"I am very thankful for the foundation that Trinity provided."
“Growing up, Trinity School was a sanctuary. It was a place to practice leadership, cultivate my spirituality, develop dreams, and learn how to be a student. Most importantly, it was a place that allowed me to fail. The teachers and coaches were in-tune with and cared deeply for all the students. They would lift us up and encourage us to be our best selves. There is not a better school in Midland!”
