This school is a waste of time and money. All they do is load you up with homework, and don't even teach it. My dad has to teach me everything when I get home, as if I am home schooled. I used to be a A's and B's student. Now it is a real struggle, I am borderline B's and I get C's/D's simetimes. First day of school I was about 1 minute late, and all they did was complain about me being late. This school was the worst decision of my life. PLEASE DO NOT GO TO THIS SCHOOL

I absolutely love Madison Academy! As a student, I can tell you that the school challenges me academically as well as spiritually. Some people think that because the school is Church of Christ affiliated, their child might not be treated the same way as all the other children, but that simply is not true. I am not Church of Christ, but I find that it does not hinder me in anyway. A student's experience here is what they make of it, not what others make of it for them. My favorite thing about this school is its love of Christ. We are really just one big family who can join together and worship him not only in chapel, but also in the classroom. Many teachers and coaches desire a personal relationship with each student, and they strive to help their students reach their academic and spiritual goals everyday. If you want your child to be challenged academically, athletically, and spiritually, than Madison Academy is by far the best place for your child. The price may be steep, but I truly think it is worth it.

This is a wonderful school. The communication between parents, faculty, and administrative staff is second to none. If you're looking to make a solid investment in your kid's future, then I highly recommend Madison Academy.

Worst decision I've ever made. Practically homeschooled my child the entire time. I feel that I and my child were poorly treated and sought better more cost effective alternatives. I personally feel that the school isn't worth the money we paid and spent. I'm extremely disappointed! Don't waste your time or resources!

Too much politics not enough teaching. Basically had to homeschool what the teachers should have been teaching and didn't! It's all about how much money they squeeze out of you for everything.

This school is what you make of it. They offer an advanced degree with some AP classes. It is true that they do not offer as large of a selection as a Bob Jones. It is a much smaller environmnet and very clicish according to church affiliation. It is much easier to have a child in different grades because they are all on the same campus. Some kids graduate from here and do as well as from anywhere else. If you are willing to pay for the convenience and you need the before and after school care, you probably can not beat it. The lower sports class allows for a more average student to make the team and still be competitive. It makes for a good environment and for those who have the income, it is a smaller setting with more convenience for those with 2 working partents. If you are a stay at home parent you can have the same if not better opportunities at a larger school for free. MA is not a God send but it did find a niche that some are willing to pay for.

The school overall is okay. My son doesn't enjoy going and he seems behind his friends who attend public schools. Also, the tuition goes up every year, it has increased 20% just since we have been there. I don't feel it is worth it any longer.

My husband and I love the school and so does our daughter. She will be returning for her third year in 2013. I do wish tuition wouldn't go up every year as it may become difficult to pay much more for education in a town that has great public schools.

As a parent, I found Madison Academy to be academically sound in preparing our children for college. After graduation from MA, my son received an academic scholarship to Birmingham-Southern, and his classmates received over 3 million dollars worth of academic scholarship offers based on their ACT and SAT scores. MA is recognized as an Apple Distinguished School, awarded for demonstrating excellence and leadership in academics. I would highly recommend it as a school with the right balance between academics, extra-curricular activities, and character building.

I am completely sold on Madison Academy. Fantastic faculty! Great athletic programs! Their Apple laptop program has been a big hit with the kids. As far as I know, they are the only area school with such a program. The only drawback is that there are waiting pools in most classes.

If you are looking for acedemic excellence and high standards do NOT attend Madison Academy. It is not worth the 6000+ you pay to send your child here for the limited academic oppurtunities. They have very, very few of the AP classes offered in public schools. and the few they do have are taught very poorly. They care more for their sports teams than the academic achievement of their students. They rank ALL of their students the same, so the students that take easier classes can be on the same scale as those who dont. The kids there are not very motivated to achieve high success. Very few have gone through Madison Academy have acquired the ACT score and motivation to get into an out of state school.

We couldn't be happier with our decision to place our son in Madison Academy . We've been impressed with everyone from the teachers to the principals. More importantly, I feel the school strikes a good balance being not overly religious, but focused on good values and morals. I highly recommend MA.

My son has been going to MA for 3 years. We enjoy the small classroom environment. He is very happy and well adjusted. The standards are high and the children are motivated to achieve. I wanted to send my child to the local public school but it was too crowded. My son is treated special and he is not just a number.

After moving to Huntsville, we found Madison Academy and couldn't be happier. MA is all about the right things from academics to character building. It is small enough to provide a family-friendly atmosphere and big enough to offer an enriching experience to all. WE LOVE IT! Teachers are great and staff is superb.

Our daughter has attended Little Madison Academy, and we would highly recommend this school to anyone. It is the best school that we could find. She is safe, secure, and the level of learning is outstanding.

Madison Academy is a very good private school. My daughter goes to this school and we have never been happier with the results in academics. My daughter has pulled up her GPA massivly and is still going. She loves the school and the close knit family that the school provides. all the faculty and students are on name basis. Its great.
