Blessed Trinity also has one of the best sports medicine programs out of all Georgia high schools. Blessed Trinity's sports medicine program staffs approximately fifteen student athletic trainers who are commanded by an ATC. The department also includes a unique unit of specialized trained student athletic trainers known as the Blessed Trinity Sports Medicine Trauma Unit. Unique only to Blessed Trinity when compared to other local high school, these members are trained above the standard first aid and CPR. In 2006, Blessed Trinity will be adding a sports medicine and athletic training class to its course list.

History

The exponential growth in the Catholic population in metro Atlanta, during the 1990s, caused the demand for quality Catholic education to increase dramatically. In response to this demand, Archbishop John Francis Donoghue established Catholic Construction Services, Inc. (CCSI), in the fall of 1997, to facilitate the construction of additional Catholic schools.

On January 29, 1999 Archbishop Donoghue broke ground on a new archdiocesan high school, Blessed Trinity. The construction of the school was overseen by Project Manager Allen Kronenberger of CCSI who commissioned Hussey, Gay, Bell and DeYoung International, Inc. of Savannah as architects for the project.

Blessed Trinity opened in August 2000 with a total enrollment of 219 students, 164 freshmen and 55 sophomores. The school's reputation led to its rapid growth, enrollment increasing to 465 by the second year, 680 in the third, 840 in the fourth, and 875 in the fifth. Blessed Trinity's first graduation occurred on May 24, 2003.cite web |url=http://www.btcatholic.org/content.asp?id=1018 |title=History of BT |publisher= Blessed Trinity Catholic High School |accessdate=2007-02-18]

Athletics

The athletic program kept pace with the school’s growth, and by the fourth year fielded 19 varsity teams, expanded to 22 in 2004-2005 with the addition of competition cheerleading and boys and girls lacrosse. Blessed Trinity has risen in the ranks of the state's athletic programs since beginning a varsity athletic program in 2002. BT won the 2004 Directors Cup for class AA for having the top athletic program in AA. The school's first State Championship was won by the girls golf team, in May 2003 and the first state championship won by a boys team was cross country in October 2004.
