About

Texoma Christian School is a private, independent Christian school for children who live in and around the community of Sherman, Texas.  Accredited by  the Association of Christian Schools International and AdvancED  (Early Education -12). TCS offers its students a wide variety of high quality academic opportunities and extra-curricular activities.  These programs occur in a supportive atmosphere, which is designed to help each student develop as a total person.  Students are: (1) challenged to think and to observe; (2) trained to learn how to handle facts and to interpret ideas; (3) taught to get along properly with fellow human beings; (4) encouraged to develop and express their feelings and attitudes in a considerate manner; and (5) motivated to relate appropriately to God, to others, to the creation, and to themselves.

School History

Texoma Christian School began in 1982 when a group of Sherman Bible Church members approached the leadership of the church with their vision for a Christian school.  After nine months of planning, hiring Pre-school teachers, and selecting curriculum, the school commenced operation in the fall of 1982 with two classrooms and 41 students. The dream then, and the goal now, is a vibrant Christian education that challenges students and provides a superior scholastic experience.  Mrs. Sue Hall served as the school's first Director.

In 1989, as the enrollment of TCS spanned Pre-school through fourth grade, a group of parents saw the need to expand enrollment to include a middle school. From 1989 to 1994, several local churches hosted the middle school.  In 1996-97, the sixteenth year of its existence, the enrollment of the two schools had reached 250 students.  Ms. Kathy Curry, the middle school Director, and Mrs. Sue Hall, elementary school Director, worked together with their respective boards to create one Christian school district.  The school received full accreditation by the Association of Christian Schools International in 1998. During that year, school officials decided to add a high school, one grade level per year.

In August, 2003, TCS opened the doors of its new newly constructed facility to approximately 325 students. The new facility includes a state of the art gymnasium, full commercial kitchen, thirty-six classrooms, a well-equipped play ground, an all purpose track, and softball and baseball fields.  Long range plans include the future construction of permanent buildings for the elementary school, middle school, high school, and administration building.  


 Parent Testimonials

As parents of two students who attended Texoma Christian School from pre-school 3 through high school we can heartily endorse TCS as an excellent choice for the education of your children. We believe that Texoma Christian School offers a unique opportunity for each child to develop intellectually, physically, and spiritually.

 Both of our children graduated from TCS as National Merit Scholars and were admitted to highly selective colleges. These accomplishments speak highly of the academic rigor of the school. Our children also had the opportunity to participate in athletic activities, succeeding even at the state level. However, what makes Texoma Christian School so appealing to us is that our children have been taught from a Christian worldview. The biblical truths we were teaching at home were reinforced at school. Issues of faith, integrity, work ethic, and morals were addressed openly and regularly. Our children had Christian teachers who loved them, were involved in their lives, and functioned as role models.

 We found no other school that promoted educational, physical, and spiritual growth in our children. There are many places parents could send their children to receive an education, but TCS is the only school we know of where a child can have the whole person addressed—intellect, body, and spirit—and therefore, we highly recommend Texoma Christian School.

I am the mother of seven children, all of whom attend TCS. We moved here in the summer of 2005 and the children started at TCS in the Fall of that year. We have had a wonderful experience at TCS. The children have found meaningful friendships here at TCS. The teachers have been caring and supportive. We believe in the Christian principles that TCS teaches and instills in the children through both the curriculum and personally through relationships. We look forward to many more years of being part of the TCS family.
