MIDDLE SCHOOLTransformative Middle Years

Middle School at Trinity is a transformative period marked by growth and self-discovery. Our division's mission is to lovingly shepherd students through these crucial adolescent years, anchoring them in a faithful and God-centered environment guided by the wisdom of 2 Peter 3:1 which urges us to “grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.”

With the guidance of our dedicated educators and through a classical education model, Trinity's Middle School students not only uncover their optimal learning styles but also deepen their trust in God's grace and His purpose in shaping their identities. Amidst the ever-changing landscape of middle school life where interests shift, friendships evolve, and self-identity is a persistent question, our students embark on a journey to answer the fundamental question, “Who am I?”

The students start their time in middle school as children and they leave as full-fledged teenagers. We embrace the opportunity to partner with families and shepherd their children in this crucial phase of development.

Our aim for Middle Schoolers is to deepen their Christian faith and incorporate it into their identity and actions. In this sense, we view discipline as an opportunity for spiritual reflection. Our goal is to nurture spiritual growth through regular corporate worship, daily homeroom devotions, and yearlong Scripture study.
