TCS has a strong academic program resulting in high achievement test scores annually and in successful college experiences by our graduates.
Our program consists of controlled, orderly, Christian environment using challenging, Christian curriculum.
Bob Jones University Press and ABeka are the main curriculum sources.
Our Kindergarten program, with its phonics based reading program, provides a strong foundation for academic success.
Our K-5 students test out in the top five percent nationally every year.
TCS uses the Alabama Course of Study as a guide for course offerings with the exception of Bible classes which all students take every year.
With academic excellence as our goal, our students are challenged to compete on state and national levels with other Christian schools in academic testing, spelling bees, as well as fine arts.
We occasionally bring in special educators to teach classes, speak to the student body, or lead in educational tours.
