All of my children and my niece attend Trinity. The provide great one on one attention. My 8 year old has been going here since preschool could read before entering kindergarten and I truly believe that I have Trinity to thank for his advanced reading skills. Its a very close nit school. They do not have more then 12 kids per class for any grade so you couldn't ask for more 1 on 1 attention. The math teacher is phenomenal

My two children go to Trinity Christian School. They have a tremendous academic program. The teachers are amazing in how they love the students and take extra time to make sure each child is successful. The high school is the best I have ever known. The students are able to receive college credit for courses. I would recommend this school for anyone looking for a school.

My kids, my husband and myslef love this school. We were worried that they have combined grades (1st & 2nd together), but this hasn't been an issue. My son is in 2nd grade and there are only 15 total students in his class. He has plenty of 1 on 1 attention. My kindergartener is also thriving. They love going to school, their grades are wonderful. I love how they use positive reinforcement in the classrooms. Most of the kids there have been there for years - that should say a lot! Tuition isn't bad and you get a lot in return.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Indiana used the Indiana Statewide Testing for Educational Progress-Plus (ISTEP+) assessment to test students in grades 3 through 8 in English language arts and math, grades 4 and 6 in science, and in grades 5 and 7 in social studies. The ISTEP+ is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Indiana. The goal is for all students to score at the passing level on the test.

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.
