Philosophy & Curriculum

Mission Statement

“Trinity Christian School, an outreach ministry of Trinity Church, commits to a partnership with parents to inspire academic and personal excellence in a Christ-centered environment.”

Philosophy

Trinity Christian School recognizes that God created the whole child: body, soul, and spirit. We believe that the education process is dependent upon this basic philosophy in providing the right viewpoint, basic truths, principles for interpreting life, and the study of all subjects. We desire to teach that all truth is God’s truth, that Jesus Christ is central in the truth, and that the Holy Spirit is the discerner of the truth.

Trinity Christian School is accredited with ACSI (Association of Christian Schools International), preschool through eighth grade, and with WASC (Western Association of Schools and Colleges) kindergarten through eighth grade.

Curriculum

Curriculum includes a phonics-based early reader program, integrative technology, and stimulating after school clubs. Moral character and leadership development are encouraged through chapels, student council, and a dedicated staff.
