“These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.” Deuteronomy 6:6, 7
We seek to promote the Covenantal Christian family. We revere parental authority and the blessing of stewardship to educate the child. We view our involvement as a partnership with parents.
“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.” Matthew 22:37 (emphasis added)
”Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.” Romans 12:2
We believe in education through a Christian worldview which is to say Jesus is the Lord of every area of life. All Truth comes from, belongs to and points toward God and is interrelated. We believe that to foster a love of learning and promote independent thought is to endow students with the means to arrive at, internalize, and apply Truth. Ultimately, we seek to gain a greater understanding of God through a life-long pursuit and passion for Truth and thus bring Him glory.
“So then, you will know them by their fruits.” Matthew 7:20
“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,
gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.” Galatians 5:21-23
A great evidence of the Holy Spirit’s presence in our lives is godly character. In addition to the fruits of the Spirit, integrity and humility are paramount. As we seek to educate the minds of children, we feel it is vitally important to always couple knowledge with humility. We believe in accountability and Biblical discipline within the Body of Christ as a means of cultivating godly character. Although we do not seek to isolate ourselves, I Corinthians 15:33 warns us that bad company corrupts good character and that children should be brought up in an environment where they are encouraged to develop godly character.
Authority of Scripture
“All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.” II Timothy 3:16, 17
We believe that the Bible is the inerrant Word of God and that we are under its authority. We are dedicated to understanding, upholding, and defending scripture and to helping others do the same.
“Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.” Colossians 3:23, 24
We set the bar at excellence and believe that everyone involved in Trinity should strive toward it in all we do. Our promotion of academic rigor and hard work are a result of this value. We believe that although excellence is not always being the best, it is doing the best with what we are given.
“You then, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus. And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable men who will also be qualified to teach others.” II Timothy 1, 2
Leadership is a quality that we want to permeate all facets of Trinity Classical School. From the faculty, to the family, to our relationship with the community, we encourage godly leadership. A godly leader embodies the qualities of faithfulness, self-discipline and direction, personal convictions and a strong moral compass. We want to be led by God alone and do not want to be overly influenced by others. We seek to send godly leaders into the world to be change agents for Christ.
“And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to Him must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who earnestly seek Him.” Hebrews 11:6
“What is impossible with men is possible with God.” Luke 18:27
We know that the Lord will not withhold his blessing from our endeavors carried out within His sovereign will. From Him, we can expect full provision for His will to be met in His timing. This applies to all aspects of Trinity, both tangible and intangible. We believe that faith gives us hope and saves us from the despair of a fallen world. We have faith in God’s provision and goodness for the school and all the lives that will be affected by it.
