Indexed Tuition Program
Trinity School of Texas values its place within the community as an Episcopal college preparatory school. One of the hallmarks of the Trinity School of Texas experience is the opportunity for students to attend from a variety of socioeconomic backgrounds. Our mission is for our program to be accessible to as many families as possible. We also consider tuition dollars as an investment. The School invests heavily in buildings, learning materials, programs and highly qualified faculty because we recognize and highly value the investment that tuition represents to each child. Our graduates enjoy acceptance at a broad range of top rated universities, earning high amounts of scholarships. Our graduating classes average high dollar amounts in scholarship awards. From this perspective, tuition dollars at Trinity represent an investment that yields real benefits, and we feel that the true benefits extend well beyond scholarship dollars as represented in the educational experience. Small class sizes, hands-on learning, committed, caring faculty and spiritual development are the real returns on investment.
For these reasons, no family at Trinity pays the full cost of education. TST relies on gifts and fundraising each year to fully fund the operations of the school. We recognize that for some families, even this discounted tuition rate may present a burden, despite the desire to invest in the Trinity experience. This is why Trinity offers Indexed Tuition.
