The Christian Academy

The Christian Academy is a dynamic and exciting culture of faculty, families, friends, students, and alumni that have a deep desire to make a difference in the lives of others and impact the world for Christ. We are unapologetic about our fierce and passionate commitment to Christian education and understand its critical role in our society. We integrate a Christian worldview throughout every aspect of school life to afford students the opportunity to discover and embrace God`s purpose for their lives. The Christian Academy offers an array of extracurricular activities including an excellent fine arts program, competitive athletic teams, and a broad selection of student activities. TCA is where students learn to put their knowledge into action, forge life-long friendships, and grow in their faith. Although our students come from different backgrounds, walks of life, and even different countries, we are still one family!.

School Notes

  • We stand without reservation on the absolutes of the Holy Bible and seek to interpret all of life and learning from the basis of the principles set forth in God`s Word. These convictions provide the framework for our entire educational program. In this framework, students develop their intellectual, spiritual, physical, emotional, and social potential to the end that their lives will glorify God.

I have been a TCA parent for the past 12 years. The academic programs are wonderful, my daughter will be graduating this year with 12 college credits! Both of my children have participated in the athletics and arts programs and done really well. And I can't say enough how wonderful the faculty are,not only are they knowledgeable, but they care deeply for all of the children at TCA. I would recommend TCA without reservation!
