Curriculum Highlights

Trinity has a foods lab with six full kitchens where students are able to put into practice skills they learn in Foods and Cooking.

Home and Design students learn the “ins” and “outs” of buying or renting a place to live, then learn how to decorate it.

Geography of Foods teaches students to study food as culture, including regional foods of the U.S. and around the world, symbolic meanings of food, and religious food taboos. They will also study food production in the U.S., around the World, and production plans for the future.

The Child Development and Parenting classes give students insight into the role of being a parent and teach them what to expect in each age of development from conception through the age of 12.  Many hands on activities are used as well as projects and research incorporating the use of their iPads.

Our sewing room boasts 18 sewing stations for students to get hands on practice in beginning sewing.
