TCA is a fabulous fit for my child! The teachers are committed to and enthusiastic about their work and it shows in the way they interact with the students. My daughter is excited to go to school each day, is challenged academically, and is growing spiritually. There is a great balance of the Christ-centered, spiritual aspect working in tandem with the college prep, education piece. I was confident when I choose TCA for my daughter`s education, and it has been even better than I could have imagined!

We have been part of the TCA community since 2006. We love the school, the teachers, the families and the mission of the school to "Educate the whole child to the glory of God."I love that the school reinforces what we try to teach our kids about the Lord at home

TCA is an amazing school with an incredibly strong faculty and staff. They care about our children's heart and their love for the Lord - as well as provide a rigorous academic setting. It is the perfect balance for our family.

We have an 8th grader and 4th grader, both who have been at TCA since kindergarten. We love this school and are so grateful God brought us here. The academics are challenging, but they do lots of things to inject fun. I really appreciate how intentional the administration is in preparing the kids (and parents) for their next big steps, whether it's middle school, upper school or college. I also appreciate their balanced approach to coming alongside us to help raise our kids to live with Christian values, reflecting Christ. And at the root of our love of this school is the people. They aren't perfect. None of us are. But from the administration to the teachers to the coaches to the staff, these are people who love working at this school and are dedicated to serving Christ through their role at TCA. Our kids LOVE going to school because they know they are surrounded by people who love God and love them.

We have been fortunate to be able to send all 3 of our children to TCA since Kindergarten. We are now in the middle and upper school and it has lived up to our expectations. The academics are among the best, the teachers and administration really do care, there is a real commitment to Christian values and teaching, the fine arts are second to none and the sports are very competitive; yet the size of the student body allows for participation by most middle and upper school students. It is the best value in Dallas and a great fit for a family with multiple children that have multiple interests.

I went to TCA for 12 years and graduated in 1986. I loved my time there and I have wonderful lifetime friends and memories. All three of my children either have or will also graduate from TCA. I have been a part of the TCA community for a very long time. I have watched it grow and develop over the years. I am so thankful that as TCA continues to improve and reach the next level as a school, it has never lost the founding purpose of "educating and developing the whole person to the glory of God". My children have grown up in an environment of academic excellence where they have also been able to participate in multiple extracurricular activities (such as sports, fine arts, and leadership) all while Christ has been woven into each facet of their experience. I am truly THANKFUL for TCA!
