Engaging Minds, Transforming Lives. 

At Trinity Christian School, education is about more than being successful: our students are learning a deeper vocation that goes beyond getting a job. Trinity is a fully accredited, classical Christian school in Kailua, Hawai‘i, serving Preschool–12th Grade, while preparing students for college and for living a Christ-centered life.

Preschool-3rd Grade is taught at 875 Auloa Road, Trinity’s Mauka campus, while 4th-12th Grade is served at 1110 Kailua Road, Trinity’s Makai campus. Utilizing the classical method, which is rooted in the liberal arts tradition that has been present in Hawai‘i since the 18th century, Trinity teachers and staff prepare students to be lifelong learners, thinkers, and doers.

But what exactly is a classical education? Simply, the classical method educates students in a way that matches how children and young adults learn naturally. The classical method categorizes Preschool–Secondary education into three stages: Grammar, Logic, and Rhetoric. At the Grammar stage, or Preschool–6th Grade, students have the ability to absorb vast amounts of information, and the classical method taps into that quality to develop a basic foundation of knowledge.

The Logic stage, 7th and 8th Grade, teaches students to build on that knowledge by learning logical thinking, critical reading and writing skills, and the ability to ask thoughtful questions. Finally the Rhetoric stage, 9th–12th Grade, teaches them to take their knowledge base and logical thinking and use it to form their own arguments and persuasion techniques.

Academics

Our Preschool classes offer a holistic program that nurtures our students spiritually, socially, emotionally, and physically, ultimately preparing them to start the Grammar stage of instruction. With small classes that allow our teachers to give each student individualized attention, we provide our students with language arts, math, and science activities, as well as specialist classes including art, music, Hawaiian language, physical education, and swimming.

Our Kindergarten-6th Grade classes reflect the Grammar stage by providing our students with an education that builds up their foundational knowledge and increases their capacity for memorization, while also providing them with opportunities to explore the world around them. In addition to their academics, students learn art, music, physical education, and swimming each week, and are taken on a wide variety of excursions throughout the year, including museums, plays, and symphonies. In particular, our 5th Graders go on a 3-day trip to the Big Island and our 6th Graders stay overnight on the USS Missouri.

At the secondary school level, students experience the Logic and Rhetoric stages through a variety of humanities, language, math, and science courses that challenge them to not only learn the material, but build upon it, and by their senior year, present and defend a 20-minute senior thesis to a panel of judges. Academics are supplemented by electives, including Art, Music, Speech & Debate, Drama, Yearbook, and Leadership. Finally, as a capstone to their classical learning, our seniors travel to Europe for a two-week study tour (expenses covered by tuition), including England, France, Italy, and Greece.

We are confident that seniors who graduate from Trinity are thoughtful, well-spoken individuals who exhibit the grace of God in everything they do. Since expanding to a secondary school in 2008, Trinity graduates have gone on to pursue not only bachelor’s and master’s degrees but also volunteer for mission trips, travel abroad, and receive numerous scholarships and recognitions. At Trinity, our goal is to provide students with everything they need to live a life that is dedicated to serving others, God, and their communities.
