Home School Program
Thank you for your interest in the Home School Division of Tri-State Christian Academy. We believe that teaming together with you and your child will provide opportunities that may be unavailable otherwise. I am sure you realize that your child's education includes more than just academic instruction. Your child also needs the opportunity to develop socially, spiritually and athletically as well. Tri-State Christian Academy gives your child the opportunity to experience numerous venues of student activities for fun and development. TSCA believes it is important to provide varying opportunities for the student that best exercises his or her unique, God-given talents, abilities, and interests.
While your child may not experience every activity that the resident students of TSCA experience, your child will experience many of the opportunities afforded to our entire student body. Examples include: Little Crusader sports (grades 1-5), Elementary and Middle School Electives (including Art, Music, Spanish, Drama, etc.), Field Trips, Homecoming activities, ACSI Academic and Fine Arts Competition, 8th Grade Overnight Trip to New York, Kindergarten, Middle School and High School Graduation, and many other activities.
TSCA will provide a Home School coordinator to work with you in developing your child's curriculum choice, act as a liaison between the home and the school, and aid in developing and checking your child's academic portfolio.
If we can assist you in this all important endeavor of educating your child please feel free to contact our school office for further information. We welcome you to become part of the TSCA "family" and serve together in the education of the children with which God has blessed you.
Tri-State Christian Academy offers an onsite specialized instruction program for students who are unable to perform successfully with regard to regular classrooms academics. Small group instruction in specific skill subjects such as reading, language arts and math is intended to meet your child where he/she is currently in the areas of need and to make academic progress at a rate that is both challenging and yet comfortable for your child. An alternate curriculum may need to be designed for meeting the needs of your child. A parent meeting with the ACTS Program director is necessary before services can begin.
