SMCA is an amazing school with a structured, loving, bright environment. This school is everything I want for my child, plus some! My child has had excellent experiences and has learned and matured above and beyond what we expected. Socially SMCA provides endless opportunities for their students. The school is well rounded and the staff and faculty are great. The entire aura of SMCA is refreshing. The students carry themselves with such class, confidence, happiness and intelligence, radiating the quality of the school. We love it here!

We too transferred to SMCA this year and are extremely thrilled so far. The education that my children are getting is exemplary and the teachers care - truly care. They treat each student as an individual even with the amount of students in the school. Both my children have blossomed in ways that I could only pray for - including making many new friends. The atmosphere in the school is one of encouragement and the love of Christ is shown through the administration and faculty. We did not want to make a change but are SO happy that we did. I would recommend this school to anyone looking for a good education in a Christ-centered environment.

We transferred to SMCA this year and have been very impressed with the entire staff's willingness to work through the transition alongside of us. They listened to our input about our individual children, particularly one who was having a more difficulty transitioning. I have children in elementary and secondary levels. I have seen a major change in attitudes about school with more than one of my children. They love their new school. They are making friends. They actually feel their teachers like them! Best decision we ever made for our children.

Fantastic school! Turned my child from a depressed, lonely child into a happy child with lots of friends and involved in many activities all of this with a great Christian world-view curriculum and teachers who care about the children as if they were their own!

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.
