Trinity Christian School is a ministry of Trinity Lutheran Church, dedicated to providing a Christ-centered, Bible-based environment. The School is committed to academic excellence while instilling in each child the necessary moral, ethical, and spiritual values necessary for Christian growth.

The educational philosophy of Trinity Christian School is based on our Statement of Faith, below. All truth is God’s truth. God created all things and sustains all things, consequently true knowledge can only be understood when one understands it in the context of knowing its Creator.

The school’s aim socially is to provide a Christian world view from which will come a balanced personality and proper understanding and acceptance of a person’s role in life at home, at work, at play, and at worship.

Energies are focused on the promotion of high academic standards while helping students achieve skills in creative and critical thinking, using the best integrated curriculum available.

Trinity’s responsibility encompasses the whole student: his spiritual, mental, intellectual, physical, and emotional growth.

We believe the Bible is the only inspired, infallible, authoritative, inerrant Word of God (2 Timothy 3:15; 2 Peter 1:21).

We believe there is only one God, eternally existent in three persons – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Genesis 1:1; Matthew 28:19; John 10:30).

We believe in the deity of Christ (John 10:33); His virgin birth (Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:23 Luke 1:35); His sinless life (Hebrews 4:15; 7:26); His miracles (John 2:11); His vicarious and atoning death (1 Corinthians 15:3; Ephesians 1:7; Hebrews 2:9); His resurrection (John 11:25; 1 Corinthians 15:4); His ascension to the right hand of the Father (Mark 16:19); His personal return in power and glory (Acts 1:11; and Revelation 19:11).

We believe that man is born with a sin nature, so spiritual regeneration for salvation is a necessity. Man is justified by faith in the shed blood of Christ. Salvation comes only by God’s grace and through faith (James 3:1-19; 5:24; Romans 3:23; 5:8-9; Ephesians 2:9-10; Titus 3:5).

We believe in the resurrection of the saved to eternal life, and the lost to damnation (John 5:28-29).

We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ (Romans 8:9; 1 Corinthians 12:12-13; Galatians 3:26-28).

We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life (Romans 8:13-14; 1 Corinthians 3:1A; 6:19-20; Ephesians 4:30; 5:1B).

“That I may know Him, and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being made conformable unto his death.” Philippians 3:10

“Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be filled.” Matthew 5:6

“All things are lawful for me, but all things are not expedient: All things are lawful to me, but all things edify not. Let no man seek his own, but every man another’s [good].” 1 Corinthians 10:23-24

“That our sons may be as plants grown up in their youth; that our daughters may be as cornerstones, polished after the similitude of a palace.” Psalm 144:1

There are many ways in which a parent can be involved in their child’s education. The most important thing though as parent, is that you get involved. Parents’ lives have changed over the years, but our role to shape and influence our children remains the same. So no matter what the challenges you may have as a parent, it’s important for you to take the opportunity to get involved with your child’s school to the best of your ability.

It is our hope that every parent at Trinity Christian School will become involved to the best of their ability in all or most of the following:

  • Pray regularly and fervently for the school, faculty, students, and administration.
  • Cooperate fully with the educational program of the school.
  • Attend meetings and parent functions regularly.
  • Whenever possible volunteer for school activities. There are several opportunities calendared throughout the year in which parents can make plans to attend their child’s activities.
  • Pay your financial obligations on time.
  • Support the school financially beyond tuition and fees. (i.e. Fundraisers)
  • Seek the advancement of the school in every area- spiritually, academically, and physically.
  • Cooperate fully with school policies and disciplinary actions.
  • Recommend the school to other families.
  • Provide a healthy, happy home environment for your child.
  • See that your child develops good habits with their homework, get them to bed early, and limit their time on social media.
  • Assume the responsibility for good attendance and arriving to school on time.
  • If you become unhappy or dissatisfied with the school in any way, seek to resolve the issue.

The Association of Christian Schools, International provides a host of benefits for Christian schools. Their legal assistance keeps us from legal red tape and restrictions. They provide a standard for accreditation programs.

As a member school, we will benefit from yearly teachers and administrators conferences, printed materials, testing materials, in-service training tapes, speakers, as well as speech, music, science fair and athletic competition programs. Part of the registration fee covers membership in ACSI.

In accord with the requirements set forth in IRB No. 1975-49, dated December 8, 1975, Trinity Christian School therefore announces the following policy:

Trinity Christian School 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 and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, athletic, and other school–administered programs.

Trinity Christian School wishes to further advise you that concurrence with the Policy of Non-Discrimination is not grounded in humanist premises, but rather upon a theological basis as presented in the Bible. Our doors are open to peoples of all races, color, national and ethnic origins because the love of God, as manifest in the ministry of redemption through Jesus Christ, is intended for all people who receive it.

Toward this end, Trinity Christian School is pleased to serve families in the City of Norwalk and its surrounding area.
