My oldest daughter has been going to Trinity for 3 years now and she loves it. The teachers are tough, but caring. And they are loyal to the school. In fact, their are teachers who grandchildren, mother, daughters and other relative that teach and volunteer at Trinity, because they believe in the school success. Also, the teacher would take the timeout to get to know each parent and their children. And they would let you know every month where your child is academically. Therefore, I plan on having my children attend Trinity all the way through high school

Why are the published SAT and ACT scores of Trinity Christian college bound Seniors so much lower than those of Bolles and Episcopal students?

My son is already third year in the Trinity Christian Academy. I love it! My son love to go to the school. My friends, who's children are in the school, recommended me to apply for scholarship and to enroll my son in TCA three years ago, and I am so thankful to them for the recommendation. High academic level, good discipline, dedicated teachers and great attention to important moral values. Bullies are not tolerated. I always have had quick responses from the teachers and always was answered all interested me questions. My son is learning Spanish there and I am so proud of him. There are security cameras everywhere, that I really like. To families who are like me cannot afford the payments I would recommend to apply for scholarship. Thanks to the scholarship my son goes to this great school. You can always ask about scholarships in the school. I highly recommend Trinity Cristian Academy to my friends and everyone who is looking for to enroll their child in a good school.

Just an incredible private school all the way around. The people on here complaining about how the school didn't help there bad child is a joke. The teachers work so hard to teach and provide an amazing atmosphere for every child. But if your poorly raised child doesn't behave, thankfully Trinity will ask for you to remove them. Your terrible parenting shouldn't hurt the children around that really want to learn.

I see from reading some of the comments some parents are not happy with TCA, for different reasons. I have 2 daughters at TCA 10th and 6th grades. I on the other hand do not have any complaints about the school. I feel they do an excellent job in providing a conservative Christian education and commend their staff for doing an excellent job. My daughters do not go to school to play sports they go to school to glorify God and honor their parents with making good grades as well as being good community members. Since I am a lifetime resident of Jacksonville and know how horrible the Duval County school system really is I would prefer my children attend a private school. I would also prefer one that provided the values that I believe in. If someone has negative dealings with TCA it is probably their own fault for whatever reason, I don t believe the school starts their day with who can we cause problems for today. Doors of further education defiantly get opened at TCA.

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.

I attended school here from K-12 and my oldest son is now in the Kindergarten. Every school will have its setbacks especially given the size of Trinity. However, it is clear to me that most of the teachers love their students and love Jesus Christ. This school has had a fantastic influence on my family over the many years of my involvement. I highly recommend.

My child attended TCA 1997-2013 The leadership of administration is poor at best. The teachers are underpaid and required to be a member and attend Trinity church (10% of their pay checks go back to the institution through tithing ) The football program seems to be the main focus. There is no recognition for female sports! Typical politics has stricken the performance of the academy. There are many "unspoken" issues within the academy. If your child transfers to TCA and has not attended the academy from elementary up, more than likely they will not feel accepted by a majority of the students. That being said, my child is graduating with honors due to self-motivation and the support of a "few" caring teachers. If you choose TCA I strongly recommend you put aside an account for tutoring. Depending on the teacher your child has been assigned. Honors classes are limited. Overall, I feel if a teacher is employed by TCA it is because they love the Christian teaching or they are a family member of administration. If you get to checking, most all employees and teachers are related in some way.

I sent my son to TCA from the time he was 2 years old until he was almost 4. When he began attending their three-year-old program it all went downhill. They made those children sit in their seats all day long, and they did not have as much fun as I thought they should be having. He was not a threat to other students or himself, but they called me everyday to discipline him and they could not control him. They suspended my little boy on more than one occasion and he hated going to that school. Trinity was one of the worst experience that I have had in the four years my son has been on this earth and when he begins Kindergarten I will be more careful when picking a private school for my child.

Sending my son to this school for Pre-K was the biggest mistake I have ever made as far as he is concerned! I am competely disgusted and disappointed with this program!!! He hates going to school everyday. He is not challenged at all by what he is 'learning'. He learns more from me at home. There are no activities for these kids. There is absolutely no individualism allowed. They teach them to shut up, sit down and conform. The teachers only acknowledge them as individuals when they do something wrong. Especially when something is done wrong to one of the children that belong to their more 'prominent parents'. You expect a private school to be stuck up, but they take their arrogance to a whole other level. I feel as if they only allow pre-k kids there in order to receive the state's money. Otherwise they could care less.

I went to TCA for 11 years, graduated, and now have 4 of my children at the school. I am so grateful for the character and Christian influence the school poured into into me and is pouring into my children. The teachers truly love the students and my children love school because of it!

I love TCA the environment is great and my volleyball and soccer coach are both great! My teachers are always there if I need help with anything and very understanding if something we're to happen and I couldn't get something done on time. All the students are great, and our football program is amazing my brother improved so much and all the coachs in every sport will see your potential! I Love being a Lady Conquer!!!!

My son is in 1st grade and has been going to Trinity since Pre-K. These kids are learning and grasping many things I learned in 2nd and 3rd grade public schools. I'm 100% sure if I had to take my son out of Trinity because of financial reasons he would be in advanced classes or even skip a grade in public schooling. When 1st grade started up I looked at the work he was doing and thought NO WAY! but he picked it up and has never made a C on his report card (going on 3rd report card) It's amazing how much they learn. In all fairness it is a lot for one child to remember everything he has been taught but it prepares them and makes it easier for them year after year.

We have had three children graduate from Trinity. We could not have been more pleased with the entire experience spiritually, educationally, and extra-curricular. There are great programs and facilities. I appreciate the dedicated faculty and staff and the concern that they demonstrate for the students.

I have two boys at Trinity and they are both in elementary. My experience has been great. The teachers love the children. I think if that is in place everything else works out fine. The course work is challenging, and while I may be biased I think my kids are smarter than most because of it.

My son went to TCA from the 4th grade until 11th grade last year. The biggest problem I have with TCA is that the football program is valued more than the educational system and football players do not get dusciplined in the same way as everyone else.

I have three children attending Trinity Christian Academy, pre-k, kindergarten and 3rd grade. This is our first year and we have been extremely pleased. Children need structure and routine and TCA certainly provides that in a loving environment. There is not a high turn over rate at TCA where the staff is concerned. Many of the staff members have been there for years and some of them have grown children that attended and now grandchildren. Trinity offers a good curriculum for elementary students as well as offering a Christian foundation. I definitely think that we are getting a good value for our money and our kiddos are happy!

Both our sons went to Trinity from K-4 to High School. Each has done very well and is completely prepared for college. The teachers are excellent. They may be strict, but have always proven to be fair and sincerely interested in the boys, educationally, spiritually and in every way. The school is top-ranked in music and sports, having graduated some highly successful, professional young people in many fields, including politics, sports, music, business, medicine, and law. I thank God for TCA, and recommend it to any Christian parent - check it out before limiting your kids in a smaller school. Because of the school's academic excellence, I know of some graduates who have boasted how easy college is, and I have never heard of any student being turned down from any college they've submitted an application to simply because they went to a Christian school. God bless TCA!

I attented tca for 9th until my graduation in 1th grade. I have to say I had some of the best times of my life there, but it wasnt because of the greatnss of the school. Football gave me some memories I will never forget. (2 State championships in a row, life long friends.) But I learned a lot about the baptist school program from my four years of observing. For one, if you do not go to their church,you are immediatly looked down upon. Its funny to see how some families like to get all buddy buddy with the high ups in the school. Also, they dont want you to make your own decision about your faith. An ok school if you can think for yourself and ont be swayed.

Trinity has my full endorsement. My son graduated from the Academy in 2005. He was a student there from K-4 through high school. He is now in college maintaining a high GPA. We are extremely pleased with the education he received while at Trinity and feel that TCA has greatly impacted his life in a positive way. Also, he was influenced spiritually by many godly teachers over the years while at the Academy. I would highly recommend Trinity to anyone who was looking for a school for his child where he or she would be challenged both academically and spiritually.

Overall, I feel that TCA is a good school. Some of our children have already graduated from TCA and others are still attending. We have been very happy with the elementary and jr. high schools. We do, however, feel that the sr. high could use improvement. They place entirely too much emphasis on the football program and treat star athletes differently than other students. It seems that the current dean does not feel that it is necessary for star athletes to follow the guidelines that are printed in the handbook and which are expected of other students. So long as they are great athletes, they can do as they please. Academically, it's a great school and our children are receiving a great education. If the focus in high school was changed from football to 'school', it would be a much better school.

I have had three sons go to TCA. I have been very pleased and they were also. One is now a nurse and the other son just became a lawyer. My third son is just trying to decide about life but is thrilled with TCA. I am in the last two years and the type of students that are here now. The football program seems to be the prime concern for the school. I believe the school is weak in English and spelling but have turned out good, moral students at graduation time. I am pleased with that. Extra curricula activities are weak though. Over all you will not be disappointed if you send your child to TCA.

I have had two children graduate from TCA and both have gone on to college. According to them they know more about english than most of their college peers. I do know TCA fell short in the foriegn language department. However, one child was diagnosed with a learning disability the summer after nineth grade, went to TCA's summer school program and then into their learning disability program in tenth grade. It was amazing the difference, her GPA went from 2.2 to 3.8 in one year. Her reading level went from below nineth grade level to post highschool level in the first nine weeks. Her self esteem soared. I can not say enough good things about that program.

Wonderful environment for your student. They are a large school that does everything they can to provide the individual attention each student needs. Being such a slarge school, they are even able to offer some support for those students with specific learning needs. You should check it out; it may be the right fit for you family.

My daughter has just finished seventh grade at this school. I feel she is in a safe environment when I drop her off in the mornings. She loves this school and fits in with all of her peers. after hearing about the bullying, fighting, cursing, drugs, and lack of Christianity in the public school environments, I am blessed to be able to send my child to Trinity.

It is overall a good school but the high school teachers are lacking. their is a major different in the teachers in the jr. high and those in the high school. the jr. high teachers are great but I would say the teachers in the 10 and 11 grade are lacking on their skills of teaching.

The ILC program at TCA lacks integrity. One of the two teachers is an angry individual and should not be working with children. She makes up her own rules and challenges her students to figure out what those ever-changing rules are. She often marks completely correct book answers wrong. I do not recommend this program for anyone's children. I have a second child enrolled in the pre-school classes. His teachers are excellent.
