Character is the courage to live the truth of God’s word uncompromisingly in a compromising age.

– Matthew 20:28
Students are made in God’s image, and each one is unique. Trinity serves the whole student.
Academic credentials + life experiences + Christian testimony = great influence!
Every senior’s Christian worldview presentation: a 15- to 20-page thesis and a 30-minute oral defense before a formal panel of faculty and administrators.
Scripture permeates every subject and guides the interpretation of all learning. The goal is to define, describe, and see the world the way God sees it.
A strong core + electives in every department + extracurricular opportunities.Learn More
There are many reasons that I love Trinity. In ninth grade, when I made the transition from public school to TCS, I was blessed to discover a place where I experienced the charity of a Christian community in the classroom setting. I could have wept with joy to hear my teachers begin each class with a prayer to Jesus Christ. I did not believe that a place like Trinity existed until I experienced it for myself.

Mrs. Connor’s kindergarten students adore her and she is teaching them, by example, to pray without ceasing and to look to scripture as the basis for everything they think or do.
It is easy to assume that people choose to work at Trinity or send their children here because of the outstanding facilities and beautiful campus. The truth is, our biggest selling point is the godliness of our students and staff.Michael Dewey, Assistant Headmaster for Academic Affairs
I know that a good teacher will come into the classroom with the intent to mold my mind and to change the way I think, and I want to put my mind in the hands of teachers whose highest goal is to see me become a mature follower of Christ.
Emily Lubenec, Class of 2011
People are really seeking a savior, and that's what excited me about [being a language teacher] — being able to give my students tools to share the Gospel with someone who doesn't know the Lord.
Neomi Sarmiento, Upper School Teacher
Sending our children to this school was the best investment in their future that we EVER made in EVERY way!!! So thankful for TCS!!!

Trinity Christian School served as the soil in which the seed of my faith grew and was nurtured; there, for the first time, I encountered a Christianity that was more than I expected . . . the history of the church, of which I became conscious for the first time at Trinity, was the mechanism by which Holy God ushered me into true discipleship. And from the first moments of faith until now, the overwhelming value of the knowledge of the history of the Lord’s people has been one of the most important refrains in my life’s song of worship.
The decision to attend Trinity was pivotal in my life…I was encouraged to glorify God in all endeavors. Academically I was challenged with rigorous study that laid the foundation for my future work in critical care medicine. Courses and activities were calculated to train leaders. I was honored to be selected as a Flight Nurse with UVA Pegasus, the critical care medevac program at UVA. Without the confidence and knowledge rooted in the truth of God's Word instilled in me during my time at Trinity, I wonder if I would have had the courage to pursue this path this early in my career.Read More
Trinity equipped me with all the practical skills to succeed in college and beyond. But more importantly, my teachers at Trinity taught me how to think critically---how to put things in perspective and consider all things in light of God's truth. I'm working on my Master's now, and I still draw upon what I learned at Trinity.
