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.
