CA is an outstanding choice for a private academy to send your child to school. Our family moved over 800 miles so our children could attend CA and Spalding/CAMS in Collegedale. We had two graduate in 2010 and have another child that will start CA in the Fall of 2011. Our overall experience has been very positive. Multiple teachers stayed after class for extra help. Several teachers and administrators took a special interest in each one of our children and were available to speak with and offer advice and guidance when needed. Bringing our family here and enrolling in local schools in Collegedale was the best decision we could have made for our family.

I attended Collegedale Academy. While it may appear to be a solid choice. Beware, it is a very political organization. Plenty of cover ups have happened over the years that were certainly Not in the best interest of the students. Teachers with serious inappropriate behavior, if dealt with at all, are only moved to another school within the system to thwart any community embarrassment! If you are connected within the community, travel in the "right circles" or have large bank accounts you can essentially right your children's ticket! I have my own children now...of the attending age. I would absolutely never send my own child to any of the SDA schools in this area. Private schools are generally a wonderful option for those who are financially able. We have chosen other private education based on our experiences and many that happened post graduation. Please Beware...

Collegedale Academy has a long and illustrious history, but even more important, it has made great strides in facilities, teachers' degrees, student/teacher ratio, and course offerings. I feel privileged to be an alumna.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

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 teacher 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.

What makes a great teacher? Study after study shows the single most important factor determining the quality of the education a child receives is the quality of his teacher. Here are some characteristics to look for »
