I went there a few years ago it was the worst time of my life. the students weren't civil and neither were the teachers. I was bullied and they did nothing. When I finally went back to public school I was told I would have to re take my courses because tcps wasn't as advanced as bradley, Bradley folks. I will never recommend that horrid school to anyone nor will my children ever go there.

We have three children at TCPS & are looking forward to our second year at the school. We have been amazed at the school's quality of education. The Christian leadership is outstanding & the teachers are excellent. Our children have blossomed this past year & are growing spiritually & academically. If you are looking for a wonderful Christian school, with academic excellence, TCPS is the place!

TCPS is a fantastic school with amazing teachers. My kids have been here for four years and I am frequently reminded of the difference a Christian education makes. They attend chapel each week and have Bible class. But there is more to it. Our children are learning to see the world as Christians and are getting the best education available - which is what should be expected at a Christian school. I thank God for TCPS every day!

We have 3 kids in the school and the transition had been great. Small clases and if there is any issues with the children they get you involved immediately. The teachers are easily accesible and they truly work to better your childs future.

My kids have been going to TCPS for 2 years now, and I am so pleased with their changed attitudes about school. They love their teachers, they love their classes, and their friends. They have made a huge turn-around. I am so glad I chose TCPS.

Our son began TCPS in 2nd grade and is now in the 6th. We feel that he is getting an excellent education. We are very pleased with the faculty and we feel that we have great parent/teacher communication. We have Basketball, Girls Volley Ball, Cheerleading, Golf, and a variety of Enrichment classes as well. Overall, we are very pleased with TCPS. (The name changed in 2008/09).

Our daughter has attended TCA for 3 yrs starting in Preschool. We are very happy with her level of learning and the staff is wonderful. I feel TCA has the best teachers in Bradley County.

My children have attended Tennessee Christian Academy (TCA) for three years. I am a strong believer in Christian education and feel that TCA offers a solid foundation in education and spiritual growth. The low student teacher ratio offers a more indvidualized learning enviroment. While TCA continues to grow, they have commited to excellence in academics.

I love TCA because of many reasons. First is the student/teacher ratio. It allows the teacher to take time with every individual student. The environment is without a doubt the best. Your child can go to school to learn without you worrying if there will be a stabbing, shooting or anything else that normally goes on in the public school system. The students & staff can also talk about God without any fear of offending someone. It is a non denominational school so all religious beliefs are welcome. It is not too big, but yet not too small. Your child can be well rounded socially, spiritually and educationally. It is a very family oriented school, where everyone is involved in every aspect of it. We have been there going on our 3rd year and couldn't be happier.

My children are attending this school for the very first time. I couldn't be happier with the teachers and leadership! The classes are small enough to be personal and large enough to offer solid social opportunities. More importantly, I love not having to worry about what type of social activity my kids are being introduced to. This school offers a wonderful place for kids to learn and for parents to get involved.

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.
