Trinity School in Atlanta, GA, was established in 1951, and everything we do is designed to help students ages three through sixth grade flourish. From the walking trails in Discovery Woods, and natural light and flexible learning spaces in each classroom to the cutting-edge media center, and design and makerspace known as the iHub, the School’s 43-acre campus was made for exploration and inquiry. In 1963, Trinity became the first racially integrated private school in Georgia. As an inclusive community, we celebrate diversity, multiculturalism, and the value of every individual.
Trinity is known for rigorous academics, an amazing arts program, state-of-the-art indoor and outdoor learning spaces, and a community that cares like no other. Our students have opportunities to discover and explore. Their innate intellectual curiosity is sparked in an academically challenging environment. They are engaged and, most importantly, happy. Children don’t just grow at Trinity – they flourish here, later on in secondary school, and for the rest of their lives.
Trinity’s faculty and staff cherish the magic of childhood, encouraging students to try things they never imagined and cheering mightily when they succeed. Trinity’s unique approach to early childhood and elementary education allows our students to savor their childhood while also acquiring a deep academic foundation and developing responsibility, leadership, and a strong sense of self. And while our academic program is challenging, it is only one measure of success at Trinity. In addition to proficiency in essential knowledge and skills, Trinity students are exposed to a wide variety of subjects and experiences, such as engineering and design, music, art, world languages, physical education, and community service. In every class, at every grade level, Trinity students learn to think deeply, explore freely, and express themselves with confidence.
