Trinity School at Meadow View: a community of learners!

Trinity School at Meadow View offers a unique educational environment where young men and women cultivate intellectual habits of mind that prepare them for a lifetime of discovering truth, practicing goodness, and creating beauty. In our core curriculum, we give our students signature learning experiences: Socratic seminars on the best of Western literature, application of the MATLAB computing language to advanced math and science problems, intensive training in writing with special focus on the analytic essay, and a wide range of performance opportunities where all our students compose, sing, paint, and act.

Learning -- the engagement of the mind and imagination with reality -- is an essential human activity. We do not intend to introduce them to school or schooling, but to a culture where ideas and the expression of the human spirit matter. At Trinity School, the student is the main agent of his or her own education. Rather than receiving knowledge passively, each student is actively engaged in apprehending concepts and perceiving relationships.

Our community of learners is coed, but our classes are single sex, with no more than twenty students per classroom. This maximizes the ability of the individual student to learn well and to develop good friendships. Ours is also an ecumenical Christian culture marked by daily prayer and a moral order deeply rooted in Scripture and Christian tradition. Our ecumenism is a sign of Christian unity and one vital source of our common mission to serve God and our neighbors.
