Adolescence is a hard time in a person’s life time, as a lot of change is occurring. Hormones are changing, friends are changing, as well as added independence and responsibilities. Teenagers want to be accepted not just by their family, but by everyone. That is a hard and unrealistic task to accomplish. On top of the existential crises that many teenagers experience, they are challenged to make a life-defining decision of what career they want to pursue, and consequently what school they want to attend. Adolescence is indeed a stressful time for anyone. Since, teenagers spend most of the day at school, it is important that their time is spent in an environment that is safe and nurtures not only their academic and vocational needs, but also tends to their emotional, social, and developmental needs.
Each month Davidson Family Therapy promotes a local place in the community to help provide resources for our clients and our community. In honor of the back-to-school season, we are proud to Spot Light Trinity Prep, a school that puts your child a step closer towards success. Davidson Family Therapy proudly promotes this school as an option for our clients that could benefit from a smaller class size, an achievement-focused curriculum, a wellness-focused environment, and a tight-knit academic community.
Trinity Prep is a small private school, located on East Independence Blvd in Charlotte, NC. The school accepts students in 8th grade all the way up to senior year. The classes are small in size and allow students to learn at their own pace. Each class tends to a variety of learning styles, through the use of lectures, reading activities, group projects, and experiential activities. Trinity Prep assists every student in maximizing their learning potential by catering their learning experience with their learning style. This is a great environment for students with classroom or performance anxiety, attention problems, obsessive compulsive disorder, bullying, or learning difficulties. Because the school is small, each student is truly given the time and effort to help them find their own way to succeed.
Trinity Prep not only caters to those who experience difficulty in learning in the classroom, but is a safe environment for your children to grow. This school has a strict bullying policy and encourages their students to be kind not only to their peers in school, but out of school as well. If a child does act out behaviorally, the school patiently works with the child, welcoming in community resources, like therapists, to cultivate a plan that can help the child better succeed while addressing the underlying concerns triggering the disruptive behaviors. Based on our observations and perception, Trinity Prep truly is a nurturing place for adolescents.
Trinity Prep's aim is not to simply get their students through school, but rather to prepare them to be successful in their desired careers. Thus, they offer many opportunities for their students to explore their interests and cultivate the skills necessary to advance beyond graduation. Despite the small size, there are clubs, sports, organizations and school dances. Many of the students get into their first choice for college and become successful students at excellent colleges and universities.
If you are interested in enrolling your child into Trinity Prep, the process is not a hard one. Simply call to see if space is available in your child's grade level, then apply online. Once you have applied and been approved, you will meet with the head of the school, Doug Corwin for an interview. After the interview, on another date, your child will be allowed to visit the school for a day to make sure that Trinity Prep is a good match for the student, and that the student is a good match for Trinity Prep.
