At Holy Trinity, we take a STREAM approach to instruction for our students. We believe that together science, technology, religion, engineering, arts and math provide balanced academic excellence with faith-based morals as a foundation.
STREAM takes STEM to the next level: it allows students to connect their learning in these critical areas with arts practices, faith elements, design principles, and high standards to provide students a greater palette of learning at their disposal for the rest of their lives. STREAM removes limitations and replaces them with wonder, critique, inquiry, innovation and making meaning. Suddenly, a hands-on science or math activity includes artistic ventures and religious context. This can allow students who don’t feel scientifically or mathematically inclined to feel more comfortable representing their knowledge and beliefs.
Our innovative classrooms use technology and hands-on learning activities that align to educational standards, making us a 6-time Governor’s Scale-Up STEM Award recipient!
- STEM Lab: Students visit this newly renovated maker-space once a week to engage in coding, engineering, design, and robotics
- Technology-rich Environment: Interactive boards in each classroom, one-to-one chromebooks/tablets in classrooms, and blended learning opportunities
- Religion at our Core: Faith-based learning includes daily religion class, weekly all school liturgy, faith-retreats, and seasonal prayer services
- Extracurricular Opportunities: Lego Club, Art Club, Coding Club
- Artist in Residence Week: Community artist brought in to engage in a schoolwide project
- Illustrative Math: A problem-based core curriculum that develops students’ mathematical thinking skills through questioning, discussion, and realworld contexts and connections
We have a staff of exceptional teachers who through ongoing workshops, classes, and conferences build their knowledge to provide the hands-on STREAM learning activities for students. They take the time to understand individual student needs and plan learning activities so all can succeed through application, creation, ingenuity and making meaningful learning connections. These meaningful connections help students see real world applications, helping them connect the dots between what’s happening in the classroom and their future career pathways.
All of this ensures that today we are educating our students in a way that helps them manage the many dynamic changes happening for all of the tomorrows of the 21st century.
