Texoma Christian School is a private, independent Christian school for students who live in and around the community of Sherman, Texas. Accredited by the Association of Christian Schools International and Cognia (formerly AdvancED). 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.
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 playground, 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.
