My son is in kindergarten at Faith Christian School. The academic program is excellent and the school provides a safe, nurturing environment. We couldn't be happier. (it is also relatively inexpensive compared to other local private schools).

Two of my children graduated from Faith Christian School and had not only a great academic foundation but also a wonderful foundation in their faith. They made an easy transition from a small private school to Gloucester High.

This school gave my child the educational and spiritual beginning she needed for pre k, 1st and 2nd grade. If we had not moved away, she would still be there! The caring staff is counted in our blessings still today!

We are very pleased with the healthy Christian environment and high academic standard that this school offers. The teachers deal very well with each kid's safety, personal, as well as emotional well-being. I highly recommend this school to parents searching for very good education for their children.

I have two daughters at Faith Christian School. We have been very pleased with the high academic standard & the ability to adjust the curriculum based on a child's needs and/or strengths. Class sizes are small and our children receive lots of individual attention. This school setting is extremely safe and loving and the school is committed to teaching from a Christian perspective. Parental involvement is welcomed and there are many opportunities for parents to volunteer their time in the classroom.

My two boys just began attending here and are already sold on this school. No bullies, just instant acceptance and love. (Last school was a public school). The Abeka curriculum is tailored to each child's needs, and the teachers give 110%. The small class size (6-8) is perfect for one on one work, when needed. Highly recommended. We are just sorry we are only here for one year.

Wow! What can I say. I have one child who attended for 9 years, a recent graduate, and another child who has been there for 3 and has 6 more to go. The education, the discipline and the loving atmosphere is amazing. All the children know each other, play with each other, help other and truly care about each other. I can not say enought about the teachers....awesome!

This is a very caring school with small class sizes. They provide a solid education as well as presenting Christian values. The school presents several plays each year involving all of the children. Can't say enough good about this school.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

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.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
