Our School

A ministry of First Baptist Church Pearsall

Teach them to obey everything that I have taught you, and I will be with you always, even unto the end of this age.
— Matthew 28:20 NCV

Here at Tree of Life Learning Academy (TOLLA), our mission is to serve the Lord by providing an opportunity for an education of academic excellence and a safe learning environment that will prepare students to become productive, conscientious citizens.

Our Philosophy:

The purpose of TOLLA is to provide an opportunity for academic excellence in education.  

God's word tells us in Proverbs 3:18 "She (wisdom) is the tree of life to those who take hold of her; those who hold her fast will be blessed."  Wisdom comes from a relationship with God.  The greatest wisdom leads to knowing Jesus Christ as our personal savior.

We are thankful that you as parents are committed to providing your student a quality Christian Education and are willing to make the sacrifices necessary to transform your child's mind and heart.

We at TOLLA promise to partner with you to give your student an education, emphasizing Bible knowledge and academic excellence.  We earnestly request your prayers as we strive to provide excellence in education for Christ's glory.

Hours of Operation:

Our doors are open from 7:40 am to 3:45 pm Monday - Friday during our school year (unless it is a school holiday).  The grade start and end times are as follows:

  • Head start (3 year olds) - 8:00 am - 12:00 pm

  • Pre-K -1st Grade- 8:00 am - 3:00 pm

  • 2nd - 12th Grade - 8:00 am - 3:15 pm

School starts promptly at 8:00 am every morning and begins with the reciting of the pledges (Pledge of Allegiance, Pledge to the Texas Flag, Pledge to the Christian Flag and Pledge to the Bible) together as a school, followed by a prayer. The students then disperse to their classrooms for learning. 

School Colors, Mascot & Uniform:

TOLLA's school colors are Royal Blue & White and our mascot is the Owl, a symbol of strength and wisdom; two traits we encourage in all our students.  Our student uniform is a Royal Blue polo or a TOLLA t-shirt, along with blue, black or khaki bottoms or jeans (see TOLLA student handbook). Upon enrollment, families will be given a TOLLA handbook that includes the full dress code policy.
