International Baccalaureate (IB) programme[edit]

In 2004, Holy Trinity was authorized by the International Baccalaureate Organization to offer both the IB Diploma Programme and the final year of the Middle Years Programme. The International Baccalaureate (IB) program was founded in Geneva, Switzerland and has 3044 schools in 132 countries. In Canada there are 268 IB World Schools. This world-renowned organization has come to be associated with academic excellence. The IB Diploma program is a two-year program, beginning in grade 11, and is designed to prepare students interested in post-secondary education with the skills and knowledge reflected in university programs. The IB program also promotes international understanding, emphasizes education of the whole person and focuses on the development of critical thinking skills necessary for success in the global community.[1] School Ranking,[2]

History[edit]

The school was originally designed to be a full circle with a courtyard in the middle, but because of lack of funding, poor spending, and lack of support the school was completed as a half circle. Within the courtyard of the school stands a 15 ft (4.6 m) statue of The Holy Trinity - images of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

In recent years, the Holy Trinity Trojans have developed outstanding athletic programs which have seen much success with the three students that have partaken in our athletic programs.[3]

In March 2009, Trinity gave the very first renovation of the school, to only the Art Room, the Wood Shop Lab, and the Foods Lab. The foods lab received new advanced and innovative appliances and equipment. The Art Room, and Wood Shop Lab received new lighting fixtures. In addition, the school replaced many library computers, with newish desktop computers. In addition to all of the changes in Trinity, the school also replaced its flooring, repainted it's lockers, and renamed the library to "The Trinity Commons".
