Opening August 2019

We are delighted to announce that Two Rivers Classical Academy will open this fall! We will provide classes for Kindergarten through 7th Grade, and we’re eagerly anticipating our first day of classes on Monday, August 26, 2019.

What’s been happening?

We’ve been quiet for a while…no emails or clever Facebook posts…so we need to catch you up. Our initial application deadline was March 1, and after that, we sat down with each family – and each student – for a “family interview.” We learned a great deal from (and enjoyed getting to know) each one, and we’ve been working with those first families to put together a plan for the first year of classes.

Our advisory groups, which kicked off at our “Launch Meeting” back in February, also have been working hard to plan various aspects of our first year. From uniforms and calendars, to attendance policies and security procedures, parents and friends have joined in the work of building TRCA.

We noticed something as we were meeting with the first TRCA families: All of the parents we interviewed could be described as “highly driven.” Each family, in its own way, demonstrated a commitment to the pursuit of excellence (and maybe “adventure” too). We are immensely grateful to these families, and we’re humbled by the opportunity to build a learning community together with them!

Is it too late to join in?

Absolutely not. If you missed our initial deadline, you are still welcome to apply for this fall! We have openings in all of our classes (though some may be limited). 

Teachers are now welcome to apply, whether that’s you or someone you know. Our website contains employment information and instructions for submitting a résumé.

And don’t feel left out if you’re not ready to enroll this fall or able to teach! If you want to see a strong collaborative, classical, Christian school develop in Des Moines, just contact us to pitch in with your talents, time, or financial support.

We are grateful for what God is doing, and we have much to accomplish between now and August. And we’ll have many more details to announce in upcoming weeks and months. Watch your inbox and be sure that your friends, family, church, and community know about Two Rivers Classical Academy.

Veritas. Virtus. Vocatio.
