Philosophy/Belief Statement:

The Student is the focal point of Trinity High School. Three core values guide our commitment to this belief:
We believe that through education each student can become an effective thinking, experiencing and sensitive person. Trinity will provide educational opportunities to prepare the student for lifelong learning and continued intellectual, spiritual and physical growth.
We believe that through firm, consistent and caring guidance each student can develop the mental maturity and moral character to adopt patterns
of behavior that are consistent with Christian values and traditions. Trinity will provide a nurturing and supportive environment with appropriate limits conducive to the development and maintenance of self-discipline and responsible behavior.
We believe that by promoting the concept of responsibility each student can develop the confidence to think critically, make deliberate decisions and be held accountable for those decisions. Trinity will provide opportunities for each student to utilize those talents and abilities necessary for the improvement of self and the world in which we live.

School History:
