She founded Trinity Prep in 2008 after asking God to guide her in creating an educational solution for her youngest son that would maintain his home-centered education but afford him group learning opportunities with other students and skilled teachers. The result was Trinity Prep, the first College-Style School®, offering a core academic program for students K-12. Leslie homeschooled her three children for 15 years. Her youngest son was part of Trinity Prep’s first graduating class of May 2014, but Leslie continues to serve Trinity Prep as School Director.
