Why Choose TPCA for High School?
Weekly Look Into the Heart of Traders Point High School
Leadership Following Biblical Principles, Not Cultural Norms
Each of our high school students has a staff mentor for their years at Traders. They meet weekly with this mentor and a small group of their peers. These groups serve many purposes for our students, including prayer, academic review, social and emotional support; service experience; bible study. One of the studies students take teaches biblical leadership and is titled "Habitudes", developed by Growing Leaders ministry in Atlanta, GA.
We believe that every student has leadership potential because leadership is influence. Specifically designed for students born in the past 25 years, Habitudes lessons are a fun, creative and engaging way for our students to learn and practice leadership. Habitudes teaches timeless character and leadership principles through the power of an image, a conversation and an experience, utilizing biblical leadership principles.

Leadership involves much planning and one of the best ways to learn to plan is through Student Council.
Sponsored by principal Mr. Jason Klingerman, our Student Council consists of two peer elected representatives from each grade plus four upperclassmen officers (President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer). The council meets regularly to plan social events, organize service opportunities and in general advocate for students and serve Traders Point as called upon.
While staff members guide the council, our students are primarily responsible to plan, organize, and carry out their various activities. Learning by doing can sometimes be clunky and not very pretty, but that is the very best way for students to become confident. Immersive learning. Some of the major council activities include:
- Qtrly event: Homecoming Dance onsite
- Qtrly event: Fall social dance onsite
- Qtrly event: Winter semi-formal dance onsite
- Qtryl event: Formal Prom offsite (no, it is not in our gym as rumor would say)
- Coordinating service opportunities with staff
- Providing assistance with school events
Most students gain either confirmation or redirection as a result of their internship. That can translate into money saved for you or them down the road. Traders is committed to expanding internship opportunities for our students in the future. If you or your business/organization would be interested in hosting a Traders Point intern please contact Mrs. Harris at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Each week we send you this enews sharing one tidbit about our classes, student and graduate accomplishments, facility updates, faculty bios - anything we think will help you to know WHY you would choose Traders for your child's high school. We already know and love your child and have built a program that is intentional about their academic and spiritual growth. What better place for them to become wise and fully prepared to fulfill God's plan for their life!
