“The mind is never passive; it is a perpetual activity, delicate, receptive, responsive to stimulus. You cannot postpone its life until you have sharpened it. Whatever interest attaches to your subject matter must be evoked here and now … That is the golden rule of education, and a very difficult rule to follow.”Alfred North Whitehead, The Aims of Education
Many factors influence a family’s choice of school, but the most important feature of an educational institution is its academic program. Will the program inspire your child with a vision of greatness?
At Trinity School, we believe our academic program answers “Yes” to all these questions.
Our philosophy of education begins with an understanding of your child as a young person full of wonder, curious about the world, and eager to learn. And our curriculum is designed to answer the most important question a school should ask about outcomes: “What should educated adults in our time know?” Our task as educators is to match up your child’s natural desire for wisdom with the dispositions, skills and knowledge that are crucial to human thriving.
