Classical Curriculum Philosophy
Developing the Mind
Through instruction based on the Trivium, Holy Trinity Classical Christian School develops the minds of students through various academic disciplines:
- Classical Studies/History
- English & Literature
- Fine Arts
The use of quality reading materials an essential part of the rigorous curriculum offered at Holy Trinity Classical Christian School. For additional lists and information, see our School Profile on under Upper School for more information.
Cultivating the Soul
As part of our mission, Holy Trinity Classical Christian School teaches students about Jesus Christ in many ways: Christian Studies/Bible, Chapel, and Character.
Worship: Grammar and Upper School students at Holy Trinity Classical Christian School start their school day off by attending chapel. Not only is it a time for parents and students alike to learn about His Word through Bible stories, it’s an opportunity to worship together as a community of believers through songs and question and answer periods.
Character: The goal of a classical education is to form the mind and character of the student so that he will use the power of knowledge for good ends. Student behavior, attitude, and physical disposition contributes positively to the classroom environment and Holy Trinity’s expectation of excellence in character.
- VIRTUE - 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.
- DAILY 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, Amen.
- CODE OF CONDUCT - 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.
Nourishing the Body
In addition to extra-curricular Athletics, Holy Trinity Classical Christian School nourishes the whole student body as part of our academic curriculum: Physical Education, Recess, and through events like Upper School Cup (grades 7-12) and Field Day (grades K-6).
At Holy Trinity Classical Christian School, nourishing the body works in tandem with developing the mind and cultivating the soul of all students.
