As a parent I think you should know the Principal leadership has a firm understanding of the development of grades K-12 and is able to direct their very qualified staff to help every student to have academic and social success. My sons have had great academic and positive personal gains while attending Light of The World Christian Academy and we highly recommend you enroll your child or children today.

Excellent Christian Educational Experience! I attended LOTWCA 17 years ago and currently have nieces and nephews attending. Their foundation is God and Phonetics focusing on the total child. It s a smaller school. So, the student teacher ratio is great. Allowing the teachers great opportunity to really focus in on what each student s needs. I was there when the school first opened, and to see that it s still thriving is wonderful. The teachers really care about each student, and desires the best for their futures. LOTWCAS have stayed true to its core values. Each morning when I was there, we began with Bible class pledging allegiance to the American Flag, Christian Flag, and Bible. I still hold the Bible as "a light unto my path, I will hide His words in my heart that I might not sin against God" Yes, I still remember that, and all of the worship songs as well LOTWCA is worth checking out. They really help build a strong foundation for their students.

My boys are now in High School, but during their early elementary education years I enrolled them here at Light of the World for a while. I have to say that now that this part of their learning years has been said and done, I was truly blessed by this experience. Mrs. Bryant was always eager to impart into the kids as were all the teachers back then. I loved the student to teacher ratio which allowed for more of a customized one on one learning environment. Here, my boys truly excelled. If I had it to do all over again I would not have changed a thing. We moved away and that was the reason we pulled our kids out back then. It is nice to see that the school is still in business and also nice to be able to post feedback. Blessings, Cassandra

I can not and will not recommend this school to any parent that cares about there child's education. The teachers are not qualified, books are photo copied, and lunch is a joke. Please take the time to get all the information you need before wasting time and money on tnis school .

If you are looking for a great Christian school with emphasis on academic excellence, this school is for you! The students day is started with bible lessons which gets them ready for the day. The teachers are wonderful, they take the time to make sure each child is academically prepared and not left behind. The teacher/student ratio is well below the public school. The tuition is very reasonable and there is open enrollment. My child has performed very well at this school and I very pleased with the principle and instructors. Praise God for this school! Sincerely, a very satisfied parent.

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.
