TC English Programs are shaped by a focus on the development of oral and written expression and communication skills. We believe that the facility and enthusiasm for language is essential for academic and life success.

The emphasis of our English Programs is on reading comprehension and writing. By refining the skills of reading and understanding, we help our students become astute critical readers. We encourage vocabulary development and literature appreciation. One of the focal points of our English Programs is the development of writing skills. Beginning with the basics of grammar and sentence structure, we teach students how to organize ideas, shape evidence, and develop clarity and sophistication in composition. Our writing instruction aims to foster in students a unique voice and confidence to express themselves through writing.

Our Writing the College Essay Program is designed to support high school seniors in the crafting and writing of the college essay. We guide our students through the entire writing process from brainstorming ideas to polishing the final draft. The Writing the College Essay Program helps students showcase their individuality through expressive composition.
