Eighth graders just completed their Trimester 2 projects for Trinity's capstone course, Innov8. Check out a couple of projects from earlier in the year!
Each Child, Each Day.
Trinity Episcopal School of Austin is an independent, nonprofit, PK-8, co-ed, day school in southwest Austin, Texas. Trinity delivers a student-centered, evidence-based curriculum in a highly supportive and challenging environment. Teachers, coaches, and a team of support staff work together to meet students where they are and partner with parents to build a comprehensive, holistic, and data-driven plan for each child's growth.
We are not funded by any governement or diocese, which allows us to control our curriculum independently. We adhere to the accreditation requirements for the Independent Schools Association of the Southwest and the Southwestern Association of Episcopal Schools.
We invest every dollar back into our programs, people, and spaces. In fact, tuition alone does not cover the cost of exceptional Trinity education. We depend on philanthropy to close the tuition gap and to support families that rely on financial assistance.
We believe the PK–8 model offers the best balance for young children and adolescents. It gives lower schoolers a nurturing learning environment and challenges middle schoolers to grow as leaders and role models.
We think of ourselves as ahead of the curve, but not experimental. Our curricula are based on the latest research and proven best practices to optimize learning and development for young children and adolescents.
As an Episcopal school, we are a Christian organization that welcomes and seeks to understand people of all faiths and backgrounds. Examples include daily Chapel, recognizing both Christian and non-Christian holidays, and service learning.
Where Kids Can Question, Lead, Love, and Thrive
What is Trinity all about? It really boils down to fostering a love of learning and love for one's community. We want our students to be curious, confident leaders who are equipped and inspired to find their voice, make it heard, and have a positive impact on their world.
We will nurture each child academically, physically, socially, emotionally and spiritually. We will honor each child's spirit for learning and life, ever mindful that we are all children of God.
By the Numbers
Students per Teacher
Our teachers are supported by a team of specialists and other staff, keeping our student-teacher ratio extremely low.
We value diversity in all its forms! That includes ethnicity, culture, religion, socio-economic status, and more.
Avg. Class Size
Our support staff keeps our student-teacher ratio low at 7:1 and ensures we know each child and meet them where they are.
Hours of Differentiation
We meet students where they are with differentiated instruction during normal class time as well as at least two additional hours a week.
Three Divisions, One Mission
Trinity's PK-8 model strikes a great balance! It provides younger students with a nurturing environment while also challenging older kids to step up as leaders and role models. This eases social pressures and bolsters empathy, friendship, leadership, and a sense of belonging.
Blue House Preschool
Our Preschool division is an integral part of the Trinity community! However, the admission process is separate due to substantial changes in development for all young children.
Trinity teachers truly know each of their students, and maintain those relationships as students get older. This gives kids a sense of belonging and improves faculty-to-faculty collaboration across grade-levels.
With more than 20 electives and dozens of extracurricular options, Middle School students have lots of opportunities to explore different interests and find their voice.
A beautiful and safe place to learn.
Located five miles from downtown Austin in a quiet alcove of West Lake Hills, our 24-acre campus is private and secure. And thanks to our proximity to MoPac Expressway and 360 Loop, we're easily accessible from anywhere in the city.

After nine years, our summer program has changed its name! It's a reflection of how the program has evolved to meet the needs of our community and the city of Austin more broadly.

by Caitlin Sweetlamb, Director of Service Learning
Service learning is a key part of our identity as an Episcopal school. By embracing the notion of interdependence, we can dissolve the boundary we put up between "self" and "other" and come together to build a better world!
