Holy Trinity School
Founded in 1818, Holy Trinity School (HTS) is one of the few coeducational elementary schools in the Jesuit tradition in the United States. HTS welcomes all to the Jesuit Catholic traditions of educational excellence, the service of faith, and the promotion of justice. Your support allows us to serve more than 300 racially, ethnically and socio-economically diverse children in pre-kindergarten through eighth grade. Around $675,000 in need-based tuition assistance is distributed annually. Holy Trinity was one of 50 private schools in the country to be awarded the National Blue Ribbon for Excellence by the Department of Education in 2016, and it has been named a Top Workplace by the Washington Post in 2017 and 2018. With your help we strive to achieve three main goals for our students and families: 1) integrate Catholic faith traditions and Jesuit identity into curriculum and activities that promote student understanding and provide opportunities to put faith into action; 2) provide instruction and resources that foster individual student growth and overall achievement; and 3) nurture a welcoming and dynamic community that includes diverse perspectives and experiences. We believe discernment aligns our decisions with our values: Courage, Humility, Compassion, Justice, Gratitude and Perseverance.
Your contribution to our Annual Fund helps cover the gap between what it costs to educate one child and our per child tuition. Your gift thus enables us to continue to provide our students with a faith-based education steeped in academic excellence.
The Gavigan Program, a current use scholarship fund, provides an education at Holy Trinity School for low-income family students who have academic motivation and potential for personal growth. This scholarship program provides, in addition to full tuition assistance, support services including tutoring, mentoring, summer school, after-school tutoring/homework assistance, and other services as needed that will help the children succeed at Holy Trinity.
The Class Gift is a Holy Trinity School tradition since 1995, given to the school by the families of the graduating class. A parent committee works with the principal and teachers to determine a gift that would be the most beneficial to the school.
