The School Liaison Program is a Department of the Army Program designed to improve the educational environments and academics of K-12 school-aged family members whose parents are assigned to Army installations and activities. Our program also reaches out to other branches of the military and also our civilians who work for the DOD.
The purpose of the program is to provide a link between military Families and on and off post schools to assist them with those unique problems facing military children (PCS moves, deployments, differences in curriculum between stateside and overseas schools, and Department of Defense Schools and civilian schools).
School Age Children:

Cache High School was first organized in 1902, the same year the post office was built in Cache. Three years later in 1905, the settlement known as Cache became an incorporated municipality now known as the city of Cache, Oklahoma. Since then over 20 other original school districts in the surrounding area have joined the Cache School District. Today, Cache High School is a rapidly growing district of over 250 square miles. In 1978 the new high school was built on the South side of Cache Road which consisted of nine classrooms, a central office, and a library. In 1988 a new addition of 10 classrooms was added which included science rooms and a film projection room. Also, the Cache library/media center and a new cafeteria/meeting hall were added as part of this new addition. In 1995 another new addition was added to the east end of the building. Four classrooms, a lab preparation room and a set of bathroom facilities were added. In 2001 we added 2 computer labs and 2 classrooms onto the East end of the high school. We are a progressive 4A school that emphasizes academics through the three R’s: Respect, Responsibility, and Readiness.

Therefore, choosing the proper school environment requires you to gather information about the educational opportunities that are available to your child and family.
Scripture clearly teaches that parents are responsible for their children’s education and discipline. Trinity Christian Academy is not a substitute but an extension of the Christian home, and one means through which parents can fulfill the responsibility to educate their children. We look forward to helping you educate and develop your child for the glory of God!
