History and Mission

Trinity Basin Preparatory is a tuition-free open enrollment public charter school founded in 1998. Since opening our first Oak Cliff campus in 1999, we have expanded to provide a safe, disciplined learning environment for more than 1800 students in grades PreK-3 through eight. We now have three campuses in Oak Cliff and one campus in Fort Worth. The vision of Trinity Basin Preparatory is to provide an education in an environment specifically designed to meet the individual academic, physical, and emotional needs of its students.

We strive to provide a well-rounded and rigorous education to our students focusing on the core academic areas of reading, writing, math, science and social studies. Expectations on our campuses are very high for students and faculty in order to foster an environment of achievement and success. Teachers who are successful within our organization understand the need to reach each individual student, regardless of any perceived learning barriers. At Trinity Basin Preparatory, we believe every child can succeed, and our teachers, staff, and administrators are all dedicated to that success.

Our Mission:

To inspire every student to do more, expect more and be more.

What is a Charter School?

Charter schools are tuition-free, open enrollment public schools of choice. Although charter schools are public schools, they allow more curricular flexibility and teacher involvement than most traditional public schools, and are charged with innovating and improving all public education. Charter schools are funded with public money (except for their facilities) and are an alternative to regular public school systems. Like school districts, charter schools are monitored and accredited under the statewide testing and accountability system.
