Holy Trinity Episcopal Academy in Melbourne, Florida is an Episcopal coeducational college-preparatory school for grades preschool – 12th. It was founded in 1957. The school operates under the guidance of Holy Trinity Episcopal Church, the Episcopal Diocese of Central Florida and the National Association of Independent Schools.[1]

Structure[edit]

The Academy is divided into the Lower School (3-year-old preschool through grade 6) and Upper School (grades 7-12). It has an academic program[2] and an athletic program.[3]

History[edit]

Holy Trinity Episcopal Academy was established in 1957 as Holy Trinity Parish Day School. Its founding rector was The Reverend Alex Boyer. In 2000, the school expanded, splitting into a Lower School in the original location and an Upper School (high school) located at a new campus in Pineda, which graduated its first class of seniors in 2003.
