Letter from the Principal

As parents, you make important decisions concerning your children every day.  However, few decisions have more impact on your child’s life than their education.  At The Classical Academy of Sarasota we offer your child the opportunity to study and learn following a classical, time-honored approach, an education steeped in the best of the Western Canon.  Our students study history in chronological order, often using original source documents.  At TCA students read timeless literary classics, diagram sentences, learn grammar and writing, study Latin, and master the concepts of math and science.  We fall in love with works created by the greatest composers and artists throughout history.  It is not enough however to train the mind without attending to the heart.  TCA is a school immersed in virtue, training students in the habits that will build their character.  We teach the habits, we model virtue, and we expect both from our students.  To provide our students with a well-rounded education, we provide many different opportunities for extra-curricular involvement, including theater, band, choir, after school clubs, and many different middle and high school sports.

An education at TCA is so much more than just passing along information or training students to pass a test.  Our aim is to train students’ hearts and minds so they become the next generation of logical and virtuous citizens.

We are a private pre-K through 12th grade classical liberal arts school located in Sarasota, FL.  We are fully accredited, offering small class sizes, and affordable tuition.  Our professors are passionate individuals committed to bringing excellence to their classrooms every day.

I would love to meet you and give you a personal tour of TCA.  Please call or email to schedule a time.

I look forward to speaking with you.
