Our primary role is to provide a solid education that will form a foundation of knowledge for lifelong learning.
Our philosophy of education centers around four main components:
A Biblical Foundation and Worldview
The Bible serves as the basis for our educational endeavor, offers a solid foundation for our learning, and provides guidance for the spiritual development of our students.
The inspired Word of God also gives a definitive reason as to why a Christian school is important. God reveals His existence and power through creation. In his Word, God further reveals all that we need to know for our salvation and righteous living. Throughout the educational process, we seek to integrate the two forms of revelation—the Word of God and his creation—and weave them into a meaningful and life-changing whole. All subject matter, then, should be taught and viewed through the spectacles of scripture.
Our school seal depicts the importance of standing on God's word for the foundation of our learning and living.
“Your Word is a lamp to my feet and a light unto my path.” Psalm 119:105
High Quality Academics
High quality academics drive student learning, and we want students to benefit from the best methods and tools available. Our experienced and dedicated teachers work each day to design learning experiences that best meet the needs of students.
TCCS offers an academically strong core curriculum along with a variety of co-curricular and extracurricular opportunities including music, art, clubs, and sports to help students explore and develop the full spectrum of their unique, God-given gifts and talents. We develop leadership opportunities in the classroom, through group work, and in various activities throughout the year. We provide a variety of opportunities for hands-on learning through field trips and enrichment days.
The Lamp of Knowledge in our school seal depicts this second component. The lamp is a symbol of higher education. We are called to excellence in learning because that is what God expects of us. When we equip our students with a knowledge and understanding of God's created world, they will be able to shine God's light to others and serve in their homes, in their communities, and in the world.
“For the Lord gives wisdom; from His mouth come knowledge and understanding.” Proverbs 2:6
A Whole-Child Focus
We view children as “whole persons” and seek to support, encourage, and nudge them academically, physically, socially, emotionally, and spiritually. A whole child education prioritizes the full scope of a child’s developmental needs to ensure that every child reaches their fullest potential. A whole child approach understands that students' education and life outcomes are dependent upon their access to safe and welcoming learning environments and rich learning experiences in and out of school.
Our qualified and supportive teachers provide this nurturing environment. The academic curriculum, in combination with the many co-curricular and extra-curricular offerings at TCCS, exists to provide those rich and varied learning experiences.
An Educational Partnership
The home, church, and school must support and encourage one another as partners in Christian education. While the school focuses on education, we also complement and share in the responsibility of Christian parents to cultivate and develop a love for and knowledge of God and his world in each of our students.

“Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not depart from it.” Proverbs 22:6
