We understand that decisions about where and how to educate your child are among the most important you will make as a parent. Trinity Classical Christian School is committed to the principle that education is a partnership with parents. We offer a Christian education with a classical approach designed to create passionate learners who pursue truth, beauty, and goodness in all endeavors. Our curriculum acknowledges Christ ruling over all things and is at the core of what we teach. Our dedicated teachers love their subjects and their students and are intentional about educating the whole person made in the image of God. We invite you to get to know more about us! We will be happy to answer questions, provide further reading material, or set up a meeting for you and your child. In the meantime, be sure to read more on our website about our community and the unique advantages of classical Christian education. We look forward to sharing more with you and helping you navigate the admissions process.
Is your family committed to Christ?
Our families value our commitment to Christ in all that we do. Our school motto, Soli Deo Gloria, means “To the glory of God alone.” Children memorize entire chapters of Scripture regularly and are taught to live according to them. We often hear the story of parents who are pulled aside by their children’s Sunday school teachers and asked how these children know so much. We pray and work so they will translate what they learn here into a life of service to Christ. If you share these values, you probably will fit well at Trinity.
Are you committed to well-behaved children?
Our standards within the school are loving and structured. We believe all children are created in the image of God and we deeply respect the uniqueness of their personalities. All children are prone to misbehavior on occasion, so we don’t expect your kids to be perfect (or even close). We do expect parents to support our teachers and administration as we lovingly but firmly discipline children who are acting out. If you value a partnership with a school that will uphold high standards, you will do well at Trinity.
Do you value academics and a Christian work ethic?
We desire our school to be recognized in the community for the academic standards we uphold. This comes with a standard of work that requires a little more of both parents and students. Parents are often called upon to be actively involved with their young children as they do homework. Many parents find that by the 4th or 5th grade, the Latin, history, and other subjects exceed their ability to help. However, parents still remain actively involved to ensure they are diligently working to prevent frustration from poor study habits. While some families may find it difficult to trade off some recreational or entertainment time to focus on academics, our graduates commonly thank us for their training. Some misunderstand our work ethic. We do not desire or expect children to work excessively. Certainly, children need time to play. For this reason, we restrict the amount of homework allowed each week. For those who wonder why we have higher expectations: many families have found that their children thrive in our environment because they enjoy being challenged. What expectations characterize your family? If you are serious about finding an educational partner with you in preparing your child for life, we invite you to visit and see what’s possible.
Do you value a broad-based education or do you see education as a relatively generic commodity, with slight distinctions?
Some families want a mainstream education like they had. If you were satisfied with your education (assuming you were educated in a mainstream public or private school) and don’t see any reason to want more, then you probably won’t find our form of education appealing. From our uniforms to our study of the great books to our emphasis on writing, we are different from most schools. Often, the people who most identify with classical Christian education are those who went to school in the eastern or southern United States, Europe, or any of the British or French commonwealths. A vestige of classical education remains in most of these areas, particularly in the preparatory schools. Because classical Christian education takes time to appreciate, those with a background in traditional Western education more quickly identify with the advantages gained in what has been called a “Western liberal arts” education. If you are attracted to education that reaches beyond training to enrich the minds and the spirits of students as they learn to love learning, then you should consider our school.
Does your family love learning and books?
The most consistent success factor for children at Trinity Classical Christian School is the learning environment at home. Families who read and love to learn send children to our school because they want the world of language, books, history, science, and math to be an integrated whole. They want their children to use their love of knowledge to explore and seek Truth. Families that do not have many books in their home and that rarely visit a library or bookstore probably will not find our value compelling. Having said this, many families discover the world of literature and information through their children’s experience at our school. If you would like to develop a love of books, knowledge, and learning in your home, Trinity can provide a great start.
Feel free to contact us if you have your own questions. We would love to hear from you.
A child must have reached the age of five years by the first day of school in the year in which he would be entering Kindergarten; six years of age by the first day of first grade. If a child has successfully completed the previous school year and his schoolwork and behavior compare favorably to Trinity's standards, he will be placed in the grade for which he is applying. However, if there is evidence that the child may not be adequately prepared for the next sequential grade level, he may be required to repeat the previous grade. The student should understand that his parents have delegated their authority to the school during the school day. Therefore, the child is subject to the instruction and discipline of the teacher and the Head of School in their prescribed roles. Trinity Classical Christian School does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, or national or ethnic origin in the administration of its admissions, scholarships, hiring, or other school-directed policies.
Transfer students are required to provide transcripts and standardized testing results from their previous school sometime after they have applied, but before the family interview. If a child has demonstrated academic strength in his or her previous school year and his or her schoolwork and behavior compares favorably to Trinity Classical Christian School’s standards, he will be placed in the grade for which he is applying. Student acceptance will be based upon a student interview, parent interview, and the student’s academic ability. Trinity Classical Christian School does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, or national or ethnic origin in the administration of its admissions, scholarships, hiring, or other school-directed policies.
Parents should have a clear understanding of the biblical philosophy and purpose of Trinity Classical Christian School. This understanding includes a willingness to have their child exposed to the clear teaching of the school’s Statement of Faith in various and frequent ways within the school’s program. Parents should have a clear understanding of our unique classical educational approach. Parents should carefully read the informational materials about the school. We also strongly encourage each parent to read the book by Douglas Wilson, “Recovering the Lost Tools of Learning,” as one of the best texts for explaining the kind of program we offer at Trinity Classical Christian School. Parents are required to cooperate with all the written policies of Trinity Classical Christian School. This is especially important in the area of discipline and schoolwork standards, as well as active communication with the respective teachers and administration. In addition, parents are strongly encouraged to become active volunteers in other areas of the school. Please contact us at email@example.com or submit an inquiry on our contact page.
None of these are “litmus tests.” Rather, we consider all factors when admitting a new student. Attending Trinity Classical Christian School is a privilege. We are not an "alternative" school. Students and families are enrolled at the direction of the Administration and Board. We reserve the right to refuse admission or continued enrollment to anyone.
