Tom’s Heart for Trinity

Trinity is unique and has played a big part in the life of our family. We carefully evaluated area schools when choosing Trinity for lower school and again for upper school. Trinity has been a wonderful fit for our family. My wife and I were first attracted to the mission of teaching students “how to think rather than telling them what to think” and the idea that children need to have a faith that is “their own,” rather than a superficial lifestyle. Unfortunately, these two things are often absent in the Christian education arena. We were drawn to consider Trinity because of our baby sitter, who was a Trinity student. 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. It was really seeing the end product of the Trinity Academy education that led us to become a part of the Trinity community.
