This school has been great for my son. It has changed his life. For the first time I think he has felt safe and cared for at school. The academic curriculum is right on par with other schools in the area. The sports program has been fantastic. The headmaster has spent time with my son and has blessed his life. We have been blessed to be there.

FCA has been the best thing for our granddaughter. We have seen her mature and advanced with her peers at FCA. FCA is a roll model for all private, Christian school.. They are caring and loving as well versed in academics.THe teachers are most willing to help each student plus the students thrive in a smaller environment. IWe really can't say enough good things about FCA. They deserve a 5 star rating.

FCA is a very small school that has a huge heart for Christ centered learning. Both of my children have enjoyed their teachers who have academically challenged them. Even though we recognize that the process of learning is as much the child's responsibility as the teacher's, I would rate the teaching staff at FCA as very good and in some cases excellent. The extracurricular offerings for this small school are outstanding and the cultivation of a sense of community is exceptional. When FCA transitions to their new campus in 2014, I believe their growth will be explosive. For the money, FCA is the best option in the county for a private Christian school.

FCA is the best school for our daughter. We started 2 years ago in the 5th grade and this year she will be in the 7th grade. It has a loving Christian environment that helps her grow and be who Christ wants her to be. The teachers are very caring and helpful in class and teach her to apply herself in each subject and in every situation. The class sizes are small which helps her learn better and she is able to not get lost in a big school atmosphere. She truly has a family at FCA and the leadership qualities that she is learning is mentored by the older students in high school. They are taught to be servant leaders to their classmates and they show the love of Jesus to their friends and fellow students at FCA. The administration is helpful and we can't wait to see what God has in store for our daughter at FCA in the years to come. We love FCA!!

Franklin Christian Academy (FCA) has been a true Godsend for our family. As the only 5th-12th grade school in Franklin, TN it offers a secure and loving environment focused on a Christ centered learning. Students are taught the true meaning of servant leadership. Learning both the standard course curriculum and the biblical truths our nation and society were built upon. FCA prepares its students mentally and spiritually for the future. For a quality education in a Christ centered environment one cannot find a better school in all of Williamson county.

FCA has provided our son a great education in a caring Christian environment. The small class size gives opportunity for deeper relationships and deeper learning. Education is not just about surviving, rather it should be about thriving. The staff is an amazing group of men and women who love the Lord and love teaching. My son has been impacted by everyone at FCA. He is now thriving in school. He is very proud to be a falcon!

Franklin Christian Academy taught my child absolutely nothing. She came into the school ahead of most of the students academically, and after we took her out and placed her in a public school, she was extremely far behind all of the students in her grade academically. This school does not prepare you for college, and/or life in general, whatsoever. Do not waste your time here. Invest your money in a private school that will actually TEACH the students something. I truly regret every dollar I spent for that school.

FCA is making lots of positive improvements in the area of raising standards of academic performance and discipline. One of the core values of the school is to value kids who don't necessarily fit a specific mold, but can have differences celebrated. This does not mean that it is all inclusive and a fit for every student. Several students have left the school due to inability to adhere to school discipline, and also inability to be dedicated with a strong academic effort. The school is better for this. I would urge anyone interested to contact the school and meet with the Admissions office. Decide for yourself. It seems about 80% of the reviews posted here are very positive.

We love FCA. This is my son's 2nd year and he is learning so much. The teachers are so caring and Christ-centered. There are great families at FCA too. I would highly recommend it.

Great School! It is the best thing that could have happened for my son and our family. I am not sure where the last comment is comng from. I have never gotten the impression that the school is about money since it is one of the less expensive christian schools around. I have taught at another well known private chistian school in the area and F.C.A. is better than any other I have seen. They have all the accrediation that is required for graduation from the state. They also have the same accrediation as most private schools in the area. People who hate authority figues usually have problems with authority in genereal..

THIS SCHOOL IS A PRISON. my son has attended FCA for 3 years and unless your child has a brain problem or cannot handle themselves in a public school environment your child will be completely and utterly MISERABLE at this school, it does NOT help get into any good colleges. Your child will grow to hate all authoritive figures in their lives. DO NOT SEND YOUR CHILDREN TO FCA. all Hugh Harris thinks about is the money and the new building, and the other teachers are young and very inexperienced. Mrs. Branson talks rudely of the students behind their backs. I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS SCHOOL

My daughter has enjoyed her first year at FCA. She has come out of her shell and feels that her teachers and the staff care about her. The faculty is working with us to continue to challenge her and are concerned with her academic success, personal growth, and spiritual maturity. We have been thoroughly pleased this year.

FCA has been so good for our family. My children have flourished in the small individualized environment going from typical shy, socially awkward I'll-just-read-a-book-and-ignore-life kids in school to class leaders with strong academic habits and a love for learning and its challenges. The teachers are both engaged and relational and at the same time they work hard to hold the kids to high standards in academics, engagement and personal character. Switching from our local public school, as highly rated as it is, was the best choice we could have made. Due to the small environment some draw backs about the school would include limited choices in foreign language and music and arts programs. But the choices offered are quality and taught by experienced professionals. Over all we are very happy with the school and look forward to many years there!

It is unfortunate to hear about those allegations. As a school, we try to make decisions on what is best for each student on a case by case basis. We communicate with each family about their child's progress. The three pillars of our school are outstanding academics, transforming discipleship and live giving community. That is what we are about and what we aim to do each day.

I am so impressed with FCA! The teachers are so qualified and really care about the students. It is a small school intentionally so that they can give individual attention to the students!

This school has such a wonderful and caring environment for students. They focus on the core values of academics, community, and discipleship and it really is what they portray it to be when you ask them what FCA is all about. Our headmaster is a great guy who sets the stage for his teachers to follow. He engages with the kids and really does care about them and it shows. The teachers make learning fun and the kids want to go to school because they feel loved and a part of a community.The teachers graduated from very good colleges and universities and are various ages.The diversity of the school is wonderful! I would, and have recommended this school to anyone who is seeking a quality Christian education.

All of our children have attended FCA and I can't say enough good things about it! The teachers and faculty really get to know the students and help them on a personal level. Their academics challenge the students and they do an excellent job in preparing them for higher learning. Thank you FCA!

I have never enjoyed teaching as much as I do at FCA. Having been in a variety of settings -- public and private, from elementary to university levels -- I can honestly say that FCA's students, their families, the administration and my colleagues are unparalleled. FCA consistently encourages me to find new and creative ways to teach a subject I'm passionate about, to all types of learners.

We have had one issue after another with this school. To begin with, the academics are pathetic. The youth and inexperience of the teachers leads them to have low standards for their students. Worst of all, the principle, Mr. Harris seems to be disconnected from his responsibility to his students. He does NOT communicate with parents when there are problems nor does he take appropriate disciplinary actions to handle those problems. I do not recommend this school!

FCA is a good school. I must disagree with a previous post. The Headmaster is concerned with all the children that attend. There is a scholorship fund that assists lots of the students who cannot afford the tuition. The students come from diverse cultures and economic circumstances. All of the teachers are not young and inexperienced. The majority of the teachers are middle-aged and have advanced degrees and have traveled outside of the United States. FCA is a caring environment and the teachers are readily available when needed. They allow the students to be creative and enjoy learning. FCA is striving to improve consistently.

This is not a school for academics. The teachers are young and inexperienced. The principal is only interested in those with the money to advance the school. Discipline is not really considered and the kids are given too much freedom. We were not happy with this school and put our child back in public school.

Great Humanities classes from a Biblical worldview. Caring teachers. Improving all the time. This school is a good match for independently motivated learners.
