Institutional Equity

Trinity School actively seeks a student body that is diverse ethnically, culturally, and economically. More than 85 local congregations of various denominations are represented in the student body at Trinity School. Trinity does not require parents to be professing Christians. We welcome families and students from other faiths, as well as those from nonreligious backgrounds. All parents commit themselves to support the educational mission of the school.

From its start in 1995, Trinity has aspired to be a richly diverse school that welcomes all who value a high-quality education within a thoughtful, ecumenical framework of Christian faith and conviction. Today, we provide for our students a strong college-preparatory program with robust elective and co-curricular offerings, including visual art, music, drama, robotics, clubs, and athletics.

Our community of learners is growing, and we wish to do all we can to ensure that Trinity’s student body reflects the diversity of the greater Durham and Chapel Hill area. We are pleased to offer the Community Scholarships for Students of Color for applicants to grades 6–11 who have strong academic records, love to learn and to be fully involved in their school’s community, and demonstrate high levels of integrity, character, and leadership.

Each year, scholarship winners will receive up to $2,500 toward tuition. Scholarship awards are renewable each year until graduation, provided that the student remains in good academic and personal standing. In addition to this merit scholarship, Trinity offers flexible tuition for families with demonstrated need, and applicants are strongly encouraged to apply for this program, as this may supplement the scholarship award.

If you are interested in applying for this award, your school guidance counselor or principal should submit the Community Scholarship Nomination Form. Please contact the Trinity School Admission Office at 919-402-8262 if you have any questions.

Angel hails from Texas, where she attended a school with some of the same challenges and opportunities around diversity that Trinity School faces, and she knows what it is like to navigate as a student of color in such a place. She graduated from Duke, where she played on the Varsity Women's Lacrosse team, and also earned a master’s degree in biomedical sciences at Duke, where she was active in the work of the Multicultural Resource Center. Her work as a Bible study leader with Duke athletes, in youth ministry, and in ministry at the CityWell church has given her a broad exposure to working with diverse teams of people.Angel is an alumna of the Racial Equity Institute (REI), which has prepared her for conversations and work in the areas of race, power, and equity.
