Since 1984, Trinity Christian School has been an integral ministry of Trinity Baptist Church with the purpose of continuing the mission of our church: “to glorify God by being and making disciples of Jesus Christ.” This objective compels TCS to train its students spiritually, academically, and socially for lifelong service to Christ.
Trinity Christian School accomplishes this goal in three ways that parallel Christ’s development in Luke 2:52. First of all, the administration and staff consider themselves not as replacements but as partners with the parents in the spiritual formation process. The school also chooses disciple-oriented discipline techniques in an attempt to reach the heart of the students instead of simply changing an undesirable behavior. Bible doctrine and principles are faithfully presented, but all subject areas are also taught through the lens of a Biblical worldview so that our students can know how they should live and how they can rightly apply God’s Word to the culture and context in which they find themselves today.
Secondly, Trinity develops its students by challenging them to increase in wisdom by means of a regionally accredited academic program that meets and exceeds the requirements of the state of New Hampshire. TCS employs a combination of Christian textbooks from A Beka Books and BJU Press to support its spiritual emphases and to provide a traditional approach to its classroom instruction. Instructors utilize these books and their own experience, not just merely to promote rote memory, but more importantly to develop problem-solving and critical thinking skills. The Lord has blessed TCS with a beautiful facility that includes large classrooms, most of which are outfitted with projection screens for presentations. A science laboratory provides students with hands-on opportunities to put into practice what they learned during lectures. Trinity Christian School is also able to offer dual enrollment courses.
Lastly, TCS provides its students with opportunities for social development as students learn to use their abilities for the Lord in activities such as athletics, music, choir, hand-bells, and art classes. Girls have the opportunity to compete in volleyball and basketball, while guys can engage in soccer and basketball. All middle school and high school students are able each year to compete in a regional fine arts competition, and high school students may also travel to the American Association of Christian Schools’ National Fine Arts Competition each April. Older students also mentor and disciple younger students in our BIG-little discipleship program. TCS students take Dramatic Speech and Public Speaking courses so that they learn to comfortably and accurately communicate their thoughts orally and in writing.
Trinity Christian School hires faculty who embrace faith in Christ and look to nurture students in that faith while teaching our students from a distinctively Christian worldview. All aspects of education at TCS incorporate God’s power displayed in creation, man’s fallen nature as a result of his sin, Christ’s redemption of fallen man through His death on the cross, and God’s power displayed through the resurrection of His Son.
Deuteronomy 6 and Ephesians 6 demonstrate to Christian families that their children are the initial point where the disciple-making process should commence. If you would like to consider partnering with TCS to help train your child(ren) in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.
