About Us

From the Head of School

Welcome to the Trinity School of Midland website! These pages offer glimpses of our robust college preparatory community for students in grades PreK-3 through 12 as well as nurturing childcare classes for infants through two year olds.
As an independent school in the Episcopal tradition, the mission guides Trinity’s programming, including curriculum, arts, athletics, Chapel, and community service.
Trinity School is a college preparatory community that provides a nurturing environment to enrich the mind, strengthen the body, enliven the soul, and inspire servant leadership.
Designed to enrich the mind, Trinity’s curriculum prepares students to be successful in college and beyond, equipping them with creativity, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills. Trinity School values a challenging academic environment that also focuses on developing students’ personal maturity and emotional intelligence through their experiences on and off campus. Trinity believes that academic preparation should be both theoretical and practical, and students graduate with the skills and habits they need to succeed in a world where there are few easy answers.
With daily Physical Education classes and recess in grades PreK-3 through 6 and competitive interscholastic sports beginning in grade 7, students have multiple opportunities to strengthen the body. Through these activities, students also learn teamwork, cooperation, self-discipline, and perseverance.
Daily Chapel services enliven the soul. Trinity School values its Episcopal tradition, and Chapel services are conducted according to the Book of Common Prayer. Trinity School seeks to follow Jesus’ commandment to love one another. Its values are based on the Episcopal Church’s baptismal covenant to “strive for justice and peace, and to respect the dignity of every human being.” Regardless of faith background, Trinity invites all students and faculty to share in the spiritual life of the community but requires no one to subscribe to a specific doctrine or principle.
Beginning with our youngest students, Trinity seeks to inspire servant leadership. Lower School students participate in BIGG, Big Ideas for the Greater Good. They research needs in the local community and provide their own time, talent, and/or treasure to meet those needs. Upper School students must accrue at least 90 hours of community service over four years to fulfill their graduation requirements.
The importance of community permeates Trinity’s campus. First grade students have senior buddies, and all students are part of a Pony Pal or Corral Pal group. The infants and toddlers in the childcare program are campus celebrities.
With a strong commitment to creating an environment where every Charger believes that they belong, we hope that you will find a place with us as well. This website will give a good sense of who we are. We hope you like what you see and will schedule a visit to learn more and experience Trinity yourself.
