Celebrating the New PreK Center!

Because of your gifts to the Pursuing Excellence Campaign, TCA welcomed the Class of 2034 to the new PreK Center August 19, 2020! Your generosity created an environment where our youngest learners receive the best possible start in education and freed much-needed classroom space to add sections to 1st, 3rd and 4th grades in the Lower School.

The new PreK Center includes five spacious classrooms with adjoining restrooms, a large Common Room for activities, storage, and a workroom and breakroom for teachers. The dedicated PreK facility provides a safe and happy space to learn, explore, play and grow!
