We have had two children in the school now for five years. Overall, I have been very pleased with the quality of the education, the environment, and the teachers. The school was able to set up a computer lab this year to allow the students to begin to learn skills such as typing and online courses. If you're considering a private school, I would highly encourage you to stop by and speak with the principal and the teachers.

I am extremely disappointed with the structure of my daughter's classroom. It is very chaotic. I agree with one of the reviews left by a parent, please before enrolling your child sit in on a class. There are some great teachers, unfortunately my daughter doesn't have one of the great teachers. I am a very involved parent and sadly this year I'm not. I can't handle the rude, uncaring presence of her teacher.

My daughter has attended this school for two years and will be attending again this year. Wonderful atmosphere where teachers and leadership love and care for the students and is very clearly a Christian school. I love that the kids get to play outside and have PE, Music and Art. Children are taught not just academics but how to build their character and treat others.

We were utterly and completely disappointed with this school. Chaotic classroom environment, inept teaching staff and incompetent administrator. Strongly recommend sitting in on a class before enrolling children. Christian in name only.

My child has been attending FCA for 8 years. I am very pleased with the small classrooms, teacher assistance and administrative support. I feel my child has had the opportunity to be a kid in a culture that doesn't see much of that these days. My only issue with the school is the fact that my child feels ridiculed by the other students for our families political views. We have used this as a teaching lesson to accept and allow others views. Perhaps in the end it will help our child to be open with people of all religions and points of view.

I expect only the best from FCA. A private school that is an excellent place for my child to learn above and beyond the FL public school system. Such nurturing and loving teachers

I had a grandaughter in FCA for five years who moved North a few months ago. Her parents had some trepedation on how she would place in public achievement scores in her new school. Her entrance scores were outstanding and she is far ahead of her 8th grade peers. I give all the credit to the faculty of FCA.

This is a small, Christian private school. The atmosphere is loving and nurturing. The staff is excellent and well trained. The negatives would be the location, lack of security, cafeteria and library. But, the school is relocating or building, so those issues should be resolved soon!

FCA is an incredible school where our children receive an excellent education in a christian environment. The teachers truly care about each and every student and strive for excellence in the classroom. This is a first class school!

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.
