Headmaster's Welcome

Welcome to the Trinity Christian School of Fairfax website. I trust that it will provide you with a helpful introduction to Trinity and its programs. Our purpose is to educate students to the glory of God by bringing them to a proper understanding of God, themselves, and the world He has created.

Since its founding in 1987, Trinity has sought to educate the whole student by pursuing excellence for mind and heart. This necessarily involves the transmission of truth that engages the mind, grips the heart, and evokes a resonant response of service. Such knowledge encourages cohesive thinking and shapes godly character by establishing a consistent Christian worldview that is anchored in the creative, sustaining, and redemptive work of Jesus Christ. Our goal is that our students will be salt and light in their various vocations by living lives that challenge the prevailing culture and bring glory to the Lord Jesus Christ by serving Him well in all places and at all times, whatever the cost.

In the forefront of this endeavor is a capable, committed, and Christian faculty, who encourage our students to think critically across the breadth of a rigorous curriculum. Our teachers strive to help each student be a good and faithful servant of God by thinking God’s thoughts after Him and by rightly interpreting and developing God’s creation for His glory according to His Word. The support of parents who consistently teach biblical knowledge in the home is an indispensable part of Trinity’s educational effort.

By God’s grace, Trinity enjoys a strong history and looks forward to a promising future. We invite you to learn more about us via our website or to arrange for a campus visit through our Admission Office.

May God bless you,

David Vanderpoel, Ph.D.

Though you may not always feel noble, your teachers are proud of you and I am proud of you. We cherish your nobility of spirit. More importantly, God sees you as noble because He made you so. Like unborn forests in the acorn cup, you have always been in the mind of God. Before you were born, He knew you, loved you, and rejoiced in you. He gave you His image and created you in His likeness.

— Dr. Vanderpoel delivering remarks to his "favorite class" at the 2016 Commencement Ceremony.
