Welcome to Turlock Christian School

It’s my privilege to welcome you to Turlock Christian School at the start of the 2019-20 school year. Does this seem as odd to you as it does to me? There seems to be something out of sync about my welcoming you to TC. After all, nearly every one of you has been part of Turlock Christian longer than I. I have been here just a few short weeks and here I am telling you, “I’m glad you’re here.” Well, I’m glad I’m here too.

While still in the early stages of meeting people and getting to know them, I am amazed at what I am discovering. The Turlock Christian family consists of many gifted, passionate and dedicated people who love God, love students (their own and other’s), and who love this school.

Our Focus

At TC, our focus is “Preparing students for college and life in the vital areas of faith, virtue and knowledge.” We are committed to academic excellence and have a proud history of preparing students for outstanding college careers. But whether college is a student’s goal or not, Turlock Christian’s primary goal is to prepare them to live life as Kingdom citizens, making an impact for Jesus in every role and facet of their lives.

Our Core Values

We seek to teach and live out four Core Values.


We strive to do our best always and to realize fully, our God-given potential.

“Whatever you do, do your work heartily, as for the Lord rather than for men…” (Colossians 3:23)


We serve in partnership with students, their families, churches and others who share our values.

“…make my joy complete by being of the same mind, maintaining the same love, united in spirit, intent on one purpose.” (Philippians 2:2)


We are committed to living unselfishly, making life-changing differences in others, our community, country and world.

“Your kingdom come. Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.” (Matthew 6:10)


We seek to be and to produce people whose lives are marked by love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.

“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.” (Galatians 5:22-23)

Our Hope

By definition, “epic” means “beyond the usual” or “out of the ordinary.” The first letters of our Core Values spell “EPIC.” Our hope is that all who attend TC will have a student experience of epic proportions. We pray that Turlock Christian will prepare them to honor God by living unusual and out of the ordinary lives, dedicated fully to Him.
