At Trinity, our goal is to educate the whole person. This means we are filling the mind, but also shaping the hearts and souls of students. We want them to love what is good, true, and beautiful. We want them to develop wisdom, virtue, purpose and courage, as we say in our mission statement. Some of these things are developed and fostered in the classroom, some in chapel, some through relationships, some on the court or field, and some at camp.
