Elementary School

Throughout our students’ elementary years, we strive to meet the needs of individual learners by providing a safe, loving and spiritually rich environment where each child can progress according to his/her learning style and developmental level. Low student-to-teacher ratios ensure that each child receives individualized attention. Many of our faculty have achieved the Florida Gifted Endorsement, which better prepares them to teach children of both average and above average ability.

Holy Trinity’s philosophy of educating the whole child – mind, body and spirit – translates to a robust curriculum including music, library, Tech Lab, STEAM Lab, art, and physical education. Daily recess is also a part of our students’ day.
 
Our integrated curriculum spans across subjects so that, for example, a topic covered in social studies or science may also be explored in a different way in reading, art or music class. Academically related field studies provide hands-on opportunities for students to expand their understanding of subject matter and connect what they’re learning to the real world. Special activities such as Create Your Own Adventure Day and Innovation Day allow students to explore unique areas of interest and to share their passions with others.
 
Upon completion of sixth grade, our students are well prepared to meet the challenges of middle school and high school – academically, creatively, physically, and socially.




Building upon the strong foundation established in our Early Childhood program, our faculty works as a team to provide a seamless college-preparatory curriculum from grade to grade – creating confident, successful students and lifelong learners.

Primary Grades 1-3

Our primary school program, which includes first, second and third grade, features an academically and intellectually rigorous curriculum that fosters learning through exploration, development of strategic thinking, and engaged learning through directed and self-initiated projects. In these crucial learning years, students build a strong academic foundation, mastering and reinforcing essential skills that will carry them throughout their learning careers.

To accommodate children’s tremendous growth in grades 1 through 3, each grade has a team of talented and dedicated teachers who work together to address each student’s individual needs, enabling each child to build confidence and achieve academic success.


Intermediate Grades 4-6

During grades 4-6, students become more independent thinkers, building intellectual curiosity and analytical thinking skills. Fourth grade students rotate through the subjects of mathematics, writing, and social studies/science in the morning and spend the remainder of the day with their homeroom teacher for spelling, handwriting and reading. Fifth and sixth graders change classes for each subject, building a bridge to their junior high experience. Our intermediate teachers provide a secure base for pre-teenagers to explore greater independence and autonomy, a process that involves risk-taking, success and failure in a constructive and supportive environment.

In addition to their regular enrichment schedule, sixth grade students have the opportunity to take quarterly offerings in music, art, French or Spanish (two quarters each), or Tech Lab. Sixth grade students are encouraged to dive deep and focus on one area for enrichment the entire year or sample a mixture offerings throughout the year.
