We must have received your completed application form before an appointment can be scheduled. There is no absolute deadline for submitting the application form, but we have a limited number of appointments. Once those slots are filled, you will not be able to have an interview or complete an application for admission.
All of our appointments in September, October, and November are allocated to families who apply early.
Additional interviews in December and January will be scheduled in an effort to balance our applicant pool – assuring that equal numbers of boys and girls interview for our school, that we have a good representation of students from NYC (and other) independent, public, and parochial schools, and from a wide variety of schools within those groups. After we receive your application, we will contact you about an appointment. If we are not able to interview you for admission, we will refund your application fee after the admissions season.
We would like to receive two references. Ask a fall 2020 teacher of English, history, math, or science to fill out the reference form. Please also ask a fall 2019 teacher of English, history, math, or science to fill out the reference form.
After you apply, you may make a request for an academic reference be submitted online, or a reference may be submitted directly by a teacher to email@example.com. We want to receive the fall 2020 reference at the end of your child's first fall term.
If you would like to submit more than the two requested references, you may do so. A teacher of any subject may submit an additional academic recommendation.
We will be happy to receive an optional parents’ statement about the applicant, if you would like to write one.
If you would like to submit a statement, please tell us anything that will help the committee to know your child. You may wish to discuss why you think Trinity School is a good match for your child, your child's interests and accomplishments, and/or your child's experiences in school to date.
