Umbrella Registration

Trinity Christian Academy
Requirements and Registration

Note: This information is for registration in the TCA Umbrella Program, not the Homeschool Co-op.

What are the Requirements

Trinity Christian Academy will accept students who will be taught by their parents at home. The school will designate the home as a satellite of the main campus. All prospective families must sign a Statement of Faith. Registration is required each new school year. Parents will need to maintain and submit a curriculum list for each student for the upcoming year and Attendance Record and Grade Average Report each year.

Students must attend school a minimum of 180 days per year, no less than four hours a day.

Achievement tests are administered every year in grades 2-12. Juniors and Seniors may opt out of testing if they plan to take the ACT or SAT.

Any prospective student who has been expelled from any public or private school must be approved on a case-by-case basis after an interview with the principal of TCA.

The academic school year starts August 1 and ends July 31 of the following year.
