This school is really good at preparing students for college, and although the school is not perfect, I highly recommend students going to this school. The teachers are friendly and kind, and are willing to work with students when the students need help. All the students have to do is ask. The school is really good, and the teachers are AWESOME!

Wonderful school. Both challenging and fun, TCA has given me the best opportunities to grow as a person and in my academic efforts. It has some of the best teachers that I could ever hope for. I highly recommend this school for those who want their children to grow up in an environment focused on character development, and academics. I would not be the person I am today with out going to TCA. The lessons that I learned here have helped me not only in school but have prepared me for life.

Also if you are thinking about leaving TCA because you've heard that the academics are hard please don't. Yes the academics are significantly harder than many schools but you can never beat the teachers at TCA. They all genuinely care about you and most all of them go the extra mile every day to help their students succeed. The teachers senior year I might add, are exceptionally amazing and the "cap stones" make it all worth it in the end.
Since kindergarten, I have been attending The Classical Academy (TCA), a public charter school where my intellect, virtue, and excitement for education have been purposefully cultivated. TCA’s mission is “to develop exemplary citizens equipped with analytical thinking skills, virtuous character, and a passion for learning, all built upon a solid foundation of knowledge.” I have learned how to logically apply previous ideas and methods to new situations in order to find creative solutions. All of the classes at TCA often focus on rhetoric-level learning and application using methods such as Socratic seminars, panels or presentations, and self-guided projects to guide curriculum. Without a doubt, my time at TCA has prepared me to participate in a program of self-motivated study and advanced, creative academic exploration. I feel incredibly prepared academically.

As far as changes, I would love to see more focus on student freedom and student-led progress.
