We're pleased to announce that Trinity has received full re-accreditation. On Wednesday and Thursday, March 26-27 an AdvancED External Review Team visited Trinity Catholic High School as the final phase of the school’s re-accreditation process. Every five years schools must prepare a report and have a review team visit in our order to receive re-accreditation.
Following the visit, the review team recommended that Trinity Catholic High School retain its full-accreditation for the next five years. The review team interviewed 102 people during the visit, including administration, teachers, staff members, students, parents and community members. Over 25 classroom 25 observations were also conducted.
Powerful Practices singled out by the review team were 1) The commitment of the school’s leadership and staff to a diverse culture based on shared values and beliefs about faith, teaching and learning and support of a challenging equitable education program. 2) The relationship and commitment Trinity Catholic has to the overall North County community. 3) The commitment and support services Trinity Catholic offers to meet the physical, social and emotional needs of all of its students.
Many thanks go out to many people (faculty, staff, students, parents, our friends in the community, etc) for their help with Trinity successfully receiving re-accreditation. We look forward to providing the quality Catholic education expected of us, throughout the next five years.
The Trinity Bookstore has plenty of spring items, along with gift cards good for anything in the bookstore. Stop by in the morning (Mon-Thurs 7:30-8:00a) and see what’s available, or email us at email@example.com for more information.

February Alumni Spotlight
Mark St. George
Rosary Class of 2002
"My time at Rosary (Trinity) was very enjoyable, having received a great education and having formed friendships that have lasted long past my time in the classroom. The A/V Media Club was established during my time at Rosary and I was an early host of the closed-circuit announcement program. My all time favor-
ite teacher is still Mrs. Linda Anthony, who was my French teacher. I always looked forward to her courses because of the amazing bond she had with her students and for her constant encouragement, even when I struggled. I cannot say enough how Trinity has influenced my life and helped me become the person I am today!"
CULTURAL LEADERSHIP PROGRAM
Understanding through the African American – Jewish Experience
During a year-long, educational leadership program, students become social justice activists and change agents, learning through the lens of the African American and Jewish experience. Students meet over the course of a year – 460 hours in all, which includes three weekend retreats, monthly meetings, and a three week summer transformational journey covering much of the east coast and the “deep south.” Cultural Leadership opens students’ eyes to problems that often go unnoticed in our communities, such a racism, anti-Semitism, poverty and oppression. If you are currently a freshman or sophomore (or junior) and would like more information about Cultural Leadership, or an application visit their website (www.culturalleadership.org) or contact the office at 314-725-3222. The deadline for accepting applications has been extended until April 23.
Model Of Justice Award
The Martin Luther King, Jr. Model of Justice Award is an annual award presented to high school students who have demonstrated, through their attitude and work, a commitment to service humanity in the broader community. These students have made social justice a central part of their life and have committed themselves “to the noble struggle for equal rights.”
This year two Trinity students have received this award. Junior Andre Bernaugh was nominated through his parish, Our Lady of Guadalupe and junior Cayla Thurman was nominated through Trinity Catholic High School. Both Andre and Cayla will be honored as a part of the 38th Annual Archdiocesan Mass and Commemoration at the Cathedral Basilica on January 19th. Congratulations to Andre and Cayla!

Trinity Clothing Box
As your family prepares for winter and you are cleaning out closets and drawers, don't forget about the Clothing Box on the lower parking lot at Trinity. If you are discarding old shoes or clothes don't just throw them away. Bring them to Trinity and put them in the Clothing Box. Trinity receives funds for the amount of clothing collected from the box. It's a great way to recycle your clothing and help Trinity at the same time.
