Interviews are required of all eighth graders seeking admission to Trinity, and are a great way for you and your family to get to know a member of our teaching or administrative staff. Interviews provide an opportunity for parents to ask specific questions about Trinity or the admissions process that students might not think to ask while visiting our school. Your family should plan to spend 30-45 minutes at Trinity for the interview.

The prompts below will help students understand what might be asked of them during the interview, and leave a positive impression with the interviewer.

All interview appointments have been filled. Please contact the Office of Admissions at 216-581-1061 for further assistance.
