Our Mission

Trinity Catholic High School is a diocesan, Roman Catholic coeducational, college preparatory School. The school is located on a 26-acre campus in northern Stamford.  A Christ-centered community committed to educating the whole human person within the Roman Catholic tradition.  It provides an atmosphere of respect and reverence in which each member is able to develop spiritually, morally, intellectually, socially, and physically in order to live as a positive Christian witness, and responsible citizen in the service of God and others.

PURPOSES AND OBJECTIVES

Our purpose is to acquaint the students with that important and substantial information about life and the world called “knowledge,” and to aid students in the development of the principles of morality, discipline, and self reliance.

All students are included in this walk whether eager to learn and to grow, or reluctant to do so. It is our responsibility to help as well as to guide them to think critically, to form mature judgments, and to assume a role in society which models mature and dedicated Catholic Christians. We seek to prepare students to become integral parts of the world in which they live, to interpret it intelligently, to contribute to it positively, and to change it responsibly.

We provide a moral, ethical, spiritual, and aesthetic view which encourages personal responsibility, service to others, and love of neighbor. We provide academic programs which stress high standards, and we offer varied extracurricular activities which encourage cooperation and competition.

We provide a concerned, caring community of dedicated teachers, staff, and administrators. Our process of education will be successful with the cooperation of the home, the school, and the students.
