Since 1989 – when the activities of the Kindergarten began, with the purpose of giving life to a Bilingual School – religious formation was provided and the spirituality of Schoenstatt was embraced. Since then, the College has been entrusted to Our Lady of Schoenstatt and follows the guidelines of the Movement in the formation of its students.
With the advice of Father Horacio Sosa Carbó – who regularly attended to offer his Encounters, and the pedagogical advice of Isabel Mujica, through her valuable Workshops for Parents and Teachers-, the School grew within the Pedagogy of the Movement.
In 1990, Monsignor Rómulo García blessed the definitive headquarters of Holy Trinity College in "Villa Alzaga", officially declaring it a member of the JUREC and Catholic College of the Diocese of Mar del Plata.
• Educate children and youth according to the teachings of the Catholic Church.
• Stimulate the development of your personal mission.
• Promote their inclusion as an active member in the mission of the Church.
For this, it incorporates the development of Catechesis into its Institutional Curriculum, from an early age, with a Team of catechists according to age and academic levels.
Within the framework of its Catholic formation, Holy Trinity College -as an International School- aspires that its students demonstrate tolerance and acceptance of differences, understanding that the integration of other cultures and religions enriches us.
Solidarity action is the central axis of all community action activities and is understood as an attitude of life

Through the CAS Program (Creativity, Action and Service) Polimodal students discover that the greatest gratification is found in giving and serving others.
