Takoma Academy offers a college-prep, rigorous academic program that prepares students with the 21st century skills needed to be successful in today’s competing market.  The administration, faculty, and staff of TA all seek to equip young men and women with the values, knowledge, skills, wisdom, and confidence they need to meet their fullest potential.  Learning takes place all day on our campus–both inside and outside of the classroom–but our academic program particularly helps our students thrive in the rapidly changing, morally complex world beyond our gates.  


Our core courses provide a strong foundation in fundamentals, while an array of electives–including many honors and Advanced Placement classes–allow our students to explore additional interests and reach for new levels of achievement.  We both challenge and nurture the students entrusted to our care.


Takoma Academy's faculty is comprised of enthusiastic, dedicated men and women who strive to create an engaging learning environment that encourages critical thinking, intellectual curiosity, and academic excellence.  Our low 13:1 student-teacher ratio ensures each scholar gets the support and attention they needs.  In classes, teachers incorporate creative assessments and draw on the rich resources of our city to generate real-world connections and encourage responsible local, national, and global citizenship.  With the leadership of Principal Carla Thrower and the support of a gifted team, Takoma Academy stands ready to educate young people of “faith, vision, and purpose” who model compassion, personal excellence, and leadership for our world.
