Excel Christian has a nice daycare. Most of the teachers take good care if the kids. However, I have had some issues with the newer inexperienced teachers not watching the kids as good as expected. I will say that every time I addressed the issues with the director, the issue was taken care of and resolved in a timely manner. I would still recommend this daycare

My children have been here for 4 years now and every year it gets better. The school is expanding and adding more each year. My son has some reading issues and he gets the extra attention he needs. My daughter has just moved out of preschool and I am amazed at what she learned. The VPK and wrap around program were wonderful. We are looking forward to another great year!

Both of my boys have been going to Excel for 2 years now. I have one child in Ms. Joyce's class who is 3 years old and he loves it. Ms. Joyce pays a lot of attention to him and the things he has learned at 3 are amazing! My other child is in Ms. Phillips Kindergarden class. He is writing in cursive, knows how to add and subtract, and can read at an outstanding level! I recommend Excel to anyone that wants to give their children an excellent education.

Every day when I pick up my children they have lots of wonderful things to say about their day!!! The middle school teachers are wonderful as well as the lower grades.

This is the first year for our son, and I thank God every day for the blessing this school is. Our son has grown exceptionally well in God's love and care. His education is top notch and we are so thankful to get him out of public school and into a school where the Bible is the truth, and educational teaching strives for excellent, not teaching to the lowest common denominator. If you are seeking a superb Christian based education where the Word is taught everyday and in every way, please consider this fine school. It is just AWESOME ;)

My son has been going to Excel since before he was two when it was Lake Wire Christian Academy. When they moved my daughter started going as a 1 year old. My son is now in 2nd grade and my daughter is in Kindergarten. I love this school and can't imagine my children going elsewhere. They have learned so much and are well above average. The teachers and staff are above all else when it comes to the well fair of all children. Thank you Excel for helping and teaching my children morals and values and giving them a good education that will help them for the rest of their lives.

My daughter has been at Excel for 4 months. She has grown academically and socially by leaps and bounds. She was in another program before and didn't do as well. Excel's teachers are strict but are so loving toward the kids. My daughter is a new child since attending. I would highly recommend this school. The principal is also an amazing leader.

Excel christian is in my opinon the best school around! They have given my children a wonderful education, and taught them wonderful christian values. Every staff member always greets you with a smile! When I need to talk to a teacher at any time they are always willing to listen and care. Thank you Excel for making my children feel special!

We have been very happy with this school. We thought it would be a good idea to expose our daughter to a public school but we couldn't have been any more wrong. She is now back at this school and can't wait to go each day. I think that says alot.

We have found Excel to be an excellent alternative to public school. Our children have done very well so far in their programs. Our oldest has some learning difficulties, but the teachers have gone out of their way to help out. This past year his test scores were well above average. I feel their efforts contributed greatly to that. We would recommend Excel Christian Academy to anyone wanting their child taught in a faith based school.

Formaly lakewire Excel christian school is a winner! Teachers really care, My child has been attending for 2 years now, and loves it. They use the beka cuuriculium and is well ahead of the public schools. They teach the children great values, and make each child feel special and always welcomed!

About this school

Excel Offers VPK for 4 year old students. That is 4 hours a day paid by the state. If needed the remaining part of the day is covered by parents for a reduced rate. There are music lessons and dance classes offered after school. We offer a great summer program open to both our own students and students from surrounding public schools. The summer program includes arts and crafts, field trips, bible lessons and tons of fun.
