COVID-19 Information and Resources
Old Globe

We have 3 Scenarios outline for the 2021-2022 school year.

 

As we develop plans that consider various aspects of how our school might be affected, we must be flexible. These plans may be scaled up or down depending on local conditions. No matter which scenario, our mission is to provide a complete education which promotes academic excellence and a biblical worldview. It is the goal of Tower Grove Christian Academy to equip students with the intellect and character they need to impact their world.

Students in Classroom

Please view our outline of Safety precautions.

We take the health and well-being of our students, staff, and faculty serious. 

Our goal is to provide an environment that is conductive to education but also a place where students feel confident about their safety and health.
