Small but mighty! My daughters are flourishing - beyond where their peers are in local public schools... learning the bible is an added bonus! Tuition is resonable and totally worth it. The staff is amazing - down to earth with the students' interests at heart - not like public school where they are focusing on state tests and reports. Extremely happy with our choice in PBCA!

The changes that have been made here the past two years have been fantastic! The smaller size and different format, at first a question, has become a true benefit and blessing. Our children are growing so much spiritually, academically, emotionally and socially.

My kids attend this school now in K4. Both can read, know the alphabet and can count past 100. Both are considered somewhat advanced for their age, 3 and 4. While this school does place a very high emphasis on the Bible, that is only to be expected in a Christian school. The curriculum used is quite rigorous, but parents need to be involved to reinforce the lessons. No school magically transforms a kid into a great student. It takes a committed teacher, a motivated child, and involved and supportive parents. This school has all the basic programs and activities of public school, but with small class sizes, and without the anti-Christian philosophy and attitude of public school. You should give this school consideration if you are serious about raising children with a solid Biblical worldview and are prepared to invest of yourself in their education.

This is a great school for your kids if you stress teaching the bible more than a normal education. My son is going on two years there now. He started in pre-K and is now in Kindergarten. My son can't count to twenty, but he learns a new bible song every day. He can't read, but he can learn a bible verse everyday. The only way that he learned his ABC's is by the Leap Frog DVD I bought. The school sure didn't teach him that. This is more of a church than a school. majority of families involved there are missionary families. I've heard parents make comments like, 'My son failed his test. That's OK though, It's God's will.' Do yourself a favor. Keep you're child far from 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.

Oops! We currently do not have any teacher information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.

What makes a great teacher? Study after study shows the single most important factor determining the quality of the education a child receives is the quality of his teacher. Here are some characteristics to look for »
