2016-17 Annual Campaign
Your gift to the Annual Campaign will help Trinity remain an exceptional Christian institution – an affordable one – for current students and future generations. We have made some recent changes to make the experience of classical Christian education at Trinity an even stronger experience:
- To enhance our English program and further expose students to great literature, all students will participate in a school-wide poetry competition this winter.
Our middle and high school students have long enjoyed an assembly involving praise and worship, prayer, and a spiritual message. This year, we added a similar assembly for Kindergarten through 6th grade. The students and teachers have embraced this time.
- We have enriched our fine arts program by increasing the frequency of music classes in the grammar school. Additionally, Mr. Mahtani has expanded the high school choir experience by creating a select choir. Both choirs will not only go out into the Pittsburgh community to share their talents, but they are also planning a trip to Chicago to perform and take in a musical.
- Service has been an important component of a Trinity education for many years. The Work-A-Thon is held every spring. Last year, Trinity students volunteered 1,578 hours on this one day at local charities and community organizations. This year, the school as a whole is seeking to expand our service to others throughout the school year. The drama team took the fall production of Charlotte’s Web on the road to local preschools; Student Council led an effort to rake leaves at a small church in Wilkinsburg; and once again a few of our grammar classes will visit residents at a local retirement home. These are a sample of the service projects planned this year.
- Not every family can afford to pay full tuition at Trinity. For the 2015-16 school year, we offered financial support to 32% of our students. We continue to seek ways to make classical Christian education affordable for as many families as possible.
We realize that our families sacrifice to pay tuition. However, the kinds of changes mentioned above can only carry on with additional support of our community. Please pray and consider how you may help us to continue Trinity’s legacy of educating the whole child; the child who will grow up well-educated and impact his family, his church, and his community for Christ.
