    Our son is in Pre-K at PCCA and we LOVE the teacher. She is so experienced and attentive. He absolutely loves coming to school every day and is learning so much.

    PCCA is a wonderful school your teacher actually knows you name and knows who you are they care about everyone no matter who it is they will not make fun of you or favorite anyone I love PCCA you learn more because you have more one on one time with the teachers and they are always there to help. if you are ready for the next step say algebra 1 you will be able to have the opportunity to take it even if you are the only one in your class. the teacher can help you not only with academically but also spiritually. I love PCCA

    Pine Castle Christian Academy is a wonderful school now located at 7101 Lk Ellenor Drive. Our children are thriving academically socially and spiritually. If you are searching for a small christian school please visit PCCA you will not be disappointed.

    PCCA is the best Christian School in Orlando period. The teachers and staff truly care about your children and will above and beyond to make sure they are getting the best education possible. It would be extremely sad if PCCA cannot find a new school home and move forward as a family. I LOVE PCCA and would highly recommend it to anyone.

    I love this school. My child has been attending for 2 years and I'm really afraid that he will not be able to continue as school is having difficulties finding a new location. WONDERFUL TEACHERS AND WONDERFUL FOUNDATION for your child.

    Absolutely Wonderful! I Have sent both my older daughter and younger daughter to this school and they have been taught in every aspect. They know leadership very strong Christians and friendships. Out of all the schools Pine Castle Christian Academy in by far the best.

    My son said it all when he remarked 'At Pine Castle we're a family' We are thrilled he is not only academically challenged but happy as well.

    At first Pine Castle seems like a good school but before you know it you find out how PCCA is really like. First of the teachers show great favouritism to certain students. The kids at school are irrespectable. They claim to be christian but they are far from that. All of the student perrty much do what they want and not get in trouble.Not everyone is like this but most are. I would not recommend this school to anyone.

    I'd like to take this opportunity to thank Pine Castle Christian Academy for the education that my 2 sons received there. This school is the greatest all the way from the staff teachers maintenance and coaches. The environment here on campus is so family oriented and the teachers really show they care. My boys have come away with great friends and great memories. With comparison to all the christian schools around I'm glad we chose Pine Castle Christian.

    I want to thank the wonderful and caring teachers at Pine Castle Christian Academy for teaching my daughter for the last 8 years. She has received an excellent education academically as well as socially and spiritually. The nurturing family environment has been just what she has needed. She has made friendships that will last a lifetime. The teachers really care about the students and go above and beyond the call of duty. Thank you PCCA!

    We tried PCCA and have regretted it ever since. My kids learned more worldly values and more hypocrisy there which is even more detrimental because it is suppose to e a Christian School. There is much favoritism lack of respect for the teachers lack of Christian roll models in the teachers because of their language and choices they make. Things are not taken care of and therefore spiral out of control. This seems only to be prevalent in high school. Lower school seems to be fine.

    We are new to this school. No discipline in the classroom but plenty of favoritism in the classroom for those that have been there a long time. Poor academics. Public school was much more challenging. Kids are unfriendly and unwelcoming even mean which surprised me at a 'Christian' school. Class selection is limited for those that want to take challenging AP or honors classes. The best thing about this school is the Bible classes and memorization that my child has really enjoyed. I am disappointed and wondering what to do next?

    My children have attended Pine Castle Christian for elementary and middle school and have loved every minute of it. They are challenged but not overwhelmed and each year have had fabulous teachers. They love the activities offered and the sense of family and community they feel. We look forward to the high school years as well. Go Eagles!

    I found at Pine Castle Christian School that the lack of discipline is overwhelming. Problems are not handled in the proper manner and you get a lot of lip service. The same children continue to get away with very bad behavior and are not help accountable. We thought that our children were in a Christian school and things would be handled in a Christian manner and that is not so. The parent involvement is great. The teachers are wonderful but their hands are tied when it comes to matters of discipline. The level of education is average but not up to public school standards.

    I have four children who have each attended Pine Castle Christian Academy since they were in pre-school. The best thing about our school is the community...students teachers administration and parents. We are like a big extended family. The teachers and administrators go to great lengths to get to know the families and get them involved. This makes for a great environment for the students to learn because they know how much they are loved and cared for. Pine Castle Christian Academy is equipping students of today to be leaders...in their homes churches and communities! Go Eagles!

    It is a very nurturning environment. A good music program limited art program and a very good sports program.

    My child found the small classes and compassionate teachers encouraging. The environment was nurturing and the fellow students welcoming and warm. The principal is is intellectually curious and focused on scholarship setting high standards for educators. The campus is beautiful and new.

    I homeschooled my children for many years. When I was ready for them to go to formal school I chose Pine Castle Christian for its excellent reputation in our community. Their experience there has been very positive. The teachers are very caring. If one of my children needs extra help or work with something they hold help classes and let me know that he needs to stay after school for help. Being athletic my children have been involved with the sports program there. The atheltic program has grown by leaps and bounds as had the music and drama programs. The families involved at PCCA are wonderful and supportive. The administration is always looking for way to improve and making positive changes when it is necessary. PCCA has a very homey feel to it. The teachers make it feel like an extension of our family and keep us informed.

    Pine Castle Christian is a school with high parent involvement--they have to turn away parents from chaperoning field trips for instance--with a good non-denominational Christian environment although it is run by the Methodist church. Graduates go on to many highly rated colleges including Ivy league. Extracurriculars are more plentiful than most private schools including a band and football starting in 2005-06. My student is in preschool currently with a first year teacher. I had hoped for a bit more discipline from this teacher however my son's behavior has still matured nonetheless in this year. She does have an issue with spelling problems in paperwork that goes home but from preschool that is really not an issue. I would have a really hard time with that if this were a higher grade.

    Excellent school. We are very happy with it and we are confident we made the right decision enrolling our kids in it.
