As a new parent, I can honestly say this school has a real welcome center. My girls were welcomed with open arms. Right away they signed up for amazing new classes, were welcomed into new clubs and on sports teams. There was no feeling of not being part of an "in crowd" and no clicks to have to deal with. They treat their students equally and everyone has the chance to succeed. Please consider Freedom if you are looking for a true Christian education.

Freedom Christian Academy is the perfect school! Our daughter was going into middle school this year and we debated public verses private. We talked with students and staff members at both types of schools and came to the decision that she would benefit best in a Christian based school. Once decided, we then started our search. Freedom had been highly recommended by other parents and students alike. Within seconds of entering the school we knew that this was our school of choice. This has been reconfirmed as the right decision on a daily basis. Our daughter came home from her first day of school saying, "I love my new school!" and two months later "What's a bigger word for love because that is how I feel about my school!" As a sixth grader she has had the opportunity to participate on athletic teams,in the band, in chorus, in the Christmas play with a solo part, work with the art club, all while maintaining a straight "A" average. The teachers teach information and not tactics to pass an EOG test. She can discuss any subject with attention to facts and detail and has a beautiful attitude towards Christian values all thanks to the wonderful staff and faculty at Freedom.

I love Freedom Christian Academy! This is my 4th year teaching at FCA and I have been blessed to be a part of school that truly believes in putting God first and excellence in academics. Not only am I a teacher, but I am also a parent. I have one daughter in the academy and one in preschool. They love it also! It is a blessing to know that they have Godly, well qualified teachers taking care of them each day. There is a strong sense of community and family in our building which you do not find everywhere. After working over 10 years in public school, I can tell you that Freedom Christian Academy is the best of the best!

We chose to attend Freedom Christian Academy instead of the public middle school and we love it. Best decision we could have made. The principal and the teachers love all the children in this school! The education he is receiving is top notch! He is not missing a thing that he would have been taught at the public school! He plays in the band, has participated in the school play, he plays sports (which most people think you don't get in private school). The level of parent involvement is amazing. All in all, we love this school! We love the leadership, the teachers, the cafeteria ladies...even the custodial staff! Every person employed here has a positive influence on the children here. They love them and they want to make sure they succeed!

Our school was Freedom Christian Academy. Our daughter graduated from FCA last year. The first graduating class! Her first semester in college was a true testimony that she was given the BEST EDUCATION to prepare her for her college classes. She had made well enough on her AP exam to allow her to start in a junior level biology class. She was the only freshman in the class and I had concerns. She assured me that she was prepared, and she was. Her classes were Molecular Genetics, Chemistry, Statistic, Global Perspectives in scripture, PE, Gateway(Freshman class). A total of 17 credits and a GPA of 4.0. Due to her hard work and dedicated teachers and most of all the Grace of God she did it. I am so thankful that God lead us to Freedom Christian Academy where the will of God is present and they are staffed with AWESOME teachers.Thank you FCA!

I enrolled my son who is a normal child but is speech delayed in the K2 preschool. I was told this was an environment for kids who had never been away from home before. It was a nightmare from the beginning. We were given the incorrect date for school to start, we were given the wrong name of his teacher and when he actually started class I got multiple calls because he would not sit for carpet time (day 1) and was using sign language instead of talking. They made me come get him the first day- I attempted to talk to his teacher multiple times but she would not call me back. The second day, I called to check on him and was told he was doing better and adjusting. Two hours later I got a call from the head of pre school saying they no longer wanted my child in their class and this was after only 8 hours contact time with him total. When I went to pick him up his teacher and the preschool director were gone. All of the supplies we bought were no where to be found and the lady there told me my son was "non communicative" and that Freedom "tried to do you a favor" but it didn't work. If you don't have a 100% "normal" kid, this is NOT a good environment. Christian in name only.

My family have been under the leadership of the principal of Freedom since my two daughters were little (preschool age). All teachers show Christian values inside the classroom as well as outside of the classroom. The curriculum is extremely rigorous and challenging to the students. The atmosphere is family & God-oriented. I strongly recommend Freedom Christian Academy to any family who is looking for a Christ-centered, teacher friendly, challenging curriculum, and open-door policy to parents.

My daughter has been at Freedom Christian for two years now. We are military, and she has been at four different schools. This one is, by far, the very best of the best. Her teachers have taken extra time to make sure that she is getting the best education possible, and she feels at home here. It is a family atmosphere, and you can feel God's presence the instant you step into the building. The administration goes out of its way to be available to all families. I would not put my daughter in any other school. She loves Freedom, and so do we!

As a parent of a child with special needs, I have found that private schools in general are not usually welcoming to "differences". But at Freedom Christian Academy, my son learns that he is fearfully and wonderfully made by God and is treated that way. The administration and teachers are flexible to meet his needs and push him in a loving and encouraging manner so he can reach his full potential. Parents and teachers truly are a team. Students at Freedom are trained to value all people, every race, every denomination and it shows in the way that even high school students love on my 5 year old. It is truly a family atmosphere at Freedom. It is nice to know so many people are looking out for your children.

My granddaughter has been at Freedom Christian Academy since she was old enough to attend. I visited many area Christian schools and found Freedom to be above the rest both in their academics, staff, and their Christian values. As soon as you enter their front doors a sense of welcome and kindness greats you in the form of friendly personal. Warm smiles and helpfulness are the order of the day. My granddaughter was cared for with the up most attention and afforded a top notch academic learning environment. Everyone from Mrs. Hampton who is in charge of environmental sanitation to Mrs. Dayton the Head of School is both willing and accommodating ensuring excellence and Christ honoring attitudes. I hope my granddaughter will eventually graduate from Freedom and I so look forward to all God has for her as she matures and learns under the stewardship of teachers and staff at Freedom. If you have not secured your place at Freedom you had better hurry, they are filling up fast!!! I already have my spot reserved.

Our family has been with FCA since it opened its doors. What a God send! Knowing my son is taught in a God centered environment where he grows spiritually as well as academically, is a blessing I cannot put into words. The teachers and administrators are excellent on all levels. They claim to be raising leaders of excellence, wisdom and Christian faith. From my point of view, they are doing just that! My son loves FCA and we're sticking with them for our schooling needs!

Our school is four years old. The leadership here is completely Christ centered. Their vision was to have an accredited school within the first 4 years... Success! The atmosphere shows Christ as the center. Patriotism is vividly shown through murals and scripture. Our school has a great sense of "family." You matter and so do your children. It's not about who you are or what you do. It's about the fact that you have been created by God and that Jesus loves you. We have high expectations and seek excellence in all. Excellence in your studies and your character are urged. Don't let the age if the school fool you. There are years of experience by the administration and by the teachers. Your child is our priority. Please come and visit any time! Check out our website too! fcapatriots.org

This is our 2nd year at FCA and we love it!! I know my children are learning about God first through the teachers, administration, and other students and then academics (which the teachers are fantastic). They continue to grow and add more programs each time. Love it!!!!

I feel blessed to have found this school when we found out we were moving here in 2011. Both of my children (one in elementary, one in middle) are receiving a rigorous academic education paired with the love and knowledge of Christ.

Freedom Christian Academy is a wonderful school.The principal is a natural born leader. This school is the best part of our recent move to the area. My children tell me it is their favorite school (they have gone to 4). The campus is extraordinary, but Godly teachers and administation is what make this school a success. Academics are top notch and the teachers are dedicated. I wouldn't send my children anywhere else.
