Trinity Academy is the sole catholic elementary school in the Archdiocese of Newark serving the communities of West Essex New Jersey. Catholic Christian values are infused in the curriculum and students learn skills that are necessary for success in secondary education and beyond. A lifelong desire to learn is cultivated. A supportive learning environment facilitates the strengthening of aptitudes and the availability of remediation when necessary. Increased standardized test scores, daily classroom observations, and the definitive growth of the whole child from the Pre-kindergarten classroom through Grade Eight are evidence of the school’s success. Teamwork, self-discipline, personal responsibility, genuine respect for self and the desire to help others are woven together to create the unique tapestry that is the Trinity Academy Family.

It is the people who truly make this such a vibrant, active community. Students have an energy that brings learning to life as they pursue challenging academic interests and an array of extracurricular activities. The faculty strives to create a safe, positive atmosphere where all students are welcomed and encouraged to learn and grow. Parents are essential to the educational and cultural foundation of the school. The families are united by their love for God, the children, and for the school that provides a life affirming environment. It is impossible not to feel the joy that emanates from this love and sense of belonging. We are proud to provide for our students the means for growth in Christian principles and the pursuit of academic excellence.
