My combat engineer company in Germany had two primary missions: clear the way so tank units could advance, and deny the enemy freedom of maneuver. As a parent and later as a teacher, I recognized that several important lessons transferred over to my new roles.
Trinity Christian School exists to educate students to the glory of God by pursuing excellence for mind and heart. Trinity seeks to...
Truth is the word of God, written and Incarnate.

Trinity is like a second home to me. I transferred from a public school the middle of my junior year, and it has been the best decision I’ve ever made. The teachers and staff are incredibly caring, the students are wonderful, and the community is beyond loving. This school really cares about the students and their lives. The education is top-notch and I’ve learned so much more than I did at public school. I would recommend this school to anyone, especially those who are looking for a school with a strong Christian influence.

This is my 9th year here as a teacher, and I've never worked under such a warm, caring atmosphere, with peers and administrators who support me, challenge me to be better, and encourage me every single day, without fail. They show the love of Christ to each other and their students, and their earnest desire is to train strong men and women of faith and integrity.

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.
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.

“Excellence for Mind and Heart” -- more than a vision. . .a reality. We’re in our 26th year as part of the Trinity family. My wife Mrs. Sherri Copeland joined the staff back in ’93. Sherri’s first class was in our wedding and some of her students over the years have since returned as teachers and staff. Thank you, Trinity, for being such a major part of our family and for assisting us in shaping the godly women that we proudly call our daughters.

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.
The parable of the sower found in the books of Matthew and Mark talks about what can happen to the seeds of faith that we plant in others’ lives. What it doesn’t say is how long it may take for the seeds to grow or if we will ever see the garden that is produced. Nevertheless, our role is to keep planting the seeds.
Instilling spiritual wisdom alongside conventional wisdom is no longer optional for our children—it is necessary. Because providing such an education requires the best resources for our students and competitive salaries for our amazing faculty and staff, it can also mean that some families believe they are unable to afford tuition and assume that Trinity is not an option for them.
On the 20th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, the Trinity community mourns the loss of loved ones and the heroes who gave their lives to protect and serve their country. We also remember with solemn gratitude the servicemen and women who bravely responded to the attacks on our nation.
