Holy Trinity Catholic School is the new name for the consolidated schools consisting of Pre-K3 through 6th grade students from the parishes of Our Lady of the Gulf, St. Rose of Lima, and St. Clare. The name is so appropriate since we are now, following Hurricane Katrina, three schools combined into one.
Each graphic on the emblem has a specific meaning. The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are represented on the emblem by the extended hands, cross, and the dove. The lighthouse represents the symbol used by the Diocese of Biloxi, as well as, our location along the Gulf Coast. The globe was included to represent that we are a part of Catholic education throughout the world.
Holy Trinity Catholic School is located in Bay St. Louis, MS, and is a Catholic School within the Diocese of Biloxi.
HTCS is accredited through SACS, the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, and is a member of NCEA, the National Catholic Educators Association and the Hancock County Chamber of Commerce.
We currently have 323 students from 200 families. HTCS students are offered a challenging curriculum with all of the standard subjects – English, Math, Science, Social Studies, Reading, and Spelling, all presented within the context of traditional Catholic teachings through Religion classes. In addition, our students participate in Art, Computer Science, Library, Music and Physical Education. Our faculty consists of twenty-two teachers, six teacher’s aides, a Title 1 specialist and six support staff members.
A new curriculum was instituted at the school three years ago and the students have continued to improve in their grades and standardized testing scores.
