Holy Trinity Classical Christian School Now Enrolling

Holy Trinity Classical Christian School (HTCCS), located at 302 Burroughs Ave., is now enrolling for the 2013-2014 academic school year in grades Pre-k (ages 2 +) through 6th grade. Applications can be found online at www.htccs.org or retrieved in person at the school. Open Houses will be held February 5 and 26, at 6 p.m. for those interested in learning more and wishing to take a school tour. For more information on enrollment, the open houses or tuition assistance, contact HTCCS at (843) 522-0660 or via email at htadmin@htccs.org.

Launched in August 2012, HTCCS offers an educational philosophy shaped by the classical model of the Trivium. This centuries-old method applies the biblical concepts of knowledge, understanding and wisdom to the age-appropriate stages of a child’s development. There are three phases: Grammar (K-5), Logic (6-8) and Rhetoric (grades 9-12). The objective of the classical methodology is to equip students with the tools of learning and the wisdom to apply them to life situations. HTTCS aims to minister across denominational lines.

Headmaster Reverend Chad Lawrence stated, “We are thrilled at the re-enrollment rate of those currently attending Holy Trinity. We know we have something special and believe whole heartedly in our school, its mission, and most importantly, our teachers. We look forward to the school’s impending growth and the impact it will undoubtedly make on our community.”

Committed to an intimate and distinct learning experience, HTCCS plans to maintain an ideal teacher/student ratio, with maximum number of students per class capping at 14. The school’s plans are to offer an additional grade per year until it is able to offer a full pre-K through 12th grade education. Adding to its unique atmosphere is its belief in exposing students to the many riches of Western Civilization including great art, music, literation, scientific achievement and Latin.

HTCCS is led by Lawrence and faculty of eight. Lawrence received his B.A. from Grove City College in Grove City, PA. After two years as a missionary, he entered the teaching profession in California earning a multiple subjects teaching credential through the California State University in Bakersfield. During his time as an educator, he was named Franklin School Teacher of the Year and awarded the Kern County Excellence in Teaching Award. Discerning a call to the ordained ministry, in 2006 he and his family moved from Bakersfield, CA to Ambridge, PA, where he earned a Master in Divinity Degree from Trinity Episcopal School for Ministry. He was also awarded the Hebrew Exegesis Award, the Henning Award for Expository Biblical Preaching, and the Senior Leadership Prize.
