Thank you for considering Trinity Academy for your international educational experience. We welcome international students and value all that you have to offer our community.

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

Trinity Academy’s International Scholars Program has a robust history of excellence.  Alumni are strategically located all over the globe where they are impacting the world in universities and professional careers.  The advantages of a Trinity Academy education and the invaluable and varied experiences of living within the Trinity community have prepared our international scholars to Transform Tomorrow.

Our International Scholars benefit greatly from our Innovative Classical Learning. Daily, they use English to participate in Socratic dialogue used in the Humanities classes. They are encouraged to express their ideas in verbal and written form. Paired with our strong math and science programs, our graduates are prepared to excel in college and beyond. Additionally, all International Scholars are required to participate on an athletic team and take a Fine Arts class each year. These two areas provide invaluable learning experiences.

The mission of Trinity Academy is to equip students to live with wisdom, excellence, and purpose in the modern world by offering them an education grounded in the Christian faith and classical tradition. At Trinity we don’t tell our students what to think, we teach them how to think.  Trinity is also a small and strong community.  With around 30 students per grade level and an average class size of 14 students, our community is built on strong relationships, both between students and with faculty members. We have purposefully structured our program so that our international student enrollment will always be less than 10% of the upper school population.

Our International Scholars Residence is a vital component of our program.  Our international scholars live in a beautiful 6,700 square foot home located on 4 picturesque acres which adjoins the Trinity Academy campus.  The program directors live in the residence with the international students and are uniquely equipped to love and nurture them as they would their own children.
