For the students of North County in St. Louis; Trinity Catholic HIgh School is a beacon of hope that might help them to be able to accomplish their pursuit of a better education.
The education I recieved at Mercy High School gave me the tools to learn how to navigate the working world - its pitfalls and its joys. That is my hope for your students. We have to keep learning in order to succeed in life.
Nira Brady, Mercy High Class of 1951
As I was contemplating all of the good fortune the Lord has sent my way (family, friends, faith) I can't help but realize that my upbringing has been a large part of all of that. I have to thank my parents and my teachers for the lion's share of my values. I still socialize with my elementary and highschool friends on a frequent basis. I had a very good time at Rosary and my report cards will attest to that. It is funny that to this very day I used the skills I learned at Rosary and in the Marine Corps. I am not sure who was toughest; Father Obmann or my drill instructor!
Bill Roach, Rosary High Class of 1966
I am an alum of Rosary High School (now Trinity Catholic High School). I have a Ph D in Biological Sciences from St. Louis Universty focusing on diabetes and exercise/muscle physiology. As a young adolescent I was not fully aware of my potential or the opportunities available to me. The teachers, coaches, and staff at Rosary were uplifting on a daily basis in regard to encouraging and developing my talents. The small but cohesive atmosphere harbors and accentuates the core Christian values which continue to guide my life. My dedication to service (acquired from Rosary) and desire to pay homage has drawn me back to Trinity Catholic in recent years. In 2012 I served as a volunteer assistant football coach. I would highly recommend Trinity Catholic High to any parent looking for a school rich in values and capable of preparing students for a life-long process of learning and growing.

The following is a transcript of the Parent Reflection delivered at Baccalaureate Mass by Gary and Katie Meyer - parents of 2012 graduate Kim Meyer.
"My name is Gary Meyer and this is my wife, Katie. We are the proud parents of Kim who sits among you as a gradating Titan. To tell you a little bit about ourselves, we were married 25 years ago at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Florissant where we are still active parishoners. We have five children ranging from age 23-13. We feel blessed and fortunate every day for our family. But, to be honest, we are still looking for that manual. We have yet to find the book that tells us exactly how to do this parenting thing. So, we talk, we seek advice of others and we pary at lot for God’s guidance in our decisions.
Undoubtedly, everyone understands the difficulty in making choices. It’s one thing to make decisions for our own life, but often trickier when tackling those involving our children. Especially the big decision in St. Louis, where will we send her for high school. Parents, as many of you probably did, we sent Kim to shadow different high schools, to various high school nights and high school summer camps, all to get a fee for where she would fit. The day of her Trinity visit all the worry and confusion seemed to have lifted. She came bouncing to the car with joy on her face and proclaimed, “That’s it. I’m done”. She wanted to be a Titan.
These four years have gone by so fast. Our experience is just one of the many success stories to come out of this graduationg class. We hope we can giver proper praise to the compassionate adminstration and to the dedicated faculty. We all know the Trinity motto - ”Where Everyone Makes A Difference”. this is not just about the students. So many teachers, counselors, coaches and administrators made a difference in our lives. Some stayed after to help her get through a class, may raised the bar and encouraged her to try new things, others helped her find her strengths. I didn’t matter if we were talking to Dawn, Mr. Grumich, Coach Drake, Miss Lydon, Sr. Karl Mary or Brian Keeven, everyone in the Trinity family was interested in the welfare and success of our child. Thank you for going above and beyond, for challenging her to be her best and for squashing her when she needed to be sat on. Now we understand why they say teaching is not a job, it’s a vocation.
Seniors, everyone has a story of the past four years. Each of you have things that have happened to you. But in truth You have happened to others too. There is a nurturing spirit that lives among you all. We have witnessed your joy in others successes. We have seen your pain in others sadness. Kim’s story is HER story but we think it turned out pretty well because YOU were all in it. Thank you for Making A Difference.
It is said life is the sum of all of our choices. We are very happy Trinity has been a factor in the equation."
