Tipton Christian Academy was founded in 1979 as a preschool and ministry of First Baptist Church in Covington, Tennessee. The school was originally named First Baptist Church Nursery School and began with 3 classes. In 2008, a change in mission and a greater vision to become Covington's first Christian school, the name was changed to Tipton Christian Academy.
Today, Tipton Christian Academy is Tipton County's only Christian school and is committed to educating, inspiring, and discipling our students. Located on a shared campus with First Baptist Church, Tipton Christian Academy follows a discipleship model of Christian education. High standards of learning presented from a biblical worldview are found in all courses and at all grade levels. Tipton Christian Academy is a fully accredited academic institution. Approved through the Department of Education, Tipton Christian Academy has dual accreditation through the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) and Cognia (formerly AdvancEd).
