FCPA is awesome! The staff is wonderful. They genuinely care about our children. The curriculum is challenging and the teachers make sure that the children do not fall behind. Their policy is to keep the parents involved and informed. I have two children enrolled and they are doing exceptionally well. My seventh grader is learning on an ninth grade level and my third grader is on a fourth/fifth grade level compared to the public schools. FCPA has provided a great foundation for my children in both regular academics and biblical academics. My dilemma is I can not find a public school that measures up. My only issue is FCPA is a bit expensive but you get what you pay for and that is excellence.

Incredibly this school excels where others fail. The information the children absorb is incredible. They learn about the bible and everything else. These children are above the rest in all subject matters as a result of the school's commitment not only to provide a christian education, but a secular education. The school is strict and as well it should be, today's child needs the structure to achieve. Lack of structure and disorganization are what public schools offer.

My daughters go attend this school. The education is great & the class sizes are even better. Most Teachers and Parents know each other on a first name basis. They make you feel like family at this school.

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.
