History & Traditions

Ad astra per aspera. To the stars through challenge.

In 1966, a dedicated group of Orlando community leaders led by the late Reverend Canon A. Rees Hay wanted to provide a top-quality, independent secondary education for students in Central Florida. They established Trinity Preparatory School, where classes began in 1968 for 173 students in grades seven through 12. We have grown to include grades six through 12 with 857 students this year.

Trinity Preparatory School has never compromised its commitment to a rigorous curriculum, a highly qualified and caring faculty, a low student-teacher ratio, a strong athletic program, an outstanding fine arts program, and an exceptional college guidance program.

We are honored as the only Malone School in Florida, one of 50 exceptional independent schools in the country. The Malone Scholar program provides access to need-based scholarships for students and the Malone Schools Online Network (MSON), where we offer even more advanced courses with other Malone Schools throughout the country.


We're accredited by the Florida Council of Independent Schools (FCIS) and a member of the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS) and the National Association of Episcopal Schools (NAES).
