Mission and History

Mission

Holy Trinity Episcopal Academy, a school founded and sustained in the Episcopal tradition, offers an academically challenging curriculum in an environment that reflects the joy and peace of Christian values. We welcome motivated students of average and above average ability who come from any religious, racial, social, or ethnic group. Each student and family is encouraged by competent faculty and staff to participate fully in the spiritual, athletic, artistic, and social life of the academic community. As our students grow to appreciate their value to themselves and to the school community, they will leave Holy Trinity Episcopal Academy with valuable tools for effective learning and living.

Core Values

The Board of Trustees, students, faculty, staff, and families of Holy Trinity Episcopal Academy share the vision of an academic community based on the love of God, self-respect, respect for one’s neighbors, and respect for God’s creation, thus fostering honorable and ethical decision-making throughout the entire community. The Holy Trinity community affirms this commitment by demonstrating a strong work ethic, embracing others’ uniqueness, encouraging a spirit of cooperation and promoting a sense of fair play.

History

Holy Trinity Episcopal Academy, established in 1957 as Holy Trinity Parish Day School, has occupied the historic school grounds at Holy Trinity Episcopal Church since that time. It began with six classrooms, an office, and 90 students. The founding Rector, The Reverend Alex Boyer, envisioned a community school with an emphasis on the basic subjects, small class size and spiritual guidance.

Since its inception, the school has transformed itself from a small day school into the premier independent college preparatory school in Brevard County, building a tradition of rigorous academic programs, spiritual development, and athletics to develop the whole child. In 2000, the school expanded with the addition of an Upper School, serving grades 7-12, on a 40-acre Pineda Campus. The existing Parish Campus became the Lower School, serving students in preschool through grade 6. The new Upper School features state-of-the-art classrooms, a gymnasium, athletic stadium, chapel, and 800-seat auditorium. The first class of seniors graduated in 2003. The Class of 2003 and subsequent graduates have well-documented successes, further enhancing Holy Trinity Episcopal Academy’s reputation within the community and beyond.

Staying true to the "Holy Trinity Way,” the school upholds its vision and commitment to foster a rigorous curriculum, a qualified and caring faculty, a low student/teacher ratio, a strong athletic program, an exceptional college guidance department, and a safe and nurturing Christian environment. Students are consistently commended for outstanding academic achievement, leadership, athletics, community service, and the arts.
