A wonderful school both academically and spiritually! Both of my children have loved their teachers, are challenged academically and are in a very safe environment. Mr.Wade is an amazing principal with many years of experience in the public school system and leads this school well. We wouldn't want our children anywhere else.

Our family has been very pleased with Florida College Academy. My child has attended for almost 3 years and been challenged with the curriculum and has thoroughly enjoyed all sports and activities. The Christian influence is very positive and the kids have an overall well rounded and safe environment. The Principal is an outstanding leader and fosters open communication between teachers, parents and children. I would recommend FCA to any family looking for a school for their child.

Our family loves Florida College Academy! I love the fact that I don't have to worry about the environment at the school. Bible classes are taught daily, and the school encourages reverence, respect, and responsibility in all aspects of life. My children consistently test above grade level in all academic areas. The leadership and faculty at the school are also outstanding.

Florida College Academy is the best private school in the area. The school and staff have done wonders for our son both academically and socially. Everything is so personalized and they treat you like family. We are excited to have both our children attending next year!

We are thrilled with the education our children are receiving at Florida College Academy. The teachers, admin and staff are holding the students to a higher standard - God's word in all aspects of their education. The academic rigor has been welcomed by our 1st grader and our pre-k student is doing very advanced work. Most important to us is the culture of respect for God's Word, others, and the process of learning. Mr. Wade and the faculty are doing excellent work and FCA has been an answered prayer for our family!

My older son has attended this beautiful school since he was a kindergartner , which has been 9 years and my younger one has attended since he was a pre kindergartner, which has been 5 years. Not only our kids love FCA, but also we as parents love FCA too! Their spiritual environment is the best reason as well as their family atmosphere too. The Principal, teachers, and staff are wonderful to work with. We have never hesitated to talk about our concerns to any teachers here. After we drop off our kids at the academy in the morning, we feel so comfortable to leave them in their loving and caring hands. Their 3 Rs , Reverence to God, Respect each other, and Responsibility, are truly working at this school. I know there is no perfect school, but I proudly can say this Florida College Academy would be the best school if I would have to choose one.

FCA has been a wonderful school for our two daughters. We have one in 1st and one in PreK. The teachers are truly interested in the success of your children and go out of their way to make sure they succeed. Mr Wade runs a tight ship and brings many years of public school administration experience as an outstanding leader of the Academy. You won't find a better place for your kids to learn in a Bible based environment with high standards for moral and academic excellence.

There are so many wonderful things about FCA. At FCA, there is structure, encouragement, personal relationships with staff, high academic expectations and, most importantly, a focus on the child's emotional/spiritual growth and potential. My children are not numbers. Every teacher knows my children and our families. The kids all know each other. The leadership at this school is out of this world. In fact, I consider the principle as a personal mentor. The teachers use innovative teaching techniques and parent interaction is woven into assignments. These teachers set our children up for success. FCA has also brought a stronger sense of spirituality to our family. My children know they are loved, not only by their families, teachers, and friends, but by God. Making our educational home at FCA was one of the best parenting decisions we have ever made. The people at FCA are like family. Pre-K children are reading independently before the end of the year. Elementary kids are learning math that I have to look up on Google. I caught my children having an independent discussion about what the story of David and Goliath taught them: never give up and truth always wins.

After we made the decision to place our children at Florida College Academy, FCA, I noticed a few changes in my children when they came home from school in the afternoons. They were happy, lighthearted, and sometimes singing a new song they had learned in chapel that day. My children have truly thrived in every way at FCA. Florida College Academy offers a safe, nurturing place for children while helping them mature and equipping them academically.. The quality of education is superb with devoted and energetic teachers who truly care about each student they serve. Quality teachers and quality education, however, is a direct result of the quality of leadership the principal offers at FCA. He is a man of Christian principles who is devoted to the faculty and children he serves. We consider FCA to be a great blessing.

Florida College Academy is amazing! My son went to public schools from K-5th grade. Through a state scholarship program we were able to send him to FCA last year when he started 6th grade. We immediately noticed a change in his attitude. He was happier and more upbeat after school. He was constantly singing hymns around the house that he had sang at school! I love that FCA has bible classes and prayer in school!!! I also have a daughter who is in Kindergarten at FCA and she loves it just as much as her brother! You will not regret sending your child to FCA!!!

Our children have attended FCA 8 years. We have seen it develop into a strong educational institution with the help of excellent leadership. The tools and technology the teachers have been given provide opportunities for advanced learning. The teachers works tirelessly and selflessly to insure the students get 100% of their efforts. The 3 "R" environment of Reverence, Respect and Responsibility, are seen throughout the entire school, both students and faculty. It is a safe and protective haven for every parent who entrusts their children with this administration. The overall experience is one that is worth every cent of tuition we pay to send our children there!

Our family feels so blessed to be at this school. Great academics in a wonderful caring environment. It means a lot to have our children in a safe and happy school where we know they are loved. Mr.Wade has years of experience as a principal in the public school system and is a true leader for FCA.

We love FCA!!! My husband and I chose FCA over several other options for schools for our three children. This is our third year at FCA. Being an ex-public school teacher gives me a unique opportunity to compare FCA to public schools. Hands down FCA provides a more caring and nurturing environment while maintaining high academic standards. The teachers and support staff are amazing and the Principal is a true leader. Parents are involved and encouraged to participate in their child's education. I highly recommend this school!

FCA is a truly innovative and ever improving school. We currently have two children attending; our oldest started there in 2009 for PreK. They are currently in first and third grade. The teachers and administrators are involved, passionate about teaching, fair and caring. The emphasis is not only on learning, but also growing Godly young men and women. Mr. Wade, the principal, has made it his mission to transform this school and keep it technologically up to date. He maintains very high standards and ensures that all of the students, staff and parents are keeping the 3 R's in their daily life - "Reverence for God, Respect for others and Responsibility for all I do." The morale is very high. This is by far the best decision we have made for our children and it is worth the sacrifices we have to make financially to have them there. We cannot say enough good about the school!

I absolutely love this school!. The teachers and staff are so involved with everything and they make sure you are an active part of your childs education. Mrs. Barclay was my childs kindergarten teacher, and she is the most patient loving teacher I have encountered in a while. My child started this school reading but a little bit of words, now she reads everything, and way above her grade level. I can not say enough good things about this school and how satisfied I am with everything at this school. The principal Mr. Wade is very involved with the kids and cares about each one of their successes as a student. There is also a NO BULLYING policy at this school, and prayer is an everyday part of the enviroment I love it here, and my child will NOT be leaving anytime soon. Mr. Wade

My two children have attended this school for the past 5 years. My daughter started in Pre-K and my son started during 1st grade. This school has been an absolute Godsend as we moved from the public school system after my son spent Kindergarten being told that he was just lazy and immature. Coming to FCA was the best thing for us. The teachers and Administration, including the principal, Mr. Wade are always very supportive and encouraging to the children. This school provides a positive, Christ Centered environment to help me raise my children the right way. Bullying and disrespect are not tolerated but addressed in a straightforward, kind and gentle manner. The school strives to have all students test at least 2 grade levels above their grade in all subject areas. My kids are easily able to complete the work that public school students two or three years older are doing now. I would highly recommend this school to any parent who wants their kids brought up in a positive environment where they can learn to their maximum potential.

It is a private school and my kids love being there. The principal, Mr. Wade, is dedicated and innovative. The teachers value each and every student and promote reverence, respect and responsibility, the 3 Rs of our school. There is a spiritual environment which gives me peace of mind. Each teacher is a Christian and involved in the churches where they attend. We're one big family and my kids are learning and growing in a wholesome atmosphere!

The is the BEST school- the teachers are amazing and my child WANTS to go to school everday. The best part about this school- aside from academics- is the sense of community there.

The teachers are unbelievably dedicated and the administrators are amazing. I felt that my son was really happy for the first time in a long time. He really enjoys going to school. Also, it is a relief not to have to worry about his influences as much. I'm so happy I found this school.

What a great school! My kids feel loved and respected. There are plenty of activities to keep them busy, but no so much as to overwhelm. The principal is great, a real go-getter. It's a great place to educate those you love.

We have three children currently enrolled at FCA (2 in 5th grade and 1 in 8th). We have been very pleased with quality of the curriculum and the bible-based atmosphere the administration and teachers bring to every school day. Our children were homeschooled for most of their education prior to coming to FCA. The transitions was very easy and our children feel safe and loved. We found the sports program to be very well put together, making sure all participants (at any level of knowledge or skill) feel part of the teams and good about their performances. The music and arts programs, have the same level of expertise and positive environment as found in the sports teams and classrooms. As a parent, I am so thankful our children have the opportunity to attend such an encouraging, challenging, spiritual, safe and loving environment every day.
