Holy Trinity’s motto is A Special Time, Place, and Spirit. What does that mean to you?

What this means to me is that Holy Trinity isn’t just any ordinary high school; it’s a place that makes you feel at home. It’s filled with such amazing people who you can consider a second family. HT isn’t a school that just teaches you about religion. It also teaches you how to apply it in your everyday life. All these things are what definitely make Holy Trinity a special time, place, and spirit.


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

My favorite class this year is Anatomy & Physiology. I enjoy this class because we [learn] more in-depth [facts] about the human body and its different functions. It is also what I want to major in at college.


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

There have been many people at Holy Trinity who have positively influenced me. One person who has really influenced me is Principal Moran. She was the first person at Holy Trinity who encouraged me to get involved. She always made sure I was doing well in all my classes. She has influenced me to make decisions for the benefit of my future and I am forever grateful.


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

A “highlight” of my time at Holy Trinity was during my last Varsity Soccer season playing as a Titan. We had finally made the playoffs for the first time in fifteen years. Although we lost our final game, I managed to score a goal and I felt a sense of pride that I had never felt before. It was just so amazing…to this day, I can’t get over that feeling.

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

I have applied to Siena College, UCONN, NYIT, and Molloy College. My intended major is Biology and I hope to enter either science research or the medical field.

What will you miss the most about Holy Trinity?

There are plenty of things I’ll miss about Holy Trinity. The main thing that I’ll miss is the sense of community. From the time I came in as a freshman through my senior year, I considered Holy Trinity a second home. Going to class while participating in clubs and sports, I realized that I was part of a huge family with such amazing people. Holy Trinity is a place I will definitely miss.


Do you have any advice for incoming Holy Trinity students?

To all incoming Holy Trinity students – my advice to you is to get involved! It will make your four years of high school very memorable. Don’t wait until senior year; start getting involved as a freshman. Participating in after-school activities is where I met some of the most amazing friends I’ve ever had.
