I’m at Trinity Because...

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.

Andrea Verwys, Trinity Parent
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

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.

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.

      Study Abroad Before College?

      When our Trinity freshman started teaching himself the Korean alphabet, we thought it was a phase. When he took a beginning Korean class through Fairfax County’s adult education program during the summer after his sophomore year, we were bemused. When he applied for a National Security Language Initiative for Youth scholarship to study in South Korea the summer after his junior year, we were scared!

      Space and Grace: Welcoming Sojourners

      Approximately a dozen students at TCS have returned home to the United States after living for an extended time in Germany, Ecuador, Jordan, France, and other places. While they were gone, we switched to laptops in school, bought iPhones for children, began communicating more and more via texts and Snapchat, used Uber instead of a taxi, and experienced highway tolls set by traffic volume that could be $55 to travel a few miles.

      Back to School: Focus and Reset

      Let's face it, in today's fast-paced and productivity-driven culture, making your health a priority can seem impossible. Creating space to engage in healthful habits can even be perceived as selfish. How can you possibly make time for family dinner, physical activity, and adequate sleep when you have so many pressing obligations. The struggle is real!

      Vaping

      The Northern Virginia area is close to the District of Columbia and the State of Maryland, both jurisdictions that have relaxed their laws concerning marijuana. Police in the NOVA/DC/MD area are seeing an increase in drug-related crime. As parents, we need to be more aware than ever that this drug culture is pervasive and right under our noses.
