Whether you are an old friend, or visiting our website for the first time, I know that these pages will help you get to know today’s Trinity High School better.
In order to help, I thought I would share one of the favorite things I’ve ever been asked to do. Before open house one year, I was asked to make remarks that would explain to potential parents what it means to be a Trinity High School Blazer.
After a lot of thought, I realized it’s actually not all that easy to do.
Because Blazers are so many things. They’re fun loving and outgoing - or they are studious and shy. They are artistic - or athletic - or both - or neither. Some are serious, some are silly.
They are writers, dancers, mathletes. future politicians, doctors, nurses, lawyers, teachers, wives and mothers, entrepreneurs and CEOs.
Blazers can be all these things - because at Trinity - each student is recognized as unique.
Its right there in our mission statement.
In a world where social media and pop culture try to tell teenage women how they should act, what they should wear, what music they should like, which celebrities they should admire, and what they should think, feel, and believe, Trinity says, “stop.” Slow down. Who do YOU want to become? Because here, you can be you. We want our Blazers to take their time here to ask questions, make mistakes, and grow into the person that they want to be, that God wants them to be - no matter what others are trying to tell them.
During their time here we will support and challenge our young women to be the very best version of their own unique person. We will challenge them to embrace the words of St. Catherine of Sienna, “Be who God meant you to be, and you will set the world on fire.”
So if you’re interested in an institution that challenges and encourages today’s women to stand up and stand out, not fit it, a place that sends graduates out, ready to set the world on fire, you’ve come to the right place. On behalf of the whole Trinity Community, we’re glad you’re here. You want what’s best for your daughter, and the best IS Trinity!
I look forward to seeing you in the halls on Lathrop and Division
