Read Trinity’s Expanded Mission Statement.
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.

Apply for a Position at Trinity
Trinity seeks a part-time teacher to teach its Upper School Ancient Civilizations Humanities class. It may be possible to add other advertised positions to this part-time one.
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 six 70-minute 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.
In Trinity’s young but fast-growing Upper School community, camaraderie, collaboration, showing up for student events, enthusiasm for Trinity’s mission, and pitching in for the good of each other and our students are high values. Trinity also values faculty who are involved in school life beyond the classroom and, therefore, applicants who can coach, advise a club, or otherwise enrich our vibrant community.
This position is for the 2018–2019 school year and will begin in August 2018.

Trinity's Upper School seeks a part-time science teacher to teach two sections of 9th Grade Physics and a 12th Grade Science Elective (Fall semester: Ecology and Spring semester: Environmental Studies).
While we prefer that one person teach all of these classes, candidates may apply separately to teach the physics or the Ecology and Environmental Studies classes.
We seek candidates knowledgeable about these areas of science who are excited about the rapidly expanding STEM resources available to educators and using them to engage teenagers; who value Trinity's inquiry-based pedagogies; and who possess knowledge of and interest in instructional technologies to enhance the students’ learning experiences.
Trinity faculty teach within the framework of Christian faith and conviction, and the science faculty are excited to help students appreciate the way science reveals God’s presence in His creation and inspires one to search for greater understanding of its mystery as well as to appreciate the connectedness that is the beauty of His work. Science creates and interprets a language by which the natural world can be explored and understood, and Trinity science faculty teach this language in such a way that it imparts wonder and understanding of the fundamental truth, goodness and beauty that are present and waiting to be discovered in God’s creation. A student’s time spent in the study of science at Trinity fosters the importance of deep knowledge of the subject matter in order to draw valid and well-supported conclusions. In the end, the mission of the science curriculum is to produce graduates who are scientifically literate, and who possess the knowledge necessary to be critical thinkers who can thoughtfully engage in the scientific issues of society. Trinity graduates who pursue a vocation in science are well trained to be true to the rigor of this discipline while at the same time upholding all that is wondrous about God’s creation.
Candidates should possess at minimum a bachelor's degree, preferably in physics or biology, and delight in being with and teaching teenagers and embrace the science department’s mission. Advanced study in this field or engineering is preferred, along with proven experience as a secondary-level teacher. In Trinity's young but fast-growing Upper School community, camaraderie, collaboration, showing up for student events, enthusiasm for Trinity's mission and pitching in for the good of each other and our students are high values. Trinity also values faculty who are involved in school life beyond the classroom and, therefore, applicants who can coach, advise a club, or otherwise enrich our vibrant community.
