It's closed. They shut down in 2010. It was a friendly school but not too strong academically.

Christway is a wonderful school. My daughter's teacher communicates well with us and my daughter loves being in her class.

I rated in 2004 and will rate now. I am still here! While we have had some transition that not everyone is happy with I still feel this is where God wants me. This is our 6th year and I hope to see the school through until my son and daughter graduate in 7 more years. Changes are being made, while difficult at best, for some to understand, ultimately I feel the changes are meant to have a positive result and will stick by them during this transition. Denyse Crews

Christway is a great school. It needs a little work with some of members of staff. My daughters teacher is nearly immpossible to deal with. But the rest of the staff is kind and loving.

ChristWay Academy is one of the very best schools I could ever have asked God to help me find for my daughter. She has had such great experiences and has made good grades while keeping a positive attitude (most of the time). But she's gotten so much more than an education at ChristWay. Of all the teachers and mentors she has had, she is truly happy to have been a participant at this school for the last eleven years. We hope she graduates with honors from here to go onto a good college. Christ is involved here, too. God Bless

Academic programs at this school are backward and are overly-focused on religious indoctrination and not enough on traditional education. For the school's small size, they do offer a large number of extracurricular activities, but nothing near what one could find at even the most meagerly equipped public school. Parents are involved, but are very high-percentage religious extremists for my tastes, and I am a religious person. Don't waste your time.

CWA has the best communication between the parents & administration that I've seen. Their sports program is first rate, with a variety of sports to choose from for secondary as well as elementary. Excellent, qualified, teachers. My son loved the teachers and the different projects kept school interesting. I feel the academic and spiritual leadership is right on target! I highly recommend Christway Academy!

In general, the academic standard is good, and my son's study habits and grades have greatly improved since he has been at Christway this year. They have a very good sports program with enthusiastic participation. Parental involvement is required (20 hours). Christway provides a kind and cheerful Christian environment.

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.
