Student Tuition Aid or STA is a needs-based program to help families facing financial difficulties, unexpected challenges or crisis situations, such as the loss of a loved one or a job. The STA program does not provide full scholarships but assists families with a high level of need. Philanthropic support for STA is raised annually through funding opportunities, sponsorships, North Texas Giving Day, named endowments and fundraising events.

The TCA Board of Trustees, Foundation Board and leadership have set a bold vision for the future of our school, the Pursuing Excellence Campaign. More than a building campaign, this new master plan outlines a multi-phase project that will transform our 40-acre campus. It sets in motion TCA's course for the future: academically, spiritually, and through athletics and the arts. The campus redesign will advance our mission by supporting 21st century learning and is designed to enhance community and relationships – hallmarks of a TCA education. Click here to learn more.
When you support TCA, you are helping to develop the heart, soul, mind and strength of students. In addition to STA and the Pursuing Excellence Campaign, you can support the greatest needs of TCA by giving an Unrestricted gift. To give to a specific project, select Other on the donation form and provide the designation.
The Investment Committee for TCA Foundation oversees the management of the endowment that benefits TCA. The endowment is invested to provide needed income in a predictable way while seeking to grow the balance of the fund over time.
Named endowments are established and funded by donors to meet specific needs and often to honor or remember people who have made a significant impact on their lives.
At TCA Foundation, most named endowments benefit Student Tuition Aid and Teacher Enrichment. The minimum amount to establish an endowment is $25,000.
