A Community of Learners
Freedom to focus, freedom to explore, freedom to grow
There's a freedom in a single-sex classroom that allows us to accomplish our mission more effectively.
Fostering one great conversation
We bring philosophy, history, literature and theology under the same umbrella, and discuss them in one course. Three goals of the course are to learn how to read well, to discuss well and to write with clarity and depth.
Filling the gap between the chalkboard and demonstrations
Matlab programming enables students to integrate what they're learning in math and science.
Enabling students to thrive
"I want them to see the beauty of our topics, not just ask: how do you solve a problem?"— Faculty member.
Ryan T. Anderson
TSMV Commencement Speaker
TSMV’s Commencement took place Saturday, June 14, at The Falls Church Episcopal Church with twenty-two graduates receiving diplomas. Commencement speaker Ryan T. Anderson, editor of The Public Discourse, the daily journal of the Witherspoon Institute at Princeton, exhorted the graduates to be relentless in their pursuit of knowledge and to use this to uphold the truths our country was based upon.
“As rational beings made in the image and likeness of God, we have a calling to develop our minds—to embrace the best of both Athens and Jerusalem, philosophy and theology. Trinity School has prepared you well for this, but you must see to it that you continue to nurture your intellectual calling at college,” said Anderson.
“When faced with modern skepticism, we have the responsibility to show the world the harmony of faith and reason. When faced with modern relativism, we have the obligation to propose with the apostle Paul the more excellent way.”
In addition to his work at the Witherspoon Institute, Anderson is also a Fellow at the Heritage Foundation and has co-authored a seminal work on marriage entitled What is Marriage? He is at the heart of the national debate over the most important cultural, legal and political issues of our time.
