TCA is a private homeschool which serves as Virginia Wesleyan University's innovative laboratory school serving diverse PK-12th grade students. Licensed teachers create curriculum and supervise the homeschooling for parents on campus or online.
The mission of Tidewater Collegiate Academy at Virginia Wesleyan University (TCA) is to facilitate the development of global citizens equipped with 21st century skills ready to make the world a better place.
Education is a human right and necessary for the sustainability of a healthy, global society.
Each student is exceptional, designed for their own purpose; therefore, they need a course of study that is meaningful for their individual goals.
Teachers, guardians, parents, and community members are facilitators and resources that guide, encourage, and inform student inquiry.
Learning is about growth through experiences that can happen anywhere, anytime with reflection.
Every student deserves a safe environment to learn to be their best self.
TCA is supported by the TCA Foundation, which is a 501c3 created to ensure that all families, regardless of background have access to exceptional education. All donations made to the foundation directly impact our students and are tax deductable.
