Situated on approximately 6.9 acres, our campus is located at 979 Mary Dunn Road in Barnstable, Massachusetts.  

Trinity School of Cape Cod, as it was originally named, was established in January 1967 by a group comprised of four ministers and three laymen as a nonprofit independent school for the purpose of providing a strong academic education centered in historic Christianity and founded on the basic truths of the Bible.  Trinity first opened its doors with a Pre-School and Kindergarten program in South Yarmouth using two buildings owned by the Evangelical Baptist Church. 
The school expanded over a period of 30 years and occupied up to five buildings belonging to the Evangelical Baptist Church and one owned by the school as well as the Bass River Community Church building.  In 1998 the school changed its named to Trinity Christian Academy of Cape Cod. Trinity continued to add grades while operating out of the church building until 2003.  
Through God’s providence, Trinity Christian Academy was able to secure land located on Mary Dunn Road in Barnstable, Massachusetts. Trinity Christian Academy’s facility was built on our 6.9 acre campus in two phases: Phase One of the school’s building was completed in February 2003 (Pre-K through 6th Grade Wing) and Phase Two (Grades 7-12: Upper Level Wing) was finished in March 2006. 
In the spring of 2013, Trinity launched a capital campaign, Building Community for Our Children,  to build a Creative Arts and Activity Center. Construction was completed in August 2013.  The 48 x 88 addition includes two classrooms for music, art and a multi-purpose room for physical education, sports practices, lunch, drama productions and other school events. In the Spring of 2016 the school completed Phase Two of Building Community for Our Children, adding a second story with two additional classrooms, a tutoring room and an office.
