    EPA is an excellent school where children can learn in a safe and loving environment. The teachers are loving kind and very professional. I love that the administration and all of the faculty are not afraid to live out Godly principals in front of the children and their families. The children love to learn here!! What a peaceful and family friendly place for children to go to school.

    After only 17 days in their designated public school this fall we started reviewing our options to keep our two grandchildren's education moving in a forward manner. Their's is a US Army family and the Enterprise public school was fully two-years behind grade level from where they had just come in Clarksville TN the staff we encountered were not very kid-friendly to newcomers and the grandchildren (who are accustomed to relocating) were miserable. Home-schooling was considered but then we discovered Enterprise Prep Academy. What a wonderful answer to our dilemma! The class sizes are small the teachers caring and truly dedicated to ensuring the child's needs are met--educationally and emotionally. It's having small-group instruction one-on-one attention--and that's the classroom--not a special pull-out group like in public schools! Being a Christian family we are especially happy to have the faith-based curriculum. The grandchildren are excited to go to class everyday the teachers are other staff members are friendly and encourage each child to excel making the most of their capabilities. The school is inviting family-oriented a truly wonderful experience.

    I hope anyone with half a brain will notice that the most negative comments were written by students. I know that some came to EPA already with problems. That being said im sure the negative comments by parents were parents of those problem children. The school has some new teachers and have gotten rid of some bad apples and let me just tell you it is like a whole different world. Yes it is a Christian education so if you don't care to teach your child that dont send them here. The staff truly care about the students and their families. The parents are wonderfully involved. The support and help from Highpointe has only enhanced the school. Rumors fly and people believe them before finding out the truth....decide for yourself and visit the school. ...dont think of it as a place to place your problem child please....I am sure other parents don't think that would be fair to their kids either. Btw the Bob Jones curriculum is much better than the old A-Beka curriculum they now use with 3-up.

    EPA was once a wonderful school. Now it really isn't. I attended here from Kindergarten to seventh grade. My last year seventh grade was absolutely terrible. The elementary grades in EPA are decent. Seventh and above is the worst. This school is strongly Protestant. Being a Roman Catholic surrounded by a majority of Baptist kids I was singled out. Every week in chapel we were asked if we were saved. It was torture for me this whole last year. I was completely segregated from everyone in my grade. The kids in the middle and high school are not a very good group at all. EPA has no extra curricular activities at all except for volleyball. Don't get me wrong the volleyball team is actually pretty good. They are such a small school. Every year EPA is declining in quality dramatically. Some teaches are excellent - some are not. Think twice before sending your kids to EPA above sixth grade. This school may work for some but it didn't work for my family.

    I went to this school and it was a horrendous experience. The curriculum is a joke the teachers are ridiculously unprofessional and bullying runs rampant. Don't send your child here unless you plan on paying for their therapy sessions. I would give this school no stars if it were possible. Most two faced unchristian school ever!!!

    I had to pull my child out of this school after one year. The curriculum is very weak and the principal encouraged the lackadaisical attitude of the faculty. They do not care about the parents concerns overall it was a horrible experience.

    I like a poster below am attending a university and majoring in philosophy. The college curriculum has blown my mind. Needless to say I have been mocked for the ignorance I have been taught at EPA. The curriculum is nothing but proselytizing. If you want to raise your child to be a Christian do it at home or in church but not through school. Your child will end up missing modern and accepted knowledge in the areas of philosophy science history literature and even a few topics in mathematics. This is not where the seeds of an intellectual are sewn.

    Contrary to several negative remarks posted on this site our son graduated from EPA several years ago and has been very successful in a highly respected private college making the deans list. EPA was an excellent platform for his college prep. In fact that was the reason we sent him to EPA and we are so thankful we kept him out of public schools. Also the founding couple of EPA are outstanding people and it would be difficult to find anyone caring more about your kids. Invest in your kids send them to EPA.

    As a current university student and past student of EPA I can unreservedly say I am thankful I left before high school. As a biology major I speak with authority when I say the religious dogmatic curriculum is unfit for teaching science. The curriculum teaches anti-evolutionism and anti-conservationism. Granted this may fall within your own religious leanings it is diametrically opposed to the central teachings of modern biology -- which is necessary to master before going to medical school dental school graduate school in the life sciences... Much of the physical science curriculum goes by the wayside when learning about only Bible-believing historic chemists and physicists and not about many central figures in such disciplines. Additionally historical governmental economic and literary texts are presented from a hyper-conservative and unilateral point of view. In short I feel this is not a school in which one can foster intellectualism necessary for future academic success at the highest level.

    What a joy it is to come to Enterprise Prep everyday. This school is not large in size but what it lacks in size it makes up for with HEART! Our children are given a safe Christian environment to come to each day. The administration teachers and staff work hard to give the students the best possible education. Our headmaster ALWAYS has her door open to listen and parents are encouraged to be a part of their childs day.

    This school is owned by a couple and not is not facilitated like most schools are. It is very different. Some issues are resolved and some are not. We liked it but may not be coming back. I'm not sure if it is really worth the asking cost. I think you should know this before signing the agreements. You will have to pay for a lot. Including the lunches with are super expensive. Some work does not come home too. You may wonder where your child is at times with his work. A safe place overall. Field trips could improve. And I wish they would not allow some trouble makers into the school for financial reasons.

    Enterprise Prep Academy does not have the problems I have read in some of the one star reviews. The school must have changed in the last few months because my children have not experienced any negativity from the teachers or the staff. We are happy with the ability to be able to pray and have chapel in school and are pleased with the education the children are receiving. Thank you for being a beacon of light in Enterprise.

    EPA provides a wonderful Christian education. Our family is so happy with EPA and my children are excited to go to school each day.

    This school is terrible and this is really reflected in it's graduates. Well over half are not in college/and or not succeeding in college or even public schools. Get your child out before it's too late! Most of these 5 star reviews were probably written by staff/principal such as the one below. Teachers ARE NOT QUALIFIED. My son was a straight A student at EPA and now is struggling to catch up in public school.

    You go into the school and tell you of all the Christian benefits and the family atmosphere. But my child has been hurt by this school for way too long. The teachers make unprofessional decisions and dont act as teachers. Most of the teachers that are assigned to teaching a class arent properly educated in the subjects. I do not agree to how they run the sports programs. The kids most of the time sit and listen to the teachers rants rather then running around getting Physical Education. Their schedule is always interrupted by the Coaches or other teachers. The children miss up to 4 classes a week between chapel and interruptions. They are very un-Christian like in many circumstances. My child has grown up in the Enterprise Preparatory Academy school system and I wish that they would have prepared him/her more for college/new school. My son/daughter is behind on many subjects and His/her credits are not as if they should be. I am not impressed. Once we decided to leave the school they turned there back on my family and many other families which decided to leave.

    Horrible school above the elementary grades. Their middle and high school programs are not acedemic at all. Seriously I wouldn't send my dog there. The owners are not concerned about students. When I went to them with concerns she told me "We are a business first. That is out primary concern."

    EPA has been such a blessing to our family. The teachers are committed to our children and the kids are so motivated.

    This school has been a dream come true for our child. We have enjoyed the staff and atmosphere at EPA. Thanks

    EPA is a great school and I am glad I am a student here. I would not ever want to go anywhere else. We need to support this school. Where else are we going to get a school that Prays and says pledges to the American Flag Christian Flag and the Bible!! We carry our Bibles and we READ them at school and we pray in the name of Jesus. Why would anyone put that down??
