Our Pre-K through 12th grade students are being molded and shaped with an uncompromising, Christ-centered education. Through highly qualified, committed, and Christ-following teachers, coaches and staff, TCCS is fully engaged in equipping students to develop their own unique God-given potential and a sense of responsibility toward God and the world around them.


Molding and shaping lives for the next generation is one of the greatest responsibilities and privileges entrusted to Traverse City Christian Schools. Since its inception TCCS has sought to educate each student’s heart, mind, and soul giving them a foundation “rooted and built up in Him, strengthened for the faith.” (Colossians 2:7)  Within this Biblical framework, and building upon what is taught in many homes and local congregations, our vision is to nurture a Christian environment where students boldly proclaim Christ as Creator, Redeemer, and Lord of all. For the past 20 years parents from all over our community have sent their students to TCCS because of our commitment to “Academic Excellence In A Christian Environment.” This commitment extends through every aspect of school life and into eternity.


Today, our dedicated faculty and staff are as committed as ever to preserving the legacy of Traverse City Christian Schools ensuring a healthy nurturing learning environment, and recognizing each student is uniquely gifted by God to serve Him. Similarly, parents and supporters of Traverse City Christian Schools are deeply committed to the investment of a Biblically grounded, Christ-centered education right here in our community. This year 234 pre-kindergarten through 12th grade students walk through the doors of TCCS each day and are challenged to integrate faith into all aspects of their learning.


Building on a foundation of prayer and legacy of hard work, the leadership of Traverse City Christian Schools is looking toward our future. As stewards of our legacy, plans are beginning to evolve which include a capital campaign to meet the needs of a growing student body, a “busting at the seams” facility, and to permanently retire our long term debt while maintaining our on going annual fund campaign.

Traverse City Christian Schools recognize every square inch of His creation gives evidence of His glory. Whether in a classroom, on a drama stage, in a music room or on an athletic team, students discover daily how God permeates every aspect of life.

“I have to thank my parents for sending me to a Christian school because I have an answer ready for those who ask, and am fully equipped  to share the love of Christ in a secular world.” ~ Meg

“My friends warm me when I’m cold, and remember me in their prayers. My teachers have been there for me in the bad and the good.  They always stick by me.  I love my school and everything about it.  I would never change it for anything in the world.”  ~ Natalie
