The Admission process at Trinity School allows families and educators to work together to determine which students will benefit most from our unique academic and social programs.  In the first phase, our expert committee members carefully collect and review testing, psychological, medical, and educational records. In the second phase, families are introduced to school faculty in a classroom setting to conduct basic observations of the prospective student. This process is called Shadowing and lasts three days.   Once admitted, students are subjected to a 90-day probationary period to make sure they are a good fit for Trinity School.

Trinity School does not discriminate in its admissions and enrollment practices, based on race, ethnic background, health condition, socio-economic status, or gender for the students which attend grades K–12 in Oklahoma City.

Student Requirements: Trinity School serves children who exhibit different learning styles, including dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia, ADHD, autism, and or sensory processing issues, anxiety, and developmental or intellectual delays.

Trinity School is not equipped nor is its faculty/staff trained to work with students experiencing severe cognitive, emotional/behavioral, or physical disabilities.

Admission Priority:  First priority will be given to our current students re-enrolling in Trinity School and their siblings that have a diagnosed learning difference. Re-enrollment packets are sent to the families of current students each year in January and the re-enrollment deadline falls in late February. After that open enrollment begins in March, applications are accepted and reviewed.  The number of students accepted each year depends on available space in each grade level.

Admission Age / Conditional Enrollment: According to Section 14 of the School Laws of Oklahoma, the following age requirements must be met for admission:

  • Kindergarten – To be admitted to kindergarten, a student must have turned 5 years of age on or before September 1st.
  • First Grade – To be admitted to 1st grade, a student must have turned 6 years of age on or before September 1st.
  • Conditional Enrollment – Occasionally, students may be admitted under special circumstances, and in those cases we offer a conditional contract. The contract will outline behavioral or performance expectations that the student must meet within a specified time frame (e.g., four to six weeks) to continue with the program. If the conditions are met, the contract may be extended. A decision to extend or not extend the contract is the sole discretion of the Head of School.

Application Process

The admissions committee works hard to identify students who will benefit from Trinity’s program. Applications are thoroughly reviewed and the student’s school history, including records, diagnostic evaluations and parent input determine if the student will thrive in Trinity’s unique scholastic and social program.

Download the Trinity Admissions Enrollment Checklist to review the steps to apply for admissions.

A non-refundable fee of $300 must be submitted with each application.

The Trinity Admissions Form  is required and includes the following information:

  • Parent Authorization for Release of Records
  • Application for Admission
  • Administration Recommendation Form
  • Teacher Recommendation Form
  • Student Emergency Form
  • Parent Questionnaire

You will also need to provide the following for each student:

  • Student Photo
  • Birth Certificate
  • Immunization Records
  • Discipline Record
  • A full psychoeducational or neuropsychoeducational evaluation describing the student’s current cognitive ability as well as academic achievement.
  • Any other professional evaluations that have been administered should be submitted: speech therapy, occupational therapy, psychological evaluations and medical assessments.
  • Copies of current Special Education records (if applicable): Most recent IEP or 504
  • Official transcript (high school only)

After sending in an application packet, parents and school staff meet by phone to explore the goals of each student. A school tour is then scheduled. If the student meets all requirements, a Shadowing visit is scheduled where the student actually joins the classes they would attend for three days.  Once determined, Trinity School sends a letter of acceptance or denial of admission to each applicant family’s home.
