Education alone is not the solution to the world’s problems.
An education does not necessarily make students good. It can, in fact, make them puffed up and vain.
Every school has a culture which is a reflection of its leadership. Holy Trinity Classical Christian School strives to form the mind and character of the student to follow the example of Jesus Christ, the hero and savior of mankind.
At Holy Trinity Classical Christian School, students start their day with this prayer:
Dearest Lord, teach me to be generous;
teach me to serve You as You deserve;
to give and not to count the cost,
to fight and not to heed the wounds,
to toil and not to seek for rest,
to labor and not to ask for reward
save that of knowing I am doing Your Will.
Through Christ Our Lord,
Teachers and administration recognize that maintaining a well-disciplined classroom is key to learning. We believe that “knowledge without virtue is a dangerous thing,” therefore encouraging virtuous behavior is as important as encouraging excellence in math and grammar.
Students are expected to uphold the Holy Trinity Student Code of Conduct (“Student Code of Conduct”) as follows:
We cheerfully and promptly obey the authority under which we are placed.
We can appeal respectfully and courteously. We do not argue or negotiate.
We love and honor one another.
We give encouragement to each other.
We do not point out the shortcomings of others in order to build up ourselves.
We tell the truth.
We do not disrespect the classroom and the teacher by passing notes or otherwise interrupting.
We do not spread rumors or gossip.
We will not make excuses for our wrong actions but will admit them.
We avoid cliques, clubs, or games that exclude others.
When others are sorry, we forgive them.
When others are sad, we comfort them.
When we have work to do, we do it without complaining.
If we make a mess, we clean it up.
We treat one another with respect and patience.
Student behavior, attitude, and physical disposition contributes positively to the classroom environment and Holy Trinity’s expectation of excellence in character.
