Our primary responsibility is to lead the students to the realization that Christ alone brings fulfillment. Thus, Holy Trinity brings to each child a knowledge of Christ and His teachings. Every subject is influenced by the students? faith and its precepts. Their personal conduct, their relationships with others, their attitudes, their values, and their goals are interwoven with their Christian beliefs.
At Holy Trinity, the staff is committed to instructional programs that acknowledge the dignity and uniqueness of each individual. We seek to provide a systematic growth of knowledge and skills to prepare wholesome, productive members of society. In a Christian environment, Holy Trinity utilizes both traditional and innovative teaching methods, so that the students receive the best of each. While basics are stressed, there is ample opportunity for the “new” and “untried.” Individual differences are identified and met to enable each child to uphold a positive self-image and to work to his or her potential.
Holy Trinity directs its students to a God-centered life so that they can live the Christian life in a modern society.
