Distance Learning In Action
Trinity's response to COVID-19
Trinity's campus was temporarily closed in mid-March to help contain the spread of COVID-19, however, learning never stopped as students participated in a robust program of remote education.
- Students engaged in synchronous instruction four hours a day, four days per week.
- Planned projects, research, and presentations continued with minimal modification.
- Regular assessments ensured essential learning objectives were met.
- Grades were awarded consistent with our normal high standards.
Trinity resumed on-campus learning on Monday, August 24, 2020 with five full days of instruction weekly and a synchronous remote learning option.
- Assessments and grading remain consistent with our normal high standards.
- Whether on campus or remote, Trinity maintains its rigor, fully preparing students for collegiate studies.

Thank you, Trinity teachers and staff for the amazing work you have done for your students.
Here's a small snapshot of morning devotions at Trinity. Every weekday morning at 7:30 a.m., over 100 faculty and staff members of Trinity Christian School meet together online to read God's word and pray.
We have been incredibly grateful for every teacher impacting our children...Teachers are still teaching! The students are still learning and growing and connecting with their course material and each other! Our son is still running for student government and had a Zoom session with JV Baseball! We thank the Lord for these connections!
Our family would struggle without the steadying force of Trinity Christian School. THANK YOU for all that you have done. We continue to pray for all of Trinity's teachers and staff. We continue to thank the Lord for the blessing of this wonderful school. THANK YOU so, so much.

A Memory Verse Plus More!
What began as a message to his fourth grade teacher became words of encouragement for us all. God is in control!
We have been amazed by how well everything has been organized, and by how adaptive the administration and faculty have been as we’ve embarked on this new adventure.
Our boys have been enjoying the online approach and continue to learn from home. Also, we both work full time and have been busy during this period, and I’ve been impressed by how it’s been manageable for us, even for our youngest, due to the teachers’ efforts. All the faculty have been great and very organized.
I want to say thank you and let you know that we have been very impressed.

Take a Small Peek Inside a Classroom
Every spring, Trinity students in Grade 12 are required to defend their 15 -20 page capstone senior theses before a formal panel of faculty and administrators. This time, it is happening virtually!
Students in our Wind Ensemble learned a new song "on their own" then dressed up for their final performance.

After learning about the Last Supper and reading Luke 22:14-34, students in Grade 4 made their way to the kitchen! In this optional activity, they tried their hand at making unleavened bread.

This has certainly been a transition for us, but we are blessed to know God and his peace that surpasses all understanding. I have experienced more guidance and direction for my children (thanks to TCS) than I have for my own PhD program . . . I want you [Ms. Pierce] to know that I have been reflecting on the words you spoke during one of the kindergarten parent meetings. I may not be quoting you accurately, but you stated that, "our children are not a distraction from important work, they are the important work."
