Private Schools are Back to School in Ocala
Published August 14th, 2013
The excitement could be felt campus-wide as students were busy figuring out their new class schedules, how to get into their new lockers, and picking up their new books today for a brand new school year at Trinity Catholic High School.
And administration had some surprises for the students as well.
All students must take an honor pledge and the rules of the school are enforced by a student honor board, not by the administration.
Also, all student have to participate in three activities, whether they be clubs, sports or organizations and during their hour lunch period, they will have the opportunity to have their club meetings or receive tutoring.
For educators, this school year presents many opportunities for their students.
"The first day of school is always exciting and it's because you're starting fresh. And the neat thing about being an educator is, you never get old, because there's always freshman, there's always sophomores, there's always juniors, seniors. And they come back, and they're grown."
Catholic schools nationwide have recently experienced a 12% decrease in enrollment this school session but Trinity Catholic says they've increased their student population by 25%.
