Overview

Overview

Trinity Christian School says

Trinity Christian School exists to provide a Christian education for children of both its sponsoring congregation and the community. We at Trinity Christian School have been devoted to providing children of all faiths with a solid foundation for life since 1851. Todays children are faced with more and more negative influences. We believe that each child is a special gift from God requiring constant care and guidance. We are devoted to teaching your child daily about Jesus Christ, respect for authority, and the morality that is needed to grow up making the right choices. We believe every child should have the privilege of a private education guided by Gods Word. We use Common Core curricula, but modify it to fit our Christian beliefs. Our 3rd - 6th grade students do not participate in New York State Common Core testing. Year after year, our 8th grade graduates are successful in high school, both academically and socially. They leave Trinity Christian confident in their academic abilities and in God's love for them.

Curriculum

While Trinity used the common core curriculum and textbooks as a starting point, the curriculum in all grades is enhanced to reflect our Christian beliefs and the importance of "doing for others". Special events throughout the year, from community service projects, Lutheran Schools Week, Grandparents Day, Literacy Week and much more, foster in our children a love for learning, respect for others, and perseverance. They learn to express themselves through the spoken and written word, technology, music and art. "Hands-on" science, and currrent events and social studies, round out our comprehensive Kindergarten through 8th grade curriculum. Our full day preschool prepares children for Kindergarten in all areas of development.
