Trinity College and High School

Trinity College and High School in Sioux City educated Catholic boys for some 50 years.

The college, a four-year Catholic educational institution, was opened in 1913 by Franciscan priests. In 1928, a high school was established in conjunction with the college. Marianist brothers took over operation of the college two years later.

Both schools operated at the site until they closed in 1949 with the opening of Bishop Heelan Catholic High School. Trinity then functioned briefly as a motherhouse for the Sisters of St. Benedict for several years.

From 1957 to 1968, Trinity became the site for a Catholic seminary training young men for the priesthood. (Photos of graduates and historical records from the seminary and the previous schools remain in the St. Joseph Center today at Trinity Heights.)

In 1969, Western Iowa Tech Community College leased the Trinity buildings for vocational educational training until the late 1970s.

In 1985, Queen of Peace was formed, and the 53 acres of the former Trinity College and High School were subsequently purchased. The aging buildings were razed in 1989 to make way for the grounds of Trinity Heights to honor and promote devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary Queen of Peace and the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
