Middle School

Holy Trinity middle school serves sixth through eighth grade students. Our faculty and staff appreciate the change our middle school students experience as they prepare to transition between elementary school and high school.

Our highly credentialed faculty and curriculum offer a rigorous academic experience. Our Catholic faith is at the heart of our curriculum and forms the foundation of all we do in the classroom to achieve our mission.

Authentically Catholic: Weekly participation in Mass, quarterly participation in reconciliation, and preparation for Confirmation in the eighth grade. Additionally, students serve as leaders during the liturgies such as:

  • Altar servers
  • Lectors
  • Rosary leaders
  • Song leaders and musicians

Academically Excellent: Middle-school faculty and staff are dedicated to developing critical thinking and organizational skills.

The middle-school core curriculum of English, literature, math, science, social studies, and religion are enhanced with the use of technology such as the smart board and chrome books for research, reading comprehension activities, group work, presentations, mapping skills, and other activities. In addition to the core curriculum our middle school includes:

  • Spanish for 6th and 7th graders
  • Art
  • Music (band, choir, general music)
  • Physical education
  • Health
