Teens commonly don’t understand their changing emotions. They can be loving and kind one minute, and irritable and impolite the next. It is easy to feel upset when they act this way and difficult to respond without elevated emotions ourselves.
Trinity Christian School exists to educate students to the glory of God by pursuing excellence for mind and heart. Trinity seeks to...

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.
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.

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.
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!
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.
. . . as happy as we are for a break, establishing and adjusting to a new routine can challenge both students and parents.
