Description of Organization

As a ministry of Trinity Presbyterian Church, Trinity Christian School prepares students academically, equips them to view the world and interact with it from a biblical perspective, and develops in them a sincere desire to serve God and others.

Trinity Christian School is committed to providing an academically excellent, Christ-centered education to all of our students.

The curriculum is college-preparatory in nature, with many opportunities for students to take Honors or Advanced Placement classes in the Upper School.
