Welcome to Trinity Valley School! I invite you to take a glimpse into our wonderful school and its community. There is joy in our halls, on our stages, and on the playing fields. As you travel through the beautiful mission-style campus filled with shade trees, you will see our students deep in discussion, laughing uproariously on the playgrounds, and enjoying time with one another.
A Trinity Valley education is about “the possible.” Students at TVS are known and valued for who they are now and for who they can become.
Here, it is possible to be a scholar, an athlete, an artist, a scientist, a writer, a musician, and more. Our students delight in participating in a full array of academic and co-curricular activities throughout their time here. The matchless support of our top-notch faculty ensures that students learn how to be their very best selves, buoyed by the encouragement and genuine care they receive from teachers, coaches, and campus leaders. Our faculty is steadfast in their dedication to offering our students the rich, complete TVS experience in fulfillment of our mission.
Mr. Stephen Seleny, our founding headmaster, wanted students to think deeply and broadly about their own world and the global stage, and the roles they play in both. Today, TVS students continue to carry out his vision through the Global Education Program, where they interact with people around the globe. TVS students become informed global citizens through hosting and visiting others, as well as by harnessing technology to communicate with students in other countries. Through this program’s many facets and thoughtful leadership, our young people from Pre-K through grade 12 develop a keen understanding of the world’s collective humanity, of our similarities across the globe, and how to navigate cultural variations with dignity.
The Trojan Outdoor Experience (TOE) Program is in its fifth decade and continues to teach resilience, healthy risk-taking, and teamwork through experiential learning. Our Trojans study archeology, master high ropes courses, and so much more, all the while learning about themselves in ways that are inaccessible in a traditional classroom setting. Stretching out of their comfort zone is an important part of developing grit and shaping thought processes that will serve these students for a lifetime. A defining aspect of TOE is the opportunity for older students to lead and mentor their younger peers in TOE experiences, linking the two groups in unexpected and special ways.
Thank you for considering Trinity Valley School for your family. We encourage you to learn more about us through shared experiences, as these words alone cannot fully convey the whole of TVS. The sense of family we experience today has been a hallmark of the School since its founding in 1959, and we look forward to sharing that with you.
Head of School
