WELCOME TO

TRINITY CHRISTIAN SCHOOL

“Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord,
The fruit of the womb is His reward.
Like arrows in the hand of a warrior,
So are the children of one’s youth.”

Psalm 127:3-4

Trinity Christian School was established in 1978 as a private Christian school committed to providing a classical, biblical education to the young people of our community. With a starting assumption that education of children is the responsibility of parents, we seek to assist families in teaching all subjects in the light of God’s Word. Our goal is to provide a secure Christian environment of classical academic excellence. Please take a few moments to browse our site and learn about our academics, arts, sports, and other K-12 programs.

Student Athletics

At Trinity Christian School, we believe that present day athletics should reflect the ancient Western civilization ethos of advancing athleticism, education, and intellectual culture to the very highest level. We understand the importance of spiritual development, intellectual development, and physical development in the lives of our students and faculty.

Outdoor Classroom Program

In our desire to help our students learn more about the natural world around us, we are beginning a program of studies to teach in a hands-on approach about the wonders of nature that God has created for us to use and enjoy. We are planning several outdoor hands-on learning activities for our students including gardening, nature trails, bird watching, aquatic water studies, and identification of trees, plants, birds, and other wildlife. The Alabama Outdoor Classroom program provides our school with helpful resources to assist us in this endeavor.

Click the logo for more information about the program.

We will share more information about what our students are doing in upcoming months. If you have an interest in helping with this program by volunteering your time, resources, or knowledge in any of these areas of study, please contact us.

VISION STATEMENT – Our desire is to help parents cultivate in their children an enduring love of learning, a commitment to serve others, and a dedication to the pursuit of truth, goodness, and beauty, forged from historical models of orthodox Christianity. We aim to graduate virtuous scholars who think clearly, listen carefully, discern wisely, reason persuasively, and articulate precisely – all with an eagerness to glorify God and enjoy Him forever.
