Building a foundation for students to thrive and succeed

Elementary school provides a joy-filled environment that sets the foundation for the TCA experience, purposefully created to harness and nurture each child’s unique design. Our passionate teachers are dedicated to making sure that each child receives the care and attention that he or she needs to thrive.

The rich curriculum and engaging, spacious classrooms help foster a robust learning experience for every child. Year after year, that small child who enters Elementary as an eager Kindergarten student is loved, challenged and equipped to move on to Middle School, the threshold of adolescence, as a confident and prepared learner.

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.
