Organizations & Activities
Trinity offers students a wide variety of extracurricular opportunities.
With the development of the total person at the core of our philosophy, Trinity School believes it is essential to offer students a wide variety of extracurricular opportunities through which they might find and develop their personal gifts and talents. A diverse selection of clubs, organizations, honorary societies, and class trips provide Trinity students the opportunity to grow, learn, lead others, and work together for a common goal.
Students inspired by specific academic studies can supplement their classroom experiences through organizations such as Science Club, Key Club, Leo Club, Interact Club, Youth Legislature, Trinity Ambassadors, FCA, SGA, various language clubs, and Yearbook. In an effort to recognize and encourage academic excellence in its students, Trinity recognizes a number of clubs and organizations: National Honor Society, National Junior Honor Society, Mu Alpha Theta, and French, Latin, and Spanish honor societies. Academic competition is available through participation in the Trinity Academic Competition Team (TACT) program. TACT members participate in a number of competitions including Scholars’ Bowl, Enviro Bowl, and Science Olympiad.

Youth In Government is a student led organization in which students from all across the state of Alabama collaborate with the YMCA and are involved in mock governmental positions.

The TPS Youth In Government program participates in two community service project (fall and spring), and two youth in government conferences (youth judicial and youth legislature.)
The Interact Club is a branch of the Rotary Club and is for young people ages 12-18 who want to join together to tackle the issues in their community that they care most about. Through Interact, students carry out hands-on service projects, make international connections, develop leadership skills, and most importantly have fun!
The Trinity Key Club has been helping the Montgomery region for more than ten years. They participate in many volunteer projects ranging from helping the Salvation Army to cleaning up the streets in the areas. Many accomplishments have been made recently and the are striving to do more for the areas. We hope you enjoy looking at the ways we take matters into our own hands here in the heart of Alabama!
The Key Club runs canned food drives, coat drives and more for the city of Montgomery. Without these organizations, none of this would be possible. Thank you for your help!
I pledge, on my honor, to uphold the Objects of Key Club International; to build my home, school and community; to serve my nation and God; and combat all forces which tend to undermine these institutions.
