The Trinity Fund is our school’s primary fundraising effort, and we ask each family to participate in this effort annually. The goal for this year’s Trinity Fund is $425,000. Gifts to the Trinity Fund help sustain growth while supporting the school's highest priorities and most immediate needs. These needs range from investing in professional development for faculty to upgrading playground equipment for the Lower School and more.

Continue to develop and retain the very best teachers and role models for our students
Strengthen our after-school programs and grow our enrollment
Construct a new Arts and Engineering Building to support robust STEM and arts programs
