Description

Trinity Christian School is a privately funded, not-for-profit school for children from Kindergarten to Grade 12, located in Morris County, New Jersey (approximately 30 miles from NYC). The school was formed in 1986 and exists to provide Christian families with a biblically-based, academically excellent, Christian education. In 1996 the School shifted its focus from Christian education, to Classically Christian education. Among other changes, this shift resulted in the introduction of Latin in the grammar school years, alongside capstone courses such as Western Thought, Worldviews, Logic, Rhetoric and more in the secondary grades. The governing body is a board of trustees. Each board member serves a three-year term, and may serve consecutive terms. 

Candidates with a thorough commitment to following Christ in his/ her personal life, a commitment to reformed theology (preferably), a love for children and for teaching, a willingness and ability to pursue academic excellence, and a member of a local evangelical church are encouraged to inquire. Please visit www.tcsnj.org for more information; interested/qualified candidates should send a resume, references and cover letter to the Head of School, Jerry Nunes, at jnunes@tcsnj.org
