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.

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.

Value Over Cost

Trinity is bursting at the seams with a staff that, of course, is ready to teach at a high level, but also is given an environment where they can nurture, connect, and see value in each student. That is the best value, one that makes our “cost” seem worth every bit of adjustment and planning.

The Three-Legged School

To provide the strongest foundation to our students, we desire that what is said and done at home is in alignment with the church and with the school. All three “legs” play a part in the spiritual nourishment of the child, but none of the legs can do the work without the others.
