Greetings from Trinity High School!
Trinity High School has blessed my life since I arrived in 9th grade in 1981. Over nearly 40 years, I have been a Trinity student, teacher, parent, and now I serve as the school’s first alumni principal. Trinity has transformed my life.
As a student, Trinity encouraged my development in every way, in keeping with the school’s motto–“Ad Summum Bonum” (“To the Highest Good”). My relationship with God, the “Highest Good,” began within these halls. I saw peers unashamed to express their faith and teachers who served sacrificially. I developed gifts in academics because I was challenged to reach my personal best. I enjoyed opportunities to compete in athletics and to pursue practically any interest I had in extracurricular activities. These core features of Trinity High School—faith, rigorous academics, and extracurricular opportunities—abide in this learning community to this day.
Still, a lot has changed. Trinity has partnered with colleges and universities, guaranteeing Trinity students admission and merit scholarships. Our storied athletic program of 20 varsity sports has added wrestling and lacrosse in the last decade. Students enjoy increased mentoring and leadership opportunities through our new House System, and the benefit from expanded opportunities to live their faith through opportunities like the Kairos retreat.
For most seniors, Kairos represents a highlight of their Trinity experience. Kairos has ignited the spirit of our students with God’s love for more than a generation. At no other school in our area would graduates list a spiritual retreat as a highlight of adolescence. Kairos helps Trinity change lives.
At its heart, Trinity is concerned with the whole student—body, mind, and spirit. Each student is known by name and builds our family while reaching “to the Highest Good.” Welcome, and God bless you!
