Our History

Trinity Preparatory School – established 1994

In the late 1980s, Bruce Corwin, a former high school teacher and football coach left his job with IBM to return to his first love: education. He launched an educational services and tutoring business in the SouthPark area of Charlotte that became highly successful. Because of that success, within a few years he was invited to consult with other educators across the nation, training them to help students learn more effectively.

It was at that time that Bruce began dreaming of starting a private school that was positive, supportive, and focused on helping students succeed academically and beyond. In 1994 he established a private high school serving the Charlotte region. This school would become Trinity Preparatory School (we call it TrinityPrep for short) in the late 1990s.

In 1998 Doug Corwin left his professional services career to join his father in developing TrinityPrep, eventually taking over as Head of School in 2011. During the past two decades TrinityPrep has become a valuable resource to Charlotte areas families, serving their educational needs and helping their students find success.

Over the past few years we have gained rapport among counselors and professionals working with teens because of the transformations that occur in our positive, encouraging, learning environment and the success of our college preparation program. It has been a wonderful journey so far and we are excited about the future of helping many more Charlotte area students find success in the classroom and beyond.
