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

It means that Holy Trinity has everything a high school needs. There is diversity, numerous clubs, sports, and a great teaching staff.


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

My favorite class this year is Psychology. I am really interested in studying this college. Mr. Marinelli is also a great teacher.


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

Mr. Marinelli has positively influenced me. I only have him [as a teacher] for half a semester but he has encouraged me to open up during class. He is always positive and non-judgmental.

What has been a “highlight” of your time at Holy Trinity? Please describe a moment that you enjoyed and/or made you proud:

My favorite moment this year was Homecoming. The event was so exciting and fun…[it was] a great moment for our Athletics department.


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

I applied to University of North Carolina, Florida State, Villanova University, St. John’s University, College of Charleston, Binghamton University, SUNY Cortland, Nassau Community College, and Northeastern University.


What will you miss the most about Holy Trinity?

I will miss the familiarity of my second home [for] the past four years. The love and comfort I feel at Holy Trinity is indescribable.


Do you have any advice for incoming Holy Trinity students?

I would say to take advantage of everything this school has to offer. Appreciate your time here because it truly does fly by.
