My children will not be returning. Make sure you are clear with administration if your child has any learning differences, and make sure the teacher is aware.

I was a student there from grade 1-7 and it was great but then I transferred to public school in 8th, then I went back to TCA because I missed it. The second time around it was awful they treat you different because you came from a public school and I didn't go to church anymore and they criticize me for it so I transferred back to Public School and I'm happy to say I will never go back to TCA.

Our daughter started at the Christian Academy this past fall and I cannot express how blessed we feel to have found this school. She looks forward to going to school everyday and she has progressed wonderfully. The faculty are very responsive and there is a true sense of teamwork between the teacher and the parents. We LOVE it!!!

My child will start The Christian Academy for the first time in August. I received a warm welcome from the faculty members that I have come into contact with thus far. We are looking forward to a life time experience for my child as well as myself.

Excellent academic and spiritual guidance that prepares your child for life in the 'real' world. My son transferred to TCA in the 12th grade ( after spending his previous years in a public school system). He said it was the best experience...the only regret being that he had not attended sooner.

This was my sons 1st year at TCA and I have never been more pleased with his progress and attitude towards learning. Since our first visit to TCA, when a student (of his own free will) personally invited my son to come and attend, through the first day of school when my son proclaimed, 'I love this school', to the end of our first year and the same excitement is there. The postive family atmosphere that centers around Jesus is what makes this school an asset to the community and the most valuable use of money that can be put toward my sons future. Even substituting and speaking with Jr and Sr high students the most moving thing has been when the children say, 'I'm not just a student - but, people actually care about me.'

A wonderful, warm environment for learning! The classical method of education teaches the children critical thinking skills, which are missing from many schools. Respect for others is held in hight regard. The students are not just names on the rollbook, they are truly known, nurtured and appreciated by the staff. Worth every penny we are investing in our children!

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
