Trinity Catholic Academy
It is my immense pleasure to welcome you to our new website!
Mrs. Letourneau and Ms. Casey have worked their fingers to the bone in concert with a diligent and conscientious webmaster, Dominic de Souza, at Enable Web Design to present a fresh-looking and branded website.
Enable Web Design, based in Virginia, is owned by one of our alums, Mary Barbale, and her husband, Jeremy Minick. I invite you to peruse it, hoping that you find it easy to navigate and enjoy all it has to offer.
The very first tab in this section is a direct connection to our Facebook page, and the second tab contains our calendar of upcoming events. This third tab in particular is a place where you will receive messages from me or other school personnel, reminders, shout-outs, and other tidbits of information.
Speaking to that, I am hoping to see as many of you as possible on the evening of September 11 when we will have our CORI class at 6:30pm and first PTO meeting of the year at 7:00pm.
It will be an opportunity for you to meet your brand-new PTO Executive Board and hear what they have in store for the coming year. It will also be your opportunity to hear the yearly cyber bullying training offered by a representative from the District Attorney’s office.
Beginning on September 24th, we will be launching the new diocesan-wide standardized testing program for grades 3-7—completely online. No more 2 weeks of heavy testing. In theory, each grade should complete testing in a 2-3 hour time period.
The yearly Catholic Schools Appeal takes place the weekend of September 29 and 30. Please encourage family members and friends to be as generous as possible in this effort to gather donations to Catholic schools, and to Trinity in particular.
Once again, welcome and enjoy!

The administration and staff go above and beyond what they have to do to insure that our children receive the best education possible. They not only teach academics but help to instill morals as well.”
Frequently Asked Questions
Does Trinity Catholic Academy follow the Common Core State Standards?
Although select elements of the CCSS are incorporated into our teaching, Catholic schools in the Worcester Diocese do not endorse the CCSS. The Catholic Schools Office has done a great deal of work to write standards for our Catholic schools, modeled after the standards of the Archdiocese of Phoenix, Arizona and the Archdiocese of Hartford, Connecticut.
How involved are Trinity students in religious activities?
Absolutely! Our students attend daily Mass at St. Mary Church once per week. In addition, each of our classes is responsible for preparing a monthly Mass or Prayer Service, which can include greeting attendees at the Mass, Readings, and special performances of the Gospel Reading.
Students in grades 2-8 also have the opportunity to be a part of our Choir that sings at Masses and in various places in the community.
What extra-curricular activities does Trinity offer?
We have a great variety of activities to choose from. For the athlete, in Fall we offer Soccer, during the winter we have both boys’ and girls’ Varsity and Junior Varsity basketball, Varsity and Junior Varsity Cheerleading, and Running Club in the spring. Additionally, we have a chapter of the National Junior Honor Society, a Faith in Action Team (FIAT), our Get Involved, Value Everyone group (GIVE) that makes things for charity, and Student Council.
Is there financial aid available?
Yes, there is. In early spring parents of registered children may apply for diocesan financial aid that comes from contributions to the yearly Forward in Faith campaign. Parents may submit an online application to the FACTS Management Company. Parents are usually notified of any awards by the first week of June.
Does Trinity adhere to a strict disciplinary code?
Yes, we do. Contained in our mission statement are the words “respect, compassion, and service”. Our faculty and administration strive to teach our students the true meaning of those words through their interaction. For a complete look at our disciplinary code, please refer to our Parent/Student Handbook under “Conduct”.
“Our two children have attended since pre-school.
“We cannot be more vocal in our recommendation of this school. The education is top notch, and a moral background to boot. We are complimented wherever we go about how well behaved our children are.”
