Middle School at The Christian Academy
Middle school is an exciting time for students as they become more independent, have a wider variety of learning opportunities, and develop friendships that often last a lifetime. At The Christian Academy, we partner with parents during this season to foster positive growth — academically, socially, and spiritually.
Middle schoolers have big questions. We help them find answers.
The primary goal of our program is to help each student strengthen their identity in Christ while preparing for high school and beyond. Pre-teens have a natural desire to learn, explore, and debate. Teaching logic is thus critical at this stage, as it provides the tools needed to question with precision and arrive at valid conclusions. Every subject is taught from a biblical perspective, which allows students to make real-world connections and discover how God’s word is relevant in their lives.
AT TCA, YOUR CHILD WILL:
• Feel known, loved, and mentored by Christian teachers, coaches, and staff
• Develop a growth mindset — the belief that their success is in their own hands and skills can be cultivated through perseverance
• Have numerous opportunities to strengthen their God-given talents in the arts, competitive athletics, leadership, and ministry
• Grow deeper in their faith through small groups, retreats, chapel, and regular prayer/Bible study
AS A MIDDLE SCHOOL PARENT, YOU CAN EXPECT:
Our small class sizes allow our teachers to truly know each student’s learning style, and be available to communicate with parents.
VIBRANT SCHOOL COMMUNITY
A vibrant school community, where families are encouraged to be involved in their child’s learning experience.
Alignment between your child’s home and school life — Christian character is modeled and taught daily.
A seamless transition to high school for your child, who will have mastered foundational skills through our unique approach to education.
Why Do Parents Love TCA?
“The TCA middle school program was beneficial to my daughter because of the small class sizes and learning how to have fun and challenge herself at the same time. The relationships my daughter has made at TCA will most likely last her a lifetime. My daughter has also grown both as a person and a Christian through TCA.“
“This program has allowed my son the opportunity to develop ownership of his learning. Developing personal responsibility is encouraged. Acquiring skills that will ensure success in high school and beyond in a stimulating environment is invaluable. The teachers are always there for an encouraging word, insight, or simply to listen to a challenge [students] face. Our children want to get up and go to school each day!”
Why Choose TCA for Middle School?
A Safe Environment
We take numerous measures to ensure each student’s physical and emotional safety. Our campus is highly secure, and our team includes a full-time campus pastor, a student counselor, and many staff trained in social/emotional development.
Our classical curriculum paves the way for academic excellence as students are not taught what to think, but how to think. When they leave our campus, they are equipped to thrive in college and life.
The environment at TCA allows students to grow spiritually through relationships with Godly role models and mentors, positive friendships, Bible study, and service opportunities. Middle school students can join our praise team, get involved in student ministries, and take a service leadership elective.
