Our Mission


Our Mission

Your child deserves an excellent education. At Trinity, it is our mission to provide just that. Trinity Christian Academy has been Central Kentucky’s premier classical Christian private day school since 1988. We exist to provide an excellent classical Christian education for the glory of Christ and the good of the Bluegrass.

We are Christ-centered and classical; we foster a thriving community where your child can excel academically, spiritually, and socially from PreK to graduation. We are accredited by the Kentucky Non-Public Schools Commission and are a member of the Society for Classical Learning.

Our mission is expressed through our core values of faith, scholarship, virtue, and community, producing students who love God, love learning, love goodness, and love one another.

Statement of Faith

The Bible

We believe that the Bible is the very Word of God in its entirety and, therefore, is our authority in matters of faith and practice.


We believe in one God, creator of the universe, eternally existing in the person of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.


We believe that God wonderfully and immutably created human beings in His own image as male and female–two biologically distinct yet complementary sexes, different but with equal personal dignity–and that humans should affirm their biological sex and refrain from seeking to change, alter or disagree with their biological sex; and, that all human life from conception through natural death is worthy of protection. We believe that God instituted and ordered marriage as a lifelong union between one man and one woman and that sexual intimacy outside of the covenant bond of marriage is contrary to God’s design and purpose. We believe that human beings were created innocent but rebelled against God, resulting in the subjugation of the human race under the powers of sin and death. We believe that God offers redemption and restoration to all who confess and forsake their sin, seeking his mercy and forgiveness through Jesus Christ. 

Jesus Christ

We believe that Jesus Christ was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, crucified for our sin, and raised from the dead for our justification in eternal victory. He is undiminished in deity and genuine humanity in one person.

Christ's Return

We believe that Jesus Christ ascended to Heaven to the right hand of God the Father and will one day return to this earth in power and glory.


We believe that the only means of being cleansed from sin is through repentance and faith in the precious blood of Jesus Christ, surrendering to him as Lord and Savior.

The Holy Spirit

We believe that the Holy Spirit is a personal Being who convicts the world of sin and who regenerates, indwells, empowers, guides, and seals believers eternally for God.


We believe that regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely necessary for the salvation of lost sinners, and those who receive the Lord Jesus Christ by faith are born again into the family of God.


We believe that heaven is the abode and the place of eternal joy for the saved and that hell is the place of eternal judgment for the lost.

The Church

We believe that the family of God is part of the visible church, and is the body of believers of which Christ is the head.

The Statement of Faith contains those doctrines to which Trinity unreservedly adheres and teaches. It is Trinity’s desire to maintain this position.

Although we maintain an interdenominational profile representing more than 80 churches from Lexington and the surrounding areas, Trinity is a ministry of Tates Creek Presbyterian Church. Therefore, we exist in agreement and submission to Tates Creek Presbyterian’s theology and distinctives. Students are not required to believe the denominational distinctives as outlined in the Westminster Confession of Faith; however, these matters may arise in classes and chapel services.

This statement of faith also does not exhaust the extent of our beliefs. The Bible, as the inspired and authoritative Word of God, speaks with final authority concerning truth, morality, and the proper conduct of human affairs. For purposes of Trinity’s faith, doctrine, practice, discipline, and policy, the Board under the authority and direction of the Session of Tates Creek Presbyterian Church is Trinity’s final interpretive authority on the Bible’s meaning and application.
