Our High School academics embrace the cross-training of the mind brought forth through the balanced study of Literature, Mathematics, History, Science, Religion, Classics, and Languages.
Students are asked to Read, Write, and Converse in all areas of study, and are taught to think independently. Trinity Academy offers Advanced Placement courses to students who are ready for college level work.
Our Program of Studies (TAHS Program of Studies.2016-17) is specifically designed to give each student the proper number of credits (TAHS Grad Requirements) for entrance into college, while offering the most advanced students a deepening in subject matter through our Advanced Placement opportunities. Students also memorize literature for recitation at all levels of the High School, and enjoy presenting these recitations as Assemblies and Presentation Days.
Our graduates leave Trinity Academy as critical thinkers, competent writers, and strong speakers. They have a self-confidence which is outward looking, and they are ready for higher academics at the college level and beyond.
In particular, our High School students are challenged to analyze complex literary works, through the study of authors such as George Eliot, Charles Dickens, and Dostoevsky. They progress to the A.P. level in Literature, Mathematics, Science, and Foreign Language, and excel in their knowledge of the Faith.
The foundations of Western Civilization and American heritage are stressed. A deepening appreciation for the spiritual and moral teachings of the Church also evolves throughout the higher grades, including precise teaching of the Moral Theology of the Church as presented in the Catechism, and the Social Justice principles of the Church from the encyclicals of the popes. Students are also exposed to a wealth of reading in classic literature. All incoming students are required to take a comprehensive course in Computer Applications, which familiarizes them with the professional applications of the Microsoft Office Suite, and the Google platforms.
Our learning environment includes a Lower School (grades K4-5), Middle School (grades 6-8), and a High School (grades 9-12). We encourage a community spirit among grade levels. Our High School students act as mentors to our Winnie the Pooh After School Study Program and love to serve the Sentinel Grill hot lunch program to our youngest students weekly.
At Trinity Academy, we believe that Academics begin with personal formation. Our faculty provide the example of kindness, honesty, and intellectual curiosity to our students, who exude joy in learning every day.
