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.

Important News for National Honor Society

Induction Ceremony

We apologize for any inconvenience, but the National Elementary Honor Society, National Junior Honor Society, and National Honor Society Induction Ceremony will have to be postponed until the beginning of next school year. There are several field trips, the play, the music concert, and club activities and as a result, some of the students will not be available to attend the ceremony. This is a huge honor and the students should be very proud of the position they have earned. We do not want to short any of them by rushing through a ceremony or having some of the students miss it due to other commitments. Again, we do apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.
Our Apologies,
NHS Advisors
