Catholic Schools: Learn. Serve. Lead. Succeed.

National Appreciation Day for Catholic Schools is a day of nationwide support for Catholic schools like Trinity. There are over 6,400 Catholic elementary and secondary schools in the United States, educating nearly 1.9 million children and teenagers.  Catholic schools save the government and tax payers of this nation $20 billion dollars a year, but quality education and the instilment of values are the main reasons for the national recognition and celebration. Trinity is one piece of this big legacy of Catholic education. Today, let’s show our gratitude for the blessings of being in a Catholic school. Trinity High School: We learn. Serve. Lead. Succeed.

Freshmen, sophomores and juniors:

  • Would you like to have your writing and photography published online?


  • Would you like a chance to earn a $10,000 Trinity scholarship for your senior year?


  • When you select classes for next year, sign up for Photography and Online Journalism (E501) or Independent Photojournalism (A361)! Share your talents with the world!
