What is Trinitas planning for 2020-2021?
Even though there may be more uncertainty in your life now than ever before, Trinitas Classical School is prepared to make your family’s educational experience as predictable as possible.
Trinitas is prepared to provide a flexible learning environment for 2020-21 so that students may continue to receive an academically challenging and joyful Christian, classical education.
We are ready for in-person instruction, remote instruction, or a combination of the two, as circumstances require.
Faculty and staff are excited and prepared to welcome students back to campus for classes and community events in the 2020-2021 academic year. We are planning to begin classes on campus the Tuesday after Labor Day and to follow our regular calendar for the school year. At the same time, we are also prepared to begin with remote (online) instruction and for a combination of in-person and remote instruction as needed throughout the school year.
Since the switch to remote instruction in March of 2020, faculty and staff have continued to refine and revise instruction so that they can bring newly acquired best practices forward into the coming academic year. Although we do not know what type or length of disruption, if any, will result from COVID-19 spread in the next year, we have taken a proactive posture so that teachers and students will be able to pursue truth, goodness, and beauty from a place of rest and calm.
As a classical school, we certainly prefer in-person, discussion-based learning and our hands-on approach to science. Circumstances beyond our control required us to expand what that looks like and to shift from low-tech to high-tech. Our focus continues to be the true and the good and the beautiful and what is best for our students and families, for their health and for a robust Christian and classical education, that they may lead lives well-lived. That commitment has not changed.
Trinitas is also prepared to respond to the changing financial need of its families and to accommodate for extended individual absences if the need for self-quarantining arises.

Our Commitment to You
Trinitas is committed to a Christian, classical education that involves the discussion of ideas. We want students in the classroom, but we realize that it may be necessary to adjust instruction based on the local public health situation so that we can keep our students, our families, and our local community safe. In case we need to pivot between in-person and remote instruction at any point during the coming year, we are preparing well in advance so that your child’s educational experience is as delightful and predictable as possible.
