Academic focus and philosophy

Educational philosophy and approach to learning We are a classical Christ-centered school. A classical education provides a student with tools for learning at developmentally appropriate stages called the trivium: grammar, logic, and rhetoric. Our goal is that each graduate would be a maturing Christian who is a life-long learner, a productive citizen, and one who maintains a healthy lifestyle.

Social emotional skills development Trinity’s preschool offers a developmentally appropriate, integrated curriculum that addresses the child’s whole development spiritually, socially, emotionally, physically, and intellectually. While academics are important, we believe the social/emotional and spiritual development of three and four year old children is critical for becoming productive members of society.

Parent involvement details One of our foundational principles at Trinity Christian School is the fact that God has entrusted parents to be the primary educators of their children. As a school, we see our role as that of a helpmate to parents in their divinely-appointed job. Some of the mechanisms for engaging parents are: weekly newsletters, conferences, emails, coffee hours, and grade level meetings.
