Trinity Episcopal School announced Oct. 15 that the private school is under contract to purchase the preschool next door, Elsass Academy. Gil and Candace Elsass have owned and operated the Elsass Academy at 4015 Bee Caves Road, West Lake Hills, since 1991, and according to a press release from Trinity Episcopal, the company approached Trinity in late 2019 with a proposal. Elsass Academy, which serves children from 18 months to 4 years old will continue to operate as usual after Trinity fully takes over operations Jan. 1.

“The purchase of Elsass Academy Westlake bolsters Trinity’s options, flexibility, and outreach. This is a historic and forward-looking action we believe immensely benefits our Trinity Community,” Trinity Head of School Jennifer Morgan said in the release. 512-472-9525.
