    This is a GREAT Christian school! I transferred my daughter here from public school and the change has been amazing. Her grades have skyrocketed as well as her self esteem. The schools curiculum is excellent. I love how much Christianity is a part of every subject they teach. My daughter is like a new person since going here. I thank God for the teachers who sacrifice so much to bless the children. The tuition is very reasonable; but that doesn't mean quality is compromised in any way. These teachers truly feel called to teach the kids and it shows. I plan on keeping my daughter here through grade 12. I only wish I would have found this school sooner! Thank you!!!

    Christ's Academy is a small but wonderul school. The class sizes are small so there is a lot of individual attention. The Abeka curriculum is fun and challenging for the students. The tuition is kept very low on purpose so families who desire an excellent education in a Christian atmosphere can afford it. The school's discipline is strict but kind with obedience respect and self control taught and modeled by the faculty on a daily basis. Due to the low tuition there are no frills or extra activities available. I would recommend this school especially for the earlier years. I feel the higher grade levels may be at a disadavantage due to the lack of facilities available (not for lack of teaching or teacher quality!).

    Wow!! A true answer to prayer. This schools curriculum and teachers are excellent. Promoting Godly character with high academic standards mainly through Abeka. After checking other schools and their pricing I can not believe this school is so inexpensive. They are about half the price of any others. Excellent school & I really recommend. You can be a part of your childs education by helping in class (if you wish).

    I'm a parent of two students (Pre-K and 5th) and I've got to say that this is a great school. My children love their teachers. This is a small school where everyone is treated like family. I would definately recommend this school.

    Christ's Academy delivers a high quality academic program. ABeka curriculum is used primarily-and kids are reading in Pre-K (4 yr.olds). the spiritual aspects of the school are extraordinary. The staff members really love the children and encourage character and discipline in a loving manner.Children become real spiritual leaders here. The worship is wonderful every week. They offer art on a weekly basis P.E. is offered twice a week and afterschool sports are offered as well. Parents are involved of their own free will which is refreshing these days-there's no contract to serve in lieu of tuition. The school is virtually unknown in the area not a lot of money is spent on advertising.
