The arts department at Trinity College School is committed to fostering a creative learning environment to maximize the scope of artistic experience for every student. Trinity College School values, supports and recognizes the importance of the arts as a necessary and vital component of a student's well-rounded education.

The study of the arts is one of the cornerstones of an excellent education and one that we strongly believe is central to leading a rich and fulfilling life. The roles within the arts are many, from performer to consumer, but it is our goal to graduate students with creative, passionate involvement and understanding of the cultural life of their communities as well as refined skills in one or more arts disciplines. Our students are actively engaged in the process of learning alongside professionals in all arts disciplines and are given the opportunity to make the most of our state-of-the-art facilities.

In addition to a rigorous academic arts program, the breadth and depth of co-curricular arts programming has kept pace with the demands and creative energies of those who dare to dream. We encourage you to explore our world of performing and creative arts. The pace is fast. The enthusiasm is high. The energy is intense.
