Thank you for your interest in Trinity. You may still apply for Grades 1-4, though at this time we are no longer processing applications. We will assess our enrollment needs and monitor attrition for the remainder of the winter and into this spring. Often news of families departing comes to us past contract deadlines. If we learn of space and are able to move forward with your child’s application, we will be in touch.
Step 1: Applications:
The Grades 1 through 4 application for the 2020-2021 school year can be found here
Step 2: Email Confirmation:
After you apply, you will receive an email acknowledging receipt of your application. Please read all documents posted in your SchoolAdmin parent portal. These documents contain important information about the process and events. They are also posted here
in the Application Downloads box.
Step 3: ERB Testing, Grade 1: We do not require any standardized testing given by the Educational Records Bureau.
ERB Testing, Grades 2-4:
We do require ERB testing (the ISEE Primary). Please arrange testing at the Educational Records Bureau. Make certain you have listed Trinity on your list of schools or we will not receive scores. Visit ERB’s website
to learn more and register, or call ERB directly at 212-672-9800.
Step 4: Visits:
We will only schedule interviews and tours if we determine we have space. If we have attrition and determine we can meet applicants for grades 1-4, we typically do so in January and February. We also require an on-campus half day classroom visit. (For more information about visits click here
Step 5: School Report:
Give the “Permission to Release Records” form
to your child’s current school. This enables the school to send us your child’s report this winter. Please do not return this form to Trinity
. (You may wait to submit this form to your current school until we know about space.)
Teacher recommendation forms and writing samples are also required for certain grades - details below.
Step 6: File Completion: All application components should be in our hands by early to mid-January. The “To Do” checklist section of your SchoolAdmin account will reveal if any items are missing. See below to learn what other items are required.
(Note: Personal letters of recommendation are not required; multiple letters are discouraged.)
