The Tidioute Community Charter School, located in Victorian Tidioute, Pennsylvania, is a rural K4-12 School."Tidioute" is an Iroquois word for "Protusion of Land," which refers to the sharp bend of the Allegheny River flowing beside the small town. Tidioute was founded by Europeans in 1800 as a Pennsylvania settlement. Thomas Arters is credited with being its first permanent European resident in 1806. His home, which he built in 1824, is still standing today. The first multi-room school in town was built in 1877 and was called "Tidioute Union School." This existed until 1904 when the Tidioute Borough built Tidioute School on land donated by the Hunter family. This school remains today as TCCS. TCCS prides itself on its heritage, 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.

Above Right: TCCS 6th Grade students reinact "A Day on Olympus"
As a culminating activity for the Mythology Unit, the sixth grade class participated in “A Day on Olympus”. Students had just finished reading the Lightning Thief, so after the PSSA’s we celebrated our accomplishments and efforts by having a feast consisting of traditional Greek food and a sampling of blue foods to go along with a motif in the book. The students performed skits and dressed in togas. There was an egg hunt so students could find the Golden Drachmas. Prizes were awarded for students who won the Olympic Games which consisted of Pass the Torch, discuss throwing, and traditional foot races! A great time was had by all!
