    Zion Christian Academy is one of the top schools in the area. My children are challenged in their classwork and I feel they are being fully prepared to do college material. In fact one of my daughters is being taught College Level Biology as a Freshman. Exposure to facts and ideas that are above the base level of academics is an incredible advantage.

    Zion Christian Academy has bullying issues that have been going on for years. They have been brought to the administration of the school and they are never addressed. They try to keep everything hush hush because of the reputation of the school. I am a parent of a former student and the only way we could get it to stop was to switch schools. Its all about who you are and what have you done for me lately. Money and reputation talks at this school.

    Our student has been at Zion since pre-kindergarten and has received an excellent education. Achievement test scores for the school are excellent and coupled with a Bible-based world view he is receiving great preparation for college and the world beyond. There are many activities at Zion that allow students to be involved not only in athletics but student government theater and good Bible studies. The faculty and administration at Zion truly care about the students they minister to and also teach. Many are at Zion as a calling and not just a job and it shows in the way the students are taught. Super school full of caring people!

    Our oldest son attended Zion for 2 years. He would still be there if we had not had to move out of state. We loved Zion! We were impressed with their devotion to academics & spiritual growth. It was well worth the time our son spent there.

    All three of my children have graduated from Zion. The academic level of the Math Science and Language areas are unsurpassed and my students were well prepared for college. The caring attitude of the Administration and teachers is by far the best we have ever experienced and we have been in several private schools. A tremendous bonus has been the great Bible teaching from a loving devoted faculty that practices what they preach. Another great advantage is the sports and fine arts departments. Having three students at the school we have been a part of choir band painting soccer and basketball and the theatre department. The school has offered a very well rounded curriculum for our famiy. A metropolitan school in a country setting! Thanks Zion!
