I sent 3 kids to this school, 2 to First Baptist, and 1 to Shelton; all for different reasons and for different 'fits'. For kids that learn in a main stream way, this is an expensive school that is worth well over twice what we paid. I believe that it is by far the best co-ed college prep education in the DFW area. But, they are geared to merge kids into a top university. Their History and English curriculum is better than I had in College, in a Science major. Their Math curriculum is amazing. My daughter went straight into Calc 3 from high school with no problem. Football, Baseball, Basketball, Volleyball, Soccer, and Track are well regarded and competitive at the top levels in the city. With only 100 Srs, they routinely compete with and often beat some of the top 5A public schools in the state.

Great school! Great student to teacher ratio. Sports teach discipline and they always pray before games.

I attended Trinity from 2nd grade through graduation. The education I received was superb. Most importantly, the emphasis on training the whole child for the glory of God prepared me for the 'battles' of life.

Academic programs are top notch, sending graduates to top state schools and IVY league schools. Classroom size is small and personal. Activities are not at broad as other public schools, but all students encouraged to be involved. Great school spirit in parents and students overall. Many parents are encouraged to be involved from early on in both class and sports acitivies. Teachers have a genuine love and care for your children and emphasize character development both spiritually and mentally.

We consider ourselves fortunate to be able to send our children to TCA. The quality of their education and daily experiences are immeasurable. We came from another private school (non-Christian) in the area and we did not have the level of kindness that we have found in the TCA community. Parents are incredibly involved in the daily functions of the school and our children LOVE IT here!

TCA is amazing. I went to this school for many years. To be honest, heres how it is. The staff is pretty good, the teachers care about you alot. The administration is a little nosy, but only because the school is strict on what it says is okay and what isnt. The students are very nice but I would encourage you to start attending as soon as possible as it is easier to make friends that way. They have average sports... Football, Basketball, Volleyball, Soccer, Wrestling, Swiming... Overall this school is pretty good. The History/English is the main focus of the school, so it is more difficult than the others. Foreign Language (Spanish) is not as rigorous as it could be, but the teachers are good at what they are told to do. uniforms required, you can wear jeans on fridays in high school. TCA is very welcoming and warm.

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.
