Welcome to Our Middle School!
Middle School is a time of profound growth and transition for children intellectually, physically, socially and emotionally.
Trinity’s Middle School program serves grades 6-8. Our program is a perfect bridge from the solid foundation our students receive in our lower school to being prepared for the best high schools in Charlotte and beyond. Our rigorous academic program makes connections across subject areas and uses a variety of instructional strategies. Our outstanding and experienced faculty work diligently to construct and deliver a curriculum that is developmentally appropriate and based on best practices. Our teachers develop learning activities that allow students to create their own knowledge, understanding and application in the real world versus memorizing rote facts.
As an Episcopal school, our school community is characterized by honor, grace, hope, respect for diversity, and service to others through our service learning program. Our Honor Code is the foundation for living and learning in the Trinity Episcopal School community and it is an important part of our education program and tradition. Our students participate in twice-weekly chapels where we observe the cherished rituals of the Episcopal Church including its tradition of reason, openness and acceptance.
We also offer a rich array of co-curricular classes as a complement to our core curriculum. Our students enjoy opportunities in art, music, physical education, life skills and faith studies. Each middle school student at Trinity is assigned to a small advisory group (called Koinonias) led by a middle school faculty member. The group meets several times a week, and the program is designed to build community amongst the members and tend to the socio-emotional needs of the students. In addition, our Athletics program offers opportunities for competition in seven team sports against area middle schools in Charlotte.
Our middle school students appreciate the leadership role that they hold in our K-8 school community. Our entire school community is engaged during our Community Chapel time on Friday and our Greet the Week time on Monday mornings. Our 8th graders cherish the time they spend with our kindergartners as Science Buddies. Moreover, the 8th grade experience culminates with a week long trip to Washington, D.C., focused on meeting with legislators and lobbyists to advocate for a social issue of their choice. The enthusiasm for Trinity does not end with Commencement as our alumni regularly return to campus to visit their favorite teacher and serve as Alumni Reading Buddies with our lower school students.
I invite you to explore our website and visit our campus to learn more about how we live into our mission of creating scholars, nurturing spirituality, and embracing diversity in Uptown Charlotte.
