There's More at TCA

TCA is more than a private, Christian school. It’s more than an education. More than teachers. More than students. More than football games, chapel and visual and performing arts.
 
TCA is more than a way of life.
 
It’s a way to life.
 
By providing the path to obtain the academic and spiritual tools they need, our students are free to grow and become successful members of society, as well as faithful disciples of Jesus Christ. Education and faith work in concert, as a means towards a larger goal. It is the integration of a Christian worldview into a strong and rigorous curriculum that drives our faculty to focus not only on what our students learn, but also who they become.
 
We guide our faculty, our students and their parents towards an experience and an atmosphere that promotes love, compassion and support through a unique sense of family and community. This bond that exists among current students, faculty and families, as well as our alumni, is a large part of the foundation upon which TCA sits.
 
We believe educating and developing the whole person for the glory of God is a journey. Filled with many twists, turns and stops along the way, the road to academic and spiritual growth is a long and challenging one. But we believe it is our responsibility to inspire a love of learning and to equip our students to pursue truth and discover the path that God has planned for them. 
Trinity Christian Academy is a private coeducational school for grades PreK–12 which offers Christian families and their children a demanding, college preparatory curriculum within a Christian community committed to integrating Biblical faith and learning.
