Dates and information about applying for the 2018-2019 academic year will be updated this summer
Step 1: Applications: Applications will be available the morning of Tuesday, September 6, 2016 online. We are no longer accepting applications for Kindergarten – Grade 4.
*If you experience problems with the online application, contact InfoSnap directly at email@example.com
or 866-986-1601, option 2
(Submitting an application simply makes us aware of your interest; we do not contact your current school about your application). Please do not enclose an application fee at this time. If we are able to schedule a school visit, an application fee of $75 is required. If you are applying for Financial Aid, the application fee is waived.
Step 2: Email Confirmation: After you apply, you will receive an email acknowledging receipt of your application. Read all attachments in this confirmation email carefully; they contain important information about the process.
Step 3: ERB Testing, Grade 1: If you are applying for First Grade, we do not require the ECAA or the AABL.
ERB Testing, Grades 2-4:
If you are applying for grades 2-4, we do require ERB test results (the ECAA). 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. ERB’s telephone number is 212-672-9800 and their website is http://www.erblearn.org
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. (For more information about visits please 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.)
Step 6: File Completion: All application components should be in our hands by early to mid-January. We will let you know if we are missing any items from your child’s file. See below to learn what other items are required.
(Note: Personal letters of recommendation are not required; multiple letters are discouraged.
