Christian Academy Of Indiana1

I sent my kid here looking for a quality education in a good christian environment. But neither have turned out for us, thus resulting in us making the decision to move to neighboring school. My kid also played a sport but due to the coach encouraging foul language and an improper lifestyle he/she quit. I was proud of my child. The money is not worth it, nor all the temptations that follow.
We love Christian Academy! Not only does our daughter receive a quality Christian education, but has also made some great life-long friends who share a love for Jesus Christ. We're proud of the school's academic, relational, and spiritual values.
I agree with the last review. My daughter went here for a short period of time. The principal told me if I had not found a home church by a certain date that she would not be able to attend the following year. She was also very entitled. It was her way or the highway. She started soccer and the coaches were there every practice having them do push ups for missing goals but no water to hydrate them until I complained. Also there was not a coach in sight the first game. Just high school students monitoring the game. When I asked another parent about this, the coach emailed me and told me that gossiping with other parents would not be tolerated and was not very Christian like. ....hmmmm. This school is all about money and if you are a scholarship family you are treated differently. I pulled my daughter out and she will never be going back. This is a Christian school but most of the faculty do you not behave this way. Christ should be the center of this school not $$$$$$$.
This school is only interested in taking your money and not so much in educating students. The teachers and administrators are quite content to sit by, watching students fail without alerting parents or attempting to help their students succeed. I am a proponent of private school education, but CAI is a waste of money. If you are looking for a quality education for your money, this is not the school for you!
My 6th grader has two hours of homework a night- way too much for the age. My child went to CAI for elementary and enjoyed it and I thought the elementary teachers were great. However, the middle school is a joke- poor teaching, too much homework and no leadership from administrators. The same teachers that teach the 8th graders teach the 6th graders and evidently can't make the distinction between the two. The majority of the work is nothing but busy work. I've been very dissappointed with the lack of flexibility on part of the school. Also, if you pay the tution and don't like the school they stick you with the full bill for the entire year. Not a great way to run a school.
We feel very blessed to have Christian Academy here in southern Indiana. The challenges our children will face in the future as adults are very different than the ones we have today as parents. Christian Academy has prepared our 3 children spiritually, academically and socially, in partnership with us as parents, to be effective disciples for the Kingdom. If you desire Christ centered values and a Biblical worldview in the education of your children, we feel that Christian Academy is THE choice in southern Indiana.
CAI is the most wonderful school. The only drawback being the tuition ($5000.00 + per child). The kids are pushed to excel academically as well as taught responsibility, respect, and self-control. My kids have been there for 4 years and we pray that we will be able to continue until graduation. The teachers and staff are engaging with the students as well as the parents. We are very thankful for the perfect combination on christian teaching and academic excellence.
This school is a wonderful school. It is a safe place for childern to learn and grow. I go to CAI and we are ahead of most schools and we an have excellent reading program. I love this school and I would recommend this school to any Christian Family looking for a good school to go to.
