Academic Screening and Student/Essay Visit
All incoming students will be given an academic screening in order to help us understand their current skill level. After submitting a request for a screening, the Trinity Admissions Office will need to confirm your appointment.
Transitional Kindergarten: The Transitional Kindergarten (TK) program at Trinity is a wonderful opportunity for children who need another year to develop physically, socially or academically prior to entering Kindergarten. To enter TK your child should be on track to enter Trinity’s Kindergarten program in the Fall of 2016, and must be at least 4 years, 9 months old when they enter TK. Your child’s screening must be conducted after they turn four years old.
Kindergarten Admissions: To enter kindergarten, children must be five years of age on or before September 1st to be eligible for admittance in August of that year. All students entering kindergarten will be screened by a Trinity faculty member to ascertain their readiness for the kindergarten program.

First through Twelfth Grade Admissions: All students entering the first grade must be six years of age on or before September 1st or have successfully completed a year of kindergarten.
