Living Word Christian Academy provides an amazing academic and faith-based environment for its students. The administrative staff and teachers are committed to preparing students for today's academic and social challenges. My second grader is thriving in this environment because his teacher's instruction methodology is differentiated and geared toward college preparedness. The student-teacher ratio is conducive to student engagement and overall academic development. In addition to the core curriculum, many assignments are designed to promote confidence in public speaking and productive citizenship. It's definitely the right academic and social environment for my son.

Living Word is an awesome school for students to attend because I help kids advance beyond where they are. The leadership at Living Word (Principal) has a heart for children and makes sure the teachers and staff are provided with the tools necessary to teach our children. It teaches them educational curriculum and spiritual. Making it a happy and healthy environment for the staff and students. Excellent.

My son has been coming to the school since he was 2 years old and now he is going on 4 years old. The preschool curriculm is excellent but some of the teachers can be a little strict and not understanding of the childrens age. They do offer great specials for children and extended care but they care more about attracting new clients then giving the better deals to existing clients.

My son has attended LWCA since preschool and is now a seventh grader. He has always done well, however, under the current administration and staff his focus has improved immensely and he"s doing better. I'm extremely proud of the fact that he's in a Christian enviroment where biblical principles are taught along with the other academics necessary to progress to the next level in life. I highly recommend this school.

Ms. Evelyn has a great relationship with him and he is excelling in her class. My granddaughter Erqka loves (Ms. Dee) and can't wait to get back to her. The overall school has a good curriculum and the teachers are very attentive to the children. I would recommend this school to anyone who is looking for great school.

I really recommend this school to anyone who has children. The pre-school program is excellent. My daughter came during the second half of the year and she learned do much in a short period. Parents you still have to do your part but these teachers are a great first start. I really do love Mrs.Tanya and so does my daughter, but Ms. Meka, Ms. Missa, Ms. Larrisa, and Ms. Nakyia all play a part as well.

The Teachers at Living Word Christian Academy are extraordinary! The Superintendent, and other Upper Administration, bring a negative atmosphere to the school. They smile, yet your heart knows it is FAKE. They do not LIVE THE WORD in their actions or the tone of their voices. (making snide remarks behind one's back) My children are not being cared for by a babysitter. They are learning every moment of their day, (well, except nap time) If I could just deal with the teachers and not the administrative staff this place would be near perfect. I do have a problem with paying for EVERY field trip or play. Isn't that what my $250 activity fee is for? The advanced curriculum and the incorporation of GOD throughout the day is AWESOME. The teaching staff is AMAZING. For my child EVERYDAY was a GOOD DAY.

LWCA is a great school for any child to attend. My daughter was used to staying at home with grandma so I thought that it would be very hard for her to adapt. However the teachers and staff not only made her feel comfortable being there, they made me feel comfortable as well. I like the fact that they treat the kids like their very own, when they are sad or crying the teacher pick them up and comfort them. My daugter has learned so much there and I am very greatful.

My son started attending Living Word Christian Academy/ABC Word Academy school in August of 2011. He was 2 1/2 years old. Ms. Evelyn was his teacher she is AWESOME! She nutures her students at the same time teaches the essentials needed for 2 year olds to grow to the next level, which is obviously effective. My son loves her! His learning ability seems to improve by the week. Ms.Tina and Ms.Veronica are both welcoming, both ladies are approachable with WONDERFUL spirits. The enviroment makes is safe I love that there are active camera's around the campus. I would refer Living Word Christian Academy/ABC Word Academy to anyone that is seeking a school for thier child. ~Stacy Thomas

I have had the pleasure of having 2 of my children attend ABC & Livingword academy. My son attended ABC when he was 3yrs old & would quote scriptures & sing all the time from what he learned & now my 23mo old is following in his footsteps. She already knows her ABC's & singing yes Jesus loves me! I really love that this school gives my kids the basis of christianity. My son is now 7yr old & still goes to the summer camp where he enjoys himself & back singing songs & quoting scriptures! Tonya Young

Exceptional School. Love Ms. Tina the director. She also taught my little one when she was still in the classroom. Now she is with Ms. Evelyn who is also awesome.

ABC Word Academy has been the right choice since my child's school closesd without warning. I had to find a school that had the same concept and when I entered the school and met Ms. Tina she made me feel right at home and this is the reason why I chose this school. She is is very professional and listens to the parents and really care about the students. My child was able to continue on with his learning and is excelling academically. The school has great teachers who also care about the students. I made the right choice and want to say ABC Word Academy is a great schoo!

ABC Word Academy is a good school with a caring environment. My two children are well cared for. The caregivers in the infants room are caring and attentive to my child's needs. The teachers in the toddlers room have been great academically. I can see that my child is learning. It is good to see him come home with projects that he has completed that day. He also looks forward to seeing his teachers every day. The office staff is friendly and good about contacting us if there is an issue concerning the children's health and other matters. Overall, ABC Word Academy has been a good choice for the caring and well being of our young children.

ABC Word Academy is a good school for infants and toddlers. I have been pleased so far with what my 18 month old is learning on a daily basis. I especially like the structured curriculum for the infant and 18 month to 2 year old classrooms. The teachers and staff are very friendly and the school itself exudes a wonderful Christian environment. The one thing that I am displeased with is how the price increase was handled. I have no problem with increases in pricing, but I was not notified in a proper or timely manner before the price increase went into affect.

ABC Word Academy is a wonderful school. I love the way Jesus is being incoroporated in their everyday activities. This is clearly demonstrated when my son is able to recite bible verses at 3 yrs old or when he comes home and emulates how Mr. Coleman sings " If anybody ask you who I am, Tell them I'm a child of God". Thanks for doing a wonderful job ABC. Tomeka Preston

Our family has a 10 year tenure with LWCA. My oldest son was homeschooled, and after I experienced a brief illness in February 2002, he was invited to attend LWCA for a week while I recuperated. He loved the academy so much, he begged to stay and ultimately graduated from 8th grade in 2008. What I appreciated most about the academy was that it built on the foundation that we had alread laid in our son's life: nurturing a love for God and a sense of responsibility in him taking ownership of his own education. When he entered high school in CFISD, his counselors and teachers were simply amazed with how far advanced he was in his studies! This year he graduated from high school Summa Cum Laude and will leave to attend Baylor University in a week! We were so pleased that we repeated the same process with our two younger sons, one who entered second grade in 2009, and the last one who entered first grade in 2010. Both boys, again, faired very well with the process at LWCA: the daily chapel, the rigorous and biblically intergrated curriculum, AND the nurturing and dedicated staff! We have also been VERY pleased with their standardized test scores each year. Thank you, LWCA!

If there was way to rate the school -0- stars I would have. The administration is horrible! It's like talking to a brick wall. When asked a question or if a concern is brought to them nothing gets resolved and please don't expect an accurate answer. The reply is usually babble, just enough to aggravate you so you leave it alone. Please reconsider bringing your child to LWCA. Spend a little more money to get better service.

When we initially enrolled our child we were not please with the teacher. She was unfriendly, unprofessional & borderline rude. As expected we moved our child to a different classroom & we have been happy with the results thus far. At this young age we have observed our child's ability to cut shapes, count to 100 by singles & 5's, sound out words, spell & recognize site words! We love the current teacher! With that being said here are our concerns. We've noticed several large dead cockroaches in the gym & hallways, there is a foul smell radiating from the restrooms, it seems to be a disconnect with administration & staff(I have personally heard grumbles of displeasure with working conditions from teachers about administration) & lastly we have to pay for EVERYTHING! Every activity is a charge. A trip to the library 2, petting zoo @ the school 6, play production @ the school 6 & a trip to a neighboring church 2(shouldn't that @ least be free since this is a Christian environment?) We've participated in several fundraisers this year & are wondering where the money went. Certainly not to field trip fees! We're not sure our child will be returning next year. Hope this helps. Blessings!

I am a public school teacher. My niece and nephew started out at LWCA. Unfortunately, their parents had to relocate. However, when my niece started her new school, she was so far advance than the other students. She was test and moved up a grade. My nephew is ahead of this class. After seeing my niece and nephew advance academically, my son now attends LWCA. There is a big difference in Private Christian Education and Public School Education. LWCA offers lots of one on one. I enjoy talking and working with the teachers.

Enrolling my grandaughter at this school was my biggest mistake.I feel as if I failed my grandaughter. My grandaughter has been at Brookhollow Christian Academy for 6 years and I was very satisfied. BCA only went up to 2nd grade, which left me looking for another Christian Academy. I'm sad to say I was told about LWCA.The teacher I was introduced to when I came to tour the school wasnt the same teacher that is my grandaughters teacher now. At the beginning of the school year I noticed the mispelling of words on the board.I went in at the beginning of the school year and let her teacher know that I was there to support her as the teacher and my grandaughter. I noticed that the teacher didnt give out conduct sheets for the purpose of communication. The first 9 weks was o.k., but I was noticing that her teacher didnt seem as if she was an experienced teacher. The second nine weeks was a total nightmare. My grandaughter recieved 3 F's on her progress report and I was never notified by the teacher that my grandaughters grades dropped down from A's and B"s to F's. There is no communication from the teacher to the parents and the administration is know help.

As a parent I feel that when you have a problem with anything that occurs at the school you should be able to go to the administrator of the school to resolve the problem. Each time I went to Ms. Goodie or had a conversation with her I felt as if she wasnt holding the teacher responsible for anything. I felt as if I was being labeled and attacked. At this point I'm just waiting for the end of the school year because I have know intention of returning to LWCA. Every school that hold any type of Accreditation has guidelines in which they must follow in order to keep their Accreditation. I bought my grandaughter here for a Christian Education, small classes, firm but loving teachers. I feel that my grandaughters teachers are lazy, unexperienced and untrained. I dont recommend Living Word Christian Academy to anyone.

I currently have two children attending this wonderful school. The earliest my children attended this school was 18 months.

Nothing is forced and when children seeking more knowledge it is provided.

My daughter is going to the first grade next school year and has been with LWCA since Pre-K all my daughter wants to do in her spare time is read, do math problems and write. I beleive this is all due to this school. She started reading and doing basic addition in Pre-K and now in kinder doing more advance levels along with learning spanish. They also have fine arts programs so that your child may be in after school activities which is also awesome. Also the adminitration has always been very nice in answering any questions I have had.

And to top it all off, the school is christian based. They have praise and worship service everyday and parents are invited to participate. My husband and I are pleased with my son's progress. The staff is helpful and friendly and all of the teachers are certified instructors. The after school programs they have developed are great. If you are in search of a Christian School for your child, please give IOCS a tour. You will definitely love it!!

It was very difficult working with the staff at this school. There seemed to be a 'control issue' between the administration/coordinators and the teachers. Yet it was the students who suffered when parents are denied access to teachers. I would strongly not recommend this school.
