Our Approach

Innovation Practices

Instruction Methods

A collaborative and innovative teaching and learning modality that integrates architecture and design into standards-based curriculum.


A re-imagined environment that limits passive learning and provides environments for active learning that aligns with real-world project solving.

Project-Based Learning

Reading, Math, Science, and Social Studies come alive for students by centering learning around projects that help them understand how each these knowledge bases work together.

School Schedule

TCAAD is focused on holistic student success and this starts with our daily schedule. Our schedule runs 8: 30 am to 3:30 pm with pre-care and after-care available for a weekly fee. We will also have after-school clubs included in the after-school program.

TCAAD has developed our own curriculum under the Advisement of Vikki Stokes, M.Ed. She is a Principal, Consultant, and Songtress outside of work. Architecture and Design are infused in every grade level and subject. Projects are worked on during studio time as shown in the schedule.

Any and all curriculum and its associated instruments are owned solely by Tariq and Tiffany Abdullah and licensed and operated through the Tarchitects Foundation for Architecture and Design (TFAD). For more information on licensing, contact tabdullah@tarchitects.org.
