From our initial visit we had a very hard time getting administration to answer the phone and they would never return VMs. This was my first red flag. In jan I was assured my son was on the wait list for aug and that he had a spot since only one other baby was registered for august. I received a follow up VM in April from Sylvia confirming again that we are on the wait list for aug and that SHE would call me in July to get my sons exact start date. I never got a call back in July so I called on Aug 5th to confirm my sons start date and they advised me they were booked through the fall. Sylvia said that I was supposed to call her back once the baby was born to tell them when he would start. Sylvia then went on to say she changed positions and I would have to talk to the new lady in registration..trinity dropped the ball on my registration leaving me less than 30 days to find a new day care with immediate openings. I never received any sort of apology and was just transferred to the VM of the new registration person. Administration is very scattered and no one takes responsibility let alone answers their phones.

my children enjoyed elementary school while there, the teachers were very devoted to the students' academics and spiritual lives. It changed in middle school and high school. I wish I had put them in public school after 4th grade.

I have nothing but praise for the wonderful Christian teachers and administrators. This was the first year that our 11th grader attended TCA. It is obvious that they love children of all ages. There were a few bumps for her along the way, but with their encouragement and support she has definitely become a more confident person. Thank you TCA!

Precious Staff and teachers. Never a bad experience. All are Very Concerned when it comes to my child needs. No perfect school- as no perfect persons. Parents always must assume responsibility as their child first-teacher. If your expectiations are set really high? Then would hope you can home school.

We have two sons who attended Trinity from Kinder through graduation. Both earned scholarships to private colleges in Texas and were very successful in their college experiences. They also earned college credit through the dual credit program, which saved them time and us money. The teachers are all degreed and ACSI certified and almost all are state certified as well. These men and women go above and beyond what is expected to help children be successful. Like any place, everything was not always perfect but we found the teachers and administrators to be approachable and willing to find ways to help us help our kids. Trinity is a great family environment with a solid academic plan, and strong spiritual formation. Do your homework in finding a school that is a great fit for your family - remember every school isn't for every kid - Trinity was great for both of ours!

Have to agree with previous entry-something must change at this school. Administration not stepping up to resolve problems. No follow up to complaints. We are finding a different private school for our kids.

New to the school this year. So far, my children love their teachers and they truly seem to care about the students. I like that the teachers are experienced and go above and beyond to help - not always found in public schools. Administration seems to be easy to work with and responsive to issues. I would give an above avg rating, but not sure about academics. It wouldn't appear to be the strongest curriculum (or test scores) compared to other private and public schools - the jury is still out on this. But it's a nice size school, has a pleasant environment, is spiritually strong and strives to improve and work with families. Parents HAVE TO BE INVOLVED in their kids education no matter where you go.

Horrible, horrible school. Teachers not teaching effectively, principal and staff deaf to appeals. Sour attitudes no matter how politely you approach them. Have dealt with belligerant, rude, and unhelpful staff and teachers. Power runs amok here, and something has gone terribly wrong. Don't make the mistake we did of believing everything we were told before enrolling. Shame on this school. They simply don't provide a quality education for the money. Will now be looking for another private school with higher teaching standards and better leadership.

The elementary school is great and truly a ministry of God and lead by a very organized adminstration. However, I had a child in the preschool and there is a tremendous lack of organization and very high teacher turnover. There also seems to be a lack of support for their teachers, I have witnessed teachers with children as young as 20 months old struggling by themselves with almost 15 children. I had to once go fetch someone (a task in itself) to help them out. I would wait to take my child to the elementary when they begin kindergarten, you can find a better quality preschool for the amount you pay.

The elementary school is excellent. The teachers have a heart for God and the children. They pray daily before school for the children and their families. The teachers are all certified by the state and very qualified to teach what they teach. The administration this year is awsome. They are striving to make sure that all students are doing the right thing according to God and the school guidelines. I have two children attending the elementary, and they have been very happy to come back each year.

My child has been with the preschool for 3 years now and I was very happy until they hired Jeannien (new director) it has been very unorganized and things are handle very poorly. Do not take your child to the preschool.

2 of my daughters graduated from Trinity Christian Academy. It was a great experience. The school really prepared them for their college careers. I also had a daughter who went there until 8th grade. She is now in public school and she has done great academically.

Our family has been at Trinity for 13 years. We have 2 children. Our oldest graduated with honors, 12 hours of college credit and was accepted at a major Big 12 university on an academic scholarship. He is on the deans list there and was invited to participate in the honors program. Our younger child is in middle school. We had an opportunity to move to another city and he wouldn't hear of it because he intends to graduate from TCA. The school personnel genuinely care about the students and their families. Everything has not always been perfect, but perfection is only found in heaven! TCA is a great choice if you are looking for a small, friendly, academic institution.

My child has gone to Trinity for several years now. The overall experience has been wonderful, and the teachers are great. The education they give is outstanding with the christian foudation. My child loves getting up to go to school, which makes me happy.
