"Taking An Extra Step
T.E.A. Christian Academy, Inc. welcomes applications from all students—regardless of race, color, religion, or national origin—whose principles and interests are in harmony with the ideals and traditions of the academy. It is understood that everyone who is accepted thereby pledges to observe the policy of the school. All records should be in the school’s office prior to new students entering. The state of Alabama requires that all immunization records be up to date and on file in the school office. A student will be asked to remain out of school until such records are completed. The principal and/or administrative committee will review all applicants before they are accepted; students who are not accepted will be notified.
LET T.E.A. CHRISTIAN ACADEMY, INC. TAKE THOSE WORRIES OFF YOUR MIND!
HELP MAKE A DIFFERENCE.
UNDERSTAND YOUR EDUCATIONAL HISTORY:
I personally feel that parents and educators should take a proactive role in helping to make a difference in the life of a child as often as possible. It does not matter if you are a parent, educator, mentor, minister, or business owner—we all have a part to play. After all, there is a saying: "If I can help somebody as I travel along the way, then my living will not be in vain.” If you knew where we once stood versus where we are today, perhaps the “No Child Left Behind” concept will have more of an impact.
Former Governor George Wallace stood in the doorway of the University of Alabama in an effort to continue to keep the black man at a negative disadvantage in spite of the 1954 Brown vs. The Board of Education ruling. The event became known as “The Stand in the Schoolhouse Door.” President John F. Kennedy federalized the Alabama National Guard and ordered its units to the University's campus, where Wallace finally stepped aside and returned to Montgomery, Alabama, allowing students to enter the school. Now that education is free and open to all students, let’s not allow education to be wasted. –M.L. McElroy-Washington
