Extended Programs

Each day, our students explore, discover, and grow together through structured activities and play during Extended Programs (a.k.a. EP), Trinity's robust after-school program. Our team is comprised of outstanding educators who are committed to providing an engaging experience that is a true extension of the Trinity school day.

EP offers Core Classes and Special Classes. Core Classes are a mix of structured and unstructured after-school activities—such as playground time and monitored study time—that are led by Extended Programs Teachers and include a class that runs until 6 PM. Special Classes focus on students’ interests—such as Chess, Golf, and STEAM—and are led by Trinity Teachers or experts from the community. Early Learners are eligible for Special Classes beginning in the spring semester.

Through a variety of possibilities designed to best meet the needs of each family, parents may choose to have their children engaged in one after-school activity or a number of after-school offerings.

Financial Assistance

Per AAAIS guidelines, eligibility for financial assistance at Trinity School is based solely on need, and applying for financial assistance will in no way affect the consideration of your child for admission at Trinity. The application for financial assistance and determination of eligibility is processed by TADS. Following admissions decisions, financial assistance awards are specifically made through the financial assistance committee at Trinity School. Every family receiving assistance is asked to pay some portion of the tuition. All financial assistance requests are kept confidential.

Financial assistance applications for the 2019-20 school year will be available through TADS on November 1, 2018. 

For additional information regarding financial assistance, please contact Brad Brown, Director of Admissions and Enrollment Management, at bbrown@trinityatl.org or 404-231-8111.

Frequently Asked Questions

List of 7 items.

  • What is Financial Assistance?

    At Trinity School, we believe that qualified families should have the opportunity to benefit from a Trinity education. Our financial assistance funding is intended to assist families with bridging the gap between income and their ability to pay the total educational expenses.  
  • Who is eligible to apply for Financial Assistance?

    Financial assistance applications are open to both current families and families who are applying for admission to Trinity. 
  • Will applying for financial assistance impact my admissions decision?

    Per AAAIS guidelines, eligibility for financial assistance at Trinity School is based solely on need. Applying for financial assistance will in no way affect the consideration of your child for admission at Trinity School.
  • How are Financial Assistance Awards determined?

    The application for financial assistance and determination of eligibility is processed by the Tuition Aid Data Service (TADS). Financial assistance awards are need-based and are determined after a thorough review conducted by our Financial Assistance Committee. TADS uses the financial information you provide through the TADS application to calcuate an estimated amount that your family can contribute to the cost of a Trinity education. In reviewing your TADS application, the Financial Assistance Committee will determine demonstrated need by considering factors such as net income, assets, number of dependents, number of students attending tuition-charging institutions, any unusual expenses such as medical costs or educational debt, and other sources of income such as support from relatives. The committee will also take into consideration your need relative to other families applying for assistance.  
     
    Every family receiving assistance is asked to pay some portion of the tuition. All financial assistance requests are kept confidential.
  • When is the deadline to apply for Financial Assistance?

    Financial assistance applications open on November 1, 2018. To be eligible for consideration for financial assistance, you must complete and submit all required documents by March 1, 2019. The Financial Assistance Committee will communicate financial assistance decisions on March 30, 2019. Families seeking financial assistance are encouraged to complete their applications as early as possible.
  • Is Financial Assistance renewable each year?

    New applications for financial assistance and supporting documentation must be filed each year through TADS. Changes in your financial status may affect the receipt or amount of assistance. Your child's account must be kept current as financial standing is a factor in determining awards for subsequent years. The student must be in good standing both academically and in conduct as determined by the division head or Head of School in order to be considered for financial assistance for subsequent years.  
  • What about a divorced, separated, stepparent, or never married family?

    Trinity School expects both custodial and non-custodial parents (regardless of legal settlements) who are divorced, separated, or never married to to contribute to educational costs. If a child is living with a parent and a stepparent, we will also consider the stepparent’s income. All parties involved are expected to communicate and participate in good faith with this responsibility.
