The College Counseling Office helps ensure that Trinity Prep graduates continue their education at colleges worldwide. Our primary criterion for guiding students through the maze of postsecondary choices is how well the school “fits” their unique goals. Trinity Prep employs three full-time college counselors and one full-time office coordinator to assist our students and their families.
Upper School Programming Examples:
Student Workshops, Family Nights, Cup of College Series, Financial Aid Night, What Really Matters in Your College Search Presentation, Visual & Performing Arts Night, NCAA Night, including regular exposure to fairs and admission representatives from colleges worldwide.

"Whether it’s revising my resume or researching many colleges, TPS’s college counselors never failed to have my back. Being incredibly supportive, they encouraged me to pursue my life-long dream: becoming a physician. While simultaneously researching BS/MD programs and different universities, my college counselor helped me craft “my best self” through all my applications. Thanks to TPS’s impressive CCOs, I got accepted into my dream program and school. I cannot thank Trinity’s CCO enough for the support and dedication they have given me. "
"The college counseling program helped me with every step of the process. My counselor took the time to get to know me, and found schools that fit me both academically and athletically. Thanks to my counselor pushing me to leave no stone unturned, I found the perfect school that I may not have otherwise known about. I am excited to be attending a great college while also being able to be a member of their athletic program. I am so thankful for everything the counseling office has done for me."
