Traders Point Christian Academy (TPCA) is a private Christian school located in southwest Boone County and serves preschool through high school students from Zionsville, Carmel, Lebanon, Brownsburg and northwest Marion County.
Since 1976, Traders Point Christian Academy (TPCA) has offered an exceptional Christian education to children ages two and older.
A complete education should impart knowledge, skills, morals, values, and the Bible's standards for how to respond to life.
At TPCA, we focus on developing students to their highest potential academically, spiritually, culturally and technologically.
The result is your child will truly be prepared for real life in an increasingly complex world.
We believe that a complete education includes imparting knowledge and developing skills in the framework of a Christian values system.
Knowledge involves critical life skills such as learning vocabulary and math.
Skill development is the application of knowledge, which allows children to become more self-directed and sets the stage for lifelong learning.
But knowledge and skills are not enough to equip a child to succeed in the world.
The heart must be enriched with a value system through which knowledge is evaluated, skills are applied, and decisions are made.
Teaching Christian worldview provides the value system through which students learn how God wants them to behave, react, and respond to life.
