Pursuing Excellence, Transforming TCA

The Pursuing Excellence Campaign is bold and ambitious, exciting and significant. Just like the pioneering families who built our school, we must lead with faith and prepare our campus for future generations. If you believe as we do that investing in the young lives we nurture, educate and inspire will make a lasting impact on our world, then join us. What we do and what we stand for at TCA has never been more important.

What Makes TCA Distinctive?

Vision

Compelled by their faith, Trinity Christian Academy’s founding families made an investment that continues to impact the lives of young people today. Like our founding families, we have an opportunity to invest in the lives of our current students, as well as thousands who will follow over the next 50 years.

The TCA Board of Trustees, Foundation Board and leadership have set a bold vision for the future of our school, the Pursuing Excellence Campaign. More than a building campaign, this new master plan outlines a multi-phase project that will transform our 40-acre campus. It sets in motion TCA's course for the future: academically, spiritually, and through athletics and the arts. The campus redesign will advance our mission by supporting 21st century learning and is designed to enhance community and relationships – hallmarks of a TCA education.

How will TCA students be affected during construction?

TCA has developed plans to ensure classes will not be interrupted or displaced during school hours.

How will traffic flow and parking be accommodated for the new campus changes?

A new traffic flow will allow for more efficient Middle School drop-off/pick-up.

How will security be affected by the new campus changes?

We are planning for additional fencing on the Sojourn side to be included in the project.

Why are 5th and 6th grades not a part of the new facility?

Due to rising construction costs, an overall decrease to square footage of the first project was required. As additional funding is secured, 5th and 6th grade classrooms will be added to the new Middle School facility.

The Pursuing Excellence Campaign is a multi-phase project that will transform TCA’s 40-acre campus over several years. Future phases might include a stadium expansion, common dining hall, athletic center, visual arts center, administration building and other campus components.

#transformTCA

I am here because of the teachers and coaches at TCA that invested in me, came alongside me and never gave up on me. Today, I see part of me in just about every student I meet in middle school. The young lives we nurture, educate and inspire will make a lasting — even eternal — mark on our world. And now you have a unique opportunity to partner with us to mold the future for Trinity Christian Academy — and the generations yet to come. The Pursuing Excellence Campaign is crucial and important to transform our campus, and to transform our students for the Glory of God.
