TEEP Admissions Application

Trinity Education for Excellence Program: Our mission at TEEP is to establish a safe and supportive community with Boston’s Youth of Color where every member is inspired to discover, empowered to achieve, and individually affirmed. This is a program of the non-profit: Trinity Boston Connects.


TEEP is a tuition-free, out-of-school time program that empowers students to pursue excellence. We do this through academic enrichment, cultural exploration, character and leadership development. We are a welcoming community that accepts students from diverse backgrounds and identities, all faith traditions and those without a faith tradition. ALL NEW APPLICANTS MUST BE ENROLLED IN 7th, 8th, 9th or 10th GRADE.

Applicants admitted to the program are expected to participate for two to three consecutive Summer Sessions, depending on entry grade level and invited throughout the school year for events planned and facilitated by high schoolers in the LDP (leadership development program). **Participants who graduate our pipeline middle school program are eligible for the LDP**


This is the first of a two-part application. Once this form has been signed and submitted, the second part of this admission process will be forwarded to the family, and involves an assessment conducted by one teacher, of the applicants choice, at the applicants current school.
