School Notes

Our Story

Tyler Street Christian Academy was founded in 1972, as a ministry of Tyler Street United Methodist Church.

Dr. Paul Morrell, then pastor of Tyler Street United Methodist Church, saw that families within the church and the community lacked the choice for a local, private school centered on Christian principles and values. Dr. Morell and his wife Ann envisioned an academy that would promote a spirit of excellence, and would work alongside families in building up the whole person of each child: intellectually, emotionally, spiritually, and physically. They envisioned a place that would become a model academy for other Christian organizations, and help students to see all things as God sees them with justice, love and mercy.

During the early years of the school`s establishment, classes were held at Tyler Street United Methodist Church.  Fundraising in 1970`s resulted in the construction of a high school wing and gymnasium across the street from the church. In 1998, the Board of Directors saw the need to construct a building which would centralize the entire student body. With the support of the community and many Dallas philanthropic foundations, a new building was completed in 2001.

Because the founders of TSCA brought the school into being based on principles set down by the Word, TSCA is dedicated to a strict program of exceptional educational opportunity and the preservation of Christian ideals. TSCA faculty are unique among others because their thoughtful, spiritual insights are as much a part of the daily curriculum as the subjects they instruct.

Tyler Street Christian Academy educates by inspiring students to love learning, strengthening students with Christ-like character and Biblical foundations for living, and encouraging students to pursue their dreams and callings.

As a result, it is our objective to produce graduates who are intellectually, emotionally, and spiritually mature. We place a high value on servant-leadership, and strive to instill in our students a sense of responsibility for their community.

Today, as a mature and established school, we continue to serve our community as the only private, Christian preschool-12th grade school in the southern sector of Dallas.

  • To be accepted a student must submit an application online, take an assessment entrance test, provide previous report cards and test scores, a certified copy of the child's birth certificate, and up to date shot records. Secondary students must submit a disciplinary record from the previous school and a recommendation from the previous year's Math and English teacher. The student and parent then meet with the appropriate principal to discuss evaluation results and determine admittance.

Great school! Class of 1986. I received a solid education that prepared me for college and beyond. After 40+ years, TSCA is an Oak Cliff institution!
