Classical Academy High School Reviews

TCA’s Titan Creed focuses on the advancement of character and discipline within the students. This sets my high school apart, for they focus on the morality of the students and character development, while emphasizing the importance of strong discipline, perseverance, honesty, and hard work. TCA convinces students that academic careers are the only way to success; they don’t branch out on other career options. The admin praises students who excel in areas of academics, and prioritizes the needs of students that wish to pursue academic careers such as college or an extension of education, but do not prioritize students who have goals in other directions. My experience at TCA was average because I respect their goals of improving character and working hard to reach success, but because of their strict rules and lack of a wide variety of curriculum, TCA has held me back and kept me from reaching my full potential to explore other career options within life.

I currently attend TCA and graduate in 2022. I would give TCA a "B". This year started well, assignments were assigned, and due at reasonable times. After the first month, in every class I struggled with different problems. In Chemistry the tests started easy but there was a large jump of difficulty from chapters 3-4. In English many big assignments largely affected my overall class grade and not enough small assignments to help me recover. History was taught by giving fact after fact, but the test questions required in-depth thinking and processing that I could not figure out on my own and needed more explaining. Being the first generation from my family to attend school in America, I take grades and education seriously. I tried my best this year and had less than stellar grades. I would like to think my grades are not a reflection of all my hard work but hopefully constructive feedback so that TCA realizes that students like me do try, and do work hard but need more help.
The Classical Academy creates a tight knit community and emphasizes the importance of the individual. They allow each student the support and resources to be successful. Although it is a roughly small school, the environment is very positive. The staff are teachers are very supportive and encouraging. Although they challenge students academically, they are also very helpful and approachable. The ability to shine and be successful is embodied within The Classical Academy. Within the small classrooms, each student is given the opportunity to be heard and voice their opinions. The academics are challenging and push students, but rewarding and helpful in the long run. They provide many ways for students to get involved and have a place within the school. The Classical Academy is an overall great school.
