After a truly horrific year attending 1st grade in Erie Public Schools, my daughter and I sought out this school for her to attend as our faith is very important to us. From day 1 of her 2nd grade year this year she has been soooo excited and truly happy to go to school each day. She once told me recently in fact that she "hates weekends" because she enjoys being in school so much! I am so thankful for the staff and feel completely blessed, thanks to EFCA. Thank you!

My son attended here from age 3 through age 11 and had a wonderful successful preschool and elementary experience! The teachers are unbelievably caring about their students and work hard to make everyone feel loved and appreciated. The academics are spot-on with other public schools in the area and my son had no problems in transitioning into 5th grade at our local public school. Erie First Christian Academy prepared him well for the middle and high school years! I am very greatful for the moral religious instruction he received along with all of the academic basics in order to make him the strong leader that he is today. An education at EFCA is first-rate!

I went there from Preschool to 6th grade. It wasn't that bad. The class weren't too long, most of the kids were nice, and the teachers were very dedicated. Discipline is used when needed but is not too tight. Overall, it was a great school.

This school balances all aspects of learning very well. The teacher to student ratio is excellent and the teachers are some of the finest in the area. There is a rigorous curriculum offered to prepare each student for success in post-secondary education. The Christian aspect of the school environment is well balanced and not blatant. The students still face some of life s roadblocks (cliques, bullies etc.) that can t be avoided in any school. But all the situations are handled in a Christian way with quick solutions mostly by the students themselves. Parents are always kept apprised of every thing from curriculum to progress reports. My daughter has been enrolled in this school since kindergarten and she feels very comfortable and has had a very good rapport with every teacher she has had. The only downside that I have encountered as a parent is that there could be more extracurricular activities for the students to be involved in..

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.
