Upper School History
At Boston Trinity Academy we study history because understanding the past helps us to navigate the present. Sailors do not get from one harbor to the next by watching the water as it passes beneath their bow. Rather, they look for lighthouses and fixed points on the horizon. Neither do good students of history navigate life by reacting on the spot to the flow of sensational news as it ricochets across the internet. They view current events and future possibilities in light of a discernible, relevant past. Our investment in learning how to think historically pays lifelong dividends, equipping us to be stronger and more enlightened citizens in a global community.
