Our annual Science Fair gives children a chance to research and complete projects on subjects that interest them.  Projects are then presented to Judges who judge them based on content and presentation.  Many former students have told us that they were more than prepared for High School because of our advanced expectations and curriculum.
Children ages 2 1/2 and potty trained through age 5 enjoying spending the day in our preschool program.  Both half day and extended day options are available for parents depending on their needs.  Each classroom has a teacher and an aide to make sure that the children are safe and secure while in our care.
We are blessed to be able to have many military families as part of our school during their stay in New Jersey.  They enjoy knowing that their children are in a safe, secure environment that shares many of the same values that they hold important.

School Reviews

Great School, Amazing teachers, and a loving family atmosphere. Our daughter has been at TCA since preschool (now in 4th grade) and we have been blessed to watch her grow in faith and education. TCA has become an improtant part of our family. TCA has been the village helping to raise our children. They not only support the highest expectations on academic excellance but also social, moral and christian beliefs and behavior. There''s nothing too fancy about the school, but the students always shine. Individuality, creativity, and family values are key to our kids future and TCA exemplifies that. Proud Parents of a TCA HONOR student since preschool.

My daughter is in the 6th grade and has been here since preschool. TCA is like family to us, I can''t imagine being anywhere else! Great staff, advanced academics, small class size. Being a private school, teachers can teach to teach, not teach to the test as a lot of public schools do. Would strongly recommend to anyone who wants their child to learn in a safe loving environment.

Great Teachers, great curriculum, high expectations of the children in terms of moral compass and quality of work. My kids have been there since they were little. Leaving them there was like leaving them with trusted family. They have been a part of our lives as our children have grown and I owe a large part of their wonderfulness to the staff at TCA.

Great school, my kids have been here for 9 years. Art, Music, Band, Spanish, Computers, Library, Gym. Excellent Teachers, great parents, Academics excellent. High expectations for children to behave, be respectful and to excel to the best of their own abilities. Not a lot of sports, but there are enough other sports programs in the Eastampton area that it allows the school to make learning a priority, not sports while children can get their sportsmanship elsewhere. Not a lot of fancy bells and whistles as the school is very concerned about keeping it affordable for parents, but a quality education. Would strongly recommend!
