The classical approach to education is a time-tested methodology. Approaching the grammar, logic and rhetoric of a variety subjects, at different developmental levels is the way our founding fathers were educated.
Trinity is developing a Christian worldview in over 540 students from Transitional Kindergarten to twelfth grade
The average SAT scores of our students are some of the highest in the country. Our graduation rate is 100% and 99% of our students have received academic merit scholarships and have attended four-year colleges.
Unlike many of our peer institutions with similar test scores, Trinity does not seek to be an exclusive college preparatory academy. As part of our Christian mission we feel it is our responsibility to offer an education that is inclusive to students at all socioeconomic levels and learning abilities. To that end, over 60% of our families receive tuition assistance.
There are 22 college credit courses offered for dual credit. From our 2017 graduating class, the average number of college credits was 29, while some students had over 40. This amounts to big savings when paying for college, as opportunities abound, allowing students to finish college in three years, or to double-major, or to play sports and take a lighter load during their season.
Many students have received scholarships for college. Our 129 graduates have been collectively awarded over 25 million in academic merit award, as well as scholarships for music/fine arts and athletics.
The capstone program for Trinity is the Senior Thesis. For the Rhetoric class of the senior year, students research and write a 20-30 page paper on a subject of their choosing that can be reasonably disagreed upon by Christians. They then edit it down to 5-7 pages, memorize it and present it to the community. It is truly impressive that our students accomplish this college level project. It qualifies as a dual credit class and therefore college credit can be earned. Videos of past presentations HERE
Our outstanding, dedicated faculty is comprised of passionate, devoted, Christian teachers who truly love teaching and who understand the goals of classical, Christian education. They come to us with numerous advanced degrees, a wealth of experience and are some of the most accomplished academics in Santa Clarita education. In addition to our core subjects, we have dedicated faculty who teach art, music, physical education and Latin as well as teachers for drama, yearbook, computer programming, student leadership and more.
Many have advanced degrees, including five with PhDs. The student-teacher ratio is 5:1.
The Trinity community is as broad as is the body of Christ. We are supported by wonderful administrators and knowledgeable and loving faculty. We are supported by volunteer parents in the Parent Teacher Fellowship group.
Our learning community includes those who are benefitting from Supplemental Services, which is a program that provides early education intervention and supports students with learning disabilities.
Imago Dei School: Our school within a school that has changed the entire culture at Trinity, integrated students with developmental disabilities into our daily activities.
Libertas Preparatory School: An independent study program that services homeschool students and allows them to participate in our vibrant community.
Trinity's Fine Arts program includes a variety of instrumental and vocal music classes, drama, film and visual arts. There is a rich offering of after school enrichment opportunities which include the fine arts as well, in addition to Chess and Robotics.
Our athletics program includes 51 teams in 11 sports, 2 CIF titles and 3 league titles. Students have been awarded athletic scholarships at various levels. All of this has occurred despite the fact that Trinity has only had a high school (and high school sports) for about a decade.
