Trinity Episcopal School was founded through the generosity of people. Trinity’s founders had a dream of building an Episcopal School for Charlotte, and because many people have devoted gracious amounts of time and financial resources over the past 15 years, Trinity exists today as a leader in education.
Trinity’s mission is distinct. And it is expensive.
Like most independent schools, Trinity sets tuition at less than full cost. On average, tuition, fees and other programs cover only about 88% of the cost of educating students at Trinity. This is why we need endowments, revenue from auxiliary programs – like Wildcat Summer camp – and ongoing fundraising. Parents, grandparents, alumni and friends of the School give their time, talent and finances each year in order to sustain the mission and core values which are central to the program we deliver to our students.
Giving in independent schools is another way to build community. Each family, faculty and staff member is here at Trinity because we chose to be here. We have decided to be a part of this place and collectively, each of us makes our community whole. The time we give to the school is important and so are our financial gifts. Every gift, no matter the size, is a sign of your investment in this special school.
