Grade Notations are for the 2020-2021 academic year.

NEW TST Summer Academy T-shirt

All students will receive a free T-shirt on their first day of class. You will be able to select your T-shirt size when you register online.

Class Sizes

A minimum number of students is required for a class to “make,” unless otherwise indicated. If the enrollment for the class does not reach the minimum number, you will be notified of the cancellation. If a class is canceled due to lack of enrollment, a full refund will be given for that class.


Each class has a separate cost and schedule as listed. Full tuition is required at the time of registration. Class confirmation will be sent shortly after your registration is received. If you need to cancel a class prior to one week of the start date, a $50 cancellation fee will be charged for each class canceled, and the remainder of your tuition will be refunded. Within one week of a class, there will be no refunds given. Cancellations must be made in writing, through mail or email, to cabernathy@trinityschooloftexas.com.

If your child will be attending Summer Academy, we encourage you to send your child with a labeled reusable water bottle to stay hydrated throughout the day.


Students will be served a snack in Summer Academy. If your child has any food allergies or concerns, you may denote those on the Health Form during the registration process.

Campus Policy

Trinity School of Texas requires that all children be supervised while on campus. All participants must be enrolled in a supervised program while on Trinity’s campus.
