Senior School Academics
Trinity College School's challenging academic programme over four years of high school emphasizes a liberal arts philosophy. Students are engaged equally in the arts and sciences during their first two years of study. In Grade 11 and 12, students begin to specialize and many take Advanced Placement courses.
Our Academic Vision:
Trinity College School offers a broad and rigorous curriculum with the ability to concentrate studies in areas of personal interest. At TCS, education is collaborative, rich in discussion, and writing-intensive. We believe that learning is an active process that fosters habits of the heart and mind while challenging all students to communicate effectively and to think both critically and creatively.
Class sizes at TCS are small, ranging from 12 to 20 students. This ensures that each student receives personal attention and the opportunity to develop positive relationships with their teachers. The student-teacher ratio is 8:1.
TCS emphasizes learning through the use of information technology, with in-room access to the Internet, e-mail, SmartBoards and fully networked classrooms. Students and teachers use laptops for Web research, classroom assignments and presentations and also benefit from a online learning system which allows communication and access to course information after school hours.
TCS prides itself on four great strengths in our academic programme: our course of study or curriculum, our facilities, our schedule and our faculty. For more detailed information, please select from the menus on the right.
