Inspire Excellence

Trinity School has a proud past, exemplary present, and exciting future – and your support will help inspire that future.

Inspire Excellence

The leadership of Trinity was inspired through a campus master planning process to envision how our facilities might be reconfigured and enhanced to exceed today’s standards for excellence in elementary education and further reflect the School’s mission, program and pedagogy pillars, intended learning outcomes, and evolving student needs. The resulting new campus master plan is the foundation of Inspire Excellence, a $14.5 million capital and endowment campaign. Seventy years after our founding and two decades after moving to our current location, join us as we further inspire excellence in elementary education, ensuring Trinity continues to lead for generations.

  • April 13, 2022: Trinity School publicly launches Inspire Excellence campaign

    Trinity School is excited to launch the public phase of its $14.5 million Inspire Excellence campaign that will grow the School’s endowment and fund new facilities and significant renovations to several indoor and outdoor spaces. The Inspire Excellence campaign, which quietly commenced in January 2021, has already reached $9.5 million from early leadership donors and foundations!
    Intentionality and thoughtfulness shape all that occurs at Trinity, and the Inspire Excellence campaign is no exception. Maximizing our decades of expertise in elementary-only education and the innovations identified over the past few years, we have reimagined our footprint, where our students—and their academic success, safety, and play- and passion-based learning—excel. Ultimately, this campaign creates an environment that inspires discoverycommunity, and growth, advancing our unique institution and providing our students with even more opportunities to flourish.
    The campaign is composed of:
    • $4.6 million for Early Elementary playground enhancements and the already completed Early Childhood Outdoor Learning Center
    • $8.4 million for a second dining hall that will be dedicated to Early Elementary students; a Multi-Use Recreation Center that will house two gyms, one for Early Elementary P.E. and one for Upper Elementary recess; and already completed Upper Elementary classroom renovations
    • $1.5 million for the school’s endowment to support student financial assistance, employee salaries, and program improvements
    “This Inspire Excellence campaign will not only reshape the landscape of Trinity School, but also help us continue to be a leader in elementary education,” says Head of School Joe Marshall. “Years of planning have gone into this campaign, and the new structures and thoughtful renovations to our current facilities will fulfill a significant need for expanded, agile learning spaces and experiential outdoor environments. In addition, growing our endowment will allow us to provide even more resources to children of all backgrounds, maintain competitive salaries and benefits to continue to attract and retain the best educators and staff, and upgrade our curriculum to keep Trinity on the cutting edge of teaching and learning.”
