Lower School’s Capstone • Sixth Grade
Trinity School’s sixth grade is unique—a program designed specifically to support and challenge sixth graders as they adjust to the initial stages of adolescence. Sixth grade functions as a hinge, connecting Lower School to Middle School to ensure a smooth transition, and it features a special space, pace, and curriculum.
Amy Chancey, Interim Director of Lower School, observes of Trinity’s sixth grade, “Our sixth grade program prepares students well for the next level. This is an important period of time for these youngsters, and we are pleased that we’ve been able to take the best of both worlds—childhood and adolescence—and create a sixth grade that addresses the emotional and social challenges of our young people as learning and academic expectations continue to move forward. We are thrilled to have sixth grade as the crown for Trinity’s Lower School.”
Sixth Grade Athletics
Sixth Grade is the first year students at Trinity are able to participate in organized athletic competition. Guided by the Trinity School Middle School athletics program, three full seasons of interscholastic sports is offered for students in grades 6–8. The program focuses on development of character (faith), love of the game, and developing fundamental skills. The Middle School sports model puts emphasis on skill development for the first portion of the season and teams selection is based on training sessions and development of athletic goals.
