Trinity Episcopal School announced today that Blue House Preschool at Trinity Episcopal School was awarded accreditation from Independent Schools Association of the Southwest (ISAS) and Southwestern Association of Episcopal Schools (SAES).
Trinity Episcopal School purchased Blue House Preschool, formerly Elsass Academy Westlake, on January 1, 2021. Gil and Candace Elsass previously owned and operated Elsass Academy at the corner of Bee Cave Road and Camp Craft Road since 1991.
“Trinity had considered the idea of incorporating an early-childhood program for many years, as preschool preparatory curriculum dovetails well with our K-8 model,” said Morgan. “Trinity’s storied growth history is consistently built on big dreams coupled with strategic and systematic steps, with each progressive goal crafted by dynamic objectives and hard work,” she said. “The creation of Blue House Preschool bolsters Trinity’s options, flexibility, and outreach.”
