Instituted in September 1991, Trinity Academy is a Catholic elementary school, grades pre-kindergarten through eight, which was created and supported by the parishes of St. Aloysius in Caldwell, Notre Dame in North Caldwell, and Our Lady of the Blessed Sacrament in Roseland.
All Catholic elementary schools within the Archdiocese of Newark follow the Archdiocesan plan, Lighting the Way and are managed by the Archdiocese Educational Department under the direction of the Superintendent of Catholic Education, Dr. Margaret Dames.
Hallmarks of Trinity Academy include:
Trinity Academy has long had a collegial relationship with Caldwell University. Countless undregraduate students have been mentored by Trinity Academy faculty members as part of the teacher training process, to obtain a degree, and teacher certification. In 2014 Trinity embarked on another partnership with Caldwell University. The goal of this partnership is to apply the latest in instruction techniques and academic learning throughout Trinity Academy while offering university students pursuing their masters or doctoral degrees opportunities to work interactively in an educational environment. We are excited about this new endeavor and believe it will further strengthen our goal of providing the best education to each of our students.
On September 29, 2015, Trinity Academy was awarded the prestigious 2015 National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence Award. Trinity Academy was one of 335 schools across 44 states and one of only 50 private schools nationwide selected for the award. (To learn more about Trinity Academy's Blue Ribbon Award click here).
As a Christ-centered Catholic academy, Trinity Academy endeavors to unite our students in respect, compassion and concern for themselves and their world. We strive to bring Christ’s love to those we serve as we support their spiritual, emotional, academic and physical growth. We aspire to become stronger in faith as we share the Gospel message through word, work and service.
