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 Grammar School levels, 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 2 or 3 classes 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 provider.

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 25.

Part-Time Enrollments:

Middle and High School students may be able to enroll in two or three courses, by special permission of the School Director.  Part-time enrollments are only permitted when space allows.  Per course cost is $1,000.00 ($950 prior to May 1).  Study Hall tuition is $450.00.  Family Registration fee, curricula costs, Trinity Prep shirt costs are incurred.

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.
