Trinity Episcopal School

An independent K-8 Episcopal day school five miles from the heart of Austin

Beginning with a Dream and a Plan

Trinity Episcopal School began as the dream of longtime Austin educator Jane Hill and a small group of parents. They were looking for a rigorous and innovative Episcopal academic program offered in a diverse and highly nurturing environment. 

This small group of parents became the Founding Board, whose first order of business was the formation of a Mission Statement and a set of Core Values - philosophies that would guide the board and staff's decisions from the blueprint stage to reality and beyond on a daily basis.

In August 1999 Trinity Episcopal School opened with 13 pioneer first graders in a converted fraternity house near the University of Texas, quickly dubbed "The Blue House." Our second year opened with 103 students in borrowed space at Riverbend Church while the initial construction phase of the Westlake Hills campus was completed.  We held chapel and other schoolwide gatherings outdoors. Staff offices were in a trailer on-site. We moved into our first academic building, Blue House Hall, in the weeks before Christmas 2000.
August 2002, we opened school with close to 200 students in grades kindergarten through fifth. Trinity's Board of Trustees voted in Spring 2002 to establish a middle school with 6th grade opening in the 2003-2004 academic year. The Trinity Center for Arts & Athletics was dedicated in 2004 and was the site of our first Commencement Service as we proudly graduated Trinity's Class of 2006. The Trinity Tomorrow Campaign helped us finish our campus plans with the construction of a new 6-8 grade building, Legacy Hall, a Dining Hall and the jewel of our campus, our chapel: Jane Hill Hall.
Today, Trinity is a K-8 school with 531 students. Our school has flourished quickly, but with a solid foundation and a deep commitment to the mission and core values that guide us each day.
