School Reviews

We are extremely pleased with the quality Christian education, great academics, and the spiritual emphasis of Tri-City Christian School. The teachers love their students, and they are genuine Christian role models. We very much appreciate their sacrificial work for all of the children. The academics are top-rated. TCCS is always far ahead of nationwide averages on the ACT (college admissions test) and the Stanford Achievement Tests (a nationwide standardized achievement test series). Our children all went on to get university degrees. There are many extracurricular activities: sports, music, drama, and Bible quiz teams. I have seen many Christian schools as I have been at events that Tri-City participated in. Very few have the quality facilities that TCCS is blessed with. In short, we thank the Lord for Tri-City Christian School, and we recommend it to others.
