About The Trinity Preparatory School:
Trinity​ ​Preparatory​ ​School​ ​is​ ​an​ ​independent, ​coeducational, ​​college​ ​preparatory​ ​school​ that helps students excel in college and in life, contribute to their communities, lead in a changing society, and grow spiritually. In alignment with our mission, we affirm our commitment to our core values: Trinity Family; Educational Excellence, both Academic and Extracurricular; Leadership and Character Development; and Faith and Spirituality.

Founded in 1968, a dedicated group of Orlando community leaders led by the late Reverend Canon A. Rees Hay wanted to provide a quality, independent secondary education for students in Central Florida. As a result, they established the Trinity Preparatory School in grades six through twelve. Affiliated with the Episcopal Church, we welcome families and students from all faith traditions, cultures, and backgrounds, knowing that we are all enhanced by diversity.

Our devoted and notable faculty and staff are leaders in their field who share their knowledge and expertise with others at various professional development opportunities worldwide. Their dedication is demonstrated to our students, families, and communities both inside and outside of the classroom with a balance of academic rigor and wellness. Trinity’s student body and families reflect the world as they travel from the greater Orlando area and across the nation to take part in the Trinity experience.
