Trinity Regional School offers a comprehensive educational program from Nursery School through Eighth Grade.
Early Childhood Program
Our Early Childhood Program consists of a Nursery School for 3 year olds. Pre-Kindergarten for 4 year olds and Full Day Kindergarten. Religion is taught for all classes. Children participate in para-liturgical services, church visits and regional-wide celebrations. Nursery for 3 year olds concentrates on the social and physical growth of early childhood. Arts & Crafts, Music/Dance and Language Development are key elements of this program. The emphasis of Pre-Kindergarten for 4 year olds is the intellectual, physical, social, spiritual and emotional growth of each child in a risk free environment. Kindergarten lays the foundation for a child to become a thinking, caring student. It provides the material, experience, relationships and opportunities to meet the spiritual, social, intellectual, emotional and physical needs of the young child. Included in the Kindergarten Program is instruction in Music, Library, Gym and Computers.

Trinity Regional adheres to New York State and Diocesan guidelines in all subject areas. Our curriculum is enhanced by classes in Computers, Foreign Language, Art, Music, Library Studies and Physical Education. Remedial and Gifted Programs are offered to those who qualify.

The Gospel message of Jesus pervades all aspects of student life. Students receive daily instruction in Catholic theology and participate in daily prayer, monthly liturgies and seasonal para-liturgical experiences. Priests from our six parishes preside at all liturgies. Moral education is woven into daily lessons and activities, including skills of decision-making to aid the maturing child. An appreciation of self, others, and all life is instilled in our students.
