Fellowship Christian Academy1

FCA is a terrible school. Sadly I sent my kids there and after a year I pulled them out. Their grades went downhill along with state test scores. The way it is structured makes no sense. They cram several grades into 1 classroom and there is 1 teacher for several grades. If you are a teacher at the school and you have kids who attend the school, they get special treatment over other kids in everything they do at the school. Any contests they have are always won by the kids whose parents or relatives are teachers and administrators at the school. They say they are Christians, but they show no compassion when you as the parent tell the teacher that your child is sick or if you attend a sporting event that goes later than normal in the evening and your child has 10+ pages of homework to do and ask if it could be turned in by the end of the week, the reply you get is sorry but the work needs to be done by the next day. Save your money, you will Thank me later
Incredible atmosphere... family feel. Amazing place to be, privileged to have spent as much time as I have at FCA. The "parent" who wrote the scathing review has no idea what he or she is talking about. Great staff, great community, highly recommended school. Students are very friendly... go and see for yourself!
Worst school you could possibly send your kids to. While it seems the family operated administration has good intentions their system is flawed. The school is a christian school but their alumni are some of the worst citizens in town. I would say 1/10 students who graduate from Fellowship turn out on the right path. Others build up a hatred for religion and cannot stand to get away from anything and everything that has to do with this school and religion. Additionally, students who graduate from this school do not have enough credits and real classes in order to get into a good college. Most graduates attend very private christian colleges which do not care about high school academics. In the last 5 years I would say only 1-2 graduates made it into a real college. Overall, if you want to send your kids to a nice school that is not a public school stay away from Fellowship Christian Academy. The school is family operated with closed minded hypocritical individuals. If you don't believe me, send your kids their and then read this review again 12 months later. Save your money, send them elsewhere.
Actually, my children currently attend F.C.A., and although the school encourages faithful church attendance, church attendance is not a requirement to attend Fellowship Christian Academy. F.C.A., in my opinion, is the BEST private school in town.
This is a Christian school. We expect students to attend a Bible-believing, Bible-preaching church at least two services per week (i.e. Sunday School, Sunday AM, Sunday PM, mid-week service). This requirement for church attendance is to try to reinforce here at our Christian school what they learn at church and at home. Teachers will pass out a monthly Church Attendance Form to be completed by your Pastor, and this form must be turned in by the due date listed at the top of the form. Students who do not meet the church requirements will be required to attend a make-up school day on the second Saturday of the month (i.e. If the church attendance form for September is not complete, then a make-up day will be required on the second Saturday in October.), and will be charged a $20.00 fee to help pay for the staff member who works on that day. Students who repeatedly turn in incomplete church attendance forms are subject to dismissal from school.
