Both my kids are enrolled in CCA, and we are blessed to have such a great school near us. This is by far an excellent facility that prides itself in giving all the students a positive environment for learning and fun. The teachers and staff are supportive caring and good role models. The variety of courses and extracurricular activities are great, theres something for all. The student teacher ratio allows the teachers to get to know each student and support them throughout their learning process, which is why a big school didnt work for us. I can see the difference in my childs overall attitude toward school, and growth in areas they struggled before. Overall this school provides a safe environment, good communication and parent involvement. Do your homework if you are considering changing schools. If your childs learning and God are important for you, I highly recommend CCA. It is a treasure tucked away in North Delaware. Hope this helps give you a better view of the school, as the other reviews are not reality. Thanks.
My child has been a student at Concord Christian for the past several years. The experienced teachers, small classroom sizes, safer environment and better test scores make for a more positive experience in school. My child has benefitted from going to school with students from diverse ethnic and economic backrounds. Also, the school offers a quality academic program with over 90% of the graduates going to college. My child has greatly enjoyed being involved in a sports program where all students that want to play are able to participate. At a large school that is not always the case. The sports teams have been excellent the last several years winning their league many times. Of course as a small school not all types of courses may not be available, but the courses that are offered are high quality and have greatly helped my child academically. There is not a library or nurse, but I can use my local library and teachers do have first aid training. There are some things that Concord Christian does not have, but the excellent faith based education far outweighs the things that are not offered. As parents, we have also enjoyed the small family atmosphere of CCA.
My daughter has been going to this school the last 3years. Next year I'm going to transferr her to a bigger school. In the earlier years everything is the same in terms of learning the ABC and 123. But the fact that there is no libarby, nurse, or even guidence counselor that becomes a real problem in later years. Not to mention diversity on the teaching staff. If the student population is 95% african american why doesn't the staff reflect that. I will say the kids are really loving my daughter has made some really great friends and I know she will miss the a lot when she goes to a new school.
its a terrible school to prepare your child,i dot think its a good place to let your children get a good education that's why i transferred my children to a public school.
I believe Concord Christian is an excellent school academically and spiritually. My goal as a parent is to see my children live for the Lord by teaching them to make the right decisions and in public schools there are too many temptations for them to face. CCA works hand in hand with parents to enforce Godly characteristics and teachings. I have to be honest and say that I do have some concerns about the classes in high school being limited but I do believe my children will be well prepared for college unto graduating from CCA.
This is an alumna rather than a parental review so perhaps it will offer a different perspective. I notice one of the other parental reviews is by a teacher at the school. I graduated overwhelmingly ill prepared for college. By the time my parents realized I was getting a poor education I was about to go into my senior year and did not want to transfer to a new school at that point. The Pace system (if they still use it) is substandard and allows students to get easy grades without applying themselves. Goodness, I practically did nothing my senior year except play video games because I had already completed all my coursework. I'm running out of space so I'll say this: if your child has goals other than being a missionary or pastor's wife, please consider an alternate.
I dont think this school showed kids a true reality.When my children changed to a public school they saw a whole new world.It is okay for a school not to have dances, but not to have fun is a different story. Those are some reasons why i transferred my children. So i have some different thoughts about this school than some other parents do. This school provided a good education for my children. I think public schools in PA do better because they have to prep children for P.S.S.A . This makes them do a lot more work. The children learn more here. The fifth graders switch classes, the have a spanish class, they have a school chorus and singers,and they have library class. Some parents stereotype they think of chester as a bad place because some children are not as bright as others. That is not right.Chester schools are good.
My children have been at Concord Christian Academy for the past 11 years. I am pleased at all they have achieved spiritually, academically and socially at this school. I feel the education they are receiving here is superior to anything this area has to offer.
As a parent of one student who has graduated and two to go, I find the teachers at Concord Christian very dedicated to their students and the Lord. The majority of staff members have been at Concord Christian longer than my children. My children will remain at Concord Christian through graduation, as long as the Lord provides.
