This school has truly been a blessing for me and my family. Both of y children attend, kindergarten and daycare, and they LOVE it. I have watched by children blossom both academically and spiritually since they enrolled. The staff is amazing and the parent involvement is wonderful. FCCA is like a family and I am honored to be a part of it!!

One of the best schools, public or private, you can attend. Small class size (about 12-15 per class),amazing teachers. The middle school puts on a musical each year that includes every student - all three middle school teachers dedicate many unpaid hours to making this event happen. Many of the graduates move on to the Roosevelt School of Performing Arts or to University Hi. A great place for motivated students and involved parents.

When God led us to this school, I had enough of the publec school system in Fresno! Lying parents, school activities that the parents did not show respect & so on! How can we expect our children to be responsible adults if we don't model the behavior? This school & the teachers as well as the pastor are the models I want for my children to thrive and grow in Christ. This is worth the sacrifice to be sure our children become all they can be. They learn more that the 3 R's- They receive individual attention, and are consistently encouraged and loved! What school would let our children be loved and nurtured? There are no bullies! No bad words! No ugliness that public schools have to allow when it is not an environment our children need! We pray for the children and demonstrate responsible behavior for ourselves & others!

FCCA has been a great experience for our family. The teachers and staff are very dedicated to helping the students achieve their best. Our daughter has blossomed in the 2 years she has been there.

I love FCCA. My daughter is now in the 7th grade and has been enrolled there since the third grade. All the teachers she has had up to now have been wonderful. Their standards to education as a private school are up there, which I like. FCCA is like a family, the children, teachers and staff are all very close and personal. I highly recommend FCCA.

Our children attended this school from 1996-2007. Our last having completed through the 3rd grade at First Church CHristian Academy. The staff is incredible, teach with the A Beka curriculum, and have high religious values. We have always felt that the early education years are extremely important to begin the childs path to success and this school certainly fits that need.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

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.
