Trinity High School is a private, Catholic, coeducational high school located in Manchester, New Hampshire. It is operated by the Roman Catholic Diocese of Manchester.

As of 2010, 445 students attended Trinity High School. Every member of the class of 2010 was accepted into college. It was the fourth year in a row this has occurred.[5]


The school opened on September 9, 1970, as part of a merger of three Catholic high schools in Manchester: Bishop Bradley High School, Immaculata High School, and Saint Anthony's High School. The only remaining Catholic high school in the city, Ste. Marie's, remained independent but eventually closed in 1973.

The school's college preparatory curriculum features a Catholic emphasis. Students of all faiths are welcome to attend, but classes on the Catholic faith are required of all students.

It is accredited by the National Catholic Educational Association.

Sports and extracurricular clubs[edit]

The school competes at the Class "L" level in 21 boys', girls' and coed varsity sports. The football team currently competes in Division II. The teams are known by the mascot name "Pioneers".

The school fields a FIRST Robotics Team, which competed on the national level in 2011.[6] The Team now fields a VEX Robotics team that competes on the local and world level. [7]

On March 21, after two consecutive championship losses, the Trinity Pioneers won the 2009 Class "L" basketball championship at UNH's Lundholm Gym and again in 2013, this time versus Bishop Guertin High School.[8][9] On March 17, 1985 won 1985 Class "L" Basketball Championship vs. Dover High School at UNH's Lundholm Gym
