Dear TCA Family,

As you may have heard, our Sister School, Eagle Christian Academy, is adding grades 9-12 starting Fall 2017. This is great news! God’s faithfulness to Texas Christian Academy has been evident year after year since it opened in 2000, and He continues to show His favor as our school family is now given the opportunity to join the ECA family.

God has sustained and preserved TCA for 17 years despite low enrollment and extremely heavy financial needs, and our School Board has prayed, worked, and met continuously to be certain of God’s direction for our school. It has become clear that when this 2016-2017 school year comes to a close, Texas Christian Academy must also close. This decision is the result of years and years of seeking the Lord’s will. While there is genuine disappointment in knowing that TCA will not be a presence in the community anymore, we are reassured in knowing that a new option for our students will be intact at Eagle Christian Academy.

Please accept this news as we in leadership accept it: as God’s provision for the TCA family.

Countless TCA graduates have come to us from Waco Baptist Academy, now Eagle Christian Academy, so our bond with them is long-standing. Additionally, our incredibly successful Serve-A-Thon is based completely on ECA’s Jog-A-Thon. The ECA Mission Statement reflects our own Mission Statement, focused on building servant-leaders. God has already been faithful to TCA through ECA, and He is continuing this as we close one door to open another.

Please contact us if you have any questions regarding this transition. Thank you for your support!

Sincerely,
Gary Bender
