 Dear TCA Families, 

Even with all the chaos that has presented us since February, there is still so much to be thankful for this Thanksgiving.  We know this is not a year full of typical celebrations and gatherings with friends and families, but we hope you are still able to take a moment to appreciate how far we have come this year.

Recently, we have received a notice from the Bellevue School District that our accreditation are not being recognized for language credits per state OSPI requirement. Therefore, we will no longer plan on renewing our school’s for academic language accreditation after our certification is due at the end of June 2021. Instead, students must take the World Language Competency test or the AP Chinese exam to earn foreign language credits. We understand the importance of education for our students, and the academic team has been working hard to integrate the language tests into our teaching curricula to best prepare the higher-level students.

For more information, please read the attached document in this email. You can also visit our school blog here.  You might also visit the Washington Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction website here.   


Happy Thanksgiving!
