Through the vision and efforts of dedicated Boston area leaders in finance, education, and faith, Boston Trinity Academy opened its doors in September 2002. These founders shared a common goal to address one of the greatest needs for the young people of Boston — a rigorous college preparatory school founded on the Christian faith principles accessible to students from all neighborhoods, ethnicities, and socioeconomic backgrounds. As a result of this vision, Boston Trinity Academy established a program of academic rigor enriched with co-curricular activities for a truly diverse student body.
In 2002, Boston Trinity Academy launched with 54 students in grades 6-9 in a rented school building on Beacon Street in Brookline. Adding a grade each year, the school soon grew to 125 students, and in June 2006, the first senior class of 16 graduated — all college bound. In September of that year, the school purchased its facility and moved to an expansive five-acre campus in Boston's Hyde Park neighborhood. Currently, Boston Trinity Academy is educating nearly 250 students in grades 6 through 12.
Boston Trinity Academy is a Christian, coed, college preparatory middle and high school. We educate a diverse student body from across the Great Boston area in grades 6-12. We are committed to providing an exceptional academic experience that inspires each student to excel in a Christ-centered community where they are known and loved.

At Boston Trinity Academy, we know and love every student, guiding and challenging each one to thrive as a whole person.
