My son was able to become grounded in his faith and upon entering high school was placed in all honors classes after having a great foundation set for him at Trinity Oaks.

We love Trinity Oaks! We love it for the strong academics, the biblical worldview, as well as the character development that our 3 children receive daily. The teachers and staff see our kids as a whole person, with unique gifts, abilities and even shortcomings, not just a grade in their grade book. If you are looking for a solid non-denominational Christian school, look no further. You have found it in TOCA!

Great school! We switched to TOCA in Junior High and wished we had done so sooner. Lots of great opportunities for Junior High students to grow in Jesus Christ through service both in and out of school. We love the opportunites to grow through student council, Huskies in Action, Advisory groups and Electives-great addtions to this year! My son is encouraged and welcomed on a daily basis. Great academics and a good switch for our family.

This is our 3rd year at TOCA, 3 kids now enrolled. We couldn't be happier. Strong academics...even stronger character development and spiritual emphasis. Great families and great leadership. Well worth the investment!

At Trinity Oaks, not only is my child getting a phenomenal education, but she is also receiving a strong biblical and spiritual foundation which is priceless. The teachers and staff are caring and loving to my child. They pray for her and with her. My daughter is taught the value of serving God and serving others. She is growing and thriving in the environment provided by Trinity Oaks. The Head of the School, Dr. Paul Wrobbel, is so engaged and invested in the children. He truly cares and loves the kids. He is a hands on leader. Sending my daughter to Trinity Oaks is probably one of the top five best life decisions I have ever made.

We moved our kids from the public school system 2 years ago to Trinity Oaks. In looking back it was the best decision for our two children. The school has provided a positive, Christ centered environment in which they can learn. As important, the curriculum is challenging and the teachers excellent in providing a great education. We highly recommend the school for any family seeking a high quality education in a Godly environment.

I have four children in this school ranging from first grade to 8th grade. We have attended for six years. I am continually impressed with materials the children learn. The school constantly tries to stay on top of helpful learning trends and ways for children to excel academically. The environment is "learning friendly" with amazing, patient teachers who practice consistent communication at all times with nurturing hearts. Our school runs on amazing parent volunteers. All of this said, the partnering parent/teacher community overall is like a family. The biggest blessing of it all is that we serve an awesome God and in this community His light shines. It shines through the teachers, staff and faculty and is contagious for the children and families. Not only do our children learn about discipling and strengthening their walk w/God, the parents grow through this process as well. I am honored to be in fellowship with such an amazing school.

We are very thankful to have been led to TOCA. We are amazed every day with the advanced learning and educational skills our young children possess. Trinity Oaks is a partner with our family in teaching our children about spiritual matters as well. Instead of fearing what kids will be taught, we are confident in the Biblically based worldview TOCA espouses. Our children are thriving in this challenging academic environment. Even more importantly, they are growing in their formative walk with the Lord. God willing, we plan on staying a part of the Trinity Oaks family.

This school is absolutely amazing. The teachers are devoted to the kids and view their jobs as a gift rather than duty. Our children have been in this school for 4 years now and we are absolutely pleased with the level of development academically, socially and spiritually.

This school is amazing! My family has been totally blessed by the character and academics at this school. The TOCA family has been wonderful and supportive throughout the years and my children have grown in such a God honoring way.

I am currently a student at TOCA, i have been attending since Kindergarden and this will be my 7th year attending. I love how warm and welcoming the whole environment of the school is! wether we are in bible class or Gro-Zone (chapel) we are always having a fantastic time! I am also involved in many extracurricular activities. I love this school and am very excited to start a new school year in a few months!

Our children completed the full program from kindergarten thru 8th grade and entered local high schools. We fell in love with the school and became very involved in their vital work. My oldest is at Wheaton College now and youngest still in high school. TOCA lived their mission statement, partnering with us and the church in developing their intellect and character. We were very very pleased and remain TOCA supporters.

Both of my children have been at TOCA for two years now. My husband and I could not be more pleased with the education and spiritual training our children have received. They have surprised us on numerous occasions with what they have learned and gained while at TOCA. In addition to being an excellent school academically, the teachers and staff are remarkably loving and caring. This is the exact kind of environment that I think any parent would want for their child.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
