Matt’s Heart for Trinity

Laura and I truly believe that Trinity is a special place – an essential educational alternative for families seeking an academically demanding curriculum framed in the Christian tradition.  Our three kids have benefited incredibly from Trinity’s classical academic rigor, the intentional discipleship from the faculty, and the instillment of a Christian worldview.  This is what we anticipated and expected when we enrolled here, and we have not been disappointed.  What we didn’t expect, but are so thankful for, are the incredibly dear friends that Laura and I have found in the Trinity family.  We thank God for Trinity, and I am honored to serve the school as a member of the Board of Directors.
