Holy Trinity School was opened in 1952 by the Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary from Scranton, PA. Over the years, a lay principal and staff have replaced most of the sisters but we are grateful that one sister from the Immaculate Heart of Mary is still teaching. Holy Trinity School strives to be a Christ-centered school, a place where your child is honored as a child of God and is respected for the person he/she is and is trying to become.School At-a-Glance
