Announcement from the Board of Trustees

Kathy Cook joined Trident Academy in 2013 to help usher in a reimagined mission for the school.

The Harkness Philosophy at Trident Academy

Ms. Carter and Ms. Pringle are two of several Trident Academy teachers who attended institutes at Phillips Exeter Academy last year. Part of their training included an insight into the Harkness Philosophy, something they have adapted and introduced to their middle school students. This teaching philosophy encourages deeper reflection through unscripted discussion.

We invite you to join us on Thursday, January 22 at 6:00 p.m. at Trident Academy for a free discussion on the Harkness Philosophy. For more information, please contact Trident Academy at admissions@tridentacademy.com.
