    Overview

    The mission of Tuscaloosa Academy is to provide a college-preparatory education in a supportive environment of intellectual freedom, to cultivate a love of learning, and to maximize each student's potential.

    In addition to a superior college preparatory/honors curriculum, denoted as CP (college preparatory) on
    official transcripts, the students learn and abide by an Honor System. This is a means of instilling in each individual
    student an active sense of honor, integrity, personal responsibility, honesty, trustworthiness, self-respect, good
    citizenship, and respect for the school. It creates an atmosphere of trust at the school by encouraging the entire
    student body to hold these qualities in the highest esteem.

    Tuscaloosa Academy students are involved outside of the classroom and are given the opportunity to excel in
    extracurricular activities. Upper School students average 20 hours of community service and more than 75 percent
    play at least one sport. All students in grades seven-12 are required to purchase a personal tablet PC or a MacBook
    resulting in a mastery of technology before graduation. Student health and safety is supported by a preventative
    mandatory drug testing program for all students in grades seven-12.
