The Whole Child

At Holy Trinity Catholic School we believe in educating the ‘whole’ child – academically, emotionally, socially, and spiritually.

Children are treasured and treated as such. The school and parents have joined hands through the PTA.

The mission and vision statements reflect the belief in the potential of students to be lifelong learners.

The responsibility of educators to prepare these students for the global community in which they will live is a sacred trust. To this end, Holy Trinity Catholic School fosters respect for God, self, others, education, diversity, service, integrity, responsibility, and Christian values.

    With the guidance of the Holy Trinity, we are dedicated to helping students fulfill their potential as lifelong learners and participants in our Catholic tradition who recognize their responsibilities within our global society.

    Vision Statement

    To be a school of excellence that encompasses the whole child by modeling Jesus through our Catholic teachings, commitment to academics, service to the community, and devotion as life-long servers to God.


    Every Child… One Voice

    Our PTA prides ourselves with the amount of time spent, money raised, and talent shared by our parents.

    We invite each one of you to become more actively engaged through the PTA. We have numerous committees and dozens of activities planned throughout the year – all of which benefit our students and the Eagle community. None of these would be possible without parental involvement.

    Please mark your calendar to join us at the PTA meetings this year so you can learn more and get involved. OUR community needs YOU!
