Welcome to The TA Prep Difference

Takoma Academy Preparatory School focuses on the whole child. With Christ at the center, we provide scholars with a Christian worldview that helps shape their character and instill a life of service in them. Our vision is to graduate scholars who are Thinkers, Achievers, Peacemakers, and Servant Leaders. Treating people with kindness in both words and actions is a piece of the character development we expect of our scholars. We can’t be everything to everyone but whatever we do, we do it with excellence. 

Our academic program prepares students for success, providing them with the resources to delve deeper into STEM and the Arts. We celebrate diversity in culture, academics, and thought because we believe each individual is a child of God! Our motto, “Where faith and learning unite” is evident in everything we do in the classroom and community through athletics, performance, and production. Each scholar on our campus is fully known and fully celebrated! 

We invite you to experience the TA Prep Difference!
