Trinity School

139 W 91st St, New York, NY 10024

Founded by royal charter, this school was housed at Trinity Church for its first 100 years and was formally affiliated with the parish until 1970. Although Trinity is no longer an Episcopal school, religion remains an important part of school life. An Episcopal chaplain leads weekly chapel services, students in grades 5 and 6 take introductory religion courses, and upper school students fulfill a religion requirement. In the middle school, the fifth- and sixth-grade curriculum includes English, French or Spanish, mathematics, history, science, religion, music, art, computer and physical education. Latin begins in grade 6. Seventh- and eighth-grade studies in the traditional disciplines are complemented by an elective program in the arts. In the upper school, advanced classes, AP courses or both are available in every discipline, and the arts department offers instruction in studio art, drama, photography, music and art history. A fall orientation program for freshmen involves 12th graders and faculty; seniors act as peer leaders. The athletic program begins swimming instruction in kindergarten and tennis in grade 3, while interscholastic sports commence in grade 7. A student volunteer service organization oversees the work of several groups, and boys and girls in the middle school (grades 5-8) complete a compulsory community service project each year. The student body comes primarily from Manhattan, but three other New York City boroughs—in addition to New Jersey—are also represented.
