Providing a quality education for your child is an investment in his or her own future.


Unfortunately, educational trends in the United States are making it harder for a wide variety of families to gain access to private education. At Trinity School, we are dedicated to resisting this trend and to making the education we offer affordable for as many families as possible.

Our full tuition represents an excellent value in the Twin Cities market. Nonetheless, we understand many families with qualified children may not be able to afford the entire cost of tuition.

In fact, more than half of current Trinity students receive some kind of assistance in the form of need-based scholarships or tuition reduction. For those who apply for assistance, the final cost to attend is adjusted on a sliding scale according to each family’s income and financial situation. Many factors, including family size and the number of students enrolled in other private schools, affect each family’s final cost to attend.

Figuring Out Your Final Cost to Attend
Like many independent schools, we begin our formal financial consideration process by having parents complete the Blackbaud Financial Aid Management Application. This is a tool that assesses a family’s ability to contribute to educational expenses. While this is not our final benchmark, it is an important step in keeping our process fair and transparent. If you would like to learn more about the financial aid process, please contact our financial aid office: Mr. Jerry Rynda, Director of Financial Aid, jrynda@trinityschools.org or 651.789.2887.

Once your child has been accepted to Trinity, you may apply for financial assistance by completing the following steps:

  1. Speak to the financial aid office;
  2. Complete the Blackbaud Financial Aid Management Application;
  3. Sign and return a tuition contract. (Receiving the contract is an important part of our process, but your commitment is contingent upon our final determination of your family’s cost to attend.)

Tuition
Your own child’s final cost to attend will depend upon the outcome of the process outlined above.
