Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Trinity School gives each child a voice. We guide children to self-discovery. We celebrate the child's growth in critical thinking, character development, and social responsibility.
Trinity School encourages preschool to fifth grade children from all backgrounds to love learning. We foster rigorous academics grounded in child-centered content. Trinity upholds the values and traditions of the Episcopal Church and honors the role of the family in educating children. The legacy of a Trinity dducation is a curious mind and a discerning heart.
