  • Overview

    Founded in 2000, Trinity Episcopal School is a K-8 independent, coeducational school of 437 students. Situated on an attractive urban campus in the Garden District of Charlotte’s First Ward neighborhood, TES capitalizes upon the vibrant Center City as an extended classroom, providing engaging academic and unique service learning opportunities.

    A profoundly mission‐driven institution, Trinity is dedicated to three core values that are thoroughly intertwined: creating scholars, nurturing spirituality, and embracing diversity. In weaving these core values together, the School is redefining educational excellence through its constructivist, problem-based, student-centered, and differentiated methodologies. We believe that this educational philosophy creates a community of students who are fully engaged in learning, and we aspire to graduate 8th graders who are as similarly curious about the world as when they arrived on campus as kindergarteners. In keeping with the Episcopal educational tradition, spiritual development is integral to the Trinity experience, reflected in regular opportunities for community worship, faith studies classes, and a comprehensive service‐learning program. The founders of Trinity Episcopal School sought to create a student body that would reflect the population of the Charlotte metropolitan area – a diverse community of learners who could grow together with a mutual sense of belonging, respect, and appreciation. Trinity is populated by a rich variety of people from diverse racial, ethnic, religious, and socioeconomic backgrounds. This intentional pluralism is a hallmark of Episcopal schools, which Trinity has embraced since its founding. Additionally, Trinity has established an honor code that holds students to the highest standards of integrity and personal conduct.
