If I could give this school less than 1 star I would. The "principal" Bruce is not really the principal. He is who we interviewed with and he made us all kinds of promises as to the environment that my daughter would be in at Trinity but it's really his son Doug who is the sole owner and "principal" of the school. We decided to pull our daughter out after the 1st semester and of course did not get our money back for the 2nd semester which we'd already paid. We know of another family who removed their son after the first two weeks. AWFUL!!!

We love this small private high school which features small class sizes extremely caring teachers and staff and a interesting and often quirky student body. What most impresses me is the demonstrated desire by the staff to constantly learn and grow as teachers. Every summer the teachers participate in staff development around a particular need they see in their students. During the school year this pays off for students and their families as the school implements new ideas based on their research and--this is so important--their students needs. In the three years we've had a students there we've seen her develop academically emotionally and socially. Now we have a second child at the school. Financially this is not easy for us--but the difference it makes for our kids is worth every penny!
We are so grateful (and relieved!) to have found a school that our son wants to go to every day and where he feels successful. The teachers make an effort to teach the material in a way that engages the students and considers their individual learning styles and interests without all the unnecessary pressure and load of homework at most schools today.
We just moved to this school in December and my child has done so much better here than from her Myers Park HS experience. She has made new friends fast and I have heard no more complaints from her about school. No more tears! I think she actually enjoys school now. The teachers and staff encourage her daily and I think it's working. I highly recommend this school. She's on the honor roll now! I love the after-school tudoring 3 days a week and the opportunities they give her to make up or redo her work to better her grades. Money well spent!
I have watched Trinity grow over the past several years and I have seen nothing but outstanding performance from both the staff and the students. I have seen young adults with no hope for an academic future find a place at Trinity that both accepts and nurtures their individual learning style. The principal has a clam kind heart and his vision is to see young adults succeed. I highly recommend sending any child to this school and know that they will be given the chance to achieve wonderful things.
My son attended Trinity after being expelled from his previous school. Trinity Prep provided the supportive and structured environment we didn't know how to give him at home. We've become better parents and better Christians thanks to Trinity. They went out of their way to get to know him as an individual and to address his academic needs personally. Before he went to Trinity our son didn't want to go to college now he's on the Dean's List.
Trinity is a wonderful school with small classes and knowledgable attentive teachers. The administration keeps parents informed and encourages us to be involved. The principal is a gem of a man who is loved by his students and is a firm but fair disciplinarian. Trinity has been like family to us where my son has been able to flourish and grow not only academically but spiritually and personally as well.
Trintiy provides a warm individualized safe student environment with an emphasis on Christian. Classes are taught despite the subject from a Christian perspective providing insight into values as well as the scholastic material. All students participate in group activities and projects giving them a sense of belonging and bringing out their particular qualities. This environment builds selfesteem and encourages students to do their best. Material is presented so that if it is not immediately mastered it is discovered and addressed. Trinity has been a blessing to our Daughter. We are now looking forward to college.
