The staff could use training on being professional and respectful to both parents and students -and that includes the administration. They are extremely arrogant and breed a competitive & negative attitude within student population. They boast of a great music and athletic program - neither exist at the school. Fundraising consists of several 50-50 raffles, of which the principal and staff (which are all part of the same family) often win the main prize. This causes great concern about the Christian values the school claims to have and teach the students.Their website boasts of former, graduated students going to top universities, this is hard to believe since KCA does NOT offer the required classes necessary to get into a college. The school is very self-centered and only concerned about money. They are grossly understaffed (no nurse) and cannot keep consistent, quality teachers. The teachers often speak openly about how unhappy they are at the school - to the students. The building is filthy and ridden with mice! Students have seen them openly running in the bathrooms, classrooms, chapel, & preschool.
The school facility is very poor, it's basically a huge building which they are unable to maintain. There is mold in some of the bathrooms, cold water only, no heating in some of the rooms as they are trying to save $ on gas. There are gas leaks, one can smell them as soon as you entered through the daycare doors. Mice has been seen by some of the students. There are no janitors, teachers are expected to clean their own classrooms.
Kearny Christian Academy is a horrible school they are money hungry they do not care about the students my daughter was in kindergarten and needed speech therapy which they where unable to provide her with they said she was going to have to stay back and repeat kindergarden so i took her out of that school and put her in lincoln school not only did she get the help she needed but she passed and went to first grade! Furthermore when i lost my job and hit a financial struggle I went to the pastor and told them everything i was going threw and wrote them a letter to please let me out of my contract because of the financial struggle i was in not only did they not bother to answer me but then turned around and sued me!!! So much for being a good christian, they are money hungry i would not recommend this school at all.
Absolutely horrible school. The Pastor calls himself a good Christian. They are money hungry and are not in it for the children at all. All they want is money. They don't care about the kids. The school is run down and ugly. They don't offer any sports and you can rest assured they want to get your money and give you nothing in return.
Dont recommend maybe all of the good comments are the teachers working there, but i was a student and dont recommend teachers are mean and unmerciful. Only class i enjoyed was Bible. The school is also ugly inside.
A great christian school for over 28 years. Small class setting relational and academically sound. As with any school you only get out it what you apply yourself to. Light in the extracuricular activities but a very safe and loving enviroment.
KCA is an awesome school!!! Before I came here I did'nt even read the Bible. I learned so much from Mrs. Paul my Bible teacher for my freshman year. I started reading the Bible and learning so much more about God. I was recently saved on Easter 09' & I'm as happy as can be. Most of the students are pretty cool. Theirs not like a popular group or anything. Its so small that everyone knows eachother. We all get along for the most part. KCA also allows us to go out for lunch which is nice. The only thing that sort of dissapointing is the fact we don't have that many clubs :( !
Coming to this school I believed it would be a loving, christian environment. Myself and my parents were extremely dissapointed. Getting there I was greeted with prejudice glares and rude comments, deffinatly NOT a loving 'christian' environment. Very poor education quality, the building is in poor conditions and there are not enough classrooms. Very closed minded, prejudice and simply rude staff. A dissapointment for myself and family. You dont want your children growing up and picking up these closed minded, judgemental habbits.
Even though, there are two grades together in the same class, its a great school. I recommend students to come to the school.
this is a great school with small class sized and with the new '4.0 program' its getting even better
Terrific education,highest standards,small teacher to student ratio; ten stars!
