Shadow Day

A student Shadow Day is an excellent opportunity for prospective students to experience what TCA has to offer.  The goal of a Shadow Day is to allow students to experience a day at Tipton Christian Academy and get a better understanding of our programs and curriculum.  Students will be partnered with a TCA student with similar interests and "shadow" them through a typical school day.  Students who are shadowing will follow a regular class schedule with students of the same grade level.  We know that starting a new school is a big decision for a student and their families.  We encourage all interested students to come and see Tipton Christian Academy personally!   A Shadow Day experience is open to students entering 7th through 12th grade.
