We designed a school focused on helping students succeed. Look at what happened.
100%. Is that really possible?
Absolutely. Success is not accidental. It is the result of patiently following carefully designed plans.
Our students do not succeed by accident.
We specifically designed TrinityPrep for that very purpose. Here is how we did it.
Students had come to us from other schools, struggling.
Then after enrolling at TrinityPrep they shocked us.
• These students were intelligent, creative, and filled with potential.
• But the system had failed them instead of helping them.
• Their confidence had been undermined and success was eluding them.
So we came up with an idea to approach school differently.
We designed a learning environment to help students:
- Increase their confidence
- Take greater initiative and personal responsibility
- Develop skills for success in the classroom and beyond
We identified three steps to take as a school to accomplish this.
The steps were small but very significant.
Step 1 – Establishing The Right Environment
“Peaceful & Patient”
Learning is best achieved when students feel safe and secure. However, according to Robert Leahy PhD, “The average high school student today experiences the same level of stress as a psychiatric patient in the 1950s.”
Many of our students were pressured and stressed at previous schools. In our peaceful, patient environment they regain their focus on learning, their confidence, and their vision for their future. Peace and patience are primary for student success.
Step 2 – Taking The Right Approach
We take a positive approach with our students. We recognize how capable of success they are and approach them that way. Teachers are passionate about their subjects and students gain a renewed love for subjects they often learned to dislike at previous schools. The increased motivation and initiative this brings, and the positive approach our teachers use empowers students towards academic success.
Step 3 – Maintaining The Right Size
We mandated a smaller classroom size – averaging 15 students – so our teachers could provide students with individualized attention. In this setting, teachers can discover students’ unique learning styles and creatively engage them in mastery of concepts and developing skills to excel at the university level. There is no substitute for personalized instruction.
These steps were small but quickly made TrinityPrep unique.
