Our History

Trinity School opened in a local church in 1970 with 200 students and 15 instructors. We have a rich history and heritage—a strong foundation. The vision of our founders has guided our school across the past 45 years and enabled Trinity to offer an unparalleled academic experience.

Today, the state-of-the-art, multi-million dollar facility serves over 700 students, and covers 32 acres with 186,147 square feet under roof. Because of our family centered focus, Trinity has grown on a single site to keep siblings, family friends and faculty in close proximity to one another. One valuable outgrowth of the single campus is the appreciation and respect our younger students develop for their upper class role models. Our one-campus environment allows teachers and faculty to develop warm and caring relationships with each student.

Fine facilities are of little value without the teaching expertise necessary to use them effectively. Trinity School is proud of the outstanding instruction that our highly qualified teaching and administrative staff offers. Our team of more than 100 faculty and staff members possesses a variety of gifts and talents; more than half of our teachers have earned advanced degrees. The small classroom size not only provides for more individual attention for each student, but it also allows teachers to develop warm and caring relationships with each young person. An attitude of genuine concern and caring for each individual is a Trinity hallmark.

The teachers at Trinity have a well-developed sense of community. We believe that each child is each adult’s responsibility, and every teacher on campus, from K3 through the 12th grade, appreciates that obligation. The coaches, for example, who guide our varsity sports teams, also teach Lower School physical education and classroom teachers coach sports teams as well. That is the degree to which all teachers at Trinity are invested in your child’s success.
