The first year my child attended was great; his teacher made learning fun and worked with students' particular ways of learning (visual, tactile, auditory, etc.). My child's second year was horrible. The teacher handed out conduct marks - which can lead to detentions, and in turn a suspension, if they rack up - like candy for *very* inane things (i.e. letting her know someone else could have a turn). She ignored me most of the time when I asked about the specifics behind the multiple conduct marks. Attempts to find a compromise in meetings with teacher and principle (who is the teacher's husband) were unfruitful. This school does not allow in-classroom observation, even if it is requested by a therapist. His teacher did not allow the boys and girls to play together at recess. A VERY legalistic Christian school. Apparently some of the parents agreed with me about the conduct marks but because I was the only one who consistently voiced my concern (and frustration), even though I was civil about it, I was abruptly told to remove my child from the school.
I couldn't agree more with the review that was posted on Feb. 1, 2013! I have 2 children that attend and we have been there since 2011. Even after nearly 3 years I honestly can not come up with a negative thing to say about this school. My children come home happy and full of information each day. They are proud of their school and of what they are learning! The teachers and staff are unbeatable, they genuinely love these kids and they WANT to teach at THIS school! My kids are taught all about and more importantly SHOWN the love of Christ each and every day, what more could I ask for? And just as the other reviewer said, bullying is NOT tolerated, and these kids are EXPECTED to succeed. When my child struggled for a time with a subject and I spoke to the teacher about possibly needing a tutor, she let me know very quickly that no tutor was needed, that SHE would stay after school and work with my child until she fully understood the concept that she was struggling with. How awesome! We will be at Calvary for as long as we absolutely can, this school and it's staff truly are unbeatable and an absolute blessing!
We are so absolutely blessed to have found CCA. From the moment we stepped foot into the school we felt that it was the perfect place for our daughter. Not only is she receiving a wonderful education and learning how to stand proud with Jesus she is able to participate in numerous after school activities-this is huge as many smaller schools can't offer them. Amazing parent communication & involvement, NO bullying, NO students left behind, and most importantly your children are EXPECTED to succeed-therefore they do! Helpful and encouraging staff, administration, teachers---everyone! If you are considering any other school -STOP! Pick CCA. You will NOT regret it! We are having to move in a few months, and I am heartbroken and still unable to find a school I think is any where near the caliber of CCA. Amazing. Just look in the faces of their students, that will speak louder than any words I say!
This school is one of the best in FWB, FL. The teachers are well educated, some with numerous degrees and many years of teaching education. They give your child one on one attention. The teachers care and their goal is to teach your child and make sure that child learns. The Teachers, Principle and staff at CCA are all very knowledgeable, friendly, helpful and enjoy their jobs. The students are well mannered, polite, open & hold doors open for you. And are better acting then most students we have been around There is NO BULLYING going on at this school. No NAME CALLING, ETC. Students here are nice to each other. If you believe in learning about God, while getting a great education in a Christian environment, then Calvary Christain Academy is the school for you.
Excellent School. Very organized and very structure. If you are looking for a place that may provide education with christian base, this is it. My son was there for three years and I was able to see the difference. Quality teaching and the teachers and the staff is concern for every child. Do not hesitate, great school. I wish I could've move this school with us ;)
