Trinity Episcopal School: Creating Scholars, Nurturing Spirituality, Embracing Diversity
At Trinity Episcopal School, we nurture curious and empathetic scholars who go on to high school and college equipped with experience and knowledge of how to live and work as ethical and responsible citizens of the world. Our educational philosophy values the development of essential academic knowledge through collaboration, creative problem solving and differentiation. Based on both experiential and service learning, our program emphasizes respect, empathy and care for others in a setting that is unique to Trinity and our Uptown location.
“Let’s go to school!” These words are exclaimed every Monday morning when the entire school community gathers in Jamie’s Courtyard for “Greet the Week”, a student-led assembly featuring songs, prayers, “green” tips from second grade and updates from our Wildcat teams and clubs. This gathering reflects the teaching and learning that define Trinity Episcopal School.
Trinity’s academic program brings all members of the School community to a richer intellectual, spiritual, social, physical and aesthetic awareness through an interdisciplinary and progressive approach to instruction. We encourage the development of such scholarly habits as curiosity, intellectual risk-taking and perseverance. As students make connections across subject areas, they expand their creativity, enhance their critical thinking and problem-solving skills, sharpen their communication and leadership dexterity and develop their independence.
We capitalize on opportunities both inside and outside of the classroom to tap the fullest potential of our students. Every student has a hand in shaping Trinity’s landscape, whether it is the potato garden planted and harvested by our kindergartners, the tulips cared for by our third graders or the pond excavated by our seventh-grade students. Our scholars rendezvous in the Renaissance, sample Shakespeare and perform magic with math. Favorite authors drop in, science projects fall from the sky and art and music fill the hallways. Trinity’s curriculum stimulates intellectual development in a way that inspires passion and sets the tone for lifelong learning. Read More →
