Doctrinal Commitments
Trinity School is a Christian school, dedicated to a vision of education that is rooted in the Triune God. As an independent school, without institutional ties to any church or denomination, we remain committed to what C.S. Lewis called “mere Christianity”: “no insipid inter-denominational transparency, but something positive, self-consistent, and inexhaustible.” We hold to those truths that have united Christians through the ages, across the boundaries of time, place, race, denomination, and tradition:

  • The only true God, the almighty Creator of all things, existing eternally in three persons—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit—full of love and glory.
  • The unique divine inspiration, entire trustworthiness, and authority of the Bible.
  • The value and dignity of all people: created in God’s image to live in love and holiness, but alienated from God and each other because of our sin and guilt, and justly subject to God’s wrath.
  • Jesus Christ, fully human and fully divine, who lived as a perfect example, who assumed the judgment due sinners by dying in our place, and who was bodily raised from the dead and ascended as Savior and Lord.
  • Justification by God’s grace to all who repent and put their faith in Jesus Christ alone for salvation.
  • The indwelling presence and transforming power of the Holy Spirit, who gives to all believers a new life and new calling to obedient service.
  • The unity of all believers in Jesus Christ, manifest in worshiping and witnessing churches making disciples throughout the world.
  • The victorious reign and future personal return of Jesus Christ, who will judge all people with justice and mercy, giving over the unrepentant to eternal condemnation but receiving the redeemed into eternal life.

Upper School Ancient Civilizations Humanities Teacher (Part-time)

Trinity School may need an additional section of a grade 9 Ancient Civilizations course for the 2017-18 school year and is inviting applications for this possible part-time position. We may know by mid June about this, but it could be mid August. It is possible that other advertised positions could be added to this part-time one to create a full-time position.

Trinity’s Humanities courses provide a fully integrated study of history, English, and the Bible for the freshman (Ancient Civilizations), sophomore (Western Studies), and junior years (American Studies), deep understandings of the interconnectedness of ideas, culture, and events, and a rich engagement as developing writers and thinkers. Primary and secondary historical sources and literature in the form of novels, plays, and poetry form the spine of the program’s study, and these are supplemented by study of music and art from within and beyond the relevant time periods. Humanities classes meet eight periods weekly— twice the amount of time allotted to most other disciplines—and students receive one credit in history and one in English for each Humanities course completed.

The courses’ literature, interwoven with the themes (1) God, Philosophy, and Truth, (2) Government and Politics, (3) Social Structure (4) the Impact of Technology and Science, and (5) Art and Aesthetics, includes a variety of novels, plays, and poetry, helps students interconnect and deepen their understandings of ideas and themes, and often serves as the focus of the courses’ frequent and varied writing assignments. The courses also include the study of grammar and vocabulary. The courses integrate the Bible into the five overarching themes, and students study it as a document written within specific historical contexts so that they can appreciate it as both a sacred text and as a primary source.

Humanities goals include deepened fluency in the interconnectedness of ideas and the events that shape them; a rich understanding of historical cultures and their impact on the present; the continued development of persuasive, compelling prose; the solidification of grammar skills; the continued development of a broad and sophisticated vocabulary; refined abilities to read texts closely and analytically; and deepened skill in critical and creative thinking.

Qualities sought for this position include successful experience as an English or history teacher; rich and broad knowledge of literature, history, and scripture; love for writing; superb writing skills; skill at facilitating seminar-style discussions and interconnected “big questions,” running writing workshops, and using instructional technologies; skill at differentiating learning and assessments; and a delight in teenagers. Substantial study of the humanities at the undergraduate and graduate levels and an active life as a reader and writer are preferred.

Candidates should possess a minimum of a bachelor's degree.
