Ambassador Christian Academy Reviews
My child previously attended a public elementary school. We decided that we didn't care to tackle the large Middle School population. We chose Ambassador initially because it was affordable and promised to teach christian values and principles. We were pleased to find small class sizes and close knit students. Truly feels like a family environment. We do however, forfeit some of the luxuries of public school budgets , ie: Ipads, custodial staff, full time nurse etc. All in all, we are satisfied with the quality of the education our child is receiving..
ACA is a fantastic school! We are extremely pleased!
Both of my children attended ACA, in Glassboro, form kindergarten through 8th grade. I was extremely satisfied with the school! The Biblical training and the character development alone would have been well worth the investment, but my children received so much more! They graduated with a very strong academic foundation, were given opportunities to excel in the drama program and they thoroughly enjoyed the athletics.
The school offers soccer, basketball, cheerleading, baseball, softball, track & field. My children enjoyed them all. Both of my kids joined the chess team and enjoyed much success in local, state & regional tournaments. My daughter joined the Bible Quiz team and had a blast!
The school also has a very friendly family feel. I found it to be a loving environment, and great place for children to learn and grow. I highly recommend Ambassador Christian Academy!
Three of my children have graduated from Ambassador Christian. We've had a great experience with both the middle school and the elementary school. In the area of Bible I have found the teachers to be very grounded and knowledgeable. I have great faith in the teachers and in their commitment to minister to both their students and their families.
I highly recommend ACA to any family new to the area! Take a tour and check it out!
Ambassador prides themselves on creating a loving, family environment and this is certainly true. They have Spanish from Kindergarten up, and use A Beka curriculum for the lower grades. They have wonderful teachers, for the most part, and a very caring staff. I would say that for the lower grades, it is an excellent choice.
The middle school is newer and is still working out some kinks. They have some really excellent teachers, but have hired some inexperienced ones in the past didn't know how to teach or to discipline as well as they probably should have. Discipline is occasionally an issue in the middle school, as the "family environment" seems to be a little too accepting of certain behaviors, and sometimes parents get in the way. As with any small private school, there is always the political interaction of influential parents and church members to deal with.
The facilities they have are nice, clean and air-conditioned, but they really need more space. They also are sadly lacking in technology in the classrooms, although they do have a very nice computer lab, which all the students use for classes every week. I'm not a "sports" person so I can't address that area.
I would say that for grades K-4, they do a wonderful job both in education and in Christian guidance. In grades 5-8, there is some room to improve, so I would recommend comparing to other schools in the area before making a decision.
