Learning at Trinity

Inquisitive Minds             

Children are natural discoverers. They eagerly seek and absorb experience, restlessly questioning "Why?" and "How?"  Excellent teaching serves their curiosity with a well-crafted balance of challenge and support.

Trinity's moderate class sizes, rich and engaging learning environments, and carefully designed curriculum offer each child an appropriate fit, a "just right" proportion of caring attention and room to grow and further their natural curiosity, day by day.

Teachers regularly share data and observations in thoughtful deliberation of each student's needs. These discussions, together with parents' insights, inform each teacher's daily practice and ensure that each child's development is organic, efficient, and rich, year after year. It is our aspiration, and our commitment, to graduate students with the best of academic foundations and with an ever-deepened desire for learning.The right fit requires thorough knowledge of each individual as a learner.

Trinity's educators go to great lengths to assess and understand each child's strengths and needs, learning style, talents, and interests and to apply these measures in planning for optimal growth. 

The faculty embraces a "growth mindset" – a willingness to work hard, take risks, learn from mistakes, and constantly seek improvement.

Development of the whole Child

Our academic programs across Lower School and Middle School are unparalleled as they teach students to live a life in which they make connections, honor the complexity of life, strive for deep understanding, and live within a diverse community of learners. The primary philosophy focuses on the development of the whole child.
