Lower School

Holy Trinity School provides a distinguished program that focuses on the education of the whole child. A key aspect of the curriculum is Cura Personalis, a Latin term for “care of the person.” It is the conscious commitment to meet the academic, physical, social-emotional, and spiritual needs of the individual learner. Influenced by the charism of St. Ignatius, it is a hallmark of Jesuit education.
