Q, WHAT DOES A TYPICAL TRINITY CHRISTIAN FAMILY AND STUDENT LOOK LIKE?

Trinity Christian School focuses on bringing the home, church and school into a partnership for the purpose of training the next generation. Our mission is to graduate students with a firm Biblical Foundation and an Excellent Education. In keeping with that mission, TCS invites the following:

Families who are defined according to the Biblical perspective of marriage; that marriage is between a male and a female.

Families who are growing in their personal Christian walk and are involved in a local Bible-believing church. Trinity Christian School requires that at least one parent have a personal saving relationship with Jesus Christ.

Students whose academic records demonstrate proven capabilities to succeed at Trinity Christian School. Students records are carefully evaluated during the application process. Students should be performing at or about grade level.

Students whose recommendations show a behavioral history that matches the behavioral expectations of Trinity Christian School. Students who have been expelled should not apply until they have completed a successful year in another school.

Q. DO YOU OFFER AFTER SCHOOL CARE? Yes. Supervision is provided by the Early Education Center and is available until 5:30PM Monday through Friday during the school year. Students can be picked up at the EEC, located in Trinity Central.

You may choose from 2 to 5 days of after school care. The cost varies from $80 to $140 per month, depending on the number of days needed.
