Trinity Episcopal School was founded in 1954 with a dual purpose. It was to be a place for the shaping of Christian character and the attainment of excellence in education. Trinity is a mission of Trinity Episcopal Church in Marshall, Texas. Trinity Episcopal School has taken over 60 years of experience and developed a progressive and successful curriculum for students in preschool through all grade levels authorized by its Board of Directors.
Accreditation by the Texas Education Agency was first granted to Trinity Episcopal School in 1976. Trinity Episcopal School has maintained that accreditation and is now under the new TEA agency, Texas Private School Accreditation Commission (TEPSAC). Under that agency's guidelines, Trinity Episcopal School became fully accredited in 1989 by the Southwestern Association of Episcopal Schools (SAES). SAES is a member in good standing of the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS) Commission on Accreditation. It has voluntarily agreed to abide by the Commission’s Criteria for Effective Independent School Accreditation Practices and to submit to a thorough review and evaluation of its accreditation standards, criteria, and procedures. SAES is recognized by three state agencies and by eleven Episcopal dioceses within the six states served by the association.
In 2001, Trinity Episcopal School became accredited by Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS), which is nowAdvancED. Trinity Episcopal School is listed in the TEA Texas Nonpublic Schools Directory. To quote from the Directory, "Student credits earned in nonpublic schools accredited by a recognized association shall be transferable to Texas public schools. In addition, teacher service in these schools shall be creditable for salary increment purposes in Texas public schools." Therefore, Trinity Episcopal School has enjoyed continuous accreditation since 1976 when it was first granted accreditation by TEA.
