Holy Trinity’s motto is How High School Should Be. What does that mean to you?

This motto reminds me how lucky I am to be able to go to Holy Trinity. The high quality campus and wonderful faculty/staff are ideal as well as the great programs this school offers [to the students].

What is your favorite class this year? Why do you enjoy it?

My favorite class this year is Dance. Because I will be studying dance in college, this class is very helpful…I enjoy dancing and learning about the body.

Has there been a teacher/coach/counselor/administrator at Holy Trinity who has positively influenced you? Please explain:

Mrs. Murphy has positively influenced me. Her ability to inspire [has helped me] dance my best. She has given me so much experience over the past four years.

To what colleges are you applying? What is your intended major?

My intended major is Dance. I am applying to Adelphi, Temple University, Fordham University, Marymount Manhattan, University of Hartford, University of North Carolina – School of the Arts, The University of the Arts, Boston Conservatory, Point Park University, SUNY Purchase, Juilliard, and Florida State University.

What will you miss the most about Holy Trinity?

I will miss the dance concert and the Performing Arts program. I will also miss the welcoming Holy Trinity community.

Do you have any advice for incoming Holy Trinity students?

Enjoy every day because this school is a blessing.
