Tennessee Christian Preparatory School is a PreK-12, Christ-centered, interdenominational, state certified school.
We offer parents in Cleveland/Bradley County an alternative for the education and formation of their children.
We strive to develop the student in all the important components of their lives.
We believe that God has made each person an intellectual, social, spiritual and physical being.
Failure to develop any of these components results in a malfunctioning person.
Christian Education is much more than an academic discipline taught by a teacher who is a Christian.
Christian Education represents a totally different worldview than secular education.
At Tennessee Christian Academy we view history and culture through the lens of Scripture, embracing a God-centered worldview.
Man is created by God and is responsible to God.
