“We are redefining academic rigor and building the foundation for K through 8 students by living the Episcopal tradition of spirituality, diversity and service in the heart of Uptown Charlotte.”
Greetings from the Admission Team!
A Trinitarian is curious, independent, creative, engaging, questioning, a problem solver and an idea generator. With small class sizes and two teachers in every lower school classroom, learning is child-centered and the environment is flexible. Children are challenged to construct their own knowledge in a safe space, where risks can be taken and mistakes can be made. This form of academic rigor thrives in well-managed classrooms where children are respected and trusted in an environment honoring choice around academic growth and development.
Inch by Inch,
row by row,
gonna make this garden grow,
all it takes is a rake and a hoe and a piece of fertile ground
Inch by Inch, row by row
Someone bless these seeds I sew,
Someone warm them from below
As the rain comes tumbling down
Inch by Inch is one of our favorite songs at Trinity, known and loved by every child kindergarten through 8th grade. The seeds of community are sewn in kindergarten where the foundation is rich with opportunities for building new friendships with peers and connecting through third grade Book Buddies and eighth grade Science Buddies. These vertical partnerships are intentional and meant to strengthen the relationships which bind our youngest children with our oldest. The 8th graders are held accountable for being role models as they nurture, guide, and lead through Christ-like example, much like the rake and the hoe are used to turn the earth and make it fertile for seeds to grow.
A strong sense of community is fertile ground for all the great learning that happens in our classrooms every day. We like to say “we have the longest hallways in Charlotte,” as our urban setting allows The School to establish collaborations with community partners who are walking distance from our campus. These unique partnerships have sustained our Service Learning program and pushed each one of us to look beyond ourselves and into the lives and hearts of those who are different than us. Growing and raising children within the context of service is at the core of who we are as an Episcopal school.
We are Trinity.
