During the sophomore and junior years, students take the PSAT. For sophomores, it is a chance to become familiar with the test. For juniors, the PSAT enters them in the National Merit Program competition. During the 2016-17 school year, four Trinity students received recognition as National Merit Semi-Finalists scoring in the top 1% of test takers in the country. Three students were recognized as National Merit Commended Students, joining just 5% of test takers in the country.

Juniors and seniors are encouraged to take the SAT and/or the ACT which are administered on the national level. Students are responsible for registering for these tests on an individual basis.
