Welcome to Tenacre

Every day at Tenacre begins with a handshake as the head of school greets arriving students. This act of trust and personal attention sets the tone for all that follows. At Tenacre, we embrace the elementary years.
As a Pre-K through Grade 6 coed school, we offer a dynamic and exciting environment in which children progressively develop critical thinking skills, become confident and joyful learners, and move forward into higher education and life as caring citizens.

After meeting in the Christian B. Elliot Community Center foyer, sixth graders gave their pen pals tours of the campus before gathering in Wells Playhouse for refreshments. “I like it because you get to connect with older friends and learn about someone else,” explained a sixth grader. A classmate echoed the sentiment: “We get to meet new people—not just kids like us, but older people.”
