Trinity Episcopal School is committed to the breadth of the Episcopal tradition in both its unity and diversity. We strive to create a welcoming environment to not only students and parents but to our faculty and staff.

A normal week at Trinity will begin with an exciting Monday morning at Greet the Week, and the week will end with an inspiring and uplifting community chapel on Friday.  Between these days, there are many opportunities to engage with students outside of the classroom during our service learning, enrichments, tutoring, and coaching an athletic team.
