About Us

West Texas is fortunate to have a school with Trinity School’s mission and commitment to academic excellence and personal development. Founded in 1958, Trinity School exists for the future, rooted in the values of the past. As we all face an increasingly complex and sometimes threatening world, we have a special responsibility and opportunity to help children develop the intellect, discernment, character and spiritual fiber that will enable them to thrive in unexplored times.

Trinity School is dedicated to upholding exemplary academic, ethical, and behavioral standards for all its students. We want our students to know the value of giving their best effort and to experience the power of knowledge. We want them to learn that honesty is intrinsically worthwhile. We want them to understand that their individual behavior affects those around them, and we want them to develop a healthy spiritual life.

Trinity School exists because of the vision of its founders and their appreciation for the value of education. We have the same responsibility today for the next generation and the advantage of inheriting a legacy that is ours to perpetuate. Won’t you join us in our endeavor?

  • How does Trinity support students in the college application process?

    Every year, the 10th grade class of Trinity School spends an entire week visiting colleges and universities of all different sizes and types.  This gives them an early start in thinking about the different types of colleges available to them as they prepare to do their college applications during the next year.

    Trinity School has a full-time college advisor who is 100% dedicated to counseling students through the college application process.  Other schools in the area have part-time counselors or counselors whose time is also taken up with testing, academic advising, etc., leaving only about 25% of their time to college counseling for much higher numbers of students.
