Why is TCA a special place for you? For over 15 years, my family has been involved at TCA. My daughter attended this wonderful school. My husband works here. The faculty, staff, students, and families are committed to more than just an excellent education; they are committed to one another. Each and every day, I see God's love in action. I have never been to another school like TCA. I just love it!
