About Us » History


In 2010, a group of dedicated parents and supporters came together with a shared goal of establishing an independent all-girls high school in Monmouth County, an educational option considered long overdue.

To confirm interest and feasibility, a professional educational consulting firm was hired to conduct a county-wide feasibility study which proved an overwhelming demand for a single-sex school to serve the young women of our region. Utilizing the working name Monmouth Girls Academy, the project gained much support and momentum demonstrated through the support of more than 2,100 families.

In January 2012, the board of trustees proudly announced that an all-girls high school would be built, and it was named Trinity Hall in April 2012. By December 2012, the school had its leadership team, naming Mary Sciarrillo as founding head of school and James Palmieri as founding assistant head of school. With Mary at the helm, teachers and staff members were hired and a plan was designed for academic, arts, and athletic programming.

Though independently governed, Trinity Hall’s mission purposely honors the values of Roman Catholicism, an objective valued by the school’s founders from the start. As a result, the school assists in the spiritual, moral, and integral formation of every student while maintaining high standards of academic excellence. Moreover, Trinity Hall is a place designed especially for girls and the way they learn.

Notice of Nondiscriminatory Policy as to Students: Trinity Hall admits students of any race, color, national, and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs.
