Thank you to the Mothers and Fathers Clubs: from the Teachers

The teachers are very thankful to the Mothers and Fathers Clubs for their generous donations for our Parent Teacher Conferences that took place on September 28. The delicious snacks and drinks that were provided to us were just what we needed to inspire us all evening long. We are so fortunate to partner with such generous parents.

Throughout this block, IB seniors and juniors have been busy understanding concepts and practicing skills in their various courses. Internal assessments (IAs) will soon be underway in these courses, from English and World Language to Mathematics, Science, Psychology, and the Arts. These assessments will comprise about 25% of the final IB grade earned. While it's too early to think about the May IB exams, students will be registering for their exam sessions during 3A/B this coming Wednesday and Thursday in room 205. Fee invoices per subject will be sent to families in November. If you have any questions about the exam registrations or the payment of IB fees, please contact IB Coordinator Ms. Crnkovich at:  [email protected] 

Kairos - Classes of 2023 and 2024

Your student is invited to participate in a Trinity Kairos retreat this December. For many students and adult

volunteers around the United States, Kairos, and other retreats of the same model, have been an extraordinary

and transformative experience. Students who attend will have opportunities to reflect upon and pray about their

relationships with God, themselves, and others. They will hear from both peers and adult leaders, reflect on

their own spiritual journeys, connect joyfully with their peers and be invited into prayer both communally and

individually. Click here to read more.

Blazers Need Your Voice!

Invest in Kids, an important scholarship granting program that allows students from disadvantaged homes to attend quality private schools, is slated to sunset on December 31 unless state legislators approve an extension. 

Trinity High School presently has 62 students on the waiting list who qualify for these scholarship dollars to attend Trinity. Unfortunately, this means that girls who want to be Blazers cannot afford to be Blazers. Our community is missing some amazing young women!

Please contact your state representative via THIS FORM and ask them to keep this very important program that allows parents to determine the best education for their daughters, regardless of the cost.


The work of empowering and educating women to be leaders of knowledge, strength and faith is predicated upon regular and consistent student attendance and we are grateful for your partnership with regards to this priority.  Please read the following carefully as there are important updates to the Attendance Policies for the 2023-2024 School Year.
