As of September 9, 2021

Why Rise?

Trinity Academy’s authentic Christ-like culture gives rise to lives that glorify God. Our distinctive classical program fosters intellectual and spiritual growth, elevating truth and wisdom as we strengthen today and transform tomorrow. The new building is designed with purpose to further our mission to equip students to live with wisdom, excellence, and purpose in the modern world.

Why Now?

The new academic building meets urgent needs in our growing school (25% increase since 2014), advances our inspirational learning environment, and reflects the beauty of God’s grace in our community. We encourage you to envision Trinity’s future and prayerfully consider your financial contribution to the Trinity Rise campaign.

THE VISION

Designed for Purpose.
Built for Versatility.

Our Upper School is growing, and as more families discover the Trinity Difference, we need more space. The 24 new classrooms and the additional collaboration spaces accommodate our planned growth from approximately 200 students in 16 modular unit classrooms today, to 300 Middle and High School students over the next 5-7 years.

Classroom Dialogue

Eighteen classrooms and two specially designed collaboration spaces are light-filled environments for instruction in core academic areas such as humanities and math. The collaboration spaces in particular are flexible enough to accommodate small-group dialogue, authentic conversations among students and their faculty mentors, and tutorials in every subject area.

science-labs

Science Labs

Four fully equipped science classrooms enhance our students’ practical understanding of science and applied technology. Bolstering science education not only fulfills part of our strategic plan, but also further strengthens our academic offerings in chemistry, physics, and biology. Imagine what our already outstanding faculty can do with state-of-the-art laboratory facilities!

Faculty Development

The faculty room gives faculty the space to collaborate and plan for instruction in the pursuit of truth, goodness, and beauty. Our collaboration spaces will also allow faculty and students an opportunity to explore the foundations of truth in visually, inspiring surroundings.

Whole-School Use

“The Forum” is a large space for grade-level activities, back-to-school nights, and other functions envisioned by all owners in our community. The space is smaller than the existing Atrium, which will add another versatile option as we grow.

    This beautiful and versatile addition to Founders Hall accommodates students for lunch, Camp Trinity's after-school program, and so much more. It's open air option makes it perfect for community gatherings.

    Consulting firm moss+ross was engaged to help us assess our readiness for a Capital Campaign.

    It was decided that the Upper School Academic Building would be the first construction project in our Campus Master Plan. Plans were worked and reworked and once completed were unanimously approved by Trinity's Board of Directors - effectively launching the quiet phase of our capital campaign.
  • COVID-19 Pandemic

    The worldwide pandemic may have closed the Trinity campus to on-campus learning but our amazing faculty and staff never missed a beat by pivoting to distance learning in just a few days. Our students finished the year strong and we saw record enrollment for the 5th straight year - solidifying our need to build the Upper School Academic building.
  • Trinity Rise Steering Committee Named

    This group of prayerful and faithful leaders are excited about leading our Trinity community to rise to the challenge of raising $5 million dollars and fulfilling the vision God has set before us.

Rise with Us!

This significant moment in the life of Trinity Academy harkens the visionary commitment of our founders more than two decades ago. Today, our community has the opportunity to join those founders in establishing Trinity for the next era of growth and excellence, continuing our commitment to offering an education grounded in the Christian faith and the classical tradition.

Join us in this milestone endeavor. Together, we will not only build a versatile and beautiful academic building, but we will also solidify Trinity’s ability to steward its mission well into the future.

Rise up; this matter is in your hands. We will support you, so take courage and do it.

100% of campaign leadership has made a financial commitment.

“The heart and soul of Trinity Academy is not and will never be a building. But the truth remains…we need this building. It’s not optional, it’s not extra….this isn’t fluff. For many of us this building feels overdue, but I believe it’s God’s perfect timing. Trinity, the time to rise is now!

So may our prayer be that this new building will never compete for Trinity’s heart! Instead may it grow it, may it protect it, and may it reflect it – to every single soul that enters this community of faith and learning.”
