My son just started here and he loves it and his teachers. We get daily and weekly reports on his progress. I do agree the office staff could be a bit friendlier. When you walk in they kind of look at you like "what do you want" instead of a professional greeting asking how they can help you. Time will tell but so far we are pleased.

The faculty is unprofessional and unqualified. Most of them are certified by ACSI (association of Christian schools) , however they are not certified by the state of Georgia. This is misleading. The office personnel is the most unfriendly I have ever encountered. The administration is incompetent and never admits mistakes. The head of school prides himself on being in management for many years. He was a salesman for a plumbing company, hardly qualifies to run a school. The board is on a need to know basis of the administration and does not truly make any decisions, they just think they do. They are merely puppets of the administration (husband and wife). The standards and discipline are inconsistent from student to student , depending on a person's last name or amount of money contributed to the school. The academics are subpar. If you are looking for faculty and rigirous course work that will challenge your child this is not the place. What you see on the surface is very misleading. The majority of the students are below average . While they stress Christ first, they do not live out the standard they expect from others. The administration is very egotistical. Students are leaving as fast as they are enrolling. When a student withdraws the administration makes no effort to inquire why or take advice on how to better the facilities, faculty, or academics. They are not interested in any advice on how to improve the overall quality of the school. We made the decision to leave on many factors, but the one that influenced our decision the most was the poor quality of education offered at Praise. - a former parent

I didn't see much room for individuality here. There are cliques, favoritism, and not enough individualized attention except for students that are favored or they take an interest in. There isn't enough preparation for beyond high school either.

The reason kids are excelling in the courses at Praise is because the curriculums are really easy, and the teachers are pushovers when it comes to grades. In the high school it's kind of cliquish, while everyone will say they are not (think it's called being "fake"). The people have established relationships, so fitting in becomes difficult; and the favoritism from staff to students really shows. The headmasters don't pay as much attention to helping high-school as they do elementary and some middle school, and there's not an adequate guidance counselor for college help for the juniors and seniors. They're kind, but not prepared. (and also really emotional) If there's a confrontation between a student and a staff member, the staff member's side will be taken regardless of the circumstances (as well as family of staff). Students who should have been expelled were allowed to graduate even after major offenses, while some students have been asked to leave for minor ones. The athletes are treated better than non-athletes when it comes to work and opportunities. Also, only the teachers -not students- are godly people, and that's only some of them.

Not happy with this school. I haven't been impressed with the quality of teaching my child has received. Everyone is nice enough but overall not impressed with academics. Will not be returning.

This is my sons first year at Praise Academy. We came here after pulling my son out of kindergarten from public schools due to conflict of interests and lack of education. Since at praise, my son has excelled in his reading and writing abilities and he loves school! He always brings home his class work from the week so I can see his progress. We are so glad we discovered Praise Academy!



- a parent
This is our 4th year at Praise Academy and we have been extremely happy from day one! Christ center academics, a loving family atmosphere, partnered with extra curricular activities= sucess!



- a teacher
My school is a place where Christ comes first. The administrators truly care about the students, their families, and ALL of the faculty and staff. The teachers show genuine care and compassion for each student. Praise Academy is a WONDERFUL place to work and a wonderful place for a student to receive a quality Christian education.



- a parent
Praising God that we found Praise Academy. This is our 2nd year and we're thrilled to be apart of this loving family oriented organization. WE LOVE OUR SCHOOL!!!



- a parent
Genuine Christian values with a good measure of common sense. Consistency is important - no pretense, just solid education that prepares for life's next phase, with the love of Christ as the backbone. Parents may volunteer as much as they'd like - I have access to "behind the scenes" daily life at Praise and I wouldn't have my kids anywhere else. The HIDDEN JEWEL i n the Atlanta/ West Metro area. We're thankful to have found Praise Academy!
