Developing the Whole Child
Trinity Episcopal School provides a wide range of opportunities for students to step outside the box and discover their skills and talents. Students can participate in theater productions, art shows, choral groups, hand-bell choirs, community service activities, book fairs, the reading buddy program, student council, special Chapels, our After-School Enrichment Program and much more. Middle School students are afforded the option of participating in team sports.
Service is a profound and integral part of the learning experience at Trinity. Service learning combines classroom instruction with meaningful community service. This form of learning emphasizes critical thinking and personal reflection while encouraging a heightened sense of community, civic engagement, and personal responsibility. Service Learning allows students to learn and develop through active participation in thoughtful organized service projects benefiting the community while fostering communal responsibility and enhancing the academic curriculum of the students. While our goal is to create successful scholars, it is equally important to prepare our students to be caring, knowledgeable, upstanding citizens.
The Performing and Visual Arts
The fine arts are considered an integral part of the curriculum, and they serve as a vehicle for self-expression and the development of the whole child. Trinity's faculty strives to provide the opportunity for our students to see, think, wonder, and find their voice through the development of individual interests and talents. Students have classes in art and music as part of their regular curriculum. Fourth and Eighth Grade classes perform major musical productions each school year. Fifth Graders are introduced to chimes, and Middle Schoolers are introduced to handbells. In Fifth and Sixth Grades, students rotate through quarter classes in art, drama, and music. In Seventh and Eighth Grades, students choose from a large variety of fine arts electives including ceramics, watercolor, painting, printmaking, drama, handbells, voice, stained-glass, computer graphics, photography, and choir.
