  • The mission of Trinity School is to educate students in transitional kindergarten to grade twelve within the framework of Christian faith and conviction-teaching the classical tools of learning; providing a rich yet unhurried curriculum; and communicating truth, goodness, and beauty. At Trinity School we seek to create a community in which there is delight in learning and an atmosphere that encourages the sort of intellectual, moral, and aesthetic development that is fitting for those who bear the image of God.

The caliber and character of Trinity School's graduates drew us to learn more about this incredible community. My wife was entrenched in the college admissions mania with a 9 year career with the Morehead-Cain Scholarship Foundation. She was an Advisor to three Scholarship recipients who were Trinity graduates. These young leaders were poised and successful. They had a strong sense character that demonstrated maturity and integrity in the way they interacted with others. They realized the value of reflection and had the ability to articulate their opinions in a respectful way - open to hearing and learning from others` perspectives. They had a strong sense of self and purpose about how they were spending their time. These things marked a different type of college applicant and mature young adult.Simply put, these values and motivations of these Trinity graduates reflected the young women we aspire to launch into the "real world" someday.We were impressed by current Trinity students too as it was clear they had a deep desire to explore, better understand, develop, and most importantly share their gifts with the world. But likely what we fell in love with the most was the mission-driven authenticity and warmth. There's something about knowing that the place where your children will spend so much of their childhood and young adulthood aligns with your core values as a family. It's a gift for our children and our family - and one for which we're forever grateful.
