Founded in 1709, Trinity School challenges the minds, fires the imagination and trains the bodies of New York city boys and girls.
Trinity's mission, stated in carefully considered terms, is essentially to provide its students with a setting—intellectual, moral, and physical—in which they can pursue the elements of a liberal education.
We understand the idea of liberal education is: reading and writing accurately and truthfully; being curious and critical-minded; opening our minds to the ideas of others; questioning authority; maintaining self-respect and respect for the other.
