Established in 1865, TCS is built on the strength of three pillars: our people, our programme and our place. We recognize that learning and preparation for the future occur not only in the classroom but within the context of our co-curricular and residential programmes as well. Our mission at Trinity College School is to develop habits of the heart and mind for a life of purpose and service.

Campus Life

The tradition of the TCS experience remains committed to a central task: serving young people at a crucial period in their development so they can succeed as responsible adults. A TCS education unfolds in a supportive environment that asks students to be the best they can be. Our most enduring traditions, mutual respect and tolerance, are derived primarily from the friendships among students and from the caring of a committed staff. These traditions form the bedrock of our community.

Student Life

The style and character of TCS have been shaped largely by its students and staff over the last 140 years. Throughout our campus, the names of illustrious graduates and teachers appear on many of our buildings and awards. The stories of these men and women constantly remind us of our unique way of life, which we pass on to a new generation of students each year. While we appreciate TCS's heritage, we also recognize the importance of balancing traditions with open inquiry and a keen eye towards the future.
