At Trinity, we know that there is a whole world outside of the classroom. We offer activities, clubs, organizations, and opportunities to get involved in the school community, meet a lot of people, and have fun! Whether you are interested in running your heart out with Girls on the Run, diving deep into force and friction in our Engineering Club, or making beautiful music in our Jazz Ensemble, there is a club for you!
A number of after-school clubs and activities are available for Lower School students this year. Some of these clubs are not run by Trinity School, but they are held on the Trinity campus. For more information, click on the links below.
Trinity Children’s Chorus
Trinity Recorder Club
Open to students in grades 1–5 and age appropriate for 5 to 10 year olds. Martial arts classes meet on Mondays from 2:30–3:30 p.m. A demo class, open to all, is held prior to the start of each new semester.
The Engineering Resource Club provides opportunities for Trinity’s Middle School students to investigate various branches of engineering in an organized, hands-on, and project-oriented environment. Broadly speaking, this semester students will explore some of the basic principles of mechanical, structural, and electrical engineering. Using the “World in Motion” project produced by the Society of Automotive Engineers, students will first learn about force and friction, simple machines, levers and gears, torque, and design by building a motorized toy car and competing to meet a number of performance challenges. Next, by building toothpick bridges, students will learn about compression, tension, torsion, and other principles of structural engineering. In the third unit, students will use Arduino microprocessors, Raspberry Pi micro-computers, or other tools to explore the intersection between electrical engineering and computer science. While the goal of the class is to expose students to the field of engineering generally, students will be encouraged to dive more deeply into areas that they find most exciting and engaging.
An excellent educational experience goes beyond a school’s core academic program.
Elective courses, clubs, and cocurriculars help students discover new passions and talents, deepen friendships, and hone skills. At Trinity, students elected to Honor Council think deeply about ethics, justice, and grace. Yearbook editors learn to lead, design, collaborate, and to work strategically within a budget. Student Council representatives learn problem-solving skills as they deepen a sense of community. Members of music ensembles experience the pleasure of creating beautiful sounds through practice and attention to detail, while athletes learn the rewards of execution, discipline, and teamwork.
Upper Schoolers can join teams that compete against other schools in the National Forensics League, FIRST Robotics, and national math and science organizations. They can edit the literary magazine Pickett Road or participate in various drama productions. They can also enroll in service-learning classes and a number of junior/senior electives in math, science, the humanities, and the arts.
