Frequently Asked Questions About
Trinity Christian Academy
What is the A.C.E. program and how does it work?
The academic foundation of Trinity Christian Academy is the Accelerated Christian Education (ACE)
program. This program is predominately student centered and is designed for each pupil to progress
individually. Teachers and facilitators are present to oversee and ensure academic success.
Is the school accredited?
Trinity Christian Academy is a Rhode Island State approved school and annually submits to its guidelines
and requirements both academically and otherwise.
What is the enrollment procedure?
The enrollment procedure begins with the completion
of a pre-application package. This pack includes an
Application and a Pastoral Recommendation form,
which must be filled out and returned to the school.
Upon receiving both forms, the Academic Committee then reviews each potential student. After a
decision has been reached, applicants are notified by either telephone or mail in regards to their
application status. All accepted student’s parents/guardians then receive an Acceptance Package, which
will guide them through the rest of the enrollment procedure.
What happens if my child is transferring from another school?
Each student transferring from another school must complete a diagnostic test to determine their
placement in the A.C.E. program. Also, T.C.A. will provide the new student with a release form in order to
acquire records held by a previous school. This step is especially important in upper grades in regards
to the transferring of high school credits.
