History of TCHS
Trinity Christian High School was founded to provide a high-quality, Christian education to the youth in Monterey Peninsula. TCHS has a sound educational program, rooted in God’s will and has recently been blessed with a site that will allow us to expand our student body. We believe we have been given the opportunity to transition into the inclusion of a middle school using a 6th-8th grade class model.
