Why Start at TCA?

THE START OF SOMETHING GREATER

Through our Early Childhood program, we are dedicated to the best academic education for our students and the strongest spiritual foundation. We know them and love them. Partnering with parents, we guide children through their early and most formative years — committed to strengthening both head and heart.

DISCOVER A DISTINCTIVE EDUCATION

Relying heavily on experience, insight and research, our administrators and faculty invest both time and study to identify best practices within a variety of curricula. With this knowledge, we are better able to offer teaching based on individual student need.

FIND FLEXIBILITY AND CONVENIENCE

Through thoughtful conversations with many of our parents, we made the decision to add both a 2-day and a 3-day option for preK, in addition to our 5-day program. These expanded offerings to our Early Childhood program give our parents and their children options that fit their needs and their lives.

TRUST IN STUDENT CARE AND SUPPORT

We know more than our students’ names. We know the individual strengths, challenges and opportunities that exist in each of their lives — all 450 of our Lower School students. Our Student Support Team meets regularly with teachers, to examine each child’s development, both academically and spiritually, in an effort to ensure each child’s gifts are being realized.
