A great alternative to the large class sizes and behavior problems in the public schools. A wonderful principal, caring staff members and family like atmosphere. We are glad we made the switch - it is worth every penny!

This school is not going anywhere, hear that Syracuse? Come on Oswego, come and visit this diamond in the rough. Let your voice be heard -cheers for 7th and 8th grade. Let the new principal know you want this in Oswego for your children. The new principal is a go-getter so tell him what you want and he'll do his best to work with the bureaucratic hoopla down south. Let's rock this town!

I think the results are proof in the pudding.....and the results are this - The Oswego High school Valedictorian and Salutatorian for 2010 are graduates of Trinity. As a matter of fact, 7 of the top 10 in the class of 2010 are graduates of Trinity. This year is not an exception either, these results are seen EVERY year. It is a testament to the school, the values the school teaches and the dedication of its teachers. I was a public school graduate but, all 3 of my children will be graduates of Trinity. In my eyes, there is no reason to even consider an alternative.

I love the environment in which my children work and play five days a week. I feel secure that they are safe, nurtured, and learning at Trinity. Parents for the most part are involved and are integral to the success of the school and the extra curricular activities that ensure community and family involvement.

We are extremely pleased with Trinity Catholic. Our 3 - year old twins are enrolled in both the 2 - day and 3 - day 3 year old programs. Mrs. Sabatini and Mrs. Enwright are excellent teachers and have a true connection with their students. Our twins have flourished at Trinity and we look forward to many more rewarding years with this schoool.

My daughter attends the four year old (five day) program. I believe that understanding the 'whole child' is very important. Her teacher always gives positive praise and creates an atmoshpere for learning and fun. My daughter comes home excited and energized to tell me what she did in Science, ELA (not that she realizes that is what it is), Phys. Ed, Music, or Library. It is an excellent program. I will definitely send my son there when he is 4.

I am so happy that we decided to send our children to Trinity Catholic School. Ms. Law is an outstanding kindergarten teacher. Mrs. Stone is wonderful also. I am truly amazed at how much the children have learned already. They love going to school. It is so comforting to know that they are being taught in such a nurturing environment. I can not tell you how confident we are in our decision to send our children to Trinity Catholic School!

We are very happy with our daughter's progress through second grade. She's not only become a good student, the school enhances the values we try to teach at home. She has also developed a love of learning, which we hope never fades. The tuition we pay is worth every cent.

The culture of Trinity Catholic School is just right for my grandson. The teachers are wonderful role models. They pay careful attention to the needs of the children and are creative in crafting programs of instruction. The principal is dedicated, hardworking and devoted to the school staff and children. It is easy to judge the quality of Trinity Catholic- just visit you will see children on task, enjoying their work and their class mates. They are enthusiastic and smile alot. This does not happen by accident! I am confident that my grandson will be the kind of sixth grader that welcomed him to TCS.

My kindergarten daughter is the 3rd generation to attend an Oswego Catholic school. Both my husband and I didn't even consider our public schools when it was time to register our daughter for kindergarten. I am a public school teacher in a different district but chose Trinity for my daughter. I know she will receive an excellent education there and they will continue to support our beliefs and morals.

My son graduated from Trinity last year and I am pleased to say that the academic skills, social values and work ethic that he developed while a student at Trinity have served him extremely well during his first year of middle school. I am grateful that we were able to be a part of this knowledgeable and dedicated school 'family'.

I love this school not only because it has good academics but they are teaching my child to be a better person. They are instilling the teachings of Jesus in her and those are perfect to teach a young child how to grow up to be a good person, be compassionate, honest and fair. I believe this is the environment where minds are allowed to blossom and grow.

We have been very pleased with the welcoming environment Trinity Catholic School provides. My children transferred here from the local public schools and immediately felt welcomed by the faculty and other students. My daughter has a learning disability and was made fun of at her previous school. The students at Trinity don't see her as any different than them and quickly treated her as if she'd always been there. This made her feel extremely comfortable right away. We are very pleased with this school.

I can not say enough about what a great school this is! The faculty and staff provide such a warm learning environment for my children. The academic level seems to be higher than the surrounding public schools. The children are not only learning the basics, but they are learning to become good people. Parents are always welcome in the school and classrooms. The teachers provide constant communication with us. Yes, we pay tuition, but my husband and I feel that this is an investment in our children and their futures, and can't think of anything more important to spend our money on. My children love to go to school each and every day.
