Take a seat…A First Class Opportunity!

The Class of ’63 was the first class to graduate from the present Trinity auditorium.

For their 50th reunion they inaugurated a “first class” initiative – to begin replacing the broken and irreparable auditorium seats. You, too, can “take a seat” and be a part of Trinity’s heritage. Purchase a seat for $250 and have it inscribed as a tribute to your parents, daughters, friends, and family.

Please contact Christine Bollettino at for more information or click here to donate!

The Class of 1980 Scholarship

The Class of 1980 is a class of more than 190 women who have influenced the world in countless small, and large, meaningful ways.  Trinity High School played a critical role in shaping who we have become – honorable, successful and independent women, guided by faith and love. We believe all young girls should have the opportunity to experience the same friendship, education and spiritual guidance we were fortunate enough to receive.

In honor of our upcoming Trinity High School 35th anniversary, we, Katie Watts Rauh and Vicky Saracco Brander have given a founding gift to establish the Class of ’80 Scholarship. This will be a need-based scholarship with academic requirements, insuring no girl who works hard and wants to succeed will be denied a Trinity education because of an inability to pay.

Will you show your Trinity Blazer spirit, in honor of each other, our shared experiences and in recognition of the role Trinity played in your life, and donate to the Class of ’80 scholarship fund?

Any contribution is valuable and can be made as a gift from you, in honor of parents or a family member or as a gift to honor you. You can donate by Clicking here.  Once on the page, go to the drop down section entitled “Designate My Gift” and select Class of 1980 Scholarship.

Sister Michelle Germanson Assistance Fund

In the Spring of 2012 the Board of Directors wanted to commemorate Sister Michelle for her illustrious tenure as President of Trinity High School for the past twenty years. Along with honoring her with the prestigious Trinitarian Award, they also established the Sister Michelle Student Assistance Fund. It is no accident that under Sister Michelle’s leadership, Trinity has become one of the THE premier Chicagoland high schools. Continuing the traditions of single gender enrollment along with academic excellence,  Sister Michelle never wants to turn away a qualified, inquisitive and bright young woman because of financial challenges. Offering financial assistance to those who have a desire to enhance their academics, athletics, fine arts and service to others has been beneficial to the student and ultimately to Trinity and society.
