                                                    SCHOOL DESCRIPTION
Trinity is a college preparatory, coed independent day school founded in 1709, grades K-12. Admission is selective and financial
aid is given. Trinity is no longer sponsored by a specific religious body, and the Trinity community is characterized by religious,
racial and ethnic diversity. The senior class is comprised of 112 students, 25% of whom receive financial aid through the school.
The year includes two semesters of approximately 18 weeh. All students take a college preparatory program .


                                                GRADING AND CLASS RANK
Our grading system is A+ through F with grades of A- and higher designated as Honors grades. Our lowest passing grade is D-.
Trinity does not rank its students or compute a grade point average. The use of rank or quintile for a group of pre-selected
students is thought to be statistically invalid and incomplete. In the spring, a rank is determined for Cum Laude Society eligibility.
