Temple Christian Academy & Preschool4

My 4 year old has attended TCAP for two years and is about to go back for a third. She loves the teachers and the opportunities that Temple gives it's students. Back to school is easy knowing that my child's academic and spiritual needs are being met!
My 7 year old son went to This school for K3, K4, and kinder. By the time it was Christmas when he was in kinder, he knew how to read. Once he went to 1st grade his reading level was always above from what it was expected. The teacher also put great emphasis on their writing. My son's teacher in 1st grade even told me that she never had a student with a handwriting like his. Althought the small ratio helps with the academics, I have to say that my son had a really hard time making friends because most of the kids were girls and it seemed like that year they only wanted to be friends with girls. My 4 year old son goes to this school too and I have seen his growth. We are bilingual and when they attended the school for the first time, they did not know any English and the school has always been wonderful about it.
My son (4) and daughter (6) have been attending TCAP for 2 years now. I have seen them grow leaps and bounds in their abilities. My kids LOVE their teachers and have learned so much from them. The teacher to student ratio seems to be perfect... both of my kids have great interactions with peers and also have good one-on-one time with their teachers & teacher's assistants. I highly recommend. The only prohibitor for some might be cost. It is obviously more expensive than public schools... but it is worth the expense to me to have my kids in such a loving, fun environment.
My daughter has attended Temple Christian Academy for 3 years now...and I have loved every second of her time there. The staff is wonderful with the children, the director is phenomenal, and the scholastic and religious education she gets, mixed in with the fun of being in preschool is priceless. The hours are a bit longer than most preschools in the area, but I truly feel it has given her the ability to learn so much more than if she were in a 2 hour program. She will be going in to Kindergarten already knowing how to spell, write all her letters and numbers and also beginning to read a little bit. I am thrilled with the progress she has made and owe it to the wonderful staff at such a loving school.
The kindergarten has been a huge disappointment. The teacher and director are completely closed off to communication. Most goals and promises made at the informational sessions and at the beginning of the year have been broken.
