Recently, Trinity President, Dr. Rob Mullen, Trinity Principal Dr. Dan Zoeller and Trinity Director of Admissions, Mr. James Torra, hosted three Zoom parent informational meetings with families of the Class of 2024, Trinity’s incoming freshman class. The meeting offered valuable information as well as addressing frequently asked questions. Here is the third Zoom meeting!
This is a great time for your son to be joining the Trinity FAMILY! By the time he enters as a freshman we will have recently invested just under $40 million dollars in our St Matthews campus. What he will enjoy is remarkable including technology-filled classrooms, a state-of-the art STEM lab, renovated Library Media and Technology Centers, a new college and career center, new athletic spaces and a new cafeteria. Plus, plans are underway for two new buildings that will make our students high school experience even richer.
In addition, the results our students are achieving in our Block Schedule are record breaking. Recent graduates have set school records for cumulative ACT score, college merit scholarship earnings and the number of AP exams taken. In addition, 13 of our current seniors were recognized by the National Merit Corporation this fall, bringing our total number of National Merit Scholars to 70 over the past five years. Trinity = Results!
When you couple these results with the welcoming, inclusive environment created by our House System you have a winning combination where students quickly find where they belong and find academic success.
Welcome to the Trinity FAMILY!
We have created a special Class of 2024 page to guide you through the admissions process. It is full of important admissions and contact information helping your family make a smooth transition into Trinity.
