Expanded Mission Statement

Mission
The mission of Trinity School is to educate students in transitional kindergarten to grade twelve within the framework of Christian faith and conviction—teaching the classical tools of learning; providing a rich yet unhurried curriculum; and communicating truth, goodness, and beauty.

At Trinity School we seek to create a community in which there is delight in learning and an atmosphere that encourages the sort of intellectual, moral, and aesthetic development that is fitting for those who bear the image of God. We want to challenge our students in a way that stimulates their natural curiosity, guiding their discovery toward personal, intellectual, and spiritual growth.

We offer a more detailed explanation of some of the distinctives of our school here.

Education is primarily the responsibility and privilege of parents, and Trinity School seeks to enter into a partnership with our parents toward the goal of an excellent education. Our aim is to support families by bringing our special resources to bear to help them attain their educational and spiritual goals. To this end, we encourage each family to be actively involved in their child's life as a Trinity student, and we look forward to working together to develop this community of learning called Trinity School.

Read Trinity’s Expanded Mission Statement.


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 Science Teacher

Upper School Science Teacher

Trinity's Upper School seeks a science teacher to teach two sections of 9th Grade Physics and a 12th Grade Science Elective (Fall semester: Ecology and Spring semester: Environmental Studies). This position may be a part- or full-time position.

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.
