The Chill Is On!!

Parents, please make sure your children are properly dressed for the weather.  We are going to be outside for morning recess and lunchtime recess for as long as possible.  Fresh air and exercise helps to get the blood flowing to the brain, making children ready for the hard work their brains will be doing all day.  If we feel they are not properly dressed for the weather, children will need to stay inside, which means they miss out on all the fun.

On Thursday, our students will be taking part in Eucharistic Adoration at the Ministry Center Chapel–a new experience for them.  Fr Ken will instruct us in the way of Adoration in preparation for Thursday.  Having quiet, prayerful time in the presence of our Lord is so very important for our faith formation, both children and adults.

We have the privilege of having the Franklin Zoo visit us on Friday afternoon.  They will bring instructors (and their friends from the animal kingdom) who will instruct our students about how animals use their senses, how they adapt to their environment, how ecosystems work, and about endangered species.  We are so very grateful to an anonymous benefactor for sponsoring this program.

The Time and Talent Festival takes place this weekend at Notre Dame Church after each of the masses.  Many wonderful ministries, including TCA, will be featured.  Once mass is over, please make your way around the church and take a look at all the wonderful experiences this parish has to offer.

The 8th grade is conducting its pie and cookie dough fundraiser.  Please send in your orders no later than Friday, October 19.

FYI…an Alumni Basketball Game will take place at TCA on Saturday, October 27.

Have a beautiful week!

“We have been a part of the Trinity family for 8 years and wouldn’t change a thing.

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.”
