Dear Parents and Students:
We believe it is an honor to offer your family a safe, Christian environment that focuses on excellence in education. We are so pleased how the Lord has brought this program together and look forward to creating many wonderful memories with your family.
Our Staff are Christians first! They bring to our School a wide variety of experience. They love working with children and support the vision of this School. We are so blessed to have each of them working with us and trust you will feel the same as they serve your child’s educational needs.
We must ask ourselves, “What are we trying to accomplish here at TP Schools?” We are anxious to prove “Faith + Love + “Consistency” + “High Standards” + “Family & Staff Support” = Successful Students! YES, it takes all that and full student participation. This isn’t anything new! We’ve heard these standards for years. We just believe it’s our turn to make a difference and with God’s help, WE WILL!
This is our twelfth year as a Registered Ministry for Childcare Services and fourth year growing our Indiana State Accredited elementary school. We thrive off of our learning experiences and trust God to make this year better than ever!! You and your family are the reason we work toward excellence….We believe you deserve it!

ABOUT TP SCHOOLS
CHRIST AND EDUCATION MAKES THE BEST COMBINATION
PHILOSOPHY OF EDUCATION
TP Schools is committed to a holistic education process whereby each constituent (administrators, teachers, students, and parents) involved is responsible and accountable for the academic and spiritual development of each student.
TP Schools commits to having a well-trained staff that affirm, communicate, and work toward our goals.
Our Teachers, whose primary focus is to ensure that students meet or exceed the desired learning objectives, seek continuous personal and professional development, and are personally committed to the academic and spiritual enrichment of each student.
We want parents who are active in achieving the Academy’s mission, and participate in the evaluation and improvement of the instructional program.
VISION / MISSION STATEMENT
TP Schools is comprised of TP Kiddie Academy and Elementary/Middle School. We strive to build a solid foundation for our youth to build upon and to achieve academic excellence for the rest of their life. TP Schools is an Academy of learning for all children. We are serious about educating our students in a Christian environment!
The guidelines of the Bible and leadership of our church influence the rules and regulations that govern our school. Our entire staff will be challenged to provide quality education and an atmosphere conducive to the Twenty-First Century students.
ABOUT OUR FACULTY & STAFF
We strive as a staff at Turning Point Schools to be self-sacrificing and dedicated to Christian education. We share a sincere love for children, and a complete devotion to the Lord Jesus Christ.
All of our teachers provide a high-quality learning experiences that meet the educational and spiritual needs of the students at TPS. From the greeter at the front door to the custodial staff, the love of Jesus Christ is demonstrated throughout the day.
Our prospective is not "Do as I say" it is "Do as I do". We live, learn, play, and pray together.
Based on the biblical mandate in I Corinthians 10:31, that in whatever we do, we are to do all to the glory of God. Our goal is to strive for excellence in every academic subject, as well as in our extracurricular activities. The Christian should always strive to excel for the purpose of glorifying the Lord.
