Trinity Christian School offers a distinctively Christian curriculum for students in Junior Kindergarten to Grade Eight. The curriculum is designed to nourish the whole child through his or her heart, mind and spirit, and build the child’s relationship with God, others, and the world.
A Trinity education leads and guides children to understand their role in God’s world by developing strong collaborative and communication skills and encouraging creativity and critical thinking.
Although Trinity’s academic program aligns with the standards and expectations of the Ontario Ministry of Education curriculum documents, it is infused with a Christian perspective and worldview. The curriculum includes three core learning strands that provide a solid framework for study:
- Believing – We believe in the Triune God as Creator and Lord over all as revealed in the infallible Word of God.
- Belonging – We belong to a community of Grace that seeks to instill a love for Christ and a passion for learning.
- Becoming – We desire to become Disciples of Christ and stewards of the world in which we live.
Trinity Christian School strives to provide our students with opportunities to develop their God-given talents and abilities. Each student is encouraged and challenged academically, spiritually and emotionally.
Specifically, these themes are woven throughout the curriculum so that Trinity graduates will reflect the following characteristics:
