    At Tampa Bay Christian Academy, students are well-cared for academically, socially, emotionally, and spiritually. Teachers are caring, helpful, and professional. We appreciate the diversity in the student population. The relative small size of the school makes it feel like a family. Many positive changes have been occurring over this last year. Our family recommends this school for anyone looking for a fun, caring, educationally-excellent, and affordable Christian school in which to place your child/children.

    Overall it's ok. The new location has decreased the satisfaction people have here. There's almost no diversity and classes are very slow and behind those at public schools. Most teachers are nice but many seem like they are not technically qualified to do what they do. Things have improved a lot since we got new administration, though. Baby steps
    I am overwhelmed by the love and care my children have received at TBCA. They have excelled academically and spiritually. In the midst of all the craziness that is going around with Covid-19, I am glad my kids will be at Tampa Bay Christian.
