Trinity Valley School (“TVS”) was originally established in 1959 as the educational component of the Texas Boys Choir. As TVS evolved and grew, the underlying philosophy remained constant – to be a leader in the world, one must understand the world. TVS is built on the foundation that developing young people intellectually, athletically, artistically, ethically, spiritually, and socially prepares them to interpret and respond to the challenges in their local and global communities. In 1998, TVS moved to a 75-acre campus in southwest Fort Worth.
TVS enjoys full co-ed enrollment of over 1,000 students in pre-k through 12th grade. Cultural, racial, religious, and socioeconomic diversity have long been hallmarks of the School, and students of color typically constitute 25-30 percent of the student body. The new pre-kindergarten program opens in 2019-2020 with full enrollment of 32 students. The overall admissions picture for the 2019-2020 school year is robust. The student retention rate has averaged over 95 percent for the past 30 years with the last five years being over 97 percent, a strong vote of confidence from parents and students.
Due to outstanding management and a strong collaboration between administration and the Board of Trustees, TVS is in a healthy financial position, including a $35 million endowment. For the 2019-20 academic year, 23 percent of students will receive over $3 million of need-based financial aid. The School has 187 employees, including 70 with master’s degrees and 13 with PhDs.
