Educational Opportunities for Residents

TCM has its own on-campus Christian school called Tupelo Children’s Mansion Academy (TCMA) that serves children from Pre-Kindergarten through 12th grade. Students are taught by dedicated teachers and learn through a variety of methods and programs, depending on their age and specific needs. Children attend school Monday through Friday and are provided with a uniform that they wear each day. A typical school day at TCMA has students eating breakfast and lunch in the TCMA cafeteria and participating in core classes for mathematics, reading, history, science/health, and English as well as electives or related education classes for art, music, and physical education. The curriculum and methods of teaching used are dependent upon a student’s grade level:

  • Pre-Kindergarten: Pre-K is associated with the on-campus daycare that serves both the TCM children and the children of staff members who are too young to attend school. We use a curriculum specific to Pre-K to help prepare our youngest students for Kindergarten.
  • Kindergarten through 8th Grade: Students in K-8 are taught in multi-grade classrooms by certified teachers using Abeka, a comprehensive, research-based curriculum that is built on Christian values. Abeka uses a biblical perspective and time-proven academic methods and materials to educate children of all different learning abilities.
  • 9th through 12th Grade: High school students are taught using a hybrid model that incorporates online learning and teacher-taught classes. Students work in large computer labs under the supervision and direction of degreed teachers to complete coursework through Acellus Academy, which is a fully-accredited online homeschool program. This ensures that students earn credit for classes they complete through Acellus and that these credits will be applied toward their high school degree should they transfer elsewhere. Juniors and seniors also have the option to take dual-credit courses through the local community college, Itawamba Community College. Our educational staff works closely with our high school students to ensure they are completing the required courses to be able to earn their high school diploma.

TCMA provides year round educational opportunities for students. Though we take short breaks throughout the year, students still engage in camps, life skills training, and enrichment activities during the summer months.

Specialized Learning Opportunities

The staff at TCM and TCMA understand that not every child learns at the same rate, and a number of the children coming to us have special needs or disabilities – some that require help beyond what we are able to provide on-campus. We collaborate with the local public school district and therapists in the community to establish individualized education plans (IEPs), interventions, and related services for students with disabilities or other special needs. For some children, this means they attend the public school
full-time in order to have their needs met, while others attend TCMA but receive additional services such as speech-language therapy, occupational therapy, or physical therapy. Our goal for every child at TCM is to do whatever is in their best interest by providing them with the support and resources they need to be successful in education and in life.
