Trinity Preparatory School is an independent, coeducational, college preparatory school that develops ethical, resilient leaders who thrive in the pursuit of excellence, embrace diversity of thought and perspective, and grow spiritually. In alignment with our mission, we affirm our commitment to our core values: Trinity Family; Educational Excellence, both Academic and Extracurricular; Leadership and Character Development; and Faith and Spirituality. Founded in 1968, a dedicated group of Orlando community leaders led by the late Reverend Canon A. Rees Hay wanted to provide a quality, independent secondary education for students in Central Florida. As a result, they established the Trinity Preparatory School in grades six through twelve. Affiliated with the Episcopal Church, we welcome families and students from all faith traditions, cultures, and backgrounds, knowing that we are all enhanced by diversity. Our dedicated and notable faculty and staff are leaders in their field who share their knowledge and expertise with others at various professional development opportunities worldwide. Their dedication is demonstrated to our students, families, and communities both inside and outside of the classroom with a balance of academic rigor and wellness. Trinity’s student body and families reflect the world as they travel from the greater Orlando area and across the nation to take part in the Trinity experience.
Our primary commitment is to provide an opportunity for student-athletes to fully develop their academic and athletic potential. Through practice, training and competition, the department strives to instill in each student-athlete: good sportsmanship and personal integrity, loyalty to the group and the ability to function with others as a team, appreciation for the benefits of hard work, motivation and perseverance in both winning and losing situations, and pride in accomplishments gained through fair and honest means. We strive to generate pride and enthusiasm in students, alumni, and the community which Trinity Prep serves. All Trinity Prep coaches are expected to embrace the school’s philosophy of encouraging students to participate in multiple sports teams at Trinity, rather than focusing on one sport and playing it year-round. As a coach, your responsibility is to help develop a well-rounded student-athlete with balance and objectivity.
