Trinitas Classical School offers families across Grand Rapids, Michigan, and Kent County the opportunity to provide their elementary school aged children a rigorous and joyful classical education within a school committed to historic Christian faith. Our curriculum is designed not only to impart important information and tools that position students to succeed in life, but also to help our students see and care for all of God’s manifold creation through the eyes of Christ.
We prepare students for lives well-lived by engaging them in a classical education that features socratic dialogue and discovery. Classical education is distinguished by conversation around great ideas and the intentional cultivation of virtue. All subjects are approached three ways (Trivium in Latin) according to their own grammar, logic, and rhetoric. Instructional methods are grounded in questions appropriate to the child’s developmental aptitude at any given age.
Our students receive a challenging and joyful education that develops deep, critical thinkers who are self-directed and poised to achieve both academically and emotionally in higher education and in life.
New for 2020-2021:
We plan to offer four or five-day kindergarten options in addition to the current three-day class (Monday/Wednesday/Friday), contingent upon enrollment. Families may choose to add Tuesday and/or Thursday which will include opportunities for learning and discovery beyond the regular classroom curriculum.
