College Advising

The goal of Trinity School’s College Advising office is to provide exceptional service for our students and families by helping each student find their “best fit” college, enabling them to discover more of who God made them to be. 
Each student’s strengths, goals, and extracurricular commitments are different, and thus the course planning and selection process is a very individual one. Students, parents, and advisors are urged to keep in mind that colleges evaluate students in good part by the course choices reflected on the transcript. Students who aspire to selective schools are encouraged to enroll in a fourth science or math course, an upper-level history or social science elective, or a fourth or fifth year of world language, even if they anticipate that they may not earn a higher grade. Generally, more competitive or highly selective universities seek students who have mastered a more demanding high school program. Ideally, students will present a broad portrait to colleges of experience and learning with depth in selected curricula.
