Bible based and very conservative.
—Submitted by a parent

Posted August 31, 2003

This year will be my son's third year attending Christ Independent Baptist Academy. This is one of the best schools he has attended in the Philadelphia area. The administrator and teachers are very attentive. Any and all concerns are addressed immediately and with satisfaction. The curriculum is challenging. Each year they're adding new extracurricular activities for the children to participate in. When I told my son's math teacher that my son said he wasn't being challenged enough in math he gave him more challenging math work to do. Because it is such a small school with approximately 50 students, they can easily identify and address the children's strengths and weaknesses and that's a blessing. I can't say enough good things about this school. You're always greeted with a smile and 'Have a good day!' when you drop your children off. I rate C.I.B.A. a 5 in every aspect. You can't go wrong with sending your children to this school. This school goes up to 12th grade, so I don't have to look for a high school to send my son to.

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 student 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.
