An amazing school with a wonderful principal, dedicated teaching staff and the much loved, Father John. This fine school offers everything from fantastic AP programs to a superior theater. The students are well rounded and are well prepared for their colleges and the list is truly impressive! We thank you for the opportunities you have provided for our child and for all the students.

Just a public school with sloppy uniforms. No manners at all from all people that go to that school. Not a place for your children. Rude people everywhere. Barely any religion goes on. What a horrible "catholic" school.

I personally found my experience at HTHS to be extremely positive. Besides enjoying an extremely structured environment, the staff is very involved. I'm not overly religious but thoroughly enjoyed the Catholic undertones the school adheres by. One of my fondest memories of HTHS, is the school spirit- unlike any other school on the island. I graduated with 18 college credits and did extremely well in college and graduate school. In fact, my economics class had such a profound impact on me, that i decided to pursue my MBA with a concentration in finance. Fast forward a few years later and i own a successful business (for the past 6 years). I would highly recommend this school to prospective students!

Our 19 year old daughter graduated with honors from Holy Trinity. Our school district refused to put her in AP classes. This school taught her that she is no different then anyone else. She was very shy and self conscious in public school. At Holy Trinity she blossomed into a Beautiful vibrant young women. My 16 year old is a junior this year and she is very much into athletics. This school has helped her realize her academic responsibilities and increased her school and team spirit. GO TITANS! We love this school and the Staff is always helping us as parents and the students.. Give the school a chance, you will be impressed.

Holy Trinity High School is more than a high school. As a senior, I can fully disclose that this single place makes high school and education the two most important and essential aspects of a teens life. Ask anyone. Holy Trinity is the foundation of creativity whether it be artistically, athletically, academically, or religiously.I can best compare Holy Trinity to New York City; a home where sights, sounds, events, and people constantly inspire one another. Every day a new possibility is uncovered. As an student I have fully developed my OWN personal understanding of the world we live in.I have been given the opportunity to seek gratification in MYSELF. Initially, I came to Holy Trinity for its outstanding and professional theater department in hope of pursing performing arts after high school. Besides the fact that I am now going to college as a Dance major (which was my initial dream),I have realized that Holy Trinity gave me more than a future; it gave me the knowledge and confidence to pursue any ambition or intuition. Holy Trinity's amazing faculty, student body, and legacy is what motivates a Titan to further their dreams. There's no place I would rather be than Holy Trinity.

An amazing four years at this school shaped me into who I am today and made me the driven and successful college student I now am. The community is just so supportive and unlike any other high school's. I wouldn't trade my time at Trinity for the world.

As a graduate of Holy Trinity, I was thrilled when my daughter selected Holy Trinity for her high school. As much as I loved it as a student, I love it at least a million times more as a parent. When my daughter starts college in September, she will have as many credits as most college sophomores, thanks to Trinity's extensive college classes and AP classes. Her faith is stronger than most adults I know, and when she was offered a full tuition academic scholarship from a private, non-denominational college, she said she would never consider attending a non-Catholic college where she would be unable to attend daily Mass, as she has done as often as possible during her time at Trinity. The faculty and administration are phenomenal. Holy Trinity is so much more than a great school, it is a loving family environment where a child can truly flourish.

" how high school should be" is the motto and the truth! So glad I had the opportunity to go there and now am sending my kids - it is certainly a big financial sacrifice but one I'm happy to make!

I agree, it is the best monetary investment I have ever made, and I praise God for it everyday! Of course if you can not afford this type of private school it would be better to enroll your children in a religous education program, Sunday school etc. Our family freinds have children in various Catholic High Schools throughout Nassua County with Holy Trinity being one of them, and as far as we can see these young bright minds are going to many TOP UNIVERSITYS!! Many are scholars, athletes playing Division 1 athletics, Many have attained full scholarships, but most importantly I would perfer my children to attend a school that prays daily and would not trade that for the "public" educational system that is lacking the most important ingredients in raising children, love! Catholic school teacher's are there because they care! Lastly, it does not matter what college your child goes to, however, it does matter who your child becomes, what morals, values, purpose in life they will have, will they believe in God! How they will learn to treat other people, respecting parents, siblings, families and friends,these things and more are a daily emphasis in Catholic schools.

$9000 a year!!?? Trinity just isn't worth it. Local public high schools are just as good, if not better academically. If your interested in the religious aspect, send them to CCD at your local parish. While public schools and a few select Catholic high schools are sending their graduates to the Ivies and other top tier schools. Trinity continually sends its graduates to the likes Molloy, Mount St. Mary's College and Lemoyne College. Easy, safe and Catholic. Save your money for college. This is not the best place.

Hands down- the best Catholic school on the island. Holy Trinity is more than a learning, it's a family that values community above all else. While having reputable sports teams, strong AP and honors level courses, insightful teachers, and a theater department that compares to none other, Trinity instills valuable life lessons and Christian teachings applicable in every day life. Students regularly gain acceptances to top tier universities. Getting involved in the Trinity community is easy and beyond rewarding. The principal shows up to most every school event. I HIGHLY recommend Holy Trinity to any parent who wants their child to have a successful and enjoyable high school experience.

As a former student I couldn't recommend this school to anyone. Parents would send their kids from all over the island from districts as far as 15 miles away. Never made any sense too me. Long island has good public schools some excellent. Some students were expelled from other catholic schools in the area and trinity would accept them. This is something other catholic schools would not do including the ones they came from. A lot of kids who went there misbehaved and bullying was common. I was attacked my freshman year and they said nothing could be done because I waited three days too report. I was embarrassed that it happened and that's why I had waited. I really should have left earlier than I did and I regret my decision. Some students claimed they didn't take the catholic high school entrance exam too get in. I cannot confirm this is true but it surprised me. I would recommend parents choose another private school or just go to public school. I went too public school after and I thought the education was the same if not better in some cases. If catholic schools were a better choice at one point seems like they are not now.

This school has it all: Smaller classes, AP programs for entry into the better universities, truly dedicated teachers, intelligent attitudes, amazing clubs for the children, impressive fields, and well established sports programs. Keep up the great work! Far better than KMS in Uniondale so definitely better than other Catholic schools. Our commute is further but well worth it!

holy trinity high school cannot be compared with other catholic high schools. they are literally an glorify hicksville high school. if you live in hicksville some people only use trinity cause of convenience. you should not. there discipline does not compare to the other catholic h.s.. they dont enforce them to go to mass. the students are not respectful. i have spoken to several parents and they all agree that there is no discipline. the way they dress for school sloppy and does not get them ready for college or the real world. so if your a catholic and looking for a good and decent high school make sure you check all aspects of the other schools. its your money and you want the best for your dollar, trinity is one of themost expensive high schools. if youlive in hicksville and your child wants trinity you might as well go tohicksvill high school.

Holy Trinity is the quintessential Catholic High School. It provides a dynamic combination of high academic standards (especially for students accepted into AP or Honors courses) and sound Christian discipline set in real-world situations (that is, co-ed and diverse enrollment.) Trinity's teaching staff is second-to-none! Their dedication and expertise are imparted to each student, regardless of Regents or Honors level. Honors students are encouraged to strive for Advanced Regents diplomas. Since our teachers do not prepare nor influence these comprehensive tests, they teach us how to apply the course information, and not just memorize it. Their devotion never waivered(even without a contract with the Diocese.) They continued to come in early and stay after school for anyone who wanted extra help. Holy Trinity is a family. HTHS is a complete Christian experience that fully prepared me for the challenges I'll have in college and thereafter.

Holy Trinity offers challenging Honors courses, taught by outstanding teachers who encourage and demand excellence. A/P courses further prepare qualified students for their college years. Spiritual guidance and a warm, family atmosphere are part of the total Trinity experience.

I was graduate many many years ago and absolutely loved my high school years. After moving away and returning to the area 4 years ago, I began to re-connect through the Alumni program and now my daughter will be attending this fall. I can honestly say that the loving and nurturing environment has not changed one bit since my days. I let my daughter make her own decision - we visited Our Lady of Mercy and St. Anthony's - she was completely sold on Trinity and I know that she will have the same unbelievable experience in high school that I had. I would recommend this school to anyone that wants a nurturing, warm, supportive and accepting environment for their children as they prepare for college.

Highly-competitive honors & A/P courses, with dedicated, highly-qualified, encouraging teachers. Holy Trinity is not just a 'school'; it's an 'experience' that prepares young men and women to face the challenges of college. Great friendships were formed during my years at HTHS. I will forever be grateful to my Trinity family.

I commend the meritorious service of HTHS teachers. After learning of Trinity's competitive Honors Program, I decided to accept the challenge. That was four years ago! The studies were rigorous, the teachers were demanding (but always fair and supportive), and my fellow-students were always competitive & spirited. I am proud to have become a strong Christian man who is prepared to meet the challenges that await me in college and in my adult life. Thank you to the entire Holy Trinity family.

Holy Trinity High School was the best decision we ever made for our child and is truly a top tier school offering excellent academics and a wonderful array of extra curricular activites. The Teachers at Holy Trinity go above and beyond. Holy Trinity Sports are top notch. Any child that attends Holy Trinity truly gets a well rounded education -religion, academics, extracurricular, many clubs, wonderful sports, terrific social experiences and a school that is a home away from home. If you are entertaining the thought of sending your child to Holy Trinity, think no further, Holy Trinity will afford your child a wonderful education, a terrific social life and a absolutely great High School experience.

Best choice we've ever made for our child -- and worth every penny of the tuition! Teachers are outstanding, and challenge the minds of the students; they are always 'there' for the students. There are so many courses to select from, providing a college-like atmosphere. Qualified students can take Honors Courses, and can later apply for Advanced or College Courses. The cultural diversity and co-ed enrollment adds to the enrichment of a student's complete education. Although academic success is Holy Trinity's priority, the numerous sports and club activities are strongly encouraged as part of a student's day. If you're looking for a competitive, high-quality education for your child, send him or her to Holy Trinity High School.

Holy Trinity is definately the best Catholic Hgh Shcool on Long Island. I know for a fact that they offer more Advanced Placement and College level courses than chaminade or kellenberg. Trinty also has far superior music and art programs. Athletics could use imprvement but disicpline learning and extracurricular activites are exceptional.

My daughter graduated from Holy Trinity in 2007, and absolutely loved her time there. Her education was top notch as are her friends made there. Advanced courses were recommended and offered. Great counselors and teachers. Parents are all involved and have imparted the same values of hard work and a great education,high moral standards as the school has on the students. Great school.

Very overrated school. A Roman Catholic school in a community with a large Italian population and it does not offer Italian. My son was disapointed with the music program. The public middle school has perhaps the best music program on long island. Public school also offers Italian and Latin - not offered at Trinity. Don't be fooled.

As a parent of a recent graduate who was accepted to 8 top tier colleges in the northeast, I credit the whole Holy Trinity community. Course offerings here are far superior to the other Catholic HS's on Long Island with AP courses so plentiful. One aspect of allowing the student to be in Honors in the subjects they excell in as opposed to the other Catholic HS's that label your freshman as Honors or not. Transition to college was great after graduation as this school provides numerous social and religious offerings to the child during those tough teen years so they know the real world outside of the Catholic coccoon. Guidance does a great job in realistically gearing you towards college and scholarships. Administration is always out in the hallways with the kids. Religion is geared toward the spirituality of teens - bless Trinity.

The quality of the education my daughter received in her freshman year of 2004/2005 was unbelievable. The students all welcomed her the students and staff are helpful, and she was taught so well that she looks foward to sept. As a parent I feel the cost of tution was nothing compared to the level of education and the enviroment that she is learning in I plan to have my 2 sons attend this school also.

Holy Trinity High School is by far one if the best schools on Long Island! The quality - and dedication - of their teaching staff is beyond reproach. Two of my children have already embarked upon their college careers - at the university of their choice - and I have one more that is entering his junior year. Each child was dealt with on an individual basis; their strengths and their weaknesses worked on by dedicated teachers. My eldest pursued the Drama program, the next a successful athletic program, and the youngest was most suited to the Art program. Having the experience in all three programs, I must admit that Holy Trinity's programs cater to whatever may interest your child. We are blessed to have such exceptional teachers as a support to the work that the parents are doing at home. Excellent education at a relatively affordable price!

As a former student I can tell you Holy Trinity is a great high school. It has a wonderful theatre program. The teachers were wonderful and the student body was really like a big family. I know that sounds cheesy, but it's true. 2 of my classmates died senior year and I cannot even tell you how close it made the entire grade. The academics are great...they offer honor and AP and college credits.

After 4 years of a wonderful high school experience, terrific teachers, and meeting kids from all over, our daughter graduated from Holy Trinity and went to NYU on scholarship. NYU also accepted the St. John's University credits she accumulated at Trinity from taking college level courses. Our son is currently a junior at Trinity and is actively involved in extra-curricular activities and superior academics. Both of our children met teachers they considered mentors and pushed them to excel. Wonderful school, great kids, a superior academic experience in every aspect!
