About Holy Trinity Catholic School

At Holy Trinity, we believe a Catholic school is the unique setting where the ideal of Christian education can be realized in the everyday living of young people. It is imperative to provide students not only with necessary and successful educational experiences, but also aid in the development of a faith community. We encourage children to become the unique individuals that they are destined to be. 


Our Christian education is intended to make our faith become living and active through the light of instruction. Through religious experiences and educational instruction, our students are enabled to extend their faith from home to school and into society. By offering a nurturing school and community atmosphere of faith, love, and respect, we encourage our students to build sincere and respectful relationships based on the teachings of the Catholic Church.

Our Mission Statement

Holy Trinity Catholic School is committed to

Teaching and modeling Catholic Christian morals and values

Creating a safe, caring, and respectful environment that

Our Philosophy

The philosophy of Holy Trinity endeavors to provide a faith community that fosters spiritual enlightenment, intellectual growth, academic excellence, emotional development, and social adjustment. We believe it is of primary importance to promote high Christian standards and strive to empower students and parents to model Christ's values. We believe parents are the first and foremost educators of their children.
