New school quadruples enrollment in first few years
When Holy Trinity Classical Christian School opened its doors for the first time for the 2012-2013 school year, there were 50 students in grades K-5th. This year, the school welcomed 189 new and returning students in grades K-8th. When Holy Trinity preschoolers start their school year next month, total enrollment numbers are projected to reach 240.
That’s quite a bit of growth.
The student body is not the only growth the school has experienced. Holy Trinity’s teaching staff for grades K-8th has more than doubled in size, maintaining small class sizes averaging 14 children, with a faculty/student ratio of 1:10. Administrative positions also saw growth with the addition of a lower school principal, financial administrator, and communications director in 2015.
The school credits the growth to some key factors, such as strong community support, a talented pool of committed faculty, dedicated parents, and students who thrive in the joyful classical learning environment offered at Holy Trinity. Headmaster Rev. Chad E. Lawrence commented, “We are honored to fill families’ desire for a classical Christian education in Beaufort; it’s a privilege to partner in their children’s education.”
Perhaps Holy Trinity parent Andrea Cooler offers the best explanation. “My children adore Holy Trinity. Our school is filled with joy and fosters a love of learning and sense of community that is contagious to nearly everyone who enters. It’s no surprise that we are growing exponentially.”
