Fundamental Goals and Purposes
At Trinity School, our foundational belief is that active learning is essential to the full development of a child’s potential. Active learning occurs most effectively in settings that provide developmentally appropriate learning opportunities designed to strengthen and extend the cognitive, physical, and emotional development of all students.
In every Trinity School classroom students engage in educational tasks and participate in developmentally appropriate experiences. Here, students and teachers form active learning partnerships to support the students’ development and students are supported as they engage in important social connections with other students and adults. Trinity School promotes independent thinking, active learning, a “can-do” attitude, and active, inquisitive imaginations in our students. While students develop these attributes at different rates and in varying degrees, Trinity’s instructional approaches are designed to foster self-confidence and social competence in all students. Trinity’s students leave our school prepared for the necessary lifelong education, on-the-job training, teamwork, and problem-solving demands of today’s society.
Statement of Faith/Faith-Based Education
At Trinity School, we believe in the Holy Trinity: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe in the deity of Christ, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His vicarious and atoning death, His resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and His personal return. And we work to honor our faith in the Trinity daily through our mission and educational structure.
Trinity observes a non-denominational Christian philosophy, encouraging tolerance and appreciation of all faith traditions. Each school day begins with a time of prayer, devotion, or meditation. Giving thanks before lunch is a daily routine. Chapel is held each week but attendance is not required. In chapel, we share Bible stories, sing, and worship. All teachers participate in chapel, and students are encouraged to participate to the degree in which they are comfortable.
