Trinity Catholic High School was established in 2003 in the proud

tradition of its predecessor high schools - Mercy, St. Thomas

Aquinas, Rosary and St. Thomas Aquinas-Mercy.

Mission Statement

Trinity Catholic High School is a welcoming and caring community

committed to graduating responsible citizens grounded in Christian

values, dedicated to serving others and engaged in life long learning.

Vision Statement

Trinity serves the young men and women in the North County area

and beyond and provides an excellent, comprehensive academic

program that is unmatched in value and strives to be

state-of-the art.

Trinity students are challenged to think critically, live virtuously and

serve joyfully. The diversity of each individual’s talent, intellect,

style and ability is recognized and celebrated.

Trinity is a great place for anyone looking to receive

a quality education and also have a lot of fun. I

remember as a freshman I used to look forward to

graduating from high school, but now that I am a

senior I can’t imagine my life away from Trinity and

all of the people that are involved with the school.

Trinity has changed my life in the most amazing ways

and I know it will do the same for you if you choose to

attend Trinity.”

Kevin McKenna

Senior


Trinity is a comprehensive, co-educational high school that is fully

accredited by the North Central Association. Trinity is also a

member of the National Catholic Education Association.

Trinity’s curriculum is designed to meet a wide range of student

abilities, interests and career goals as well as challenge students of

all ability levels. In most subject areas courses are offered at three

levels while a total of 10 Advanced College Credit and Advanced

Placement courses are offered in the areas of English, Spanish,

History, Mathematics and Science for junior and senior

students that qualify.

Trinity uses a block schedule with periods that are organized in

longer “blocks” of time. The schedule is comprised of eight

blocks, or classes, that meet over a two-day period (A&B days). On

a regular schedule day the blocks are 75-minutes long and allow

for expanded instructional methods such as collaborative

learning, hands-on activities, labs, experiments and

team-teaching. Trinity students are required to earn 31 credits

to graduate (for specific course requirements please see the

Curriculum Guide on line under Academics

at trinitycatholichigh.org).

Trinity develops well-rounded students by offering a variety of

co-curricular activities, including a total of 29 athletic teams, at all

grade levels. Many other clubs and activities, such as

Cheerleading, Dance Line, Student Council, Renaissance,

Yearbook and Newspaper, are also offered.

Trinity students Made A Difference

during the 2009-2010 school year.

Trinity finished second in the state for the sixth time at the Worldwide Youth

in Science and Engineering (WYSE) academic contest.

Close to 40% of the 2010 Trinity graduates earned scholarships worth

a combined $1.4 million and 48% of last year’s graduates left Trinity with at

least 15 hours of college credit already completed.

The Trinity boys and girls soccer, softball and baseball teams won district

championships and the girls soccer team advanced to the state championship

game for the second straight season, while Trinity wrestlers Garrett Beckham

and Marquis West each finished third in state.

A decision was made to debut a boys swim team during the 2010 season to go

along with the highly successful girls swim team at Trinity.

Trinity became the first high school in the state of Missouri to open a credit

union at its school. The Gateway Metro Credit Union branch

at Trinity is open once a week to provide Trinity students with credit

union services as well as enhanced financial education programs.

Trinity’s Missions and Campus Ministry teams were tireless in their efforts to

raise money and conduct drives for the less fortunate, locally, nationally and

even internationally.

Plans were made for the creation of a fifth computer lab and the updating of

another computer lab to include virtual science lab software.
