Visit Our Beautiful Uptown Campus
Once you have submitted your online inquiry, we want you to come see the Trinity difference in action! Choosing a school is one of the most momentous decisions that parents ever make for their children and photos or videos can only offer a glimpse of the amazing educational experience delivered to students on a daily basis.
We invite you to join us for an Admission Open House, Campus Tour OR for a Super Tour.
NOTE: The Open House combined with the Campus Tour is similar in presentation and structure to the Super Tour. The Super Tour is a hybrid model condensed into 90 minutes. You do not need to sign up for all three options.
Attend our Open House to learn more about Trinity’s progressive student-centered curriculum, our inclusive approach to community life, service learning and more from our School Leadership Team.

Applicant parents must complete and submit your family’s income tax forms, including all schedules, W-2 forms, 1099 forms, form 4506, as well as a copy of the Parents’ Financial Statement (PFS) to the Student Service of Financial Aid by the deadline in March 2019.

The students in the wait pool are not ranked and as space becomes available, the entire pool will be considered.
