TCA has an amazing group of staff and parents who have shown that they will go above and beyond to make sure the students have what they need!! My kids were loved, taught by excellent teachers and have great memories of TCA.

What a wonderful place to send your kids. We moved from Nashville, TN nearly 5 years ago. When we initially started looking for schools for our daughter, we knew the large class sizes in our local public schools would not serve our daughter well. In addition, my daughter loves God. She could not imagine learning and spending time with her friends without mentioning how good He is and listening to her teachers proclaim the same as well. When we came to TCA, it was the environment we were looking for. I feel great knowing that my daughter is growing spiritually, mentally and emotionally. Despite changes in leadership, I feel TCA is moving in the right direction and God's vision is being fullfilled. The teachers genuinely love what they do but most importantly love our children. They pray over them and our school, which creates an environmental of love, acceptance and forgiveness. I marvel at how my little girl is turning into a beautiful woman of God. There is no other place I would want to send my children.

Trinity Chapel Academy is an excellent school that cares about the students. I can only say that it healed the hurt of public middle school. Now, my son is a thriving high student and loves school. What was broken was fix at TCA. ITBS scores are higher than that of the surrounding schools. they are not perfect in the least but for me it was exactly what I needed for my son to be successful

Trinity Chapel Academy is not good. You should ask about the financial soundness of this school. What major events happened during 2012-2013? How much did the enrollment drop during 2012-2013? How many administrators and teachers left or were terminated during the 2012-2013 school year? How are ITBS scores for the students? Who is the principal for Middle and High School? How long have they been in that position? How many math and english teachers do they have for grades 6-12? Is the High School format changing due to low enrollment? When was that decision made? My son attended TCA for 7 years and public school for 2 years. When TCA encountered financial hardship, changes were made, a plan was presented, a promise of transparency was made, and we decided to stay the course. The promises are not being kept. There is no transparency! The accounting department personnel are EXTREMELY inefficient. April 2013, I asked why parents were not told that the plan was not being followed as presented. Response: any communication would have been more negative than positive. My account was incorrect for 13 months! ITBS scores are low. Be aware. Talk to parents who left.

My student has attended public school and TCA. By comparison, the public school teachers challenged the students more. Be very careful to ask questions about math placement. Also, most of the middle school homework grades are for completion only which has taught my student to just put an answer on the paper and you can still get a 100. The 100's look great in gradebook but it is not teaching the students to do their best and strive for correctness the first time. The middle school principle is defensive, makes examples out of students in class, and does not verify information before assuring parents that she is correct. She does not expect her staff to keep deadlines that have been set.. However, if a student turns in late HW, it is not accepted. She has not built an environment of trust between faculty, students, and parents. Prospective parents should also know that in middle school, your student is likely to have the same math and english teacher for 6th, 7th, and 8th grade. This is only great is the teacher is great. If your student is falling behind on standardized tests in math or english, there is no help for next year as it is the same teacher.

I have been going to this school for almost nine years. I have seen the school grow and progress. I think that the staff and administration have been a huge part of making the school succeed and move forward. I think that the academic level is high, as I am always challenged. The teachers help me to do the best I can possibly do in everything everything that I try. I think that the faculty teaches with true love for the students and for Jesus. (Which is what it's all about).

Had my child at TCA for two years. This year my child is in public school. What a difference academically! The instruction as well as the Georgia public school standards are superior to what TCA offers. My child is being challenged academically in a ways not received at TCA. As a parent, one needs to ask specific questions regarding curricula. At least be sure TCA is competitve with public schools. I have found they are not.

This is the best school that my children have ever attended. The teachers are exciting and very knowledgeable, the curriculum superb and the headmaster is exceptional. My children were previously in public school and after spending several years at TCA, they are both at the top of their class. If you want an excellent education for your child, TCA, is the school for you!

TCA is an amazing school for children to learn and increase in all areas-academically, spiritually, socially. The teachers and staff are very caring and they set high standards for the children to meet and exceed. It's like the old saying you get what you put into something. If you put forth excellence it will return. I really see a return of excellence from my children who attend TCA. Great job TCA keep up the good work!!

This school does not measure up to other private schools in Cobb. Lovely exterior, but that's the extent of it. School's test scores were horribly low last year. Not enough emphasis placed on academics. Teachers at various grade levels are non challant and do not encourage children towards success. Do YOUR homework before you put your child here!

My oldest son went to TCA during K-5 and my youngest has started now. I have never met more caring people for my children. I have seen teachers take extra care with children pray over them when they are hurt or upset as well as be firm when needed. I firmly believe the lessons that were taught to my oldest at such a young age are part of the reason he makes good choices now . I have seen the Head Master pour love and kindness to students. This school is amazing and I wouldn't want my sons to begin there education any were else.

My opinion this school is awesome all of my teachers are very loving, and the principal is very nice, loving, and professional. I am getting the education I need to succeed, and I don't feel like its very chaotic, everyone is not very clickish we accept everyone whether their different or not, because different is good. so, I <3 TCA!

My experience with TCA is that it is a good school, however you can find a better value for your private school $$. The staff could definantly benefit from professional development courses. It was not a hard decision to move my elementary child to another private school.

My children attended middle school at Trinity Chapel Academy. I moved them to another private school because they were not getting a quality education at TCA. The middle school at TCA is very disorganized and chaotic. Also, the staff and student body are very clickish. The middle school principle was not a capable person and was prone to use sarcasm when dealing with my kids. It has taken a year of tutors to get my kids caught up to the same level as the school I moved them to.

Challenging ciricullum, teachers who love their students, a growing school which is developing in to a first rate private school. Many activities, sports and a growing high school is making TCA the school of choice for solid private christian education.

Trinity does a wonderful job teaching the concepts of christianity. However, professional development is needed for some of the teachers, the administrators and staff. They mean well, but they really don't understand what is required of a 1st class private school.
