“To educate the whole student academically, physically, spiritually, and socially as evidenced by the realization of each student’s individual God-given life purpose and the development of the spiritual gifts necessary to become civic and academic leaders.”
Statement of Faith
Trinity Christian Academy accepts the Holy Scriptures as the revealed Word of God, the all-sufficient rule of faith and practice, for the purpose of maintaining general unity. The Scriptures, both the Old and New Testaments, are verbally inspired of God and are the revelation of God to man.
We believe the Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ as Scripture declares: His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His substitutionary work done on the cross, His bodily resurrection from the dead, His exaltation to the right hand of God.
We understand that man was created good and upright, for God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness.” However man, by voluntary transgression, fell and thereby incurred not only physical death, but also spiritual death, which is separation from God. Man’s only hope of redemption is through the shed blood of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. Salvation is received through repentance toward God and faith toward the Lord Jesus Christ.
The educational philosophy of Trinity Christian Academy is based on a God-centered view that all truth is God’s truth, and that the Bible is the inspired and the only infallible authoritative Word of God, which contains this truth. Our aim:
- for the Bible to be woven throughout the total curriculum
- to encompass the academic, physical, spiritual and social
- to promote high academic standards and skills in creative and critical thinking
- to enable the student to pursue post-secondary education of his or her choosing
- to cooperate closely with parents in every phase of the student’s development
Trinity Education Center, which became Trinity Christian Academy in 1994, was founded in 1980 to provide a quality Christian education for the children of Trinity Church and the surrounding northeast area of San Antonio. In the first year, the school offered a pre-school and kindergarten program with hopes of growing each year. In the next school year, there were approximately 60 children in Kindergarten through the 4th grade with four teachers.
The school grew to serve students through the 8th grade, until 1992. At that time, the parents of those students preparing to enter high school requested of the school and church administration the addition a high school program. Beginning in 1993, a new high school grade was added each year with the first class of seniors graduating in 1997.
During the years leading to the first graduating class, Trinity began preparing for accreditation from the Association of Christian Schools International. Accreditation was granted in the summer of 1998.
As the school population continued to grow, more space and improved facilities were needed. In 1999, the leadership and congregation of Trinity Church committed to relocating and began a search for adequate property to build a new church and school campus. Thirty acres of prime real estate in northeast San Antonio was purchased. The four school buildings were constructed first and the church and school families moved onto the campus in November of 2002.
Development has continued into the present day with the addition of computer lab, athletic field, tennis courts, outdoor picnic areas and playground expansions.
