Charlotte Mason Education for the Rio Grande Valley
Over the course of their school years, your child will spend roughly 12,000 hours in a classroom. Second only to his parents, a child’s teachers will have the greatest impact upon his formation. What are your goals for your child? What sort of classroom do you envision for your child? What sort of family life do you hope to cultivate?
In our classrooms, we will love your child and value him as a person created in the image of God. We will inspire her by exposing her to the good, the true, and the beautiful through our rich and rigorous curriculum. We will hold him to a high standard as he learns to work hard and to delight in struggle. We will help her to form the habits of mind and body necessary for success in life. We will assign work that is challenging and worthy; work for which they may be proud. Every day at The Trinity School, your child will calculate, solve, attend, explore, ponder, recite, serve, create and sing. At the end of the day, we will return your child back to you with a full mind and a full heart.
Over the weeks, months and years at The Trinity School – you will begin to notice welcome effects on your family life at home – children share around the dinner table, with delighted eyes, the wonders of insects learned in their entomology lesson or the inspiration gained from hearing one of the symphonies of Joseph Haydn. They can often be found outdoors surrounded by “old friends” they have become acquainted with through Nature Study.
The richness of The Trinity School becomes a springboard for all of life for our families. As we grow in community with one another, we encourage each other along the way. Parents gather to discuss great books, mothers gather for coffee and conversation, whole families enjoy times of service, prayer, and recreation together. It is a lovely way of life.
