Welcome to TECA

Welcome to the Thomas Edison Charter Academy website. Located in San Francisco, California, we serve more than 700 students in our Transitional Kindergarten through eighth grade classes.

Our unique program is balanced and maintains academic rigor while providing the needed supports to help students meet their goals. In its very foundation, it honors the importance of infusing arts into everyday school experiences, while offering language enrichment, to support the whole child.
