    Arnold Christian Academy ACA offers an educational environment that fosters academic excellence in combination with genuine spiritual growth. The dedicated teachers cultivate a successful attitude as they present the material in a way that teaches the students to want to learn and work to their very best potential. Because the classroom size is small it allows students to be cared for in an individual manner. The size however does not limit the opportunities. In addition to the core curriculum there are a variety of programs offered music PE Bible health band speech foreign language field trips school programs and opportunities for family involvement. We recently moved to the area and looked at several options for our child. After visiting the school and talking with some of the friendly staff it became clear that ACA was the best choice. My child comes home everyday with a smile and excitement for learning. He excels academically grows spiritually and thrives socially in a Christ-centered environment. As parents we could not be more grateful to the Lord for the positive impact that it has made on our son and family. ACA is definitively the very best.

    ACA has been a great school for my kids. Because it is a smaller school all the kids know each other and they help each other and get along very well. They have excellent teachers who really care about the students. If you want a Christian education for your children and a very loving and supportive learning environment this is the place.

    I have never experienced a school with the level of involvment to the students. Our daughter is in grade K and is academically so far ahead of her friends that are in local public elementary schools. The small class sizes give the opportunity for "REAL" one on one teaching. If you are looking for a school with high academic standards ACA should be considered.

    Arnold Christian Academy has been a wonderful blessing to my family. After Homeschooling for 11 years the school's staff provided a smooth and comforting transition for me and my children. It's small class size provides an ideal learning environment and each student receives that special "one on one" attention they deserve. All the staff is friendly inviting and welcomes as much parent involvement as possible. As parents we have the opportunity to join our stundents in activities throughout the year from field trips Olympics classroom helpers and even Pizza Lunch helpers. The Christian principals modeled by the staff makes being at school just like home. I highly reccomend ACA to any family seeking an education that edifies!

    Teachers at ACA are great! They make sure all the students understand the lesson they are teaching even if it requires further explanation. The have an interest in each student and because class sizes are small they can easily monitor how each student is doing. My student feels respected and cared about by the teachers and receives praise when it is due. Encouragement when it is needed. The principal is engaged in what teachers are doing and how parents feel. A great school school the way it should be.

    I would recommend this private school 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

    We moved here from Denver CO last year. We visited several local schools personally and interviewed others by phone. Our concerns were christian education quality and cost. We chose Arnold Christian because of the dedication and confidence exuded by Sue Maksim principal/teacher and the teachers at Arnold Christian. We have been very happy with our child's experience. He gets all the individual attention he needs and has most of the fun that he can imagine. He really enjoys the art and music/band program (saxophone). The teachers reinforce good character along with the core subject matter. The tuition is very affordable compared to local private schools in the area. We are very pleased!

    We have been with the school 8 years for a reason. They teach my children in academics and moral character and they do it with kindness. My kids have never wanted to go anywhere else they love this school. They have smaller classes and get way more time with the teachers who also are quite aware of what's going on unlike public school. I trust them with my children and I have been so thankful to have them in my children's lives.

    Actually I am a grandparent and I love Arnold Christian Academy for its caring teachers outstanding principal strong academics and for the values that the students are taught there. My grandson is now in the fourth grade. My grand-daughter has gone on to a Christian High School in the area. Both love ACA.

    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.

    Our family is blessed to have found this school. The Principal is so engaged and caring. Each child is treated as an individual and respected for their strengths and weaknesses. All of the teachers strive for excellence. Parents are very involved. Discipline is of the utmost importance and my child is excelling by leaps and bounds in this environment. We love it!

    This school has been a great blessing to our family. They offer small class size with teachers who genuinely care about the academic and spiritual needs of each child. They offer P.E. art music band and special education. The parents are super and get involved as much as possible. I've had 3 kids go through this school and I'd do it again given the chance.

    I just graduated from 8th grade after attending this school for two years. The school is overall great. The teachers are so involved with the class work that I got honor roll 3 out of 4 marking periods this year! The small class rooms allow the teachers to be involved. The older students (my class and others) do complain about the uniform but hey it's private school! The teachers become your best friends it was so hard to leave the school. I strongly recomend this school! Thanks A.C.A!
