Traders Point Christian Schools (TPCS) is a private Christian school located in southwest Boone County and serves preschool through high school students from Zionsville, Carmel, Lebanon, Brownsburg and northwest Marion County.
Since 1976, Traders Point Christian Schools (TPCS) has offered an exceptional Christian education to children ages 18 mos and older. A complete education should impart knowledge, skills, morals, values, and the Bible's standards for how to respond to life.
At TPCS, we focus on developing students to their highest individual potential academically, spiritually, culturally and technologically.
We value relationships and view that as the key to maximizing learning.
The result is your child will truly be prepared for real life in an increasingly complex world. We believe that a complete education includes imparting knowledge and developing skills within the framework of a Christian values system.
Knowledge involves critical life skills suchas learning vocabulary and math.
Skill development is the application of knowledge through experiential learning, which allows children to become more self-directed and sets the stage for lifelong learning.
But knowledge and skills are not enough to equip a child to succeed in the world.
The heart must be enriched with a value system through which knowledge is evaluated, skills are applied, and decisions are made.
Teaching Christian worldview provides the value system through which students learn how God wants them to behave, react, and respond to life.

As parents who were looking to integrate a Biblical worldview into our children's education, TPCA was an answer to our prayers. We would highly recommend TPCA. From the education, to the sports, to the music department, to the staff...everything about Traders Point is top notch

Our son has attended TPCA for pre-school and now Kindergarten. We hadn't originally planned to send him to a private achool for primary school but we were so impressed by the caring staff, exceptional teachers, and how well he was responding to the curriculum in pre-school there, we knew we had to make it work for him to attend for Kindergarten. Although tuition is high and the thought of financial aid was daunting, TPCA's staff was extremely kind and helpful, taking the fear out of it. Our son has blossomed in Kindergarten at TPCA, and we look forward to 11 more years at TPCA.
