Darlington, SC- Trinity Collegiate plans 4.4 million campus expansion.Trinity Collegiate School plans to break ground this coming spring on a 4.4 million dollar campus expansion. The plans include an International Student dormitory, an Auxiliary Gymnasium, and an Academic Classroom Building.

The first phase of the campus expansion will be an International Dormitory, with a projected cost of $1.2 million. The building will house 32 students in an 8560 square foot building. The dormitory will feature two wings off a common area with 8 student dorm rooms in each wing (2 students per room), with girls on one side and boys on the other. Each wing will also provide a resident area for faculty house supervisors. An outdoor patio, a common area, and kitchen are also planned as part of the overall dormitory facility footprint.

“The dorm, by far, is going to be the most exciting part of the project”, said Ed Hoffman, Head of School. “Facility expansion is a major component of the 2020-2025 Strategic Plan and is critical to the school’s continued growth and success of the School.”

Since coming to Trinity Collegiate School in 2011, Mr. Hoffman has traveled extensively overseas building relationships in order to advance the School’s International Program. The School currently enrolls 21 international students from China, Korea, Vietnam, France, Lithuania, Turkey, Ireland, and Canada. School has also hosted students from India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Germany, and Italy in past years.

The School’s overall enrollment stands at 353; the highest in the School’s 25-year history. The School has been ranked not only as one of the best schools in the region, but also one of the top school in the state.  

April Munn, Director of Admissions, said “Trinity Collegiate is a unique regional independent school that attracts students from throughout the Pee Dee region and internationally. Over 10% of our students are from outside of Florence, Darlington and Hartsville and 58% of our high school students were previously enrolled in public school.”

In addition to the International Dormitory, the Trinity Collegiate Expansion project includes an additional 22,000 square foot Auxiliary Gymnasium and Classroom Building. The proposed timeline has the International Dormitory operational within 6 months of ground breaking.

Trinity Collegiate School is currently accepting applications for students entering grades 6-12.  Please contact April Munn at amunn@trinitybyrnes.org or 843-395-9124 for more information.

Trinity Collegiate School is a coeducational, non-discriminatory day school in Darlington, South Carolina. The school’s mission is to operate exclusively as a college preparatory school of academic excellence; graduating well-rounded students of intellectual, social, and moral character ready to lead productive lives in a global society.
