Tennessee Christian Preparatory School (TCPS), formerly Tennessee Christian Academy (TCA) is a private Christian college preparatory school located in Cleveland, Tennessee.[2] It is the only state-accredited private college preparatory school in the immediate area.

History[edit]

TCPS was founded in 1997 by a group of parents committed to Christian education. When initially founded, the school was named Tennessee Christian Academy. In 2008, school administrators increased academic rigor, tightened admissions policies and began to focus on providing college-preparatory education for all students. It was at this time that the school took on its current name, Tennessee Christian Preparatory School.

Campus[edit]

Currently, TCPS leases its campus on the former site of Tomlinson College of the Church of God of Prophecy. As the Church of God of Prophecy has announced plans to revive their college on the campus,[3] TCPS has acquired property for a new campus.

Extracurricular Activities[edit]

Athletics[edit]

Tennessee Christian Preparatory School offers two sports that compete at the Varsity level, Baseball and Basketball.
