The Essence of Education: Human Awakening
At Trinity, your child won’t be introduced to “school as usual,” but to an experience of human awakening. Human awakening is the joyful experience of coming more fully alive to the world around us and the world within ourselves.
The Aim of Education: Truth, Beauty and Goodness
Trinity School’s motto–Verum, Bonum, Pulchrum–is Latin for “Truth, Goodness, Beauty.” But this is more than a motto, it is a way of life.
The Process of Education: Grammar, Logic and Rhetoric
At Trinity School, each element of our curriculum moves through the classical stages of a liberal arts education traditionally knowns as the trivium. These stages (grammar, logic and rhetoric) describe a basic structure of learning that any student must follow in order to master a discipline.
The Means of Education: Our Three Modes of Instruction
Different occasions call for different modes of instruction. At Trinity School, your child will experience learning through a careful blend of didactic instruction, coaching and questioning.
The Outcome of Education: Life in the Community of Learners
Human beings were not made to be alone. Children as well as adults thrive when they are involved in meaningful work with one another. So education at Trinity School is designed to take place within a genuine community of learners. The ability students gain to solve real-world problems through collaboration and dialogue is valuable for future pursuits in academics, business and politics. Even more importantly, it is vital for life.
