Courses of Study

At Tampa Catholic, we strive to create an engaging and challenging curriculum for all of our students.

TC offers three levels of academics.  Each student’s schedule is tailored to the individual’s talents.  A student may be scheduled in Honors in one subject area but be placed in College Prep in another.  Students are not locked into any track and may move up to College Prep or Honors depending on their performance.
