TCS Priority Plan

Purpose

The mission of Trinity Christian School is to assist parents in providing students with a Biblical worldview education, equipping them to become Christ-like leaders in their homes, churches, communities and workplaces. In order to lead, students must be prepared to engage in an increasingly diverse culture. This diversity manifests in the form of race and socioeconomic status. “The “Priority Program,” funded by Trinity Church, is intended to lower economic barriers to admission and enhance TCS’ ability to expose a broader range of students to a Kingdom Education.
