Holy Trinity School Mission Statement
Holy Trinity School is called by its parish community to educate our children and form them  in their Catholic faith that they might be faithful Disciples of Christ.

Holy Trinity School Philosophy
For Holy Trinity School parents, students, and educators, life is a journey of faith and Christ is the center of our lives. Holy Trinity prepares its students to be Disciples of Christ and active members of the Catholic Church by forming them in faith and the Gospels' call to service. Holy Trinity educates its students through academic inquiry, the pursuit of knowledge, and the development of critical thinking.

Testimonials

  • Genevieve Dvorak(Class of 2015)

    Holy Trinity is a big family of students and faculty that are thrilled to accept new students. They made me feel truly at home.

    John & Donna Stifter(Class of 1980 & Class of 1988)

    HT provided us an excellent level of instruction that prepared us for College. The college transition was easier because HT was not and we believe is still not a school that allows you to “sluff” off and get by. It is an education of a lifetime.
  • Mary Broderick (Class of 1956)

    Holy Trinity gave me a wonderful start, providing the educational and ethical building blocks that have served me my entire life. My heartfelt gratitude goes out to everyone who has insured Holy Trinity’s vitality over the years.

    Allison Christensen (Class of 2012)

    Holy Trinity's small size made my education more hands-on and gave me opportunities I wouldn't have had at a larger school, like forming a student band and directing the spring play.
