This is a wonderful. As a student coming from a big high school I thought I was going to hate a small little private school. In a nut shell it saved me. If it wasn't for the great support from my family at home and my family at the school I probably wouldn't have graduated at all. Having small classes and all the help you will ever need from the teachers and staff makes for promised great education, and a family as a extra bonus. Love ya all parsons, Cheyenne

As a graduate of PCA, I love this school. Although private education, especially on such a small scale, is not ideal for some, this school caters to and connects with the students. The religious aspect aside, parents can be assured that their children are being taught by teachers with upstanding moral character and the students best wishes sincerely in their hearts. This school was not easy, as the teachers are not afraid to challenge and expect success, but everyone was willing to work tirelessly to make sure no student got overlooked. The high calibur of teacher at this school inspired me to teach. True, the facility is not brand new, and there are not $1500 computers in each class, but PCA offers something that even the richest schools sometimes lack: a quality education. If you are looking for a school where your students best interests are taken into account, and are comfortable with a close knit, family like environment, enroll your child. I promise you will never regret it.

I have loved my experience with Parsons Christian Academy. The small, private school environment is exactly what we want for our children. I love that my children can start and finish their entire education with this "family." I feel the education they are receiving is A+, the sports programs teach that life is more than just winning but giving your best. There is comfort knowing that every member of the staff truly cares about the development of the students, wholly.

My son has attended Parsons for over a year now and has done excellent. The administration and staff are top notch. I would reccomend this school (and have) to anyone. I look forward to my son attending this school until her graduates.

First off, my wife and I can drop our daughter off and know without a doubt that shes in good hands. The staff will do what it takes to get your child on pace. Teachers will come in early, use some of their lunch break, and even stay after school to help any student that might be having a hard time. That's a major component of a small private school, lots of one on one time. My daughter has attended Parsons since her 6th grade year. And this year she became a freshman. I wouldn't change anything. If you are looking for a great education Parsons is your answer.

If you are looking for an amazing school, look no further! Parson's is not only a school but it's a family. Everyone looks out for one another's child and truly cares about your children's education. The principal " Mrs.Grace" has a heart of gold and is a Godly women. You will NOT be disappointed in this school and all it's leaders in it. A+++++

Parsons Christian Academy is a wonderful school academically and spiritually. I have 2 children at the school and both have excelled in the small classroom settings. The teachers and staff care about the students. I am blessed to have found a school that cares about the students the way Parsons does.

I have been very pleased with Parsons. It is an excellent school with excellent teachers. My son started Parsons in the 6th grade and is now a freshman, and has done very well. Parsons provides an excellent learning environment, and the staff goes above and beyond to ensure that each child is getting the education they deserve. I highly recommend Parsons.

We've been with Parsons since my son started up 7th grade. He's a senior this year. I have to say that this school changed my son's life. I don't know if there's any other school in Jax where teachers and the principal would care more about their students, Children benefit daily from education and christian oriented activities that Parsons Academy provides. My special thanks go to Parsons administration. Mrs. Grace spent so much of her personal time counseling my son and helping him with his academics and social growth that I can be proud of him today. I know God brought us to this school years ago for a reason. If I had to go back in time, Parsons would be my only choice. Thanks to everything you all do to make a difference in children's lives. God bless you and your families!

Good school for the most. Needs a new facility though, way too small to accomodate all the kids. However, they do seem to show some partiality to the children that attends the church associated with the school.

PCA has been the answer to our childs spiritual and educational needs that we have been looking for. Our child went to a school for a few months for PreK and there was so much pressure to get answers right she went into a shell and it took months to get her to come out. Ms Christie the K teacher is one of the best and our daughter is in 1st grade now and her 1st progress report was AWSOME! Our child is doing so good and loves to go to school. Mornings are easy b/c she wants to go. It's a great big family. Ms Grace has been so great at helping us prepare our child. I could not imagine our child at any other school. A school that cares what a concept! Join Us... you will not regret it and your child will love it Marie Roberts

My nephew has attended Parsons Christian Academy for the past few years now and he is recieving a fabulous education. The teachers and staff are so wonderful to all of us and treat us like family. He has learned so much and he has also made many friends. The school offers a great support team for everyone and they care about the kids. I would highly recommend this school to anyone that is looking for a quality education for their child.

I have been part of the 'Parson's Family' for almost 7 years now. My daughter was 2 at started at the daycare along with my son who was 5. It has always felt like home. Both of my children now attend Parsons Christian Academy and the difference that this school and the staff there have made in their lives and mine is priceless. Everyone truly cares about the kids and their families and it is an extension of the home. The academics are great and now with teh addition of sports it is pretty much perfection! I would encourage anyone to check this school out if you are looking for a place that will not only enhance your children's brains and bodies but also their spirit!

Parson's Christian Academy has a very strong foundation in the Arlington area. Started by Eileen and David Parsons, PCA is the modern day 'little red school house'. PCA offers a wonderful, well-rounded learning environment for every child where everyone knows their name. Their computer lab is top notch. The teachers are stellar and the Administrative Staff are amazing! If you are looking for an unbelievable, reasonably priced, private education experience for your child with a very home-town, family atmosphere, then look no further! Parson's is the place you have been looking for! Give them a call today! You will be glad you did. :) ...Michaela's Dad

My 2 granddaughters go to this school and I have never seen such a positive change in a child's grades and attitude toward school. They love the school and are both striving to be honor students. This did not happen in public school as they were unmotivated and generally ignored. Thank you parsons I only hope you will go thru the 12 grade when they are at that age.
