Academic Support

Trinity’s academic support aids students from a variety of backgrounds in accessing the outstanding education that Trinity offers. Students in the academic support program may have long or short term medical disabilities, a documented disability, a need for assistance in English language acquisition, be a participant in the online summer school program, or be recommended for academic support by the Director of Studies. This program is a collaboration between the student, teachers, parents, and the learning support teacher. The ultimate goal is not just to help the student achieve academic success, but to help students realize their strengths as they work to improve areas of weakness, all while developing coping skills for future challenges.
