Activities and Clubs
There are many co-curricular options at Trinity, and students are encouraged to join a manageable number of these for enjoyment, to discover new interests, and to refine talents. This list of offerings grows continually.
The Upper School launches the new year with class trips. In almost all cases, advisors and their advisees participate on the same trip. Each trip includes learning that goes far beyond classrooms and textbooks, and they also help establish and deepen student-student and student-advisor relationships and strengthen the class’ distinctive identity.
9th, 10th, and 11th graders depart early morning of the first day of school for their destinations in the mountains or at the coast and spend two nights and three days in experiential learning. Seniors spend three nights and four days together in the mountains for their Senior Retreat.
This program involves all upper schoolers in a week and a half of extended block study of topics outside the standard curriculum—a time to try something new or go into further depth in a special area of interest such as ballroom dancing, volunteer service in Durham, the history of the American civil rights movement, or sports analytics.
The Upper School hosts an all-night lock-in every January on a Friday night. Faculty and students alike show up for a night of fun--from huge inflatables to human foosball, midnight sundaes, 2 a.m. capture the flag, and If you're really bold, you'll accept the "The Director's Challenge" and do your best to stay awake through the 5 a.m. movie.
