We had both of our Children go through Berea and it was a wonderful experience for all of us. They had a great quality Christian based education that will stay with them the rest of their lives. We still have one son in College now at Minnesota Duluth and he is doing great thanks to the education he received at Berea. I cannot say enough about all the teachers and volunteers they had.

Our children have attended Berea since they were in Kindergarten and we have been extremely pleased with their education. I love knowing that my children are learning and studying the Word of God daily! What a blessing! And I thank God that we have a school where each class is taught from a Biblical worldview by wonderful, caring teachers. In addition, the small class sizes and "mentoring" of the older students to the younger students has been a wonderful atmosphere for our children to learn. I love seeing my children grow in wisdom and leadership through their school life. Monthly field trips, strong music program, annual fairs, activities (LEGO robotics, Basketball), and many other things -- we couldn't be happier to be able to give this opportunity in education to our children.

I love our school. The smaller class sizes allow for personal attention. And now this year we start our preschool! I feel blessed to be able to send my children here!

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 teacher 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.

What makes a great teacher? Study after study shows the single most important factor determining the quality of the education a child receives is the quality of his teacher. Here are some characteristics to look for »
