Our average class size is 15 students and each grade has one class. This allows us to give invidualized and focused attention for all our students.
A virtue is an habitual and firm disposition to do the good. Each month, the students in each class learn about a different virtue, discuss what the practice of that virtue can do for them and for those around them, and prepare a presentation for the monthly virtues assembly. This program serves a dual purpose: building Christian character and setting a foundation on which all student discipline is based.
Students attend all-school Mass every week and Holy Days of Obligation, Eucharistic Adoration every week (time spent in the chapel varies and is age-appropriate) and pray Devotions (Angelus every day, Rosary/International Rosary, Divine Mercy chaplet, Stations of the Cross during Lent.) All students of age have Confession available monthly during the school day.
Preparation for all Sacraments, including these generally conferred in 2nd grade, is a joint effort of the Religious Education program at the Parish, the school and the parents.
Beginning in Kindergarten through 4th grade, students have Spanish or French class for 30 minutes on one day of the week. In 5th grade, students choose French or Spanish as their World Language through 8th grade. The world language program at Holy Trinity is focused on giving students language acquisition skills. Research shows that honing these skills helps students succeed not only in the study of any world language but also in the study of the English language, social studies, and science, and it improves scores on all standardized tests.
After four full years of world language instruction, students are generally placed in Level 2 language in high school - often Level 2 Honors. Even those students who choose to change languages in high school excel because of the excellent language acquisition skills that they gain in the World Language program at Holy Trinity.
Students at Holy Trinity take music and art classes as part of the basic curriculum. All students know how to read music and play an instrument by the time they graduate. Holy Trinity’s choral concerts are awe-inspiring and our band is second-to-none. Students can also begin taking extracurricular piano lessons as early as Kindergarten.
Extended Care is available before and/or after school from 7:00-7:40am every morning and 3-6pm each evening. There is a $50 registration fee for the year. Rates are $6/hour with a 1 hour minimum.
Bus service is available for students residing in Community Unit School District 201, north of the railroad tracks.
