Beyond the Classroom
The Trinity Episcopal School education is best characterized by a love of learning both inside the classroom and out. The classroom can be a wonderful and nurturing place, but we work to prepare students for the world well beyond Trinity.
We love our beautiful campus, but there’s a big, wide world to explore! We’re always looking for learning opportunities outside the classroom, and our yearly class trips challenge students to discover new environments, new people and themselves. These excursions are offered beginning in 4th grade, and each adventure is another way to nurture our kids academically, physically, emotionally and spiritually.
The Natural Classroom
Technology can empower students and educators, but also can distance children from traditional land-based learning and experiences. Students have less opportunity to explore the natural environment and experience all it has to offer. Outdoor classrooms promote many types of scientific exploration and observations of real world phenomena, which help engage the scientific mind.
The Natural Classroom was funded by A Night to Shine, Trinity's annual spring gala. The site for the classroom is beside Trinity's outdoor chapel and will feature an outdoor garden, compost center, rainwater collection system, shaded outdoor classroom, and related science equipment.
