Admissions Information

In order to be admitted into Trinity School, it is required for a student to have an medically diagnosed learning difference or an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) from a previous education establishment. The Admission process at Trinity School allows families and educators to work together to determine which students will benefit most from our unique academic and social programs.  In the first phase, our expert committee members carefully collect and review testing, psychological, medical, and educational records. In the second phase, families are introduced to school faculty in a classroom setting to conduct basic observations of the prospective student. This process is called Shadowing and lasts three days.   Once admitted, students are subjected to a 90-day probationary period to make sure they are a good fit for Trinity School.

Non-Discrimination
Trinity School does not discriminate in its admissions and enrollment practices, based on race, ethnic background, health condition, socio-economic status, or gender for the students which attend grades K–12 in Oklahoma City.
Student Requirements
Trinity School serves children who exhibit different learning styles, including dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia, ADHD, autism, and or sensory processing issues, anxiety, and developmental or intellectual delays.

Trinity School is not equipped nor is its faculty/staff trained to work with students experiencing severe cognitive, auditory, emotional/behavioral, or physical disabilities.

Age Requirements

According to Section 14 of the School Laws of Oklahoma, the following age requirements must be met for admission: 

  • Kindergarten – To be admitted to kindergarten, a student must have turned 5 years of age on or before September 1st.
  • First Grade – To be admitted to 1st grade, a student must have turned 6 years of age on or before September 1st and cannot be older than 7 years of age.
  • Conditional Enrollment – Occasionally, students may be admitted under special circumstances, and in those cases we offer a conditional contract. The contract will outline behavioral or performance expectations that the student must meet within a specified time frame (e.g., four to six weeks) to continue with the program. If the conditions are met, the contract may be extended. A decision to extend or not extend the contract is the sole discretion of the Head of School.
  • Trinity School recognizes that some students have learning needs that the school is not equipped to meet. Because we want these students’ needs met in the most appropriate way possible, Trinity School will decline to accept or retain students who have learning needs which will not be met by its methodology, or who demonstrate cognitive limitations that make steady academic progress within Trinity School’s program unlikely.

 

Admission Priority
First priority will be given to our current students re-enrolling in Trinity School and their siblings that have a diagnosed learning difference. Re-enrollment packets are sent to the families of current students each year in January and the re-enrollment deadline falls in late February. After that open enrollment begins in March, applications are accepted and reviewed.  The number of students accepted each year depends on available space in each grade level.
Tuition & Fees

Trinity School is a tuition-based private school that receives 98% of its operating budget from student tuition, with no state or federal funding. Our tuition-based approach allows us to provide unique programs that cater to the individual learning differences of our students, and to offer smaller class sizes for increased teacher interaction.

Trinity School values and seeks students from diverse economic backgrounds. In order to assist families, Trinity provides flexible payment plans and need-based financial aid when donor funds are available. Additionally, scholarship opportunities are available, including the Lindsey Nicole Henry Scholarship.

The Lindsey Nicole Henry (LNH) Scholarship Act of 2010 authorizes the parent or guardian of an Oklahoma public school student with a disability, who is served under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), to request an LNH Scholarship award for their child to attend a participating private school, approved by the State Board of Education, to serve learning disability needs. The Lindsey Nicole Henry Scholarship deos not provide full tuition. Trinity School at Edgemere is approved by the State Board of Education to educate LNH scholarship participants.

Open House & Tours

We understand the decision to join a new school is significant for families. So, at Trinity School we make every effort to help prospective students and their families get to know our school before they are admitted. We host an annual open house and offer guided tours year-round.

Open House

Trinity School has an Admissions Open House each year on the first Thursday of February. This event falls about a month ahead of admission application deadlines so those interested in applying to Trinity School have an opportunity to visit Trinity and meet our educators and students prior to making any decision.  It is open to the general public as well as our current families and students. The event is always hosted from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. and allows prospective students the opportunity to freely explore the school and meet teachers.
