Junior high students at TCS get involved! Leading worship, learning to scuba, performing in a musical, serving the community – even sailing along the West Coast – these are just some of the opportunities Trinity offers. In addition, our one-to-one Chromebook program and innovative Google Docs for Education initiative ensure our students have an academic advantage and are at the forefront of ever-changing educational technology. Our highly reputable Junior High school also offers many servant-based leadership opportunities beginning in Grade 7. Opportunities include volunteering for various charities including Calgary Drop-In Centre, Inter-Faith Food bank and Samaritan's Purse.
Trinity’s academics are designed to challenge students at all levels, with differentiated instruction, small classes, and support for unique learning needs. We know that in junior high, your child’s peers are of critical importance. Our dedicated teachers strive to ensure positive relationships among students, as well as between students and staff, and even between grade levels with our “buddy” program.
While following the Alberta Curriculum, we teach through a biblical worldview, allowing students to pursue academic excellence while gaining the skills and understanding necessary to take their faith to the wider world. Beyond the core courses of Language Arts, Math, Social Studies, Science and French/Spanish, we offer several great options: photography, outdoor education, art, drama, praise band, handicrafts, and foods.
We worship together, with our student praise band kicking off Junior High chapel once a week. Every fall, Trinity’s Grade 9 students sail along the West Coast with the SALTS program, building faith and enhancing community. The Grade 9 year culminates with a joyful celebration; we recognize the distinctive gifts of each student as they move on to high school. At Trinity, we help students be the best they can be, for God’s glory!
Junior High Retreat
Every year starts with a few days away for the junior high classes at a retreat. At this retreat the students strengthen their bonds with other and their relationship with God. It is a fun time of activities (canoeing, rock climbing, games etc.), chapel and, of course, a few practical jokes.

Last Night at SeaPosted on Oct 20 2016
We woke up this morning with the sun shining in the cloudless blue sky. The fall colours in the surrounding forest, the gentle breeze, and the birds chirping spoke of the glory of God. Students had a large breakfast and then were split into their…
A Calm Day on the WaterPosted on Oct 19 2016
This morning came quickly for many of our tired sailors, but not quickly enough for those on watch in the cold morning breeze. It is very encouraging to see the students take on responsibility for their night watches, waking each other and taking watches…
Goodnight from Lyall HarbourPosted on Oct 18 2016
After a damp night of anchor watches, the Forward Watch group on each boat started the day by swabbing the deck and polishing the bronze aboard. By the end of the week, students should be adept at washing floors and polishing the precious metals around…
Settling in at Bedwell HarbourPosted on Oct 17 2016
After an incredible day on the water, we are just settling into Bedwell Harbour just off of the Pender Islands. We started our day with a dry walk to the boats and were able to organize and clamber aboard before the rain started. While our skipper…
