School Reviews

Our son attended Tuscaloosa Christian School 9th through 12th grade. It was a great experience for him and prepared him well for college. He graduated the University of Mobile with honors and often commented that the excellent English classes he had at Tuscaloosa Christian School prepared him well for college -level writing. Tuscaloosa Christian School provides a safe learning environment for students. TCS also provides competitive sports opportunities for the students. Our son enjoyed the opportunity to compete in basketball and baseball at TCS. We highly recommend Tuscaloosa Christian School for parents who want their students to experience academic excellence in a safe, Christian environment. TCS not only helps prepare students for college or the work-force, but also helps build their character to succeed in all of life.
