Arnold Christian Academy is located in Arnold, MD. It is a private school that serves 38 students in grades K-8. Arnold Christian Academy is coed (school has male and female students) and is Christian (no specific denomination) in orientation. The school belongs to the Association of Christian Schools International.
In 2012, Arnold Christian Academy had 7 students for every full-time equivalent teacher. The Maryland average is 15 students per full-time equivalent teacher.
I would recommend this private school to anyone who wants a reasonably priced school that has a team of teachers that care about the children that attend the school. I am very pleased with the curriculum and the way that my child has progressed. The teachers are also great at working with the parents

My family has been with the school for 8 years. Some of the teachers and administrators have been there longer, as this is the most devoted school staff I have ever seen. They have helped teach and guide all 3 of my children since K. My children are very strong academically, and they have done enough to keep them learning and challenged, while still meeting the needs of students at different levels, and with different learning styles. They point out their academic and character strengths every year in a certificate given with the final report card. They teach them about God and the bible and thankfulness and forgiveness. They pray with them. However, they do not beat the kids over their heads with bibles or condemn them, as this is a warm, loving environment, not a rigid, harsh atmosphere as some Christian atmospheres out there can be. They also do not teach the specifics of different Christian denominations, the areas that Christians disagree about the most are not taught here, which I found to be a huge relief. Also, the price is more affordable than other private schools. A large private school in Annapolis charges a much higher tuition, and everyone assumes they are wonderful. However I attended that other school personally in high school and I knew then I would never send my children there. I have been so blessed to have ACA for my children all of these years. I trust them with my children. I have heard about other people's experiences with schools, and I watch the news. I have been grateful to have this school to drop my children off at every day.

I am a parent of a former and current students at Arnold Christian Academy and we love this school. I have always felt that the teachers have a love for God and their students. The teachers have always gone above and beyond to help my children achieve their academic goals. I have also found that the teachers are always helping my children in their spiritual walk as well. All of this being said, there is no other place we would send our children.
When we first enrolled in 2006 we could barely afford private tuition for one student. Now in 2010 we have two students who have strong academics, a love for God and learning....there is no better school.
This is a great school. The academics are strong. The teachers are helpful and care about each student. Their class sizes are small. They develop a great insight into how a student learns best and what their strengths and weaknesses are. Students are happy, friendly and respect each other. The principal is very caring and engaged. They have art, music, instrumental music, PE, and computers to accent the academics. We are so happy to have found this school and my student is happy at school for the first time. We plan to stay until eighth grade!
This is a wonderful school with a nurturing educational environment. The teachers are wonderful, the principal is exemplary. It is a loving environment focused on the individuals strengths and weaknesses. My son has attended for two years and is excelling by leaps and bounds not only academically but spiritually. He loves going to school everyday. Can you imagine that? The school is truly a blessing.
I am pleased to say enjoy attending Arnold Christian Academy. The teachers incorporate various learning styles to create a interest and fun in the curriculum that they teach and the smaller classrooms are conducive to lots of one on one interactions. Their grades reflect their positive attirude towards school and their willingness to learn.
Arnold Christian Academy is a God centered environment where the students and staff apply God’s word in everyday situations. The staff at ACA are genuinely interested in the betterment of my children's future.
