And our teachers love to work here! For four consecutive years, Trinity has been awarded a Top Workplaces honor by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. For 2022, 4,583 Atlanta companies were nominated or asked to participate in the Top Workplaces contest. A total of 175 companies were selected, and Trinity made the list in the “Top Midsize Workplace” category (150–499 employees).

With a variety of possibilities designed to best meet the needs of each family, including drop-in care, your child can participate in one after-school activity or several. There are more than 60 after-school offerings—including karate, yoga, dance, cheerleading, running, robotics, coding, math, art, and chess—and an optional nap time for our youngest learners. In addition to our after-school program, we offer a wide range of sports, academic, and special interest camps in June and later in the summer that are taught by many of the same Extended Program teachers and community experts.
