Admission Policies 2020-2021
At Tri-State Christian Academy, your child’s needs for Christian schooling and academic education will be met with guidance and excellence. Tuition costs are understandably a factor in choosing the best school for your child. Tri-State Christian Academy is surprisingly affordable with achievable tuition available to nearly every family through partial scholarships and financial aid. More than 95% of our families receive some type of financial assistance.
Early enrollment is strongly advised as our class sizes are limited. Completed Enrollment Applications and Student Spiritual Evaluations will be reviewed by our Admissions Office to determine acceptance for enrollment.
If your child is accepted to Tri-State Christian Academy you may pay the tuition in full or schedule a meeting with our Finance Department to determine any financial aid or partial scholarships available to you and if necessary set up monthly payment arrangements. A copy of your prior year’s income tax return is required in order to receive financial aid.

A TCA Administrative interview is required of all new applicants. A copy of the student’s report card/attendance and/or transcript is required. New applicants are also required to sign a Transcript Request Form to release the student’s records from their previous school.
