A little more than a decade ago, a group of Charlotte Episcopal clergy and parishioners planted a seed of educational excellence to be nurtured in spiritually rich soil. Today, it is growing at Trinity Episcopal School. Thanks to the tireless efforts of hundreds of volunteers in our community, Trinity is igniting the minds, bodies, spirits and senses of our children and families.
Trinity opened its school doors in Charlotte’s Center City in August of 2000, and in June 2005 Trinity Episcopal School received its accreditation from the Southern Association of Independent Schools and the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. The School achieved re-accreditation in the spring of 2010.
Trinity Episcopal School is committed to the breadth of the Episcopal tradition in both its unity and diversity.
- A student of Trinity Episcopal School is challenged to academic excellence while honored as an individual with unique potential.
- As faculty and families together influence young lives, students themselves will be affirmed as ambassadors of grace, citizens who live and teach an ethic of service and respect for others.
- A student of Trinity Episcopal School is trained in the example of Christ and toward a stewardship of healthy body, lively soul and discerning mind.
