School of Academics
Trinity offers an outstanding academic program, Kindergarten through 12th grades. Our students are part of an accelerated learning environment led by teachers who are gifted facilitators. Students develop a love for learning that will last a lifetime as they develop into responsible, well rounded individuals.
Trinity School of Academics and Fayetteville Technical Community College Collaboration
Trinity and Fayetteville Technical Community College provide a concurrent enrollment program for 11th and 12th grade students whose GPA is 3.0 or higher and SAT score of 1,000 on Critical Reading and Math. This program affords students enrolled at Trinity accelerated degree-applicable courses for advanced scholastic and vocational purposes. The program is a gateway for students to receive academic achievements and other scholarships. Students have received several scholarships, including the Bill Gates Millennium Scholarship, Valedictorian and Academic Scholarships.
About Our School
Trinity Academics is non-sectarian, college-preparatory day school serving students in grades K-12. Our goal is to eliminate the achievement gap of students as we develop lifelong learners and well-rounded global citizens. Through comprehensive academic studies, character development programs and competitive sports, Trinity provides a challenging and balanced education for college-bound students.
Trinity’s commitment to its students is grounded in the belief that the school is responsible for fostering academic excellence, self-discovery and personal integrity. Our accelerated academic program inspires our students to achieve excellence at every level.
In operation for more than 20 years, we continue to educate our students to be independent life-long learners and leaders who are able to work and play across cultural and geographic boundaries with compassion, creativity and wisdom. We specialize in serving children who are academically challenged and make every effort to address educational dilemmas by encouraging ongoing curricular review and development.
For the past few years, several factors have caused Cumberland County public schools to experience dramatic increases in student population within concentrated areas.
In Northern Fayetteville, the density of more than 3,000 students within a five-mile radius is problematic because the teacher-to-student ratio is heavily stressed. Studies show that teachers cannot effectively teach if there are too many students in a single class.
Smaller classes allow the teacher to interact with more effectively with their students. Although the solution to provide smaller classes to achieve academic excellence is a sound idea, it is not feasible because of the lack of classroom space available verses the number of school-age children.
Trinity Academics offers a positive solution to families who rely on the public education system, and we are equipped to transform young boys and girls into leaders of the future. We have smaller classes and our teacher/student ratio is 1/12 or less for Kindergarten and 1/16 or less for grades K-5. By creating an enhanced learning environment, our students will be able to achieve academic success and be prepared for college and beyond.
- In the 2005-2006 school year, 57 out of every 100 Black children and 46 out of every 100 Hispanic children in N.C. elementary schools failed to do grade level work in math, compared to 25 out of every 100 white children.
- About 46 of every 100 Black males who started high school four years earlier failed to make it to the 12th grade. The same is true for 46 of every 100 Hispanic males and 59 of every 100 American Indian males.
- In 2005, over one out of three of young Black males who did not graduate went into our criminal justice system. Studies show that racially integrated schools benefit all students with a diverse learning environment.
- Segregated schools have less experienced teachers who engage students in rigorous learning experiences. (North Carolina Justice Center [NCJC], 2007)
