Trinity Valley School’s Middle School fully embraces its mission to embrace the whole child as an active and ever-changing learner. We strive to foster an environment that guides identity development, strengthens character, enhances individual interests, and supports young students taking healthy risks within a nurturing atmosphere. TVS middle school students are expected to demonstrate independence of thought and action while accepting responsibility for their choices.

Following are other ways Trinity Valley’s middle schoolers learn and grow:

  • The TOE (Trojan Outdoor Experience) program seeks to develop kind neighbors and confident leaders through experiences found both inside and outside the classroom. Leadership training and teambuilding are central to the mission of the experiential education program in the middle school.
  • The middle school advisory program seeks customized opportunities for student voices to be heard and respected.
  • All seventh- and eighth-grade students are welcome to take part in our athletics program.
  • Our middle school students take the stage each year for the extracurricular middle school musical. All students can take part in the show!

This is but a sampling of the offerings at Trinity Valley School. We hope you will share your child with us during fifth through eighth grades – and beyond! – for an adventure in learning both in and out of the classroom.
