TACA is a private, Christ-centered K-12 college preparatory school.  We are centrally located in Bristol, Tennessee, with convenient access from other communities in the Tri-Cities area. 

TACA is committed to achieving excellence in Academics and Spiritual Growth.   Students in Kindergarten – 12th grade receive Biblical instruction each day and attend Chapel every Wednesday. 



Students are taught using the Christian based Bob Jones curriculum, with the exception of Handwriting in K5-3rd Grades, Math in the middle and high school, and Chemistry in high school. The middle and high schools use Houghton Mifflin math curriculum.  Our academic curriculum is supplemented with Bible classes, enrichment courses, and extracurricular activities.

Our school  has embraced new and innovative technology for each grade.  Students third grade and up have access to a computer


lab, where they learn computer keyboarding on an age appropriate level.

Dual Enrollment

Tennessee Avenue Christian Academy participates in dual enrollment classes with King University, Bryan College and Northeast State Community College, where our students can receive both high school and college credit for qualifying coursework.  Also, students who are Tennessee residents can qualify for dual enrollment grant funds, which help pay the cost of the college classes.

We also participate in Tennessee Promise, with an on-site mentor. We offer ACT prep classes for our juniors and seniors.

We are proud to say that our graduates move on to the colleges of their choice and become successful members of the workforce.


Tennessee Avenue Christian Academy is a member of the Tennessee Association of Christian Schools (TACS). TACS is a Christian school organization that serves member schools in Tennessee and Kentucky. Membership is based on acceptance of the Association’s statement of faith and the establishment  of educational practice common to schools of excellence.





Tennessee Avenue Christian Academy offers a variety of sports for our students, beginning in  grade 5.  Our teams compete with teams from the Tri-Cities area and surrounding regions. 

Our sports include Lady Crusader volleyball, basketball, and cross country, Crusader basketball, and Crusader cross country. We also share a partnership with Bristol Soccer Association.
