The program academically prepares students for the rigors of college, and can also give students an advantage in the college admission process.

By a tiny majority (51%), they are attending schools in Virginia. Trinity students have been accepted to prestigious specialty schools and programs, including Cooper Union, School of the Art Institute of Chicago, School of the Visual Arts, Virginia Commonwealth University School of Engineering, and the music programs at Belmont University and Indiana University.
