First Christian Pentecostal Academy Reviews

I have two daughters who have been attending since Pre Kindergarten.  I travel from Staten Island, New York to take my kids here.  The level of education and the caliber of educators make this a great investment.  These teachers care for my girls as if they were their own.  The peace of mind I have that my girls are in an environment that shares my values for education and biblical worldview, make this a school I would recommend to all.  -  Rev.

I have two sons one of which graduated from FCPA  and one who currently attends this awesome Christ-centered school. I feel so blessed to have found a school where God is put first and the love of our Lord and Savior is seen daily.

Hidy Vargas:  I have three children & all three have attended & graduated from this wonderful school.  I agree with Jordan & Pauline's testimonial, this shcool is the best kept secret in Jersey City.  My children were given the strong religous foundation that I believe all families should offer their children.  This school truly prepared my three children for a spriritual life in a world where God is constanly pushed away from families. May God continue to bless FCPA.

FCPA is a well kept secret in Jersey City.  It is the first school I encountered where prayer is a priority and the Word of God comes first in all things.  This school exemplifies the Fruit of the Spirit and  through demonstration by every single staff, from principal to maintainance, that if we seek God first, that all things will be added.  Don't get me wrong, the academic curriculum is as rigorous as any blue ribbon school; many students graduate and go to the # 1 high school in the state of New Jersey. But, it is the Vision and the Mission of this school that is admirable.  Train up a child ...  We love FCPA
Thank you Staff of FCPA Keep up the good works.

I am very proud of the professionalism of this school. I say this because this is the only school I know that the teachers do not work for the money, but only for the education of the children. The children receive the hands-on education necessary for them to progress in high school and college. I attended public schools and failed to get the education that this academy provides. I am very happy to say that my son attends First Christian Academy.

I think that this is a very good school. I thought my son will have a hard time adjusting coming from a different school but I was wrong. Since first day, my son loved the school! He found a second home in this school. The kids were friendly and they have good manners and the staff really cares. I love it that the principal and the teachers are  always at the gate when kids are going home to make sure that each kid is being picked up by the right person and they know every kid's parent; it makes me feel that my child is safe and being taken cared of. Everyday my son is excited when he goes home telling us what he learned that day. And even though they do a lot of work at home, he doesn't mind and he enjoys doing it. I highly recommend this school. What we're paying for is worth it. We're investing in our child's future and we believe that this school is a great investment.

In my own personal estimation, FCPA is a unique entity in the field of academia. Their academic excellence and moral eminence cannot be over-emphasized. Ask me about their teachers; they are separated brand of staffs that are wonderfully wonderful, disciplined, loving, patient,  and most significantly, intellectually stimulating to their students. Irrefutably, the level of their unwavering moral support to both the students and their parents is quite great. One day, my seven year old son said to me; "Daddy when I grow up and have my own family, I will send my children to First Christian Pentecostal Academy"  What a blessing to have this genre of institution in Jersey City!
