This past year (kindergarten) went very well. I was very saddened that so many of the parents were completely uninvolved and expected the teachers to raise their children and I think that has become an issue in the older grades. Although I'm not surprised to hear that there is favoritism (as with any school really), I have not seen it in the teacher's children myself. I don't like that last year they pretty much celebrated Halloween, but it seems that it has at least been rectified and I would have had to dealt with it in public school a lot more. All in all so far we have had pretty good experiences here and hope to have a good one next year. On a side note, they have worked wonderfully with us who are attending through the Step Up For Students program. I know many people using this tuition aid and have heard no complaints that weren't rooted with the SUFS program itself.

This school has this big open house to collect reregistration fees from parents but if your child is not the right color or have a certain academic status the tell you they won't accept your child after they get their registration money. They don't even give your child the chance to get into the school its a money making scheme and is not Godly not is it right. Children should not be rejected due to race or intellectual abilities. A cash paying white child will have no problem getting in so you guys are probably the ones writing good reviews here.

My oldest has attended since elementary school and will graduate from the high school. We have been very pleased with the academics, extra curricular activities and expectations there. Honors classes, dual enrollment with Daytona State as well as a wonderful fine arts program highlight a wonderful alternative to the area schools. Teachers genuinely care for the students and the administration is always willing to listen to parental concerns. I would recommend this school to anyone who is currently looking to enroll their child in a school in Deltona.

Trinity was an amazing school that I will always be grateful for. The staff there genuinely care for the students and the presence of god that you will encounter there will change your life. As an alumni I will always be thankful to the administration and how they looked out for me and the chances I got to grow as a leader and even gain college credit. I graduated with a 4.6 having 90% of my general education courses done for college. There will always be nay Sayers to any great organization but please believe me when I say trinity is a safe environment where children can grow in god and be prepared for their future.

I must say I'm quite surprised and a little bit disturbed by the volume of negative reviews of TCA. I actually had to back track to make sure I was reading about the right school....smh. Both of my children have been attending the school since preschool and are currently still in elementary school. My experience has been really positive! The teachers and administrators have been very caring, accommodating, and professional and I have always been satisfied with their approach to any concerns I have had. Now I happen to be a full time homemaker which allows me the time to be vigilant about keeping an open line of communication with my kids' teachers. I think that teachers appreciate parents who are proactive and work with them to help yield the best possible learning outcomes; and as with anything else in life, I think that you get out what you put in and everything isn't for everybody. TCA (at least the elementary school) is helping me to provide a quality Christian education for my children and I would recommend this school to anyone without hesitation. As long as you have reasonable expectations and stay involved in your kids' educational journey.

I have to say after listening to both of my children that attended Trinity and graduated from there I am disappointed and they are truly not prepared for the real world. They were in no way up to speed and prepared for college. The comments made here are true. We watched the school go from a caring environment to a money hungry business. Sports was something everyone participated in, students were valued. Now the school is about a sports program, importing student and giving away tuition to get who they want. Rules such as the dress code are not applied to everyone and family members of staff are so obviously favored it is ridiculous. Spend one night at an awards ceremony and you will see it. My children have been disciplined for situations when staff family members were given a free pass. This of course included the headmasters own daughter in her years there. As for cost's, yes every year they go up, "improvement fee's" are added and are mandatory. The leadership of the school definitely is arrogant and condescending. At one point in time Mr. Robinson had a sign on his office door that stated something to the point of "it bothers me that people do not salute me when they enter"

Pre-K and kindergarten were the only great years. 1st grade a new teacher came on board and although she was very friendly, she was far too lenient and the kids ran the show. Second grade my daughter ended up with the extreme opposite, a teacher who acted like a drill sergeant and was rude to parents. I debated taking her out after that, but my daughter pleaded with me to just see how next year would be so she could be with her friends. Third grade her teacher was great and I thought I was finally seeing improvements. That was until I seen her Stanford scores. Due to financial reasons I was not able to get her report card or scores (they refuse to give them until your balance is $0) until the end of summer. By then I had already paid and signed her up for 4th grade, being I thought the prior year was such a success. She ended up scoring below average in math and spelling. Yet she was on honor roll every year with straight A's. Doesn't make sense, right? So I started to search reviews to see I wasn't the only one concerned and it seems other parents have noticed they are far behind academically also. I'm currently looking at other school options to get her out ASAP.

We enrolled our son into Trinity last year (5th grade)and couldn't be any happier for our decision of doing so. Yes, getting good grades is encouraged and important in our home but so are having good morals/values. With good Christian values, life will bring you clearer decisions when in doubt. As a father/mother who is involved in our son's life, we encourage sternness and consequences if our son does wrong. How will he learn from his mistakes otherwise? Thank you Mr. Robinson, Mr. Henderson, Ms. Rumler & TCA Staff. Because of you we have seen our son excel not only with his grades and accomplishments but grow with his Faith as well. We rate this school an A+

When I enrolled my son in the preschool program here I was so excited to be putting him in a "top notch" program. My ex-husband and I then went through a divorce. As a result, our son started having some behavioral issues. We simply needed to work through them. Within two days of the problems surfacing my son was kicked out of their program. He was placed into a very caring day school after that who worked with him and us. His issues were quickly resolved. The people here are not caring or understanding. If you don't fit their cookie cutter mold, expect your child to be discarded like unfit trash.

Trinity Christian Academy is a great school with excellent programs. For a relatively small private school, Trinity provides opportunities in sports, art, music and drama that many private schools are not able to do. They have excellent teachers and a quality program. If your child has special needs, they do not have programs designed for those who are challenged educationally. They do offer dual enrollment and honors classes. However, if your child is exceptionally gifted, they do not offer baccalaureate or A.P. classes. My students have been here for 3 years and I couldn't be happier. If you want a private school and are happy with the Christian emphasis, this is the one for you in Deltona. It is accredited. It isn't perfect, but no school is. Good communication between school and parents if you have a computer.

This is the worst school in Deltona for real if you never get in trouble at school be prepared to get in some kind of trouble at this school unless your parent works their. I would have gave it no stars but I had to give it at least one. The Principal and vice Principal don't listen to anything the students have to say an instead just give them detention and Saturday school for the dumbest stuff like chewing gum or having your shirt not tucked in. If your late more than 3 times you have to pay 5 dollars for every late after that and all the students talk about is how much they all hate it their trust me do not put your kids in thins money hungry school.

I have been at Trinity my whole life pretty much, and I would have to say that it isn't the worst, but it most definitely is not the best. It seems like all of their money goes to football and baseball, and the couldn't care less about any other program. However, I feel like they have been improving slightly with teachers, caring about students, etc. With some of the teachers, it feels like they just picked them up at a gas station or something. They don't know how to teach, discipline, or when to just say a firm "stop". If you're a child of a staff member, you can basically get away with whatever you want, and I mean that literally. However, some other teachers are the complete opposite, which is a good thing. If you're expecting a great drama program in high school, you can forget it. There isn't even one in high school.

I have all of my children enrolled at Trinity and I couldn't be more pleased. Their preschool is clean and my two year old home everyday telling me all the activities he had done. The teachers and staff have been concerned and helpful, willing to work with my children. As far as private school is concerned they have so much more to offer my children than other private and even some public schools. On top of that, the environment is close and friendly, a secure place that I can feel comfortable sending my children to.

I only gave this school one star because I couldn't give it zero. This school is an uncomfortable place to learn. The staff are negligent to student's needs, and they are only interested in laying down the law rather than accommodating the needs of students academically. Trinity is only thinking of ways to nickel and dime, and not about ways to improve academics. I highly recommend to keep your children and wallet far away from this establishment.

My son attended TCA for two years (9th &10 th) grade. The baseball staff was very interested on him because of his talents. My son was diagnosed with ADD and the school teachers & coaches were aware of it. The second year he was disciplined by some behavior issues that involved not just him but others also. But he was the only one pusnished. I felt that this school is not a Christian one, marginate disable students and has favoritism. If you are a parent that clean the baseball field all the time and contibute monetary need to be a parent that participat with money your kid can get away with everything; if not the kid will be punished. TCA is asking for money constantly. I contribute to the baseball field that they have now, Be carefull with TCA.

I enrolled my child in this school with an open mind despite the reviews. However, after glancing at the books, I realize that this school is very much behind academically. Iwas shocked to see that my child has already learned about 3/4 of the contents of theMath book in her previous grade in public school. My child also stated that although the teacher is very nice, she is extremely disorganized and confuses the children when she jumps from one lesson to another. The children actually complained to eachother about it. From what I can observe, everyone appears extremely warm and nurturing. However, some teachers may be a bit too old to be teaching. I believe someone needs to evaluate the academic standards in comparison to public schools. If I continue to see a decline in her studies, I will have no choice but to take her out.

I never had a discipline problem and I left the school after one year. The school prices are constantly going up and most of the money is probably ging to their athletic program. The football players can do whatever they want to do. They need to invest in more computers, hardcover textbooks, and more teachers. My history teacher was swapped out three times last year. A student cannot function like that. A lot of these teachers have degrees in one subject, yet teach three. Elementary is ok. Middle and High School is hjorrible.

i have worked at trinity for almost 10 years now. i have seen it go from around 200 students to over 600. it is amazing how many students come back to tell us that they would give anything to be back here. there are many people who just don't fit into a certain type of school and become unhappy. that unhappiness usually comes from within. the leadership at trinity has turned this school around. we have discipline, rigor in academics, a wonderful fine arts progra and a great athletic program. your child can get all he/she needs at Trinity and a great christian education along with it. We seek to minister to every child that attends here the true love of Jesus and you can't get any better than that.

All they care about is the sport team Academically, students are way behind public school students. Teachers are old. The rest just do not care to challenge them. Barely any homework. Very partial to staff children and sports team. My child feel way behind compared to public school friends -- and she was a strait A student before coming here. Principal could care less about any of these concerns from the parents. They are not caring and loving toward the children as they should be. Actually they seem like they do not even like children, but they sure like money! And this is a 'christian school'! Save yourself the agrevation. Find another school. These people care more about the money , not the students or God for that matter.

Reading all of the forums on this website from previous students who say that they have not had a good learning experience at Trinity, I can honestly say that I believe them due to the spelling issues on many of these blogs. I also know from experience of having two of my children attend TCA. My son graduated, but took my daughter out after 2 years. Their idea of an honors class is to put them up one grade level and let it go at that. If it hadn't of been for me, the parent, suggesting that she be put into their 'honors' class it never would have been done. I don't believe they follow their students progress and try to challenge them enough. I am much happier with a public school.

My child has been attending TCA for several years now. Initially, I thought that the school was providing my child with a quality education. However, recently, I have begun to question this. The middle school level has the highest teacher/staff turn-over-rate that I have seen. Teachers leave in the middle of the school year, and parents are not immediately notified. They need to focus on acquiring and keeping quality teachers instead of demanding that parents pay for improvement fees for the building. I am very dissapointed with the school and will soon remove my child from TCA. I would reccomend elementary as a school but not middle school.

I attended Trinity for three years and had a horrible experience. After leaving I could honestly not think of one good thing to say about the school. They seem to only care about their football team, and if you are not a good player then expect to be treated unfair. They let there varsity members get away with just about anything and mistreat the rest. A large majority of the teachers seem to completely dislike kids and are impossible to communicate with. Others are very old in age and unfortunately cannot teach well. We gave the school are concerns about such teachers many times, but they never seemed to care or pay attention to what we had to say. The dean will never listen to your problems either unless you play football. Over all it was a very bad experience and I suggest you stay away.

I am a parent of a child that attends elementary at Trinity and we will definately not be returning for next school year. This school is really money hungry and there is a lack of discipline also.

The classes are overcrowded. The slower learners are mixed with the advanced kids. We pray more than we work. Prayer is good before school but religion should be taught at home. If you want to become a pastor then I would suggest tca. Other than that tca needs a makeover academically.

I transferred my child from this school due to the declining interest in the children and the obvious increase of interest in the 'bottom line' and overall decline in the school. My child had attended this school since kindergarten. While in elementary school I was satisfied with the school overall. There has however been tremendous faculty turnover which is not a good sign. I have found there to be an inconsistent application of discipline towards the students and pettiness among the staff. Hopefully the principal can provide the leadership to turn this back into a school where I would want to place my child.

My daughter has been at Trinity for 4 years now, starting in the preschool and now into the elementary school. I love the school. Every teacher she has had has been exceptional. They all have welcomed and encouraged input and involvement from parents. The atmosphere is friendly and safe. There has never been a day that my child did not want to go to school and in fact, even when she is sick, I have to force her to stay home. She enjoys going, enjoys being there and has sincerely loved each of her teachers. She has excelled both academically and spiritually. I would recommend this school to anyone who truly wants to take an active roll in their child's education and to see their child excel.

I would not reccoment this school to anyone I know! The school progress in teaching is much slower paced than should be, the students (in high school anyway) are not learning nearly as much. The information is not available for student access- small library, no internet access. The school is strick on the rules, but leanient on learning. Would have been much better off putting my child in a regular or a different private school.

My child was once a student at this school. I found that the only students that get the attention or the help they need are the children of the staff. The communication between staff and parents is horrendous. And their kindergarten teacher has had multiple complaints for her screaming at the students yet she continues to work there. This school is only interested in your wallet, not your child.

I was once a student not to long ago at this school. I found that this school was a school for students who were rejected from all other schools. If the Principal, vice-principal, and a vast amount of the teachers and students weren't bad enough, the education that this school served was unimaginably weak and outdated. For me this school was a horible and even deprising experiance. I highly recommend you do not send your children to this school.
