Statement of Faith
Statement of Faith
This Statement of Faith adopted by Trinity Classical Academy is limited to primary Christian doctrine. Primary Christian doctrine is that which is central to all Christian denominations and sets Christianity apart from other faiths. We teach primary Christian doctrine only, directing students to Scripture, their parents, and history for guidance in forming secondary beliefs.
We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. By His own pleasure, God created, sustains, and rules all things. All creation exists for and attests to His glory.
We believe that God has revealed himself and his truth in both nature and in Scripture, which mutually interpret one another. We believe the Bible alone to be the word of God, the ultimate and infallible authority for faith and practice.
We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.
We believe that all human beings are sinners by nature and by choice, and that for the salvation of lost and sinful humans, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely necessary.
We believe that salvation is by grace through faith alone in Christ alone, and that faith without works is dead.
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.
We believe in the spiritual unity of all believers in our Lord Jesus Christ, and in the primacy of the local church as the place where believers should live out this unity.
We believe that God created us male and female in His image; that gender identity may not be detached from the biological sex of the human body; that marriage or matrimony is a covenantal, procreative union of one man and one woman; and that God intends for children to be raised and nurtured in an environment that honors these distinctions. We believe that sexual union is to be exclusive to covenantal, heterosexual marriage.
We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost: they that are saved to the resurrection of life, and they that are lost to the resurrection of damnation.

Our Board is committed to keeping costs low, making this school accessible for as many families as possible.
We have secured commitments from donors to help provide financial aid to those who need it. Financial aid is available only after application to TCA. All families desiring financial assistance fill out a third-party financial aid application, and financial aid funds are dispersed as available in accordance with need.
First, attend an INFO MEETING. Attendance at a TCA informational meeting is required before progressing further.
Second, place your child on the waiting list. This requires a $100 non-refundable fee, which will be applied toward your application fee if you move forward as an applicant. Only families who have attended an informational meeting may claim a spot on the waiting list.
Third, submit your application. Application for new students opens each January. Our application process is online and cloud-based. A $200 application fee must be submitted at the time of application. Please note that application fees are non-refundable, regardless of whether students are admitted or declined.
The Board and Head of School will review applications, conduct a family Q&A with each family, and make final admissions decisions.
Tuition for each academic year is due in advance. If your child is accepted, you will pay tuition fees in two installments: the first half is due by May 15th (for the upcoming academic year) and the remainder is due by November 30th.
Trinity Classical Academy admits students of any race, color, and national or ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at our school and does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, and national or ethnic origin in administration of our educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs.
Head of School
Head of School
...is TCA's inaugural Head of School. Sara is a native of Omaha and a graduate of Westside High School and Vanderbilt University. She was raised in a family of educators and spent 8 years teaching English at Elkhorn High School. Due to her excellence and experience, she served as a team leader and a mentor to new teachers for much of that time. But in 2014, she began to dream of launching a classical Christian school. So as God brought together the vision for TCA, she was quick to champion the idea.
Sara's combination of educational experience, Christian conviction, and passion for classical learning make her a natural leader for a school like TCA. In her own words:
I’ve always loved education: loved to learn about educational philosophy, read about educational models, engage in the life of a school, think about how to teach and learn effectively. But by God’s grace, I’m learning that my true source of fulfillment is Christ. I am excited at the idea of a school that will help children come to the same conclusion, and I believe that begins with the big picture that all knowledge is oriented in the fear of God and His word. I desire for TCA to be a place where this educational vision is a reality for kids and their families, and I long to see young people understanding the power and authority of Scripture, knowing its influence in the world and in their lives. Ultimately I'm excited at the prospect of seeing children become disciples who grow to be creators of Christian culture and image the beauty of the Gospel.

Joyfully affirm the Trinity Classical Academy Statement of Faith
