creating a tracking system for space debris, going out for the lacrosse team or tending to the school vegetable garden. We are doers, thinkers and creators.
- 63% of our faculty have advanced degrees
- We provide nearly $2 million in financial assistance annually
