Holy Trinity Episcopal School embraces the Episcopal traditions and principles that are recognized by the National Association of Episcopal Schools. Each school week begins with Monday morning chapel where students, faculty and staff come together for worship. Daily worship is held in the classroom with a focus on celebrating God's love and grace.
As an independent Episcopal school, Holy Trinity Episcopal School is not governed by an individual parish in our community. We are grateful for the Episcopal Church congregations that have and continue to serve our school. Holy Eucharist is celebrated once a month during our Monday chapel, and often led by clergy from Good Shepherd Episcopal Church in Kingwood or Christ the King Episcopal Church. We welcome parents, grandparents and community friends to join us for chapel, Pet Blessing Day, Ash Wednesday, and other religious celebrations on our campus.
The following is a listing of principles identified by the National Association of Episcopal Schools that distinguish a school as Episcopal. We use these principles as a guide to our foundation as an Episcopal school.
School Worship that is creative, inclusive, draws fully upon the liturgical resources of The Episcopal Church, and is a regular part of school life for all faculty and students.
Community Life, in which reflection, prayer, and matters of the spirit are honored and cultivated and the physical, mental, and emotional health of all are supported and nurtured.
Religous Formation and Study that is meaningful, academically sustantive, and age-appropriate; and in teaching the Christian tradition, fosters dialogue with other faith traditions.
Social Justice, which is the integration of the ideals and concepts of equity, justice, and a just society throughout the life of the school; the embracing and honoring of diversity; and the inclusion of community service and service-learning as an integral part of the life of the school.
Episcopal schools are known for educational excellence. As embodiments of the Christian faith, they serve God in Christ in all persons, regardless of origin, background, ability, or religion and “strive for justice and peace among all people and [to] respect the dignity of every human being.” This intentional pluralism is also a distinguishing hallmark of Episcopal schools.
In addition, Episcopal schools:
Come together for regular chapel and worship services that are creative, age-appropriate, inclusive, and grounded in the traditions of the Episcopal Church.
Value and emphasize a community life in which the physical, spiritual, and emotional health of all are supported and nurtured.
Engage in a study of religion that is academically substantive, age-appropriate, and fosters dialogue with other faith traditions.
Integrate the ideals and concepts of equity, justice, and a just society throughout the life of the school.
