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 would not send my children here. The academics are fine, but the atmosphere is horrible.
TCA is a breath of fresh air in today's educational environment. My child has thrived in the nurtured and disciplined environment.
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!!!!
Trinity Christian Academy provides excellent academic learning in a Christian atmosphere to encourage the best values for young minds.
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 four children went to TCA and all loved it. I had one graduate and is now at a fantastic college. The three younger teenagers had to move and when they went to their new shcool it did not match up to TCA.
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!
