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.

Give your child an authentic gift of education in a warm, loving, christ-centered, student driven environment. We provide certified teachers with endorsements in special education, reading specialist and gifted and talented . Students study both academic and biblical curriculums that are enhanced with field experiences. Our kindergartner are in the top five percentiles ranking in the national examination. All students complete projects in science and history. All students are given diagnostic assessments the first week of school and bench mark assessment every nine weeks to assess academic growth to local and national objectives. Most students are taught above current grade level.

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.

I have two grandchildren that have attended ABC Word Academy and love it. My grandson Aiden has attended for three years and his teacher is awesome. 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.

I am new to the Living Word Christian Academy family and so far I am very pleased with the staff at the school. The staff has been very helpful and have shown love and support to me and my family. I feel like I have made the right choice in choosing Living Word to help with the education of my child. I recommend others to check out the school as well. Good job Living Word.

I absolutely love this school!! They have taught my children so much. I especially love Ms Tina Jefferson because every single time my children and I come in contact with her, she has a welcoming smile on her face. This school has been such a great blessing to my family.

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.

Mychildren have been attending this school since 2006. My husband and i are pleased with the biblical and academic education they receive there. I have three children who have all attended pre-school there, and two of my children are now taking advantage of the intruction provided by the Gifted and Talented teachers in the upper level classes.
