Tyler Street Christian Academy educates by inspiring students to love learning, strengthening students with Christ-like character and Biblical foundations for living, and encouraging students to pursue their dreams and callings.


Tyler Street Christian Academy’s vision is to be an excellent Christian school that develops servant leaders in a loving, nurturing environment.


  1.  We believe in the eternally existing, personal, triune God: Father, Son, and Holy  Spirit.
  2. We believe in the Deity of Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, and His ascension to the right hand of the Father, where He now acts as Mediator and Advocate.
  3. We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit whose indwelling in all believers enables them to live Godly lives.
  4. We believe that the Holy Bible is a sufficient guide for all men, that it is an inspired Word of God through the activity of the Holy Spirit, and that in holy reverence it is our chief authority for living. In matters difficult to resolve through Christian prayer and conversation and Church tradition, it is accepted as our final authority in faith and practice.
  5. We believe that regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential for the salvation of lost and sinful men and that all who receive the Lord Jesus Christ by faith are born again and become children of God.
  6. We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ and in the necessity of all His followers maintaining good works as evidence of faith.
  7. We believe that those who accept Jesus Christ as their Savior become members of the living body of Christ and thereby will seek out, join and participate in a local Church through worship of God, have fellowship with the brethren, and give service to all mankind in a sacrificial spirit.
  8. We believe that every believer and follower of the Lord Jesus Christ must be responsible to witness by deed and by word, and thereby will be involved in the evangelization of the world, personally and through missionary efforts.
  9. We believe in the personal return of our Lord Jesus Christ as the fulfillment and vindication of history, that all men are in need of salvation for this life and the next, and that some will know the resurrection of life and a heavenly homecoming, while others will know the final separation from God and the Hell of His lost love and providence.

There is one overarching reason we are here: we love our students. It’s why we connect with each of them personally and shape our methods to their needs. Because our students are worthwhile and serving them through education is our dream.

I am grateful to have served the Academy for more than 40 years. I have also been blessed to have both of my children attend and graduate. I strongly believe in our mission to inspire, strengthen, and encourage students.

We aspire for all students, from the youngest to the oldest, to LOVE learning. We are passionate about the importance of learning as a lifelong skill, and we hope to pass this on to all our students. This is a place where students are encouraged to ask hard questions, and we journey with them through personal challenges as they mature in their walk with Christ.

We are educating and preparing our students for careers in the future that may not exist yet, making both learning and technology applications critical. We desire for parents to partner with us in their child’s education and that you feel at home in our close-knit environment. Faith and family go together, and help build a strong foundation for learning. What a blessing to educate children in a Christian environment!

I pray that your search for a school ends here. I invite you to explore our website and discover why families continue to entrust us with their students.

Tyler Street Christian Academy was founded in 1972, as a ministry of Tyler Street United Methodist Church. Dr. Paul Morrell, then pastor of Tyler Street United Methodist Church, saw that families within the church and the community lacked the choice for a local, private school centered on Christian principles and values.

Dr. Morell and his wife Ann envisioned an academy that would promote a spirit of excellence, and would work alongside families in building up the whole person of each child­: intellectually, emotionally, spiritually, and physically. They envisioned a place that would become a model academy for other Christian organizations, and help students to see all things as God sees them – with justice, love and mercy.

During the early years of the school’s establishment, classes were held at Tyler Street United Methodist Church.  Fundraising in 1970’s resulted in the construction of a high school wing and gymnasium across the street from the church. In 1998, the Board of Directors saw the need to construct a building which would centralize the entire student body. With the support of the community and many Dallas philanthropic foundations, a new building was completed in 2001.

Because the founders of TSCA brought the school into being based on principles set down by the Word, TSCA is dedicated to a strict program of exceptional educational opportunity and the preservation of Christian ideals. TSCA faculty are unique among others because their thoughtful, spiritual insights are as much a part of the daily curriculum as the subjects they instruct.

Tyler Street Christian Academy educates by inspiring students to love learning, strengthening students with Christ-like character and Biblical foundations for living, and encouraging students to pursue their dreams and callings.

As a result, it is our objective to produce graduates who are intellectually, emotionally, and spiritually mature. We place a high value on servant-leadership, and strive to instill in our students a sense of responsibility for their community.

Today, as a mature and established school, we continue to serve our community as the only private, Christian preschool-12th grade school in the southern sector of Dallas.
