Values represent the conscience of the community; they are like "pillars" in an organization. Values distinguish the School's philosophy and shape its ethos, culture, and practice. Values are springboards for daily action and filters for decision-making. Named values are both seen among us already and are the goals we aspire to attain every day.
At Trinity School we value Character, which is manifested in...
Faith is foundational to our everyday ethical decisions, thinking, and behavior.
We believe each of us should pursue excellence in everything we do, working hard to be all we can be, and Trinity School will, as an institution, pursue excellence in all aspects of school life.
We prize learning both as the outcome of hard work and as the life-long process by which wisdom is gained. We cultivate a passion for learning in all that we do in and out of the classroom, in our curriculum and instruction, in our many extracurricular activities, in our life experiences, and when solving the problems with which we are faced.
We celebrate the School's traditions, practice good manners, support friends and peers, and show respect and appreciation for both those in authority and those we serve.
We respect individuals and acknowledge the differences among us. We value the fact that each person is gifted with unique abilities, talents, interests, backgrounds, and challenges. We endeavor to be responsive to differences in readiness to learn, in styles of learning, in ability for various pursuits, and inclinations and interests. We who are Trinity School come from diverse social, economic, family, religious, and ethnic backgrounds. Each of us contributes to the quality of the school, and we learn from each other as we are challenged by differing opinions, ideas, beliefs, and presuppositions.
Each student's education is made richer by full participation in the extracurricular opportunities of the School. Commitment to community service, student government, athletics, studio arts, performing arts, daily chapel, clubs, and international programs will bring out hidden talents, cultivate interest, and make us well rounded, healthy persons.
Positive leadership is modeled, practiced, and encouraged by giving students opportunities to develop their God-given talents and to strengthen their skill in decision-making, team-building, and conflict resolution.
Service within the School and to the community and beyond fosters social responsibility, forms character, and builds confidence in persons who learn they can have a positive impact and make a lasting difference.
