The schook is great and the staff is wonderful except for the principal. I don't feel this principal is right for this school as the former principal was. This one needs to go back to the public system where she came from. She needs to stop focusing on the demographics and the politics and move more forward with the interest of the children and what God wants. She needs to go point blank and period.

Was better before the switch of the principal. Now feels like we are just paying for public and not private. Very disappointed

This is a wonderful school. Excellent programs and caring staff. Students are respectful and learn the word of God. This school has a friendly community environment. We two children one in PK and the other in K. Couldn't be more pleased with this school.

FBCA has been an answer to prayer for my children. They are getting a challenging education with Christian world view. They are scoring a year above their public school counterparts. The school is head and shoulders above any other private Christian school in Saint Charles County. It is the only school with Missouri State Certified teachers, and accredidation from Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI). They have less than 20 students in a class, an excellent facility, wonderful parental involvement, strong administration, commited Christian teachers, and a very solid and challenging curriculum. We would recommend this school to anyone who wants to equip their children academically and spiritually for the 21 century world.

FBCA continues to offer excellent education from a Christian worldview. I have always been pleased with the quality of teachers.

This is a wonderful school!! The principal, teachers, and staff are caring and wonderful with the kids. Great curriculum throughout all subject areas. Wonderful extras too. Computer, art, music programs all very good. All of my kids attend here and I am glad to have them at this school.

This is a great, caring school! The teachers and staff love the kids and teaching. Both of our children have attended here both years. The curriculum is hands on. The kids learn to read by the 2nd half of Pre-K and are more than ready for Kindergarten by the time they graduate.

This school is fantastic! The staff is so caring and nurturing. The class sizes are relatively small which allows the children to really have lots of interaction with the teacher. My daughter attended this school for two years and loved it. By the time she graduated from Pre-K she was reading! I would highly recommend this preschool to anyone.

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.
