Book pack fees are charged separately because they represent a product for students to own. While some schools will have students pay for all their books, we limit our book packs to just those works of literature we want students to mark up and then keep for their own personal libraries. Contact your respective principal if you would like to see a list of books included in each grade’s book pack.
- 3rd Grade - 6th Grade: $60
- 7th - 12th Grade: $150
Trinity Christian School uniforms are provided by Lands’ End. To purchase uniforms online, go to www.landsend.com/school and click “Find My School.” From there, you can either look up Trinity Christian School or enter our Preferred School Number, 900162702.
To help make our school as affordable as possible, Trinity Christian School also hosts a used uniform sale each summer. For details about this year’s sale, please check our Facebook for updates.
Trinity Christian School offers tuition assistance for students in Preschool through Grade 12 based on the need of the family and is awarded on an annual basis. Tuition assistance is not available for Home School Extension students or our Summer Advantage Program.
The tuition assistance is funded by Trinity's Parent Teacher Fellowship, individual donors, community foundation grants, and in part by our school’s operating budget. Funds are limited.
Families requesting assistance must have an admissions application on file with the school to be considered. The tuition assistance application is to be completed annually online at www.factstuitionaid.com. FACTS Grant Aid charges a $30 non-refundable application fee per family. Online applications are due mid-March; award notification letters will be sent out by mid-April.
Families receiving tuition assistance are strongly encouraged to participate and volunteer in Campus Work Days, and/or to serve the school in ways in which they are gifted.

Kamehameha Schools also offers the Pauahi Keiki Scholars Preschool Scholarship Program for those of Hawaiian ancestry. The Kipona Scholarship Program is also available for those in elementary. Please contact the Kamehameha Schools Financial Aid & Scholarship Services Office for eligibility information and application.
