My children have been attending CCA for two years and this year will be the last. We are paying thousands of dollars a year for a public school common core curriculum in math and language arts, which is definitely NOT BIBLICALLY BASED. We tried to be open minded and give this curriculum a chance. But unfortunately the teachers aren't properly trained in teaching it and the students and parents hate. We have had many tearful homework nights. Why am I paying our hard-earned money for public school with chapel? Complaints from many about the curriculum have fallen on deaf ears. You would think they would listen to the parents who are paying for their children's education and donating to the school!! We will be putting our children in one of the MANY Brevard county Christian schools that do not utilize common core for the 15-16 school year. The school also needs to hold family type activities which focus on school spirit and unity. Also, the school is lacking in communication with parents. Our kids will miss their friends and this school has many wonderfully dedicated teachers. But after much prayer, we have come to the conclusion that this is not the best school for our children.
This is my sons second year at CCA and things were going great until this year when my sons mom and I entered into a custody battle. I am unsure of what she has told the school but they will not let me into the school, the principal refuses to meet with me, refuses to speak to my lawyer, they refuse to let me have lunch with my son and the school refuses to abide by the visitation order impeding my ability to see my son and be a dad and. I have never felt so much disappointment toward a school that does what they want to and refuses to follow the order. The school only contacts his mother if something happens to my son, they refuse to contact me. At this point it's time to take my son out of this school and send him to a school that does not take sides during a custody battle.
This school has been such a wonderful experience for the whole family! Everything I care about, they take very serious and operate in a professional manner. The relationships we have in this school are priceless!
This school has been such a blessing for my family. My two daughters absolutely love the teachers and student's. After being at the school for nearly five years, I really feel like Calvary Chapel Academy is part of my family.
The education I got from Calvary didn't prepare me for middle or high school. The teachers weren't very experienced or encouraging. The Christian education was good, but there are better Christian school in Melbourne.
