Blair Christian Academy Reviews
I am amazed daily at the progress my niece has made. She has been at BCA since she was a toddler, and she is now going to 1st grade. She is currently beyond a 1st grade reading level. What was even more amazing was listening to a PK4 student read a poem and student address at the graduation ceremony. It it is a small community, but there are many opportunities for students to get involved. She participated in Glee Club and Praise Dance. Next year, she is going to join the Chess Club. I just got an email about an upcoming Fishing Trip for families. They also have a Summer Camp and she is having a ball!
The teachers at Blair Christian Academy do not practice their duty with the small number of students that they have in the upper grades. The other reviews that you read here are true. The preschool and elementary program is adequate, middle school is a waste of your hard-earned money, and high school does not exist. Your child will require tutoring if he/she has no other training in the subjects. Parents have complained that their children's standardized test scores are dropping. Most of the staff and administration are well-meaning, but that won't help your kid. You would hope that you could find a school that supports and truly guides your child's academic and spiritual development, but sadly, you won't find it there.
