Welcome to Tidioute Community Charter School

The Tidioute Community Charter School, located in Victorian Tidioute, Pennsylvania, is a rural K4-12 School. TCCS prides itself on small class sizes with more individualized attention, Kindergarten for 4 and 5 year olds, and a state of the art technology program. The students are immersed in a vigorous curriculum that promotes project-based learning with a focus on the environment and community.

Nestled amid the Allegheny National Forest, along the Allegheny River , TCCS is the ideal setting for students interested in the environment. With our hands on approach, students have the opportunity to experience Science and Math as they never have before. As the centerpiece for the Tidioute Community, TCCS promotes civic responsibility to our students by instilling in them a lifelong desire to make a difference in their communities. A mentorship program for grades 9-12 also gives the students the opportunity to receive real world experiences in a field of their choice in and around Warren County. At the Tidioute Community Charter School our goal is to provide a world-class education in a small town environment.
