Is trinitas Accredited?
Yes, since 2009 Trinitas Christian School has been accredited by the Association of Classical Christian Schools, a nationwide organization with hundreds of member schools. Trintas is one of about 50 schools in the United States to hold this prestigious accreditation.
does a student have to be christian to attend trinitas?
Trinitas operates on the covenant model of Christian school admission, meaning that at least one parent of each family must be an active, professing Christian, involved in a local church. Partnership with parents is central to the Trinitas mission and vision. When the church, home, and school are aligned in what they teach, students receive a clear and consistent message about what it means to be committed to the truth of Scripture.
Do you require students to wear uniforms?
Trinitas students wear uniforms purchased from the Land’s End school uniform catalog. Monday – Thursday are casual uniform days and Fridays are dress uniform days.
how involved can parents be in the classroom?
At Trinitas we strive for a familial atmosphere, so we love for parents to get involved. Parents are welcome to visit and sit in on classes most any time. And of course, our feast days, field trips, and special activities are successful because of our active parent volunteers.
Do all trinitas students learn latin?
No classical education is complete without the study of Latin, so yes, all students in third through eighth grades study Latin. One goal of Latin at Trinitas is for students to read classical texts in their original language, but there are other very practical reasons for learning Latin as well. For example, Latin requires students to organize and manipulate in their minds numerous combinations of word endings and special constructs; therefore, through the study of Latin students’ minds are trained toward higher order thinking skills. In fact, studies show that learning Latin not only strengthens students’ ability to process and manipulate written and spoken language, but it also improves their ability to process and manipulate logic and math.
I am currently enrolling my (3rd-8th grade) child who has never studied latin. What should i do?
Currently, Trinitas offers all Latin classes at the same time in our daily schedule so students can attend the class that matches their ability level. There are also opportunities for students to work ahead to catch up to their grade level.
does trinitas emphasize stem education?
The math offerings at Trinitas include pre-calculus/trigonometry and calculus. In science students go as far as chemistry II and marine biology. Some of our students also dual enroll in local colleges over the summer for math options such as College Algebra. For years our students have outscored public schools, independent schools, private Christian schools, and even other ACCS accredited schools in math on their ACT and SAT scores. Trinitas does not, however, emphasize STEM. Science and math receive the same emphasis as literature, history, philosophy, and language. Several Trinitas alumni have become successful engineers even though the school does not offer any technology or engineering programs. That is the power of classical education.
if my kid graduates from trinitas, will he or she be able to get into college?
Trinitas is not a college prep-school, so getting into a good college is not the ultimate goal of a Trinitas education. 99% of our more than 100 Trinitas graduates, however, have gone on to attend schools like Auburn University, Covenant College, Emory University, Florida State University, Furman University, Hillsdale College, Lipscomb University, McGill University, Mississippi State University, New Saint Andrews College, Pensacola Christian College, Rice University, Samford University, St. John’s College, The King’s College, Union University, University of Alabama, University of Central Florida, University of Dallas, University of Florida, University of Mississippi, University of Mobile, University of Southern Mississippi, University of West Florida, Washington and Lee University, Wheaton College, and others.
how much is tuition?
Tuition at Trinitas for the 2019-20 school year is $7,100 per child for all grade levels. The school provides some tuition assistance for families who demonstrate financial need. If Trinitas is the right place for your child, but your family needs financial assistance, we will do our best to make a Trinitas education financially feasible.
How involved are parents at Trinitas?
It is our belief that parents are responsible for educating their children (Deuteronomy 4:9 and 6:6-9). For this reason Trinitas Christian School provides a service to Christian parents for the education of their children. Parents are encouraged to participate at all organizational levels: volunteering in and out of the classroom, serving on/with the faculty or staff, and working on/with the governing board. We welcome parental visitations to the classroom and joining children for lunch when schedules permit. Parental involvement and support in the classroom, on field trips, at special services/programs and annual events are also expected.
