Head of School Welcome
Welcome to Trinity Christian Academy! Trinity is a college-preparatory Christian school founded in 1993. TCA is an independently operating school with a school board and administration that provides Christ-centered leadership for our school families. We serve a student body of approximately 590 students in grades PK3-12 with over 100 staff members.
First and foremost, TCA is a Christian school. We are proud of our 30 years of excellent academics, athletics and creative arts. We understand that the key to an eternal impact is not in test scores, championships, or packed auditoriums. The true measure of success is the degree to which the lives of our people reflect God’s truth and goodness in all that they do, to a world in desperate need of the good news of Jesus.
We do this by keeping the 3 cornerstone values in mind throughout all aspects of school life—Relationships, Excellence, and Service.
As servants of a loving, giving God, we see strong Relationships as a great priority. Our staff works alongside students, parents, and local churches to help our students fulfill God’s purposes for their lives and help them to reach their maximum potential. Structures are in place for students of all ages to mentor and learn from one another, and small class sizes allow the attention students need and deserve.
Trinity students work hard and seek Excellence in the classroom, on the playing field and more importantly, in life. TCA students study hard, train hard and give their best in the classroom, on the field and on the stage. Yet while we understand the value of effort and its potential rewards (Prov. 14:23), we also know it is possible to gain the world and end up with nothing of real value (Matt. 16:26). We strive every day to reflect our desire for excellence in all things while never losing sight of greater, eternal goals.
Service is a key part of the TCA experience for students of all ages. From elementary students serving at the nursing home down the street to older students taking trips across cultures on overseas mission trips, our students and staff give of themselves. We recognize that there is no greater way to show our heavenly Father how much we love Him than to love and serve people.
I hope this website is a useful tool for you as you seek to learn more about TCA. Even better yet, I hope you come visit us in person! The most common description of Trinity Christian Academy used by students, teachers, and parents is "family," and family has to be seen and felt to be understood. If you have an interest in learning more about the TCA family, please come and have a cup of coffee, take a tour and be our guests. Our family continues to grow and we would love to have you become a part of our family.
