First Christian Academy Reviews

A lot of potential but preschool needs help

By a Parent on

I started off so excited about this school and thankful to have a Christian school nearby. I wanted to know my child was getting the best possible care, love and guidance in these critical early years. Instead, we ended up leaving the school and I've never felt so disappointed, especially with how my child was treated - the constant notes home for issues that could easily be dealt with in the classroom (ex. Notes for talking out of turn, taking a toy from one area of the room to another, come on, they're toddlers!)made both my child and myself feel embarrassed. Sitting her in a corner facing the wall for timeout? Barking orders as they are yelled at to be quiet? Sticking them in front of a tv in aftercare until their eyes gloss over? I could go on... The sad thing is that I KNOW I'm not alone. Other parents spoke openly about similar concerns and since we left I've also heard people in the community that I don't even know sharing the same thoughts. There are some amazing teachers and the facilities are great - they truly do love children but there are major issues with hiring, discipline policies and leadership. I hope and pray they figure it out soon!

Very pleased

FCA is an excellent school, my granddaughter has been attending FCA since Kindergarten and is now going into 4th, She doesn't want to go anywhere else. Great Christian values, FCA teaches your regular studies and also has bible studies, which I personally think is great.  The new headmaster has really made great changes for the school.  Also have a granddaughter in Daycare and she has been much happier at FCA.  Having parents and students is a plus and is done at every private school I have ever checked into.  And for the person complaining about students with disabilities, I see a young man everyday I take my grandchildren to FCA there in a wheel who is only able to function in a wheel chair.  

Not very Christian for a "Christian" school.

Does not allow any students with any sort of disability to attend this school.  All students and their parents are screened before they are allowed to enroll.  Doesn't that go against the very beliefs they teach?
