I wouldn't take my son anywhere else. This school is not a "religious" school but a school that bases their teaching using Christian values. I love each and every teacher there. They are so dedicated to each child. They expect parents to be parents and encourage involvement in any aspect of learning. For some, cost may be an issue but for less than a car payment or boat payment you can get quality education in a loving, christian environment for your child. Thinking of it that way changed the value I place on my son's education. We made adjustments to our lifestyle to make it work.

Cook Inlet has been a great school for our children. Chuck, Holly and Paul have attended since preschool. My oldest son graduated in 2007. Miss Becky is the best preschool teacher. The Christ-centered education has been a blessing to our family and has truly enriched each one of our children.

I love the preschool program at this school. The teacher is fabulous and truly loves the children who enter her classroom. While the tuition might be prohibitive to some prospective families, the teachers love their students and I love that there are 'Christian values' emphasized...not doctrine!

My family has been involved with Cook Inlet Academy since 1991. I am thankful for strong academics and teachers who truly have a passion for loving our children.

Cook Inlet Academy is a good Christian school.While it is not for everyone, it is a safe environment affording small class sizes for more individual attention, and offering an education from God's point of view. CIA has offered quality Christian education for years. I am an alumni, and currently have a daughter in Kindergarten there. I have two older children also who had the same kindergarten teacher quite a few years ago. The teachers care about the kids. No one is perfect, and everyone needs improvement, but CIA is striving to educate children not only in academics, but also in their hearts.

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.
