Trinity School of Midland Honor Code:

“Because I believe that integrity is essential, I promise not to lie, cheat, or steal, or tolerate those who do.”
The Upper School program of studies is college preparatory in that it satisfies the entrance requirements of American colleges and universities. The curriculum provides a solid base of common, foundational courses during freshman and sophomore years and allows for more personalization junior and senior year. With advanced and honors courses, electives, and opportunities for independent study and expeditionary learning, students are able to pursue a course of study that is aligned with their interests while remaining challenging and engaging.

Beginning this year, the class of 2025 will take part in the "Seek & Find" academic research program. This four-year program is designed to turn student' passions and interests into meaningful investigation, fueling critical thinking and innovative ideas. Through this program, Freshman and Sophmores will learn how to conduct research, Juniors will identify research topics or porential topics and conduct research, and Seniors will continue that research and conclude with a community presentation of their findings.

“Trinity means the world to me because it has given me a new family and has become my home away from home. I have learned so much from the 15 years I was there and I am sad to be leaving.”
