Holy Trinity School provides a distinguished academic program that focuses on the education of the whole child:  intellectual, emotional, physical, moral, spiritual, liturgical, and sacramental.  Holy Trinity promotes the joy of active, student-centered learning with creative and critical thinking through an encouraging and nurturing environment.  Students are challenged but offered the individualized support necessary for them to excel in ways that match their own unique development.  Holy Trinity takes an integrated approach to learning; applying students’ skills and building upon their knowledge in a variety of settings.  Core subjects taught in the classroom — Language Arts, Mathematics, Social Studies and Science — are thoughtfully complemented through art, library, music, physical education, religious education, Spanish, and technology.   Individualized attention for students is made possible through Holy Trinty’s low student-to teacher ratio.

Holy Trinity School follows the standards-based curriculum of the Archdiocese of Washington DC.  The Catholic Schools in the Archdiocese of Washington DC, rooted in Gospel Values and the teaching mission of the Church, are learning communities of faith and service dedicated to educational equity and excellence for all students.  To access downloadable copies of the curriculum standards by grade for Holy Trinity School, please visit the Curriculum & ADW Standards page.  This link will also lead you to specific HTS curriculum guidelines by grade and subject.
