Trinity’s mission to help students discover their paths is reflected in our curriculum and course offerings. A variety of subjects are offered in each discipline and at different levels. All levels are college preparatory and the goal is to place each student in courses at levels that are challenging yet developmentally appropriate.
The regular course load is six credits per year. Students may only sign up for six core academic classes per year. This is the maximum number allowed for any student, including IB diploma candidates. Seven classes is the maximum number of scheduled courses a student may take each semester. All students new to Trinity may register for only six total classes in their first semester. Seniors must earn a minimum of six credits in the senior year, with at least five of them through year long courses. During the senior year, a student may take a maximum of 4 IB HL courses or 4 AP courses.
While Trinity makes every effort to place students in the courses that they request, sometimes the creation of the master schedule means that students may need to choose alternatives.
Requests for an exception to an academic rule should be made in writing to the Associate Head of School.
