Available to 6th-12th grade students.  Students attend Learning Lab on either Monday and Wednesday, or Tuesday and Thursday, opposite the days they attend for the Core Program.  Students study independently on campus, but have access to a teacher who can provide support for the student’s independent study.  Students may be enrolled in one or two days per week.
Students take regular breaks, including lunch, throughout their Learning Lab days on campus.

Learning Lab Tuition

  • Two Days a Week

ADDITIONAL EDUCATION SERVICES

For students with learning differences, we provide a “MAP” (Modified Academic Plan) to help the student succeed with appropriate assignments and workload.  Our Education Specialist develops, implements, and monitors the MAP.  Additional tuition applies to these services.

For more information on these services, visit Additional Educational Services page.

ADDITIONAL COSTS

Uniform:  Students are required to wear Trinity Prep uniform T-shirts, polo shirts, and hoodies as part of our dress code.  These range in cost from $14-22 and are purchased from approved vendors.

Credit Card Option

To pay tuition or fees by credit card, parents must enroll in FACTS Tuition Management and link their FACTS account to their chosen credit card rather than a bank account.  Once the FACTS account is established, all Trinity Prep tuition, fees, and one-time costs may be processed via this account.  Please note – choosing the credit card option adds a 2.85% fee to the account balance.

Additional Information about Trinity Prep’s Enrollment Policies

Open Enrollment: 

We do not use intake testing to pre-select the student population for enrollment in Trinity Prep.  We serve a diverse student population which includes typical learners, academically gifted students, students with learning challenges, students on an accelerated path, and students on a modified path.  Our commitment is to make a classical, Christian education available to all students and to equip all students.  Our student body population reflects ‘real world’ variety in talents and strengths.  We conduct an Initial Assessment for new students to provide information to our teachers to better partner with families.  We will partner with any family whose student can participate appropriately in, and benefit from, our classroom environment.

Parent and Student Commitment:

It is important to remember that enrollment in a College-Style School® means the parents SHARE responsibility for the student’s education and have considerable involvement in organizing the student’s schedule, supporting good study habits, providing accountability, monitoring progress and submission of assignments, and generally supporting the student’s efforts, so that our educational goals are met.  Parents who enroll their student(s) in Trinity Prep are required to participate in our Parent Academy, in which we clarify the responsibilities of the parents in this partnership, outline how we support and communicate with parents throughout the school year, and answer any questions.

Level Placement:

Students are not placed by default into their age group.  While that will be appropriate for many students, the actual determinant of the student’s placement is their academic level.  Our Initial Assessment provides information that can help Trinity Prep and parents to determine best grade level. We identify for parents the expected reading and developmental level for students in Elementary Grades, in order to place students correctly.  Lastly, we review curricula with parents and students, to determine whether the student can interact effectively with the curricula for that grade level.

Number of Classes:

High school students have the option of enrolling in 3 classes only, if there are openings after full-time students are enrolled.

Dual Credit:

Trinity Prep facilitates dual credit in several ways: students may take AP and CLEP tests at the end of a course; or, students may take dual credit courses via our online course providers.  For more information, email information@trinityprepkeller.org

Notes

Mid-year enrollments: 

We allow rolling enrollment through January of each school year, if the requested grade level is not full.  Please note that for such a mid-year transfer to be successful, the parent will need to quickly acquire Trinity Prep curricula, and work diligently with the student to catch up to his/her Trinity Prep peers.  Tuition is prorated to the current month.   All fees are due upon enrollment.  The bookkeeper will provide exact tuition amount and payment date.  We do not accept enrollments after January 18.

Non-Discriminatory Enrollment Policy

Trinity Preparatory Academy admits students of any race, color, national, and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, tuition policy, and other school-administered programs.
