Located in the beautiful beach town of Jacmel, Lekòl Sen Trinite is a day school that serves the most impoverished families and children in the community. Children begin their education with a Montessori kindergarten and continue through the 6th grade. Currently, about 150 young boys and girls are receiving a top-quality education at the school. Without Lekòl Sen Trinite these children would likely not otherwise have the opportunity to attend school.
The students are educated in the typical academic areas — reading, writing, math, history, religion, French — and are all provided with a uniform, backpack and school supplies, including school books. These youngsters receive access to state-of-the-art technology; participate in weekly Bible studies and prayer services; and, may participate in afterschool programs focused on art, dance, cooking, and life-skills.
Directed by Daniel Jean Mary, a St. Joseph’s graduate, the school also offers members of the community with extracurricular educational opportunities including crochet and karate lessons. Micro-loan financing opportunities are available to parents to assist them in their ability to fund future educational opportunities for their children.
