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.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

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.

Oops! We currently do not have any teacher information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.

What makes a great teacher? Study after study shows the single most important factor determining the quality of the education a child receives is the quality of his teacher. Here are some characteristics to look for »
