TVS Shield
The arch represents the protective umbrella of the school. The student in the Trojan helmet represents a classical education. The figures represent the four educational objectives of the Trinity Valley School philosophy. The waves represent the sea, the endless quest for knowledge, timeless education, and the meaning of life while fulfilling the motto.

Honor Code
“I pledge my word and honor that I have neither given nor received any help on this examination.”
TVS believes that a constructive community cannot function without trust and honor. The honor code is an expression of this belief, seeking to instill in each student the concepts of decency and self-discipline.

Honoring Different Belief Systems
Although the school is non-sectarian, TVS works to foster respect for and belief in the moral and ethical laws on which our society was built through personal example and the study of philosophy. We encourage students’ participation in any established form of religion that they and their parents may choose, and we seek to create respect for all of them. TVS believes that neither fine scholarship nor intelligent citizenship will bear good fruit unless they are sustained by a belief in spiritual and moral values.
