Central to Our Mission

Nurturing the Whole Child

We are dedicated to developing the whole child — academically, physically, emotionally and spiritually. One of our core values is 'Christian Foundation.' Our school is built on it! It goes well beyond Chapel or religion classes. We weave it throughout school life. We're proudly Episcopalian. That means we are an inclusive and engaged community that celebrates and values all students and their families. Whether through daily Chapel, intentional service-learning opportunities, or celebrating and exploring different faith traditions throughout the year, our students gain understanding and grow stronger in their own faith.

Chapel Every Day

Growing Spiritually, Strengthening Community

Chapel is an important part of our shared life at Trinity, gathering as a community each morning to reflect on what it means to be children of God, be good people, act in service to others, and live out our individual faith traditions. We come together to support one another, strengthen our community, and learn about and reflect on how we can become the people God calls us to be. We pray for the needs of the community, give thanks for our blessings, grieve and mourn losses, and celebrate successes and birthdays. Current families can watch Chapel live (the link is in the parent portal). Our chaplain (The Rev. Kenneth Malcolm) and assistant chaplain (Craig Cannon) lead daily worship, teach religion classes, offer pastoral care, and oversee community outreach and service learning.

On our main campus we host two Chapel services each morning, one for Lower School students in grades K‑4, and one for Middle School students in grades 5‑8. We also host a preschool chapel twice a week. Lower and Middle Schools combine for a K‑8 Chapel about once a month, and we host special services each year (Día de los Muertos, Maundy Thursday and Flowering of the Cross, to name a few). We also enjoy a two-week celebration of Christmas each year, with our Lower School Christmas Pageant and Middle School presentation of Lessons & Carols.


 

Community Service

Putting Faith into Action

Through service to others, our students explore social justice issues and their role in the local and global community. They volunteer with our local food bank, team up with Mobile Loaves & Fishes to prepare and deliver meals, mentor underserved children and work hand-in-hand with urban and rural communities, schools, and orphanages during service-learning trips in the summer.

Building Partnerships with Other Faiths

Creating an Inclusive Community

We want our students to hear a variety of voices and become thoughtful, empathetic leaders in the world beyond Trinity. The Religious Leaders Panel, one of our initiatives for Diversity & Inclusion, is an opportunity for students and families to learn about different faiths and explore the various ways we can work together. We host leaders from other faith traditions — like Judaism and Buddhism — to have a thoughtful conversation about our similarities and our differences.
