  • School Profile Update

    A School Profile Update must be completed for each student by June 1. This is an annual online form to complete your child(ren)’s registration and enrollment for 2021-2022 and includes requests for:

    1. Student, Contact and Emergency Information
    1b. Alumni and Grandparent Information
    2. Sports and Outdoor Program
    3. Titan Closet
    4. Technology Agreement

To access the update, please login to your PowerSchool account, click “Forms” and select the first form under the Profile Update header. (If you have already submitted the Student, Contact and Emergency Information form, please verify that the information is still correct before continuing to the next form.)
    All questions about this form can be directed to Isa Dunaway (
  • Course Selection

    All new families will need to reserve a time to meet face to face with an assigned scheduler. These meetings will take place in June, and the deadline to reserve a time is Wednesday, June 1. When you login to PowerSchool to complete the School Profile Update (see above), you will also see a link for “New Student Course Registration.”  You will follow the link to your scheduler’s Google Calendar, which opens in a new tab, and select an available date and time to meet with them. You will also see an area to type your pre-selected courses for the school year. Those pre-selections are not final but will help guide the discussion with your scheduler. Final schedules will be available via PowerSchool on August 1. Once you have completed the Google Calendar sign-up, return to the PowerSchool form, check "Appointment has been requested", submit and continue to the last form, Volunteer Opportunities.
    Please have your student review the Course Description Guide ahead of time. It is helpful to know that all students take five year-long academic courses (English, social studies, mathematics, science and world language) each year. Students will also need to select at least two electives. Prior to graduation, students need to take two fine arts courses and one religion course. Students should keep this in mind when making their choices. The primary goal of the course selection process is to create a curriculum that will allow students to grow academically while maintaining balance in their school, home and extracurricular lives. Admission testing, grades and previous coursework will be considered when planning the schedule. A link to summer assignments will be provided in early June.
  • Student Medical Records (Magnus Health Profile)

    The Magnus Health Portal is now open for new families for submission of medical documents for the 2023-24 school year. All Trinity students are required to complete a Magnus Health Profile, which will include permissions to participate in activities and a space to upload your most recent physical exam (see below). To access the update, please login to your PowerSchool account, click the “Applications” icon and select “Magnus Health” the second form under the Application header. Parents will receive an additional email later this month with detailed instructions about how to access and update their Magnus Health account. However, the portal may be accessed at any time via your PowerSchool account. 
    All Trinity students are required to have a physical exam completed and dated AFTER May 1, 2023 by a physician and uploaded to the Magnus Health profile before participating in any on-campus Trinity activity. Please bring the official Trinity Student Physical Exam (PDF) form with you to your exam. 
    If you have any questions about completing the physical exam process, please contact Athletic Trainer Mark Hall ( or School Nurse Suzanne Winefordner (
  • Student Physical Exams

    All Trinity students are required to have a physical exam completed and dated AFTER May 1, 2023 by a physician (and uploaded to the Magnus Health profile) before participating in any on-campus Trinity activity in 2023-24. To facilitate this process, Trinity will be hosting an on-campus school physical session on Thursday, May 25 (2:30-5:00 p.m.) in the Estes Athletic Center. Dr. Steven G. Reece, of OrthoVirginia, will be on campus performing the physicals.
    The cost is $30 and only cash is accepted.  Please register here using this Signup Genius link

    If you have any questions about completing the physical exam process, please contact Athletic Trainer Mark Hall ( or School Nurse Suzanne Winefordner (

  • Athletics

    Athletic practices for most varsity teams begin the week of Monday, August 7. (Football practices begin Monday, July 31.) If your student plans to play a fall sport please review the Fall Athletics Preparation Grid for specific start dates and contact information. Contact Athletic Director Anna Prillaman ( with questions. 
    Completed physical exams and Magnus Health Profile (see above) are required for participation in the summer workouts and for all sports and activities during the school year. 
    Beginning in June, on-campus summer strength and conditioning will be available for Trinity athletes. Two evenings per week, incoming students (girls and boys in all sports) will be encouraged to come to the Estes Athletic Center to make new friends and meet new teammates. The official Summer Strength and Conditioning Schedule is available here. Contact Strength and Conditioning Coach Adam Banwarth ( with questions. 
    All Trinity student athletes will complete a Concussion Baseline Test as part of the on-campus preseason training in early August. 
  • Technology

    Trinity Episcopal School is pleased and proud to offer all students and faculty members access to a 13-inch Apple MacBook Air laptop computer. We hope that you share our excitement of being able to offer the MacBook computers as an instructional resource to our students and teachers at Trinity. Devices are loaned to the student for educational purposes for the duration of their Trinity career or until further notice, in accordance with Trinity’s acceptable use policies and rules. All students will be required to purchase a hard case for their device and show evidence of purchase the first week of school. In addition, students will need to bring to school their own headphones for use with the device and their own adapters, as these MacBooks do not come with an SD card slot or USB port.
    For expectations of care of the device, please review the Computer Loan Agreement (PDF).
    Trinity uses a web- and app-based system called PowerSchool to manage student academic records, schedules and grades. This is also where parents will access, complete and update their School Profile Update and Magnus Health Profiles. This is the same portal that all parents used to complete the enrollment contract when offered admission. New students and parents will be able to view class assignments on PowerSchool in early August.
  • Summer Assignments

    Trinity teachers post summer assignments so that incoming students can best prepare for the year. All assignments will be linked from this page no later than Thursday, June 1 for the summer of 2023. Summer assignments and course descriptions can also be accessed from within PowerSchool by selecting Other Links (last item in the left navigation). Students: please complete all summer assignments by Tuesday, August 15, 2023.

    Math Summer Review Packets
    EVERY math class (except Intro to Statistics and AP Statistics) will have a Summer Review Packet. They will be posted to the Trinity website by July 1, 2023. All packets will be due on the first day of school. There will be summer math tutorial sessions available to all students as they work through the packets. Information regarding tutorial will also be posted on July 1, 2023.
  • Textbooks and School Supplies

    At this time, books are not sold from the Titan Closet campus store. 

    USED Textbook Purchases
    The Trinity Parents Association sponsors an online Used Textbook Sale beginning August 1. A portion of the proceeds goes directly to supporting school needs. As a service to parents, the book sale committee publishes a comprehensive list of books required for each course prior to the online book sale.

    Please contact volunteer Used Book Sale Chair Rebekah DeRoco at with questions.

    NEW Textbook Purchases
    You may purchase new books online through the BNC Direct online bookstore (beginning in July): 
    1. Select Order Your Materials from the menu in the upper right

    2. Check your course(s)

    3. Scroll down to the bottom and click View Your Materials
    If you have questions about the online bookstore, please contact

    School Supplies
    Students will need common school supplies -- pens, pencils, looseleaf paper, folders, etc. Students will need a TI-84 Plus Series calculator for all math classes after Algebra 1. Each teacher provides a syllabus in the first week of school that includes a list of specific supplies needed. 
  • New Student Orientation Day (Monday, August 14)

    Orientation day will include team-building activities, presentations on community values by student leaders and technology training sessions with Trinity staff. Activities are being planned for new students (8th, 9th, and transfer) during that day. This orientation day will help to build community while allowing students and faculty to get to know one another before we begin our 8-day rotational class schedule.
  • Parent Directory

    Trinity will publish an online school directory on August 1 that includes the ability to sort parent contact information by ZIP code and locate other Trinity families near you.
  • Daily Schedule & Late-Start Monday

    The daily academic schedule at Trinity follows an eight-day rotation: eight traditional class periods are spread out over eight instructional days, then the rotation begins again. Over those eight days, each course meets six times—with one longer period per day that a teacher may use for activities, science labs, projects or group work. A rotational schedule is not a block schedule, which has a much lower frequency of student/teacher contact. An eight-day rotational schedule gives students broader course selection while maintaining a high degree of frequency of teacher/student contact.

    View a printable PDF copy of the Eight-Day Rotational Schedule here

    The first day of school (Wednesday, August 17) will follow a "DAY 1" schedule. Thursday, August 18 with "DAY 2;" Friday, August 19 will be "DAY 3;" etc.

    Late-Start Monday
    Every Monday, however, Trinity follows the "Late-Start Monday" schedule, which means students should arrive to Trinity for Morning Meeting at 8:45 a.m., and will be dismissed at 3:15 p.m.

  • Dress Code and Approved Trinity Clothing

    The boundaries of Trinity’s dress standard are designed to promote a learning environment and remind students that they are all part of a unified community. The standard allows students the opportunity to express themselves through their dress, but it does not permit any clothing deemed inappropriate. All clothing must be clean, neat, in good condition and worn for the purpose and in the manner for which it was designed.

    Please review with your students the full, detailed Standard of Dress (PDF).

    The Titan Closet is the ONLY approved merchant for Trinity apparel

    Parents, please be aware that Trinity does NOT have an online school store. The only merchant that produces and sells official, approved Trinity gear is the Titan Closet, located here on campus in the Estes Athletic Center. Any merchandise or apparel purchased online is not coming from a licensed or approved source, and Trinity will not receive any proceeds from purchases made online. Please note also that official Trinity apparel (including team and club apparel) produced in coordination with the Titan Closet is the only kind of “Trinity tee-shirt” considered an acceptable part of the school’s dress code.

    As always, the Titan Closet is stocked full of attractive and school-approved apparel, with new merchandise and designs added seasonally. Please stop in, visit the store’s web page or contact store manager Wendy Williams ( to learn more.
  • Freshman Class Retreat (Sep. 6-8)

    Each year, Trinity’s ninth graders participate in an off-campus program designed to foster effective group interaction. This year’s class will travel together to the Horizons Outdoor Learning and Retreat Center in Harrisonburg, VA, where they will participate in an outdoor program geared toward strengthening group skills and class unity in a fun and unique setting. A team of faculty chaperones will accompany the group on this three-day, two-night retreat, as professional facilitators from Horizons lead the daily activities.

    This year’s trip is planned for Wednesday, September 6 through Friday, September 8. The cost of the trip will be approximately $350, which will be split across the remainder of the billing cycle for parents on the monthly payment plan (and in a single invoice for all others). We encourage your child’s participation as we have found it to be an invaluable part of the Trinity freshman experience.
    Permission forms and more details will be posted to this page when finalized. 
  • 8th Grade Retreat (Sep. 13-15)

    Early in the fall, the 8th grade will enjoy an outdoor adventure and class bonding experience in the mountains of Southwest Virginia. A team of faculty chaperones will accompany the group on this three-day, two-night retreat, and professional facilitators from Wilderness Adventure at Eagle Landing in Newcastle, VA will lead the activities.
    This year’s trip is planned for Wednesday, September 13 through Friday, September 15. The cost of the trip will be approximately $350, which will be split across the remainder of the billing cycle for parents on the monthly payment plan (and in a single invoice for all others). We encourage your child’s participation as we have found it to be an invaluable part of the Trinity 8th grade experience.
    Permission forms and more details will be posted to this page when finalized.
