the best school you could send your child to without your child coming home saying mama something happened at school today and my daughter says she loved it when she went there and she love the way they teached her there

ABC Christian Academy/Preschool is an excellent Christian school with caring teachers and administrators that want to see students succeed. My children attended the school and as a result they have a strong biblical and academic foundation. I like the small class sizes. Parental involvement is mandatory because the school promotes a partnership between the parents and the school. The Abeka curriculum is well-rounded and biblically based. ABC has a great music program. The school reaches out to the community by providing free services such as physicals, school supplies, and clothes. Fundraisers help defray expenses. Students and staff are rewarded for achieving goals. My experience has been positive and I recommend the school to anyone that wants a quality education for his or her child.

ABC Christian Academy is a great school. The new administration is refreshing, optimistic, and taking the school to the next level. The teachers want the students to succeed. My child loves her teacher. Parents are encouraged to get involved in their childs education.

My nephew attends this school and his mom enrolled him by my recommendation. My daughter was a student in 2000 and the teacher was educated, caring and was genuinely concerned about the students' learning. The faculty they have now leaves so much to be desired, the poorest role models you'll ever meet. The problem is, it's not the same school it used to be. They place more emphasis on raising money than educating the kids. I don't know what went wrong, Pastor Diamond is such an astute business man to allow the school to be run so poorly. My nephew will be going to Trinity next year for fourth grade for sure. At least the teachers will use proper grammar when talking to the kids.

This school is horrible. They don'e educate the children as they should for the prices they charge. I wouldn't recommend this school to anyone.

ABC Christian Academy is an excellent school. The leadership is outstanding. They encourage parent involvement and provide necessary information to the parents in a timely manner. They use the ABEKA Curriculum, which is very excellent as well.

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.
