Our child went to ACA for preschool and we were very disappointed. They appeared to have no understanding or experience in dealing with gifted children. When first enrolled, they told us they would be teaching Spanish and made other promises that were not fulfilled. I was not impressed by their academics. Their main focus appears to be athletics...

ACA was a great place as far as faculty is concerned. But the study habits I did not learn have made it hard to adjust to college life. The curriculum is extremely limited. It is more of an athletics school. And it is not a "non-denominational" Christian school. It is heavily Baptist influenced. But there were not many fights, so I felt safe there. I think there might've been less than 5 during my seven years there. And none were out of hand. Ever.

The faculty and staff of ACA partner with parents to promote their children's Christian and academic growth. Their pride and dedication shows!

My husband and I are throughly pleased with making the decision to enroll both our kids in ACA. The quality of academic programs is phenominal! It is rare to find an institution that focues on christianiy, academic, and athetics are are able to deliver an adequate balance! While the Christian/academic atmosphere was our single most important focus, we are ecstatic to have the music, arts, sports and other extracurricualr activites as a option for our children. Tuition is affordable, school is centrally located, and the staff is second to none.

American Christian Academy has met every expectation that my husband and I have for our daughters education. The teachers and staff are the most caring individuals. Our daughter has really excelled in every aspect since enrollment at ACA. The Headmaster, Dan Carden, has done a wonderful job with moving the school forward.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
