Trinity is a special place to work and go to school. Founded in 2001, it is the fastest growing classical, Christian school in the country. Trinity’s special education program is one aspect that sets it apart from other classical, Christian schools. Committed to serving a wide range of educational needs, Trinity offers a spectrum of special education services designed to challenge and support students in order to help them reach their God-given potential. Trinity offers educational support, based on student need, both in the general education and Imago Dei School classrooms. Early intervention, educational therapy, academic remediation classes, The Imago Dei School K-12 special day classes, and 18-22 Transitional program are some of the ways in which Trinity supports students with special educational needs. Faculty and staff are inspired by the unique blend of classical, Christian education and special education support. Additionally, faculty and staff are encouraged through regular worship and prayer and a culture of lifelong learning that is fostered through faculty “Inspiration Days” (commonly known as in-service days).
