Tree of Life Christian Preparatory School (TLC Prep) seeks to prepare young minds for citizenship here on earth and for eternity. We place value on both a child’s academic accomplishments and their spiritual growth. The school believes that academic excellence and Christ-like behavior results from outstanding teachers with Christian standards, small classrooms, and an imaginative, individualized curriculum.


Tree of Life Christian Preparatory School (TLC Prep) is supported by Fredericksburg Seventh-day Adventist Church

We feel strongly that the home, the church, and the school form a partnership to accomplish these goals. Children who embrace opportunities with enthusiasm, a teacher who nurtures their growth, and parents and church members who support the many facets of school life join to form the family that is the TLC Prep.

To achieve this goal, we encourage each student to:

  • Develop a personal relationship with God and their fellow men as stated in Matthew 2:37-39
  • Master all required academic skills
  • Value labor – physical and mental – as the blessing God intended
  • Cultivate physical fitness, mental ability, and moral purity

TLC Prep operates in harmony with the guidance and direction of the Office of Education, North American Division of the Seventh-day Adventist Church. [Visit official website.]
