There are more than 60 after-school offerings—including karate, yoga, dance, cheerleading, running, World Languages, robotics, coding, math, art, chess, acting, and music lessons—and an optional nap time for our youngest learners each day. In addition to our after-school program, Trinity School holds a wide-range of sports, academic, and special interest camps in June and late July that are taught by many of the same Extended Programs teachers and community experts.

Following admissions decisions, awards are specifically made through the financial assistance committee at Trinity School. Every family receiving assistance is asked to pay some portion of the tuition, and all financial assistance requests are kept confidential.

All Trinity students have a dedicated electronic learning device. For students with underlying medical conditions or other concerns, we provide distance learning if they need to stay at home.


Bright. Funny. Speaks French. Played a lead in the Opera. Learning fashion design. This is no accident. Every step of Dorian’s Trinity journey has been intentional. From three years old on, we’ve helped her deepen and expand the understanding that came before. Now, she has grown as a critical thinker, she has risen to intellectual challenges, and she has blossomed as a leader. Best of all, she knows herself as a learner. She’s well prepared for success in middle school and beyond.

Middle School Placement As with everything at Trinity School, the middle school placement process is a learning opportunity for our students. By thoughtfully and intentionally equipping students to transition to their next schools, we are also educating and preparing them for the many transitions they will face throughout life. Sarah Morgan Bonham, our Director of Outplacement, works closely with parents, students, and Atlanta area schools. She cultivates excellent partnerships with all the schools to which our students apply and meets with families one-on-one to guide them through the application process, support them as they explore secondary school options, and ensure a smooth transition during the next step of their educational journey. “Once a Trinity child, always a Trinity child” is more than a Trinity School motto. Our students are known and loved during their time here, and we maintain that relationship after they graduate from Trinity and celebrate our alumni’s successes as they make their mark on the world. Questions? Contact Sarah Morgan Bonham at sbonham@trinityatl.org
