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.

A Message from Our Superintendent and Principal

Dear TECA Families,

As you should know by now, the school will be closed for the remainder of the school year. This means that we will be planning for distance learning to continue until the end of May. We have based our decision to keep the school closed on the guidance we received from federal, state, and local agencies. Although TECA is closed, classes are in session! All events scheduled for the remainder of the year have been canceled. We will be sharing more about opportunities to participate virtually in conferences, end of the year celebrations, community engagement activities, and school governance events.

Please take a moment to read our complete April 5, 2020, principal's letter for more information.

In partnership,

Anakarita Allen and Kevin Chávez
