The Benefits of a TCGDC Education

Our Transformation Education philosophy prepares students for long-term success and is based upon:

  • A culture throughout our schools that puts the needs of the child first and shows each child they are valued as an individual
  • Creative learning environments that communicate a vision of quality throughout the school
  • Brain-based learning that helps children think critically, become problem-solvers and learn independently
  • Project- based learning that allows children to have hands-on learning experiences
  • The use of technology to allow students to compete in a global economy
  • Pre-vocational training to prepare students for the future
  • Students become caring, contributing members of the community
  • Emphasis on family engagement and involvement
