What makes our curriculum different?

Trinity Christian Academy offers a Biblically-directed and integrated education, which assists in forming a Christian worldview.

TCA aligns itself with state and national education standards, but uses continual curriculum evaluation based on student and teacher needs.

Our elementary school lays the foundation for upper school. Elementary students discover and learn through hands on, minds-on experiences in the TCA STEM Lab. Students learn as they problem solve, collaborate and create.

Spanish begins as an auxillary class for our Little Lions students, laying a strong groundwork for language fluency in higher levels. During Library auxillary, students are given the opportunity to check out one book a week beginning in Kindergarten. Students are taught how to care for books while also cultivating a love for reading with a major emphasis on digital citizenship and research skills that prepare them for the years ahead.

Beginning 2018-2019, Trinity Christian Academy will be administering the ACT’s Aspire test to students in grades 3-5. Our Upper School students in grades 6-10 have been using this assessment since the 2016-2017 school year. This assessment is a valuable college preparatory tool that promotes higher-order thinking and processing. ACT Aspire maps learner progress from grades three through high school on a vertical scale, anchored to the scoring system of the ACT.

  • Aspire is a computer-based for grades 6-10 and pencil/paper test for grades 3-5. It is a longitudinal college and career readiness assessment that tracks student growth and is built upon the same rigorous foundation as the ACT test.
  • In addition to measuring achievement, Aspire serves as an indicator of college readiness and is excellent preparation for the ACT.
  • Like the ACT, Aspire tests in the academic areas of Mathematics, Science, Reading, and English.

 

 

 

Students in Kindergarten through 2nd grade will continue to be assessed through the Terra Nova 3 test. Terra Nova 3 is a respected and widely used achievement test that measures mastery in the core subject areas.

TerraNova, Third Edition, for reading, language, math, science, and social studies, features a carefully researched test blueprint that reflects today’s challenging standards for content and performance. This standardized test is used to evaluate the overall effectiveness of our program and individual student achievement.
