Matt’s heart for Trinity:
Prior to our children reaching school age, my wife and I struggled with how we would balance our desire for faith to be a part of our children’s education and to ensure that they received both a rigorous and unsheltered education. When we encountered Trinity our struggle was resolved. In Trinity, we found a place that not only achieves excellence in academics but also trains its pupils to think, speak, write and act independently – discovering and owning, for themselves, the ideas that will shape their lives. The fact that Trinity accomplishes all of this in a Christ-centered community makes the Trinity education ideal – and one that my wife and I believe will uniquely prepare our children for the spiritual, social and professional opportunities that await them.
