NCEA Monthly Feature School: Trenton Catholic Academy

Located on a beautiful, quiet 64-acre campus in suburban Hamilton, NJ, Trenton Catholic Academy serves as the regional PreK-12 school for the Diocese of Trenton. With a demanding preparatory curriculum, TCA prepares a universal population to succeed now, as well as in college and beyond.

A National Merit Scholar, a McDonald’s All-American student athlete, a NCEA Distinguished Principal Award winner, a NAESP National Distinguished Principal recipient, numerous service awards and accolades all garnered in the 2014-2015 school year alone, are but a few of the reasons Trenton Catholic Academy in Hamilton, NJ is a great place for students to learn. Since our establishment in 2005 as the only Pre-K- 12 regional school in the Diocese of Trenton, TCA has remained a mission-driven academic institution, providing a 21st century education to all of our students. Whether 8 or 18, these students know that they will be challenged to grow academically, emotionally, socially and spiritually. Our teachers work diligently and are unswerving in their belief that all children when equipped with guidance, the appropriate tools and resources have the ability to learn, mature and prosper. Educators instruct the whole child and serve as mentors and coaches in the countless after-school sports and clubs offered to students. From singing in the choir, to volunteering their time assisting patients afflicted with Alzheimer’s disease or building a functioning robot for STEM competitions, our students use their God-given talents and abilities to serve others and excel in ways they only dreamed possible. Most important, our students can practice their Catholic faith, continuing to develop their relationship with Jesus Christ in a safe and nurturing prayer-filled atmosphere. It is certain that in the classroom, the basketball court and athletic fields or in service to others, our students at TCA continue to prove that Catholic schools have it all! We are proud of our Trenton Catholic Academy family and we look forward to sharing our story with others.

We educate a culturally and academically diverse student body to be responsible citizens of a global community through a challenging and relevant curriculum centered in Catholic tradition and values.
