Admissions Process

In the interest of the wellbeing of our students, families, faculty, staff, alumni, and the  greater TCA community, The Christian Academy is currently operating on an online instruction model.  Students have moved to our online instruction classrooms and classes are not being held on the TCA campus.

The TCA Admissions Office remains open at this time and we are accepting applications for the 2020-2021 school year.  We are also available to digitally connect with prospective families. You can schedule a phone meeting with our admissions staff HERE or contact our Admissions Associate Jean Ryle at (484)-441-3624.

While the TCA campus is temporarily closed, our admissions staff are still available to meet by phone and online.

SCHEDULE A PHONE MEETING WITH A TCA ADMISSIONS STAFF MEMBER

We are here to help! Families who need a one-on-one meeting with our admissions staff to talk about unique circumstances or next-step conversations should consider scheduling a phone meeting individually with our admissions staff.  You can view and reserve an available time slot HERE.

VIRTUAL VISIT WITH AN ADMISSIONS STAFF MEMBER

A virtual visit is an excellent way for prospective students and parents to learn more about TCA, explore our financial aid offerings, and get your questions answered! In this face-to-face, Zoom-facilitated meeting, you get to talk with a TCA admissions counselor who will give you a virtual campus tour (coming soon!), tell you about the division(s) and programs(s) you’re interested in, and help you find out how TCA is a great fit for your family!

As an admissions team, we are here to answer your questions and help you get to know our school community. We can assist you with information on our admission process, our curriculum, co-curricular opportunities for students, financial assistance, and much more.

Campus Visit

Your family’s personal, custom-tailored experience with TCA—complete with a student ambassador-led tour, classroom visit, and meeting with our Director of Admissions. Schedule a Campus Visit through our Admissions Portal here.

Shadow Day

Students entering 3rd – 12th grade have the opportunity to experience a full or half-day visit in their respective grades. Students are paired with a current TCA student and get to experience a “day in the life” as they have the chance to become familiar with who we are, what we do, and what we have to offer. Schedule a Shadow Day for your student through our Admissions Portal here.
