My child went to this school from preschool tI the 5th grade. Simply said, this is a great school. I love the openest. When I say open, I mean open. Never had any problems. I spent a lot of volunteer time there. The only downside is that not enough parents volunteer. The school is open to new ideas. And the teachers are committed to taking the best care of your child.

My family has been with CFC since 2005. I took them out for 1 year to try public school and needless to say they are back at CFC. The teacher student ratio is great, the teachers actually care, the staff is great. In almost 8 years and 3 kids I have NEVER had an issue. My two oldest children were reading well before the age of 5.

My son has attended CFCA since he was in Pre-K. He's is now in the 4th grade and & am pulling him out because there is an ongoing issue with the administration not addressing bullying & teasing issues involving their non-student after-school attendees AND the teachers.I have had my fill of CFCA & will not recommend it to anyone until they properly deal with these issues.

This is a wonderful school. My son has been here a year and has been doing well. The staff are friendly and actually do well with the kids. I like that they always have activities for the kids and involve parental involvement. I am happy with Children for Christ Academy and would quickly recommend to another parent.

CFCA is an excellent learning institution. My son has been with CFCA since he was 2 years old and will be entering the 4th grade. He has excelled academically, socially and spiritually. Thank you for all you do.

This is a quality school, with excellent instructors, the lower grades have an excellent student teacher ratio but still enough students to allow for friendships and cameraderie..The higher grades tend to have fewer students (3 - 5) but the teachers still do an excellent job making sure the students are social and well rounded.. I have two kids that have attended, and a third that will be entering their prek program this year. I highly reccommend them

My daughter has attended this school since she was 2 years old. She is now five and excelling academically on all levels. This school is truly a great school. From the director on down to the teachers, they are very personable and all have the best interest of the child at heart. I would recommend this school to all parents that want their child to learn and to also be spiritually fed.

My son has attended this school since he was 1, he is now 4. I love the school, I would not change him for nothing in the world unless I really had to. He love the teachers and especially the director, Ms. Thornton. I can say my son has learned alot from his teacher. The staff love the kids and they are very concerned about their well being.

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 student 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.
