Who Are We?
Tallulah Academy/Delta Christian was built by the hands of dedicated families in 1969, and ever since the first day of Delta Christian School, Tallulah Academy has been advancing the minds of students. Our school has always been in a class of its own where students and teachers alike pride themselves on excellence. Tallulah Academy is a place where blue and gold hangs proudly from busy hallways to highways and friendships begun will be ever cherished. It is easy to see the pride Tallulah Academy students and alumni give to the combination of primary colors, as they are a reminder of memories ever cherished. It is not Farmers’ Field, Delta Christian, Tallulah Academy, or Wylma Perry Memorial Library that gives those colors a special meaning – it is the people.
Tallulah Academy was built by challengers, fueled by dedication, and headed by success. Teachers at Tallulah Academy understand and work diligently to instill a passion for learning and consideration for greatness in their pupils. These men and women enact positive instruction and initiatives to make students desire to learn. It is the faculty and staff’s goal to mold young minds to become future leaders both understanding and strong. We are TA - a class of our own.
