    As a parent of a recent graduate (now a college sophomore) and a current sophomore I have a broad perspective and appreciation for our school! My college age son was well prepared for a rigorous curriculum, and my high school son is well on the way. TBCS allows a student to explore many facets of themselves (academic, athletic, artistic, etc) while participating is a fun, social, engaging, diverse, and supportive school community. The faculty engagement with the students is extraordinary, and genuine. Additionally, the college counseling program helps our students forge their best post-secondary path, while keeping parents in the loop and familiar with options and requirements. A BIG shout out to the faculty and administration for its nimble pivot to meaningful on-line instruction during the COVID crisis. It has been a wonderful piece of stability for the kids during a difficult time.

    We are very grateful to live in a community with such a fantastic school for our daughter. Our 14 year old has attended Trinity-Byrnes for 3 semesters and it has been a wonderful experience. Recently, we have been most impressed with the school’s transition to distance learning during the Covid-19 crisis. On day one of the school building closure, my daughter was trained and ready to attend her video lectures. The school staff and teachers maintain professionalism and leadership while also showing real love and enthusiasm. Thank you Trinity-Byrnes!
    While there may have been skepticism sending a child from public to private school due to curriculum my nerves eased quickly as the faculty/staff bridged the gap by offering tutoring when necessary. That was a huge plus! The staff is easy to get along with and there’s that college feel on that campus. Sports are great but wouldn’t mind more exposure for the athletes. Great culture, room for growth with diversity but overall I would recommend this school to those looking to be tomorrow’s leaders.
