Traders Point Christian Academy in Whitestown is rebranding.

The high school moniker will no longer be the Golden Eagles, sporting purple and gold colors. Instead, the new identity will be the Knights, wearing navy and silver.

“I feel like it has generated a lot of excitement and given our high school students an opportunity to create a new culture that they have rallied behind,” TPCA Athletic Director Adam Stevenson said.

The rebranding is part of a $7.5 million project to build a new high school and athletic field.

TPCA Director of Admissions Toni Kanzler said the cost of rebranding is included in the $7.5 million  and that the expansion was badly needed.

“We have reached the capacity on our current facility,” Kanzler said. “The high school students are having many of their classes every day in the church facility. We just don’t have room until we finish the building next summer.”

Kanzler said the new building is a flexible learning space that will allow teachers to create environments that will help students prepare for what comes after high school.

“All of these things partner together for what we are trying to accomplish with our students, which is to prepare them fully and to equip them so that they can fulfill what God’s call is on their life,” Kanzler said.

Kanzler said that Stevenson worked with coaches and others to rebrand the high school as the Knights because it is a unique mascot for the area and represents the school’s Christian values.

Students in kindergarten through eighth grade will remain the Golden Eagles.
