Funding An Independent School Education at Trinity-Byrnes Collegiate School

Trinity-Byrnes Collegiate School is a not-for-profit organization operating without any local, state, or federal funding. Unfortunately, tuition and fees alone do not cover the cost of a Trinity-Byrnes education. Our school is largely sustained by the good works and tax-deductible charitable gifts of its families and community.

Trinity-Byrnes Collegiate School maintains a conservative fiscal policy while enhancing its educational programs and improving its facilities. The operating budget, which is supported, in part, by The Annual Fund, provides funding for academic programs, athletics, financial aid, and faculty salaries, as well as the maintenance of our buildings, facilities, and technology infrastructure.

Trinity-Byrnes Collegiate School has a long history and tradition of giving. Without the tremendous generosity of our parents, alumni, and friends we would not be the school we are today. Families who are new to Trinity-Byrnes are invited to participate in the New Families Campaign—a tradition at Trinity-Byrnes.
