education

Many factors distinguish Holy Trinity Catholic School from other schools in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, and this is evident in the personal excellence of each of our students. We offer a classical education that is built around national standards, TCCB ED Catholic school requirements, and comprehensive reading, writing and math instruction.

Our teaching philosophy is rooted in academic rigor, a structured environment that promotes discipline, accountability and respect, and one that is focused on building the confidence of every student.

Our approach is one of progressive learning and responsibility, not teaching to the lowest common denominator.

An accelerated math program, balanced literacy approach and introduction to the 6 +1 traits of writing workshop are key priorities. Classrooms allow for integrated learning experiences and differentiated instruction that engages students in a variety of settings.
Faith is at the heart of the school experience. Weekly Mass or prayer services and daily religion classes build a strong Catholic foundation, and service projects provide application of social justice teachings. Specials classes include Spanish, art, music, physical education, computer lab, and library.

The middle school program is designed to help students gain an edge in college preparation early in their academic journey. We prepare our students to take Honors, Accelerated, and Pre-AP/AP courses when they enter high school.

As a direct result, they develop a strong work ethic, disciplined study habits, and the time management skills necessary for succeeding in rigorous course work. At the same time, they explore the world from various perspectives and assume the responsibilities of reasoning, analyzing, and understanding.
