Another Summer of Great Campus Improvements

As soon as the last exam is taken in May we always jump into a long list of campus improvement projects. This is how we are able to present a modern campus perfectly suited for today’s high-paced learning. We are fortunate in two ways when it comes to our summer campus projects. First, we receive funding from the Trinity High School Foundation and donors to do renewal and replacement work and new construction. Second, Mr. Bill Hogg H’15, Head of our Operations Department, brings his years of construction and facility management experience to our projects. The result of each summer’s flurry of activity is a campus that is attractive, efficient and safe.
