Purpose and Philosophy

Educational Purpose

Our desire is for Jesus to be in the center of every part of this school and for the Holy Spirit to be free to move. The primary purpose is to glorify God within the school setting by:
Providing opportunities for the student’s faith to be encouraged and strengthened by example, study, and prayer.
Training children in obedience and discipline.
Providing a curriculum with high standards, challenging each child to do his/her very best, “as for the Lord” (Colossians 3:23a).

Buildings, desks, books, rules, and regulations do not make a school. People gathered for the purpose of education make a school. People gathered in the name of Jesus make a Christian school. People gathered as servants of Jesus, under the liberty of the Gospel, following the guidance of the Holy Spirit find not only the finest education in a unique setting, but they become changed into the likeness of Christ. 2 Corinthians 3:18 expresses this so well: “But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as from the Lord, the Spirit.” We hope that this also excites you to want to be part of TCA — watching, yielding, and cooperating as the Holy Spirit works His life-changing miracle in you.

Educational Philosophy

What does it mean to “share the mission/vision of the school”? Our teaching ministry fits into The Church International’s overarching mission and vision – ‘Shaping Hearts and Sharpening Minds in becoming conformed to the image of Jesus Christ’. TCA’s teachers and staff will:

Guide students in the path of wisdom as well as of knowledge
Implement a curriculum that is shaped and governed by God's Word
Assist parents in educating their children
