Student Life

Welcome to Trinity Christian School where our goal is to prepare students to faithfully serve Christ, loving Him with all of their heart, mind, soul, and strength. It is our desire that each student will be equipped with a comprehensive college prepatory education while not compromising Biblical doctrine in a nurturing environment, all the while enjoying the many extracurricular activities that are available to our student population.

From academics to athletics all of our teachers are capable of assisting parents in the discipling of their children’s heart, coming along side them to reinforce Christian values and ideals.
