My daughter absolutely loves TCA! She has been attending since K4 and is currently in 4th grade. All of her teachers have been highly trained educators, while also showing compassion and concern for her spiritual relationship with God. The school has rigorous academics and also offers quality sports and music activities. TCA is definitely an important part of our life and we plan on keeping our daughter here for the foreseeable future.

We cannot speak highly enough of Tri-City Christian Academy! We have sent multiple children there, and we are truly treated like family. The academics are rigorous; no doubt our children have gained head knowledge, but more importantly, they have gained heart knowledge. They have deepened their personal relationship with Christ and have enjoyed deep relationships with fellow students. They have an excellent music program with incredibly talented fine arts teachers. There are many opportunities to participate in sports with encouraging coaches. Our children`s teachers truly care about both the academic and spiritual growth of each child. We appreciate the small-school atmosphere where even the principal know every student`s name (and not just because of behavior issues!). We are grateful for the opportunity to have our children attend TCA.

We cannot say enough good about TCA. This school is wonderful. Our son has attended Junior High and now High School at TCA. He is proud to be a Warrior. He has thrived academically and athletically. The teachers and administrators are loving, caring, and truly invested in the students. They care about each student as a person inside and outside the classroom. The students are taught the word of God in a way they can understand. They are sharing theirs faithfully. We are blessed to have our son attend TCA.

I am both a parent of two students at TCA and also alumni. I absolutely loved my years at TCA and both of my kids would tell you the same. TCA is a very well-rounded Christian school. It is a very unusual Christian school in that it stays true to what the Bible teaches, offers excellent academics, offers a competitive sports program from elementary thru high school, drama opportunities for all, and a great music program for both vocal and instrumental. I don't think very many Christian schools exist that have such a great balance and offer such awesome opportunities for all ages. I had some really awesome teachers that impacted my life in a great way and I have already seen the impact certain teachers at TCA have had on my own kids. I look forward to many more years at TCA as a parent and would highly recommend this school.

I went to TCA from Kindergarten till I graduated. I would highly recommend this school to anyone looking for quality Christian education. The teachers and staff at TCA are very caring and want their students to succeed. The education is great and has prepared me to do well in college. Many extracurricular activities are offered as well. Sports like volleyball, soccer, basketball, cheerleading, baseball, and golf provide students plenty of physical activity. Other activities include choir, band, strings, drama, and debate. Many students compete at state competitions, with many winning and going to the national competition. I would highly recommend this school.
