Why Choose TA Prep?

More than a school. A community of critical thinkers, leaders, and peace makers.

To us, education doesn’t stop at the classroom. From the day they walk through our doors, Takoma Academy Preparatory School students become a part of a community united by a common goal: success through education. Supported, guided, and encouraged by this community, our students are set on the path to becoming critical thinkers, achievers, and servant leaders—prepared to go confidently wherever God guides them.

Educating the “whole child”
At TA Prep, we take education seriously. Our students receive an education that balances academics with two other very important components: a Christian world view and strong values. We believe that the path to success—and the path to honoring God—must include a balance of all three.

We follow an educational structure that is proven and powerfully successful. On top of strong academics, we add nurturing core, Christ-like behavior traits and values, such as compassion, integrity, personal accountability, and a desire to serve others. Throughout all, our students are honoring God by committing to becoming peace makers as well as scholars.

TA Prep is accredited by the North American Division of Seventh-day Adventists, the Maryland State Department of Education, and Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools.

At the heart of a community of learning
When we say we’re part of a community dedicated to education, we mean it! TA Prep is located adjacent to Takoma Academy (Adventist high school) and just down the street from Washington Adventist University. We coordinate with both schools to provide our students with the high school and college experience, but in a safe, supportive environment. Students and faculty from all three schools enthusiastically connect and foster relationships, working together to provide a consistent, quality education from Kindergarten through college graduation.
Committed to your child’s success
We pledge to you and your child that we will provide an outstanding Christian education in a setting that inspires a love of learning, surrounded by dedicated, caring teachers and never-ending opportunities for growth and excellence.
