ABOUT US

Biblically-Founded

Since 1988 Tupelo Christian Preparatory School has been and is dedicated to the glory of God and is founded on the belief that God is the source of all truth as revealed in the Person of Jesus Christ. All areas of learning (spiritual, academic, physical, and social) are taught from the biblically based belief that truth is revealed in the Word of God. The Bible has prime significance in all subject areas.

Covenant-Based

TCPS regards the training of children as primarily the function of the home. TCPS believes that the Christian school and the Bible-believing church should work together with the home to provide a fully integrated program for the purpose of developing Christian personalities. Tupelo Christian Preparatory School intends to partner with parents/guardians in preparing their children for life as Christian servant-leaders, who choose character before career, wisdom beyond scholarship, service above self, and a lifestyle of participation over apathy, in order for them to impact the world for Christ for eternity.

Student-Centered

Students are recognized and treated as individuals with different levels of development at TCPS. They are given the opportunity to express their creativity and are encouraged to develop their abilities, skills, and insights within a biblical perspective so that they may effectively interact as Christians with the world around them.

Christ-Following

Some distinctives of Tupelo Christian Preparatory School include: Committed Christian teachers who instruct students to apply biblical principles to every aspect of daily living, thus encouraging them to live Christ-like lives. Teachers teach that all knowledge comes from God and each subject is to be viewed from a biblical perspective. Teachers are committed to assisting each student in developing biblically based thinking and reasoning skills, which will enable the student to obtain sound personal convictions.

The Goal of Education

At Tupelo Christian Preparatory School (TCPS) the goal of education is to glorify God by developing students who are equipped and motivated to serve God and others, as they apply a Christian worldview that sees Scripture as authoritative; man as created in God’s image, yet fallen; and God as Creator, Lord and Savior (Proverbs 9:10). Because the Bible is true and authoritative, it governs the entire curriculum at TCPS (2 Timothy 3:16). The content of every subject reflects who God is and what he has done. God not only reveals truth through the word he has spoken in Scripture, but also through the creation he has made (Psalm 19:1). Consequently, since our world was created by a wise God, not random chance, science and math can be tested and proved. The words we speak or write have meaning and are true or false, good or evil, creative or destructive. Students are a crowning part of God’s creation, made in his image so that they can think his thoughts and do his will (Psalm 8:3-6a). God has given them a mandate to, be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it (Genesis 1:28). This is the purpose of education, equipping the mind and character for a life-long adventure of learning and practice, to fulfill the creation mandate in a godly manner. The task of true education is to develop in students an understanding of God and the reality he has created; to practice that understanding to exercise a creative-redemptive dominion over creation within the context of loving God and fellow human beings. With an attitude of worship, God is glorified as his image is reflected in the lives of students, teachers and parents. We invite you to make application for the enrollment of your children in our school. We offer PK4 year-old through twelfth (12th) grade. It will be an honor and a privilege for us, the faculty and staff of TCPS, to join with you in the Christian education of your children.
