Trinity Episcopal School

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

Lower School

The Lower School academic program is thorough, rigorous, and rooted in best practice. Quantitative reasoning, the scientific approach, and literacy skills are fostered across the curriculum. Underlying all objectives is the notion that active learning best suits the needs of our students.

Students participate in exploring information, making meaning, solving problems, understanding arithmetic, increasing comprehension, and crafting papers through practices that promote active engagement.

Trinity teachers are masters of their craft and know their students well.  They are thoughtful and knowledgeable professionals who care deeply about both content and process.  They seek to challenge, inspire, encourage, and stretch their students.  They look for the "teachable moments" and capitalize on the opportunity to make deep connections and teach for understanding. 

Lower School offers a hub of supportive community. A sense of belonging helps students master the social and emotional skills essential to their satisfying engagement in the world.  A classroom assistant for each classroom allows highly trained teachers to create a true community of learners, one that instills lessons in empathy and compassion along with intellectual inquiry.

Welcome from our Head of School

"A Trinity education is best characterized by a love of learning both inside the classroom and out." - Marie Kidd, Head of School
