Events: We do not have any events or open houses for families applying to Grades 1-4. If we are able to process your child’s application, we will then schedule visits to the school. In the meantime we encourage you to peruse our website to learn more about our community and curriculum.
Interview and Tours: Most new students enter Trinity in Kindergarten and spaces for grades 1-4 are available only through attrition. Still, we would be pleased to consider your child’s application for any openings that may occur and encourage you to begin the process by following the instructions below. If space becomes available we will call you to arrange school visits (we typically meet families in January or February). We will not interview a child until we learn about a space, nor can we guarantee visits to all that apply.
If a visit is possible, your family will come for a school tour. After the tour, parents will meet with an Admissions Officer while your child will work with another member of the Admissions team. A half day on-campus classroom visit will also be required on a separate day.
Teacher Recommendation, Grades 2-4:
For grades two and three, ask a current teacher of the applicant to fill out our Teacher Recommendation form
. For grade four, ask two teachers.
These should come directly from the school or teacher. You may provide the teacher the form electronically via your SchoolAdmin parent portal or print and give it to them directly with instructions on how to return it to us (by mail, scanned and emailed or faxed).
Writing Sample, Grades 3-4: A writing sample is required for third and fourth grade applicants. Ideally, we would like a copy of your child’s writing from school with teacher comments on it (i.e. an essay, book report, poem, etc.). An explanation of what the assignment was and when it was done should also be included. This can be sent from the school or come directly from you.
