Educating students with learning differences, each according to their specific needs

Trinity educates children with learning differences such as autism, ADD/ADHD, dyslexia, dysgraphia and dyscalculia. The K-12 school also serves students with auditory and sensory processing issues, anxiety and developmental or intellectual delays. Trinity is the only
school in the Oklahoma City area dedicated to educating students with diagnosed learning differences.

Their staff includes a licensed professional counselor with experience in psychoeducational testing and a licensed school psychometrist. These experts allow Trinity to track standardized testing results and data from formative assessments, inform instruction and guide individualized learning plans. In addition, Trinity’s staff experts work with classroom instructors and division heads to develop programs for students of all ages to determine how best to help them succeed academically.

At Trinity, spiritual development is just as important as academic rigor. Trinity has a full-time chaplain who holds weekly chapel and religious education classes. In addition,
Trinity students participate in service projects each year, learning to serve God and others.

Trinity recognizes that a child’s social development is vitally important. Therefore, the school requires weekly classes to help students improve self-advocacy and social skills. Furthermore, Trinity aims to help students address learning and executive function differences due to neurodiversity. Trinity also offers activities, sports and clubs, making school a fun place to be.

Because each learner is unique, Trinity designs programs and instruction utilizing the latest assistive technology and evidence-based teaching methods. Unlike many schools, accommodations/modifications are delivered directly in the classroom. The unique K-12 program and small class sizes allow Trinity to use multiple methods to improve students’ experiences and outcomes.


Trinity should be the standard in how to best help amazing kids like Dawson! I have met other parents who have children like Dawson and love being able to tell them how amazing Trinity is. It also breaks my heart to hear of their struggles. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for being such incredible educators. Thank you for being such an amazing school. Thank you for being a place of belonging when you’re feeling lost and adrift. Lucia & Chip Frohling, parents

Trinity is so much more than a school — it’s a community centered around inclusion, celebrating differences and being met where you are. The loving, Christ-centered, student-focused environment allows students to thrive and be a part of something greater than themselves. The whole child growth development model ensures that every student is set up for success and allowed to ‘ fail forward’ without hurting their confidence. For our family, it has been the very best decision and investment we’ve made for our children’s futures!

Division Heads Deana Huff, Becky Edmonds and Shelli Thomas have worked together to help settle Trinity’s students into its new location while developing online classroom tools and innovative ways to teach. We recently asked them about Trinity’s educational philosophy, what makes the school stand apart and how they engage families.

What is your educational philosophy and how does that impact the students at Trinity?
Trinity’s educational philosophy is to provide a safe, nurturing and encouraging environment for students with learning differences. Our holistic programs focus on academics, spirituality and social skills. Every student comes to Trinity with their own unique learning style. Our educators meet each student where they are and deliver tailored programs that help prepare them to enter the world with knowledge and motivation so they succeed and reach their fullest potentials.

What makes Trinity School stand out among all the education choices parents have?
Trinity School offers specialized education plans and tailored instruction delivered by reading therapists and math interventionists every day in a traditional school environment. Our small class sizes and intentionally designed spaces, combined with our unique reading therapy-based curriculum, accommodate students diagnosed with a variety of learning differences including anxiety, ADD, ADHD, dyslexia, dyscalculia, dysgraphia and autism spectrum disorder. We have a team made up of academic specialists, reading therapists, math interventionists and a school counselor who work together with parents to develop a Trinity Individualized Plan for each student that is revisited throughout the year to make sure they are progressing across academic disciplines.

How do you engage parents/families in your students’ educations?
We’re a family at Trinity and we believe that parent feedback is a critical component to ensure students achieve their goals. Like learning differences, each student’s learning style and situation is different. Because of this, we develop a Trinity Individualized Plan with parents to accommodate and modify lessons and social skills. In addition to working together to develop strategies unique to each student’s learning style, we offer multiple opportunities for our families to participate in social, spiritual and athletic activities.

How has the pandemic changed things at Trinity School and how is Trinity School meeting the current needs of your students and families?
When we realized we would need to teach remotely, our team developed a process for teaching online and leveraged our use of technology to keep students engaged. While that was effective, we knew our students needed to be at school with our teachers. So, with the safety and health of our staff, students, parents and visitors as our highest priority, we worked to develop a Return to Campus plan to get students back in our building. Our team, students and parents have worked tirelessly to keep our campus safe. Our students are now wearing masks, social distancing and following new lunch and athletic protocols, proving they can do anything!
