Mr. Mike Zavada
Middle/Upper School Principal
Welcome to a snapshot of what is happening at Trinity in the Middle School. This is just a snapshot because all of our students are growing on an ever-changing continuum toward the life prepared for them in God's kingdom. Paul writes in Ephesians 2:10 that each of us is "God's masterwork created in Christ Jesus to do great works which He has prepared in advance for us." At Trinity, we take this to heart. This leads us to love, challenge and nurture each of our students on their path.
At Trinity, you will also see a complex blend of learning. Since each student is created to do different great works in Christ, how they learn best can be very different. With our expert faculty and our top notch facilities, Trinity students are exposed to a variety of learning opportunities.
Starting in the 6th grade, our students participate in the 1 to 1 computing program established in 2010. These 6th graders join a program that has been recognized as one of only 86 schools to be marked as an "Apple Distinguished School." But, this is just one phase of how we are "challenging minds and changing lives" at Trinity.
From the study of a classical language like Latin to the "flipped classroom" in Math our middle school students are prepared to learn and contribute in the 21st Century. Likewise, Trinity Middle School students can engage in a robust selection of activities from highly competitive athletics in the AHSAA to the highly decorated marching band program to academic teams like forensics, Envirobowl, and foreign language honor societies.
When considering Trinity and the potential for your child it is important to ask one question, "do we have a growth mindset?" If you want your child to be both loved and challenged in a manner that prepares them not just for the rigors of college, but for a life of learning according to God's plan, Trinity is the place to do it.
