Why Choose Traders Point
"Traders Point Christian Schools will prepare and equip students to reach their highest individual potential to impact the world for Christ."
Area families have many different, academically strong options to consider in central Indiana for their students. Traders Point is unique in a number of ways that we believe set us apart among our peer schools.
Academic strength and opportunities
Smaller class sizes and low student-teacher ratio means stronger student/teacher bonds and hands on learning.
The Professional Learning Community teaching methodology focuses on individual student learning, not just teachers teaching.
Three full accreditations: the Association of Christian Schools International, the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools through AdvancEd, and Indiana as a Freeway School.
We offer dozens more classes than are required to graduate in Indiana through our expert faculty and partnerships with Indiana University and Indiana Wesleyan University.
Daily schedule that maximizes learning, flexible for individual class needs and provides time every day for academic support and enrichment based on each student’s needs.
TPCHS awards an Indiana Core 40 diploma (or Core 40 with Academic Honors), with the Indiana seal. Soon our graduates will be able to graduate with a distinction on their diploma if they choose to enroll in one of our Schools Within a School.
The smaller community at Traders taught our alumni to self-advocate and develop strong relationships with their teachers. They have confidence to work closely with their college professors - a confidence many of their peers do not have. Alumni say this is a key to their success.
We intentionally chose Spanish as our world language. This best prepares our students to impact the world for Christ.
Biblical Integration and Instruction
Full biblical worldview integration into all subject areas. You can study the Bible, or you can be immersed in a biblical worldview all day, every day. Only in a Christian school can students learn, see and practice their faith at this level.
We lead students to ask the tough questions of faith and find those answers while still in the loving environment of their home, church and school. In short, before they leave for college.
We explore many different worldviews AND compare them to biblical truth. Our students learn to identify these in our culture and battle the constant lies in our society that will attack their faith if left unidentified. This skill is not taught in most other schools.
TPCHS Exploration Trips
Purpose: TPCHS students in grades 10-12 will annually embark on Exploration Trips the week before Spring Break. The trips will align with the credo of TPCS or the academic focus of the particular school in which the student is enrolled. Students will be required to participate in the Love Indy trip as 9th graders and then the journey of their choice each year after that. The "School" choices will be focused on enhancing the learning focus of each school. A student who is a member of a School will have the first choice for the trip associated with their school. Students who are no a member of a particular School are still expected to attend a trip and wil make their selection based on the offerings available each year.
Smaller graduating classes means our guidance counselor knows our students. They will never be a number or faceless.
Most schools have visiting colleges for students to talk with. We also take our students to the annual National College Fair downtown, with over 250 universities and career options represented.
Because we know our students, we help guide them to the best scholarship opportunities.
While others may offer more fine arts or athletic choices, we offer participation--the opportunity to be part of teams and groups that aren’t available at larger schools because so many students try out.
Through the strength of our coaches we often play schools, sometimes nationally ranked, that are well outside our school size. This builds college playing opportunities and the scholarships that go with that.
Our size makes us flexible.
Partnership with Traders Point Christian Church
Traders Point Christian Schools has a partnership with Traders Point Christian Church (TPCC), one of the 100 fastest growing churches in America. Better yet than their strength of support for us is the strong faith and stability of their leadership and their focus on Christ. Few area schools have a church partner, let alone one like TPCC.
