I just love this school! My kids are in high school and have been there since pre-school. They are getting a top quality college prep education and growing in their spirituality daily. We have been so blessed by the teachers and families at this school. Now they are building a new facility and sports field. God is working miracles there and I am so happy to be part of it!

Best investment, EVER! TriCity Christian School is an incredible asset to the academic environment in North County. Along with solid Christian values, they provide quality academics (85%+ pass rate for AP classes), superb staff and highly competitive athletics. Offering smaller class sizes, educational and missionary trips which span the globe, and a safe family environment, TCCS is an exceptional value. All of my children attended TCCS K-12 and were well prepared for the 4 year universities they attended. It was the best investment we have ever made, for their education and their future. It is exciting to see the new building and field being completed. It will add strength to an already powerful program.

What a gem of a school we found. We have been so impressed by the commitment to our kids by their teachers and the whole staff at TCCS. When the public schools are struggling with classroom size, forced teaching of social topics, and declining programs, the school rises above and God is present. It has been great to see kids be given the freedom to express themselves and grow in their faith. Sports, music programs, and many other activities are great. The kids also have current technology in their classrooms starting in kindergarten and 1st grade. Each year it is so impressive with the schools that the seniors have to choose from and the levels and types of scholarships they earned through their hard work and preparation. My kids have been challenged in their course work but the teachers go above and beyond to commit extra time as needed.
