Q. Does Trinity School only accept children with learning differences?
A. Yes, that’s all we do. Trinity serves students across a spectrum of learning differences. Some of our students are learning to overcome dyslexia, dysgraphia, or dyscalculia or auditory and sensory processing. Along this spectrum of learning styles, we’ve found that our students fall along a continuum of academic performance that’s not too different from any other school. Whether college-bound, trade school-focused, or doubling down on life skills, what matters at Trinity School is equipping students with learning differences and giving them the tools to do their very best in the world.
