   Ah, Sadie Hawkins. The one day Trinity Prep students don their touristy Hawaiian T-shirts or dust off their flamboyant 70’s attire. In theory, it is a great opportunity for girls to take initiative and ask guys to a school dance—something that is a bit of an anomaly at Homecoming or Prom. Yet its ...

  It’s discussed. It’s disregarded. It’s disputed.   Climate change is the most important global problem the Earth is facing. We have all heard about it, but what really is it and why is it important?   From the mid to late 20th century and forwards, increased levels of atmospheri...

   With the recent fever dream of an election exacerbating bitter divides in the nation, racial issues have come to the forefront of our national conscience.

At Trinity Prep, the student body isn’t the only thing that is bright. Our prime location in the Sunshine State gives us incredible solar potential; in fact, Florida has the third-best conditions of any state for converting sunlight into solar energy. Yet, our campus is letting that energy go to waste. The...

It’s not funny anymore

Olivia Duncan attends The First Academy, a Christian private school analogous to Trinity Prep in more ways than one. We are football rivals, friends and only 18.8 miles away from each other. Yet, one of Duncan’s recent Instagram posts championed values far from our idea of tolerance. “So….I...

There is no greater feeling than waking up on a Monday morning and realizing that you have the day off. With the dreaded daily routine on hold, we have the freedom to stay a little (or a lot) longer in bed, letting the pulse of the weekend peacefully leave us. For the typical, busy student, a holiday...

Yet recently the site has included a new addition: feeling fat, accompanied by a chubby-cheeked emoticon. Ignoring the fact that weight i...

Ah, the 70’s.  A time when ice cream was considered a nutritious dairy snack and teenagers were encouraged to hitchhike with strangers.  With the passage of four decades came an advancement (and creation) of not only some common sense, but also an increased need for safety.
