Greetings from the Admissions Department!

Thank you for your interest in learning more about our community where each child is known and celebrated for their unique voice.  Trinity’s size creates a unique opportunity for classes and educators to meet the needs of students as individuals. We are home to the introspective and shy as much as the spirited and inquisitive.

We are excited to offer new and innovative ways to share our nearly 6-acre elementary campus and intentionally, right-sized Early Childhood campus with you in a safe and meaningful manner.

Please sign up for a Ravenna account to gain access to our admission events and enrollment application: Ravenna

We are fully enrolled in our Early Childhood Program, although your family can be placed on a waitlist to be contacted should an opening occur.  For the 2021-22 school year, we have limited spaces remaining in Grades 2 and 4, if interested, we welcome your inquiries. 

We look forward to meeting you and welcome your questions in the interim.

Go Timberwolves!!
Kirk Gossman
Director of Admission and Matriculation

Current Family

I am so glad we found Trinity - it has been such a wonderful experience for our family. They are a little gem in Silicon Valley, and so many families and kids just love being part of the Trinity community. We are in touch with many current and past families, and they still feel so connected to the school and the friends they made there. It's a testament to the strength and quality of the education and faculty team, the kind and inclusive community, and a small school setting where each child is known and matters.
