Mary Beth Avent
Lower School Principal

I am so happy to be starting another school year at TCCA! I have been with TCCA since the start in 2017 – it’s amazing to have experienced what God has done in the last 6 years.

Just a little about me: I have 5 adult children and 3 grandchildren with 2 more on the way this fall! My husband went home to be with Jesus in 2020. I enjoy spending time with my family, riding my sidecar motorcycle and going to the mountains when I can get away.

Education has always been important to me. I received my Bachelor’s in Business but a Master’s in Education. We educated our children at home and in co-ops for 17 years, until TCCA opened. Teaching them daily and designing our curriculum was challenging and rewarding. Previously, I was a Career Counselor; I now enjoy helping TCCA students connect with the world of work as I act as the TCCA Guidance Advisor also.
