What distinguishes Trinity High School from other schools in the area?
Trinity educates the whole person—in mind, body, and spirit. Our focus is not on standardized tests or quickly moving students through to graduation. Instead our teachers and administration know each student by name. Trinity students create meaningful relationships with faculty and with one another through retreats, the House system, and athletics. Trinity students rely on their morals and faith to navigate difficult choices that all teenagers face. They hone their leadership skills through opportunities in the classroom and on the field. Trinity means community. It means faith. It means family.
How does Trinity develop students spiritually?
Through daily theology classes, annual retreats, and regular opportunities to perform community service, Trinity students are formed in faith. Spiritual life is ingrained in daily life at Trinity—we remember our classmates in prayer before class, we fundraise to support community efforts financially, and we use our hands to serve the needy inside of school and out. Almost down to the student, the Kairos retreat is named by seniors as a life-changing, faith-deepening, highlight-of-high-school experience.
All students regardless of religious background have these experiences, and non-Catholic students gain as much from learning, participating, and serving as Catholic students do. Tenets such as integrity, self-reflection, and love of neighbor undergird so many faiths, and the inclusion of various perspectives and faith traditions allows for deeper understanding and personal growth of every Trinity student, regardless of faith background.
