Excellence & Sustainability for the Next 100 Years Campaign

EmPOWERed Campaign

In 1918 Rosary House began operation and the Trinity High School tradition was born.  Five bold, visionary Sinsinawa Dominicans left our Mother House in southwest Wisconsin one year earlier and headed to River Forest to open a school to educate women.  It was with great faith that these dedicated women came to the area and it is Trinity’s honor to celebrate the centennial of their legacy.

The Trinity EMPOWERED: Excellence & Sustainability for the Next 100 Years Campaign celebrates the accomplishments throughout our history while preparing Trinity for its next century of educating young women.  From our earliest days of investing in women’s education at a time when women in this country were not even given the right to vote, to present days of building self-confident leaders with strong faith and a thirst for knowledge and truth, Trinity has always been at the forefront of the empowerment of women.  This Campaign builds upon Trinity’s history of excellence and will ensure the best learning opportunities for our young women.
Trinity EMPOWERED will do two things:
  •  Initiate an endowment fund that provides student scholarships and financial assistance for the future and ensures resources to retain and attract the best faculty possible.
  •  Invest in Trinity’s infrastructure and renovate the facilities to be more efficient, sustainable and supportive of its academic excellence.

Secure the Mission for generations of young women to come.

Theater Renovation

The Trinity Theatre Master Plan for Renovation secures our unique Mission for generations of young women to come.  Artistic Innovation and Academic Excellence have kept Trinity at the forefront of young women’s secondary education since 1918. Trinity community members and neighbors are encouraged to attend our acclaimed student performances and those of our Theatre clients. Our renovation will continue to forge a path of education, creating spaces that enable young women to realize their potential and be confident, intellectual, curious, kind, and creative.
