Financial Support

Trinity Episcopal School is dedicated to ensuring each child is afforded a Trinity education. In the 2023-24 school year, we awarded $2.1 million in financial support to 26% of our students.

To create a seamless and confidential financial support process, we use the Clarity financial support platform. Financial support applications are completely online and take about 20 minutes to complete. With your permission, Clarity will obtain tax documents on your behalf, eliminating the need to upload physical documents. This mobile-friendly application will also save your progress giving you the flexibility to return at a later time.

Trinity cannot review any applications until all necessary documents are submitted through Clarity. Financial awards are based on demonstrated need as assessed by Clarity. The application for financial support has no bearing on admission.

The financial support application deadline for returning families is Friday, December 1, 2023. 

The financial support application deadline for prospective families is Thursday, February 1, 2024.

Cognitive Assessment

Cognitive assessments are one of the tools we use to ensure your child’s academic success at Trinity. These are completed by a licensed, outside psychologist. 

  • Grades K-1 applicants take the WPPSI-IV (Wechsler Preschool & Primary Scale of Intelligence)
  • Grades 2-4 applicants take the WISC-V (Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children)
  • Grades 5-8 applicants take the ISEE (Independent School Entrance Exam)

Applicant Visit

Kindergarten observations and “Wildcat for a Day” visits (Grades 1-8) are ways we assess your child’s preparedness. This provides us with an opportunity to get to know your child and for your child to get to know Trinity. All applicants will receive an invitation to choose a date for their visit.

“Wildcat for a Day” visits for Grades 1-8 will be scheduled later in the season.

Follow-Up Conference

At the completion of the admission process families will meet with the admission team to discuss your child’s visit and answer any follow-up questions.


Admission notifications will be sent to Kindergarten applicants on Friday, February 23, 2024 at 4 pm. 

Applicants in Grades 1-8 will be notified on Thursday, March 28, 2024 at 4 pm.
