Tennessee Christian Preparatory School

  • 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.
