Samantha’s heart for Trinity: Trinity Academy is a unique place. Upon evaluating many area schools, I have found Trinity to be a great fit for our family. I was first attracted to the mission of teaching students “how to think rather than what to think” and the idea that children need to develop a faith that is “their own” not what someone has told them it should be. Interestingly enough, these two things are often absent in the Christian education arena. We were drawn to consider Trinity because of an upper school student who babysat for us. We were impressed by the way she thought, communicated and carried herself. Most of all we noticed that she had embraced her faith and that it was her own. We continued to observe her as she went on to college, graduate school, and a career. We felt that she was well prepared academically and spiritually and that she faced each level confidently and successfully. So it was truly the end product of the Trinity Academy education that convinced us to become a part of the Trinity community.
