Trinity Christian Academy is an excellent school and by far the best school my children have gone to. We were in search of a school that could help our children with higher education, christian values and one on one leadership. Not only have we found this, but have been overwhelmed at how much attention and love goes into these children's lives. They are moving towards being the most advanced school in Taney county for sure and we are proud to donate anything we can in equipment, software and technical training to assist in this school. Our children tell us everything and not once have we heard any of these accusations. The administration is so focused on the integrity of the students needs that it shames the public school systems methods of mass production education that is severely dumbed down due to common core. This school is not common core and in fact exceeds requirements that allow graduating students to enter their collegiate careers in a more grounded manner. In a nutshell, I love this School and hope everyone who reads this to give them a chance but most of all give your child one here.

Our daughter has flourished under the caring and loving guidance of both faculty and staff. Jesus is always the focus. The leadership exudes the heart of ministry and walk the talk. If you're prayerfully considering TCA as we did, we know God answered our prayers.

Trinity Christian Academy has been a great school for my grandchildren. It is truly a God-send for them! Teachers and staff are the most loving, compassionate that I have seen, and I have taught in both public and private schools. I am very impressed by the student body in their respect each other and for their teachers. Certainly there are rare exceptions, but overall they are exceptional. I would recommend this school to any parents looking for a Christian education with high academic standards.

I have to comment on the negative feed back too. Whoever keeps bashing this school is probably one of the teachers who got fired. My kid has great esteem. She is a kid who never gets in trouble because she was too shy in the first place. So how would getting away with anything make her have high self esteem? It wouldn't. She got confidence through the teachers there and staff living by example. Now she still is a good kid and has confidence.

My two children have been at trinity for over 2 years, I have to comment on the negative feedback, I have witnessed first hand how kind and goodhearted the upperclassmen are, the older kids treat my kids as if they are their brother or sister, with genuine love

To whomever said their child loves school now, that is probably because she can do whatever she wants there with no consequences. To the lady shocked at the bad reviews; I think that review came straight from TCA's office, which isn't a good place to be if you value honesty.

If you care about the spiritual well being of your children, you will NOT send them to this school. The cussing and lewd behavior that is tolerated and condoned in the junior and senior high is appalling. The Administration does not uphold the "high standard" their own handbook portrays. When our children attended this school, they were subjected to every foul cuss word imaginable and exposed to lewd and salacious behavior by upper level classmates. There is a great decline in enrollment once students reach the junior and senior levels due to the lasciviousness that is bred in the upper level grades. This is NOT a Christian school. It is a reform school. They accept students that the public schools have rejected all under the guise of, "We're a mission school." The school is white-washed in Christianity. It doesn't take very long at all for the true colors of many of the upper level students to come out. Please be warned and do not let your precious children be the next victim to the unrighteousness that permeates the walls of that school.

I am really shocked to read such negative reviews. We have had an excellent experience at TCA. I have found the administration to be caring people who really believe in faith and learning and the teachers to be both qualified and kind. My only assumption would be that some people who did not get their way about something chose to write negative reviews. Critiicism is usually a sign of strong standards.

Stay away from this school if you value your child's education and well being. The Administration is under-qualified and overwhelmed. The lewdness, cussing and bullying is rampant. Your Christian child will be exposed to the worst of what the public schools have. This is a Christian school in NAME only. The administrators DO NOT enforce their own policies. Avoid this place at all costs if you love your child or value a Christian education. This school will not make it long term. The hammer is gonna drop on them very soon. I am shocked that ORU accredits this school.

Beware... A definite lack of administrative professionalism as well as discipline create a negative learning environment. Christian values are "preached" but not demonstrated. It is a alarming and disturbing example of a Christian school.

Trinity Christian Academy in Hollister, Mo. could be a great school. However the administrative leadership at this school lacks competence, experience, and professionalism to lead a school. The facilities leave a lot to be desired. Ask a lot of questions before sending your child to school here. Most teachers are great and the ABecka curriculum is some of the best.

New Life is a great school. They really know what they are doing. Besides an outstanding education they are surrounded by a great enviroment of people.
