Step 1 - Inquire & Visit Campus

Step 2 - Submit Application

We welcome admission applications at any time of the year. For first round consideration, all admission applications and application fees should be submitted to our Admission Office before January 15, 2020.


Step 3 - Apply for Financial Aid

All families of students (K-8) are eligible to apply for our need-based financial assistance program. The application for financial aid has no bearing on admission to Trinity Episcopal School. In no case will a child be denied admission because of implied, inferred or demonstrated financial need. Click here for more information.


Step 4 - Schedule Testing

As part of the admission process, applicants take a standardized assessment. In all cases, these tests need to be scheduled in advance.

Wait Pool Information
After a grade-level is filled, Trinity will maintain a wait pool so that admission decisions can result in accepting the best-qualified applicants and maintaining a balanced class and/or student body. The students in the wait pool are not ranked and as space becomes available, the entire pool will be considered.
