Tri-City College Prep Middle School
Opening in the Fall of 2019 for grades 5-8.
Eighths grader graduating from TCP Middle School will have first preference in attending TCP High School.
What is the school’s goal?
As with TCP High School, TCP Middle school’s major goal is to prepare students for college and leadership roles in life and the workplace.
What is the school’s philosophy?
Science is beginning to discover that there are some important changes happening in the middle school brain that, when addressed, enhance a student’s success in high school, college and life. Some of these brain age characteristics include dendrite pruning, endorphin production, technology effects, social/emotional equilibrium, and self-awareness. TCP Middle School will deliver curriculum in formats that support Middle School Brain Age.
What form will classroom instruction take?
Multi-grade classrooms, small group instruction, physical movement, optional alternative seating, exposure to multiple foreign languages, memory, test taking, and study skills instruction, and training in individual and group effective production techniques are some of the elements that will make TCP Middle School an effective and exciting place for middle school students.
Enrollment Instructions for Fall 2019
Step one: Application for Admissions

TCP’s overall school capacity is based upon the school’s charter set by the Arizona State Board for Charter Schools. TCP enrollment is based upon a lottery system, then waiting lists (based on the date and time the enrollment form was received) once capacity is reached. Eligibility for enrollment is not based upon academic ability, race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, gender, income level, disability, English proficiency or athletic ability. Capacity for each program, class and grade level is reviewed on an annual basis based on enrollment projections and therefor capacity in certain areas may be reached before overall capacity is reached.
Siblings of currently enrolled students and children and grandchildren of staff and Board Members can receive automatic enrollment if registration is received before the lottery.
