Upper School Application
The Trinity Christian Upper School program is characterized by rigorous college-preparatory academic study integrated with active spiritual growth and character building challenges, service to others in the school, the local community and beyond, and opportunities for physical fitness and athletic competition. All high school students desiring such a program are encouraged to apply.
Class sizes and space are limited, and preference is given to students for whom Trinity’s program is best suited. Admission to the upper school program is selective and based on evaluation of previous transcripts, standardized test scores, parent and student applications, and the student interview. Additionally, recommendations and behavioral records are reviewed. An admission assessment is required.
