I just found this website and read the lat 2 posts and to say the least I was extremely disgusted. I spent my 6th grade year till my senior year at Christian Academy and at the time I was very happy with the choice my parents made in sending me there. Then after I graduated from college I started going back to visit and did my student teaching there. You will not find a better PRINCIPAL or a better LEARNING environment around. If anything goes on throughout the school it is dealt with to the best of the ability of everyone overseeing the school. Both of my parents were very involved with the school and I was never on Deans list but did make honor roll two times. The school has accreditation and teachers that are certified in those areas. In spending time at a public school and CA I would say your child will get the most out of CA. If your child is involved in sports, CA offers Boys Soccer and Girls Volleyball in the fall, Guys and Girls Basketball as well as cheerleading in the winter and then in the spring they have Track & Field, Baseball and Girls Soccer that they compete against other small Christian schools and MSHSAA schools. Two thumbs up all around for Christian Academy.
This is my son's first year at this school, and overall it has been a terrible experience. The school allows for some of the older kids to bully the younger kids and the principle Mrs. Payne does nothing about it. Needless to say, this will be my son's first and only year here. Not a good enviroment conducive for learnig.
The school is small and therefore has 9 teachers or staff-that Have kids ,siblings and church members that are students.. The School tends to show LOTS of favoritism towards Their kids,siblings and church ties or past alumni children Behavior that is against school rules are tolerated if you are a child or a sibling of A teacher, administrative worker, or cafeteria worker and ironically their kids always make the deans list or honor roll. They have one high-school student That says whatever she wants to any of the students just because her mom Is heavily involved in the school.
Christian Academy is a great school. I think everyone should go to Christian Academy the students and staff are very kind. I am a student there and have been attending Christian Academy since i was in pre-school. Now i am in Junior High, I love that the classes are not big so you get more one one one time with the teacher. The teachers are always willing to help you, we also have chapel everyday, it brings us closer to God. We have have a great time in chapel, and when you are a senior you get a senior spotlight, that is when we learn more about the senior before they leave for college. Then each class is very close but always ready to open up for new students. Then last but not least the sports we have basketball, soccer, baseball, cheerleading, and track. It is now basketball season at Christian Academy and we just won conference and the basketball team is going to the championships. YAY! We have very good teams for example out of thirteen games our boys basketball team has won eleven. So come to Christian Academy, all you have to do is visit and you will fall in love, just like i did.
My son has attended CA since he was 6 weeks old. He has been very well educated and happy.
Christin Academy of Greater St. Louis is a great school that offers a strong curriculum for the students and a caring environment that supports each child's development through Christian teaching.
The Christian Academy is a wonderful school with challenging academics and good extra curricular programs. The faculty and staff care about the students not just with their academics, but also with how they are doing spiritually, socially. Truly helping the students to be of value to all they come in contact. The student body cares for each other more so then at any other school we have been associated with. It is a good place to be.
I absolutely love the Christian Academy. I have two students that attend. I have found the faculty to be very competent and dedicated to the students. The curriculum is very challenging. The emphasis on my children's spiritual life has helped us to continue at school what we are trying to do at home. They have both learned to 'walk the walk' 24/7 and not just on Sunday. The extra curricular activites have given my children a chance to participate in several avenues they might not have otherwise had the chance to do.
I am a parent that has two students enrolled in CA. I am NOT impressed with the teachers. However, they do have a great Principal that really cares about the students.
My daughter and son both attend CA. This is their first year. We are very impressed with the academic excellence, the caring friendly atmosphere throughout the school - administrators, teachers, students, and parents. It is an amazing school and their extra curricular activies have been really outstanding- chorus, band, and their athletics have been totally awesome. We drive 35 miles to the school, but it is the best school any of the children have ever attended (8 different schools between our 3 children).
I have two children at the Christian Academy. They have both been at the school since KG. I am extremely pleased with the quality of education and the care the faculty and staff give to the students. They have a love for Christ and want to ensure each child receives a quality education with God at the center. I can not imagine my children anywhere else.
My daughter has been a student at CA since kindergarten. She is now in the fifth grade. The curriculum is challenging as well as Christian based. The student population is extremely diverse and the students get along well. Although my child is Catholic by faith, we have no qualms with the school's religious philosophy. As an educator, I am pleased with the work that is being done in this school.
As someone who has worked at CA for four years, I can tell you that nowhere have I seen a finer environment for children. The CA family truly cares for its children, be they pre-K or High School Seniors, be they black or white. I'm very happy also to be a parent of a preschool student at CA - I'm very pleased with the love and care my son receives!
