OUR MISSION

We educate students with learning differences, each according to their specific needs, and we do it in a supportive and encouraging environment.

A One-of-a-Kind, Life-Changing School

Trinity School has served Central Oklahoma since 1961 with specialized, tailored academic and social programs designed for students that learn differently.  Over nearly 60 years, we’ve built a one-of-a-kind, life-changing school — a hidden gem in the heart of Oklahoma City. And we’ve done as a community of committed educators, families and community partners.

Trinity’s ability to focus on the varied learning needs of each individual pupil empowers those students to achieve their full academic and personal potential.  Our school changes the lives of the students and families we serve.

Trinity’s entire student-focused approach, increasing the breadth and depth of the classes, activities, and services available to each Trinity family create the pillars of our success.

At Trinity School, part of our foundational beliefs includes the importance of that active learning.  We believe this 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

For decades, Trinity School’s logo has been the  Triquetra.  The Triquetra symbolizes the ‘holy trinity – God as father, son and holy spirit. Trinity observes a non-denominational bible-based 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.

History of Trinity School

Founded in 1961, Trinity has evolved over the last decade to serve children with learning differences that include autism, ADHD, dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia, auditory and sensory processing issues, anxiety, and developmental or intellectual delays.  Its K-12 program is unique in its approach to individualized instruction that helps each student reach his or her fullest academic and social potential.

“Moving into the historic Edgemere Elementary School location allows Trinity School the opportunity to expand our innovative programs for students throughout greater Oklahoma City who have learning differences,” said Jamie Lewallen, president of the Board of Trustees for the school. “This building’s community legacy spans over a century, and we are so honored to usher in this new chapter.”

Built in 1912, the site has been in continuous use as a school for over 100 years.  It has undergone extensive renovations since August 2019 and features large classrooms, a computer learning center, a new gymnasium, a whole-school storm shelter, and other educational technology features.
