While Trinity Christian Academy does not give scholarships of any kind (athletic or academic), we do accept them. We accept the Florida Tax Credit (Step Up For Students), Family Empowerment, and Mckay scholarships. The Florida Tax Credit and Family Empowerment scholarships are both income-based scholarships and the Mckay scholarship is for students with an IEP or 504 plan, which are given to students with learning or medical disabilities.
All full-time law enforcement and active-duty military families automatically qualify for the Family Empowerment scholarships, regardless of paygrade. Applications can be submitted at www.stepupforstudents.org
The award amounts from these scholarships, while they vary, typically only cover part of our tuition, so there is a portion that you will be responsible for. Award money is applied to tuition first, then any remaining can go towards admissions fee, then testing.
Trinity Christian Academy is not the organization that you apply to for the scholarships. They are their own organization, and you apply on their website, which we have linked for you below. We are not LEGALLY able to assist anyone with applying for these scholarships.
Scholarships do not typically cover our full tuition, leaving families responsible for a portion. We offer several options for paying your part of tuition. www.tcajax.org/tuition-information
All students applying to Trinity Christian Academy must go through our application process, which consists of application and gathering of academic records, possible entrance testing, review, then the family is notified of acceptance or denial. This means that there is not enrollment based simply on receiving an award letter. APPLY NOW

At TCA we provide Honors classes in all core subject areas that provide a higher academic challenge to students who have met the academic standards. A list of Advanced Placement courses offered can be found through our upper division guidance office. We also are partnered with FSCJ and TBC with a dual enrollment program. This allows juniors and seniors who have passed FSCJ’s dual enrollment test to earn college & high school credits simultaneously. Students must provide their own transportation to dual enrollment classes.
Checklists for document requirements are listed above.
Applicants for kindergarten through 12th grade may be required to take an entrance exam. Applicants are put through a first review (academic and behavior records) by the review committee. If the review committee wishes to move forward with the applicant, you will then be invited to take the next steps, which is the entrance exam. This is not a placement test. It is used in determining if a student will be accepted into Trinity Christian Academy.
Once the admissions process is complete, and your student has been accepted, you will need these documents for registration:

There is a $700 admissions fee that is to be paid at the time of registration (grades 1-12 only). Depending on the time of your registration and the payment plan you choose, tuition payments may also be due.
This fee is applied to the cost of establishing and registering a student in our school, which secures your enrollment for the upcoming school year.
