My son has attended this school since Pre-K. The teachers are amazing, the school staff is great and the principal is so caring. The tuition fees are the most reasonable I've ever seen, and believe me I did my research. You will get more than your monies worth at this school.

Don't listen to any of the negative comments Bay Ridge Christian Academy is an amazing school! The teacher's are very considerate and understanding and will help with anything that is bugging you. The learning curriculum is very good and up-to-date. The children there are not bad at all, and staff children are treated the same as the rest of the kids. I've gone to Bay Ridge Christian Academy since the 2nd grade and I will stay till 8th.

I'am well pleased with this Academy. My "only" child have been in this school, since Pre-K . This school is doing an outstanding job, with the "spiritual" & "academic" growth. This is my 1st rating for this Academy ,because I'am so downcast about "some" of the negative and untruthful comments. Do you actually believed I would put my beloved in a school that will endanger my " only '' child , out of the question!!! . What I have notice, as a parent through out the years is , "some" parents because they pay a tuition , they feel as if they don't have to respect and follow the school policy's . My child is soon to be a senior & I 'am still elated :)

This school is doing an incredibly good job with both the teaching and spiritual growth of the children. There are separate teachers for each subject in the middle school. This is a great advantage because the students and parents are working with teachers in their content speciality. The best part is that the school is the students, they were all accommodating to the new child.

I am so very pleased wtih this school. I especially like that there are several teachers in the middle school for each grade, teaching in their content area. The science and math teachers are excellent and testing for all subjects is rigorous. In addition the teachers provide extra assistance for weaker students. After school is available for special kids. The students and teachers were wonderful and helped my child to adjust as the new girl in the middle school.

My children have been in this school for 4 years, going on 5 with the new year coming up. This past year was very challenging. The math curriculum is not up to par. I would have to reteach my children the lesson when they got home. In regards to other concerns, if you bring it up, they get very defensive. Nothing you say or do will work. They will refuse to discuss the matter with you.

This is a wonderful school, but more Extracurricular activities should be implemented, also they need to challenge the children a little more Academically. Other than that the staff is warm and very attentive. The princible is great and really cares. Facilities are clean, I am pleased with the overall experience, and the christian education my child is receiving.

I have been extremely please with both the academic learning and spiritual growth both of my children have had the benefit to attain from Bay Ridge Christian Academy. The principals of the school are very "hands-on" with the development of their staff. I have found that my concerns have always been responded to in a professional manner. I find my child feels so comfortable with her teachers and friends that it feels like a small family. The class size ratio is perfectly conducive to effective teaching and learning. We are looking forward to the new building for the high school.

The staff children get away with everything at Bayridge. The staff shows no consideration towards the parents. The school wants you to drop of your child at the door and run away as fast as you can. Parents are not allowed in the school. Out of fear of what you may see taking place with your child. Children are unattended often. Making accidents common yet there is no nurse on site. Every staff member has deaf ears to the parents concerns. I wish I knew then what I know because I would have NEVER put my child in this horrible school. I am looking forward to June.

Everyday you see & hear parents complaining about BRCA, kids acting out of control, staff with long faces and sometimes upset. Each year the classes become smaller & smaller. Good families walk away from BRCA because staff members' children run the school. Plus, long time staff members are parting ways also. I do not understand how this could not alarm the administration. Teachers are no longer passionate about teaching the children, as they seem overwhelmed with worries. Children are overwhelmed with negativity and fear. BRCA has become a disgraceful place for children to learn while in a basement. BRCA short changes children and parents. Children are not being offered a third of what is being offered in other private schools. Parents are simply not getting their moneys worth. Staff member s children intimidate and bully the non-staff member children which shows a lack of respect for the safety and well being of other people s children. Some teachers fail to communicate effectively with the parents and are not careful about venting their frustrations around the kids. Children are young but are able to hear and pickup negative energy. Lastly, the administration is simply inept!

The teachers and the administration want the best for each individual child. They have treated my children as if they are their very own. These teachers and administration serve with a heart of humility, compassion and love -- always pushing their students to the best of their potential. My oldest child graduated with a strong academic foundation; as a result, is performing well in high school. I continue to thank B.R.C.A. for their top notch education and outstanding dedication to excellence in the spiritual, emotional and academic well-being of all their students.

BRCA is a wonderful school with a strong academic and spiritual platform. The administration and teachers care and nurture my son. He enjoys going to school and is an A+ performer. Many thanks to the BRCA team that truly care about each and every student. I pray that the Lord will enlarge the BRCA territory in the near future so that my son could attend their high school.

My two children attend Bay Ridge Christian Academy. I have so many wonderful things to say about this school, I do not know where to begin. My children and my family have been truly blessed. Academically, they have excelled above and beyond my expectations. The caring teachers and staff are unconditional in their love and support towards their students. Spiritually, they have received incredible guidance, love, and prayer. This Academy has enhanced their spirit of worship and prayer. My daughters are worshippers and I know that God has placed them here for that reason. I highly recommend this school for anyone with a heart for God as well as academic excellence. You children will receive all this and so much more. Thank you Bay Ridge Christian Academy for the love, support, and excellence you have poured upon my children and my family.

Both my daughter and son attended BRCA. My daughter is now in college and my son is in High School, Thank God and BRCA both are doing well. BRCA is an excellent school, it is God centered, and the teachers really care about the students. I pray that the vision Paster Padilla and administration have for this school may be fulfilled in the near future.

My children attend this school and I have seen first-hand the extraordinary academic development they have acquired. This is all due to the diligent work of the teachers and administration that bring the best education to this school. Above all, the children receive a Christian education. They study the Bible almost everyday. They have great activities for the students. They communicate frequently with the parents. I pray that God would continue to bless this school and that evey vision they have for the future would be fulfilled. As a parent I am very well pleased!

I have been priviledged to have had my four children attend this school. My oldest has begun h.S. and BRCA prepared him well My other daughter continue to attend the school. My am extremely please with the quality of education that they are receiving. There have been positive change and plenty of growth. I don't agree with a previous review which was posted concerning the new administration. I have been extremely pleased with them. Their desire is to establish that home, school connection and they are always willing to hear parents out. Unfortunately, at times parents don't behave appropiately. For the best interest of all students parents must work cooperatively with all administration. I support this school and could not think of having my children in any other school.

My two daughters started in BRCA this past September, and I have been well pleased with both the quality of their education and the extracurricular activities now offered. The administration is clearly focused on providing a Christ-centered education and strive to develop the best in each child. They strongly encourage parent involvement and welcome any suggestions and/or opinions. I would recommend this school without any reservations.

My child went to the school from October of 2002 and I withdrew her enrollment april 2006. There was a change in administration which in my view is incompetent with parent relations. The administration an some teachers don't practice the christian values they preach.

Good School. Small enrollment. Limited activities but makes up in guidance and attention of each child. In the process of building a new building that will include a nursery and a high school.

My daughter attended this school for two years and she loved it as much as they loved her. The teachers are loving and stern with the right balance. The Lord is so proud of this work in progress. The only reason that she had to leave is because it was to far for us to travel.
