Extracurricular Activities

Starting in 4th grade, students have the opportunity to participate in FIRST Lego League. Children learn engineering and computer programming concepts by designing, building and programming small-scale robots.



In 2018 TRA debuted the addition of middle school sports: boys basketball and girls volleyball.

Secondary students can also compete in ultimate frisbee.


House System

Upon entering 7th grade, all students will enter a TRA house.  The house system is a way of connecting students with schoolmates from other grades.  Houses are made up of 7-12th graders and have various competitions and activities throughout the year to create friendship, build community, and forge character. Each year we hold a kick-off retreat at Tall Timber in Lake Wenatchee.

If we work upon marble, it will perish; if we work upon brass, time will efface it; if we rear temples, they will crumble into dust; but if we work upon immortal minds, if we imbue them with principles, with just fear of God and love of our fellowmen, we engrave on those tablets something which will brighten all eternity.
— Daniel Webster (1782 - 1852)
