Trinity first-grade students study the seven continents and various countries around the world. They learn about different cultures and customs, gaining an appreciation for all God's children.
First graders have always enjoyed being "Appleseeds" and learning about pumpkins and this year is no different. First graders brought their own apples this year and they used their five senses to observe their difference and of course, their taste!
Trinity's National Honor Society (NHS) students worked in conjunction with Love SCV to prepare 55 Thanksgiving meal kits for local SCV families in need. Each NHS student gathered food from a list provided by Love SCV, put together a box or a bag with all their meal kit items, wrote an encouraging note, and decorated their box for distribution to families in Newhall and Canyon Country.
The Newhall Church of the Nazarene has graciously granted us exclusive use of their gym for our upcoming sports seasons. Our Trinity indoor athletes now have a wonderful facility to practice and play their games. Early in the process of securing the facility, the leadership at NewNaz expressed not only their desire for us to partner with them in the use of their beautiful gym but said, “Please make it your home.”
Trinity may have some future civil engineers in the midst of its Kindergarten class.

On Friday, September 11th, Trinity's chapter of the Young Americans for Freedom (YAF) assembled to honor and remember, and Never Forget, that fateful day in 2001. The day before, the small group of students had placed 2,981 flags in the grass to memorialize the lives lost. The flags set the stage for a patriotic and powerful ceremony.
With all the uncertainty of COVID-19, we weren’t sure about Summer Camp 2020, but God was sure. He always is. We are very excited to be able to go forward with our program, even if it isn’t all that we had planned. We know it is exactly as God intended it to be. And we are having a great time!
At Trinity, we believe in an all-encompassing education. Students are academics, athletes, artists, and more. With the recent publication of the CIF-SS 2019-2020 Academic Award Winners, we see an example of our all-encompassing education on display. Not only have some of our athletic teams seen successful seasons in their athletic endeavors, but this demonstrates their attention to their academic education as well.
Trinity has responded to the COVID-19 crisis with an enthusiastic, thoughtful, creative approach to learning. Our campus may be closed for now, but our mission to produce young men and women of virtue, wisdom, purpose and courage remains alive and vibrant throughout this period. Our method of educating children in the Christian faith and classical tradition is shifting from face-to-face to virtual, and we see both challenges and opportunities with this shift. However, it does not alter in any way our commitment to the health, well-being, and growth of every student in our community.
