Flint Academy is unique. It is the only Christian, Classical, All-Inclusion school that I have heard of in the DFW area. Our children have been at Flint Academy for the past 5 years and it has continued to be a place where they all three can excel and their strengths are able to shine. We have been impressed with the Dyslexia program, it continues to change and grow as needed. We are also thankful that our son who is on the Autism Spectrum is able to do Honors work and have his social needs met and feel a part of something bigger than himself. Flint Academy also continues to add to their curriculum with Music, Dance, Theater, and Poetry. Competing and performing in the community. This year they also added a Green Cord Community Service group that allows all of our students to be out in the community contributing to the world.
I highly recommend Flint Academy for anyone who is ready to step out of the "box" that education has become in the State of Texas.
Take the time to read the negative reviews. They are very accurate. Please take notice that there are no reviews in the past 2 years and all ratings are largely 5 stars or 1 star. This school is geared toward kids on the spectrum or students who cannot cope or thrive in the average school setting. If this describes your child, you do not have high expectations of your child's education, or you want to detach yourself from the entire process, this is the school for you.
We have had our children at Flint Academy since the second year it opened. Had we known about it earlier, we would have been there. The teachers are compassionate and love the kids like their own. The children feel special and strive to please the teachers. The academics are adapted to each student's level and perfected to completion. The kids feel good about themselves and know that they are eternally significant because of the compassionate and consistent instruction of not only the teachers, but the staff as well. There is a feeling of family at Flint Academy. Check it out for yourself and ask for parental references. We would do it all over again. It is the best decision we ever made.
This school has changed my children's lives and we cannot thank them enough. The teachers genuinely care about each student and deliver an individualized curriculum that is far and above what my kids received in public school. They are learning a combination of real-world skills with Christian values and classical education through interactive means, while progressing significantly faster academically than in previous years. In addition, the school itself provides a warm and inviting environment that is like a second home, with teachers and peers a second family. My kids have a newfound love for learning through this school and they never want to miss a day!
We would not recommend this school. School is not accredited. Most teachers are not certified. Accountability for student performance or lack there of is non-existent. Very weak and outdated curriculum and instruction techniques. Little access to technology on campus during class for most students.
The Flint Academy is Tarrant County's best kept secret! It is a school that prides itself on molding children with high morals, values, academics and taking on personal responsibility. The Flint Academy is great for children who learn differently. At this school, they have teachers that have personal knowledge of what it takes for a child with ADHD/Dyslexia, etc. to learn. The teaching style is far above that of any regular teaching methods offered. I would strongly recommend this school to any parent!
This will be our third year attending The Flint Academy. My children love school! I remember in school, we couldn't wait for summer to come. My children dread summer coming! They love this school! The Flint Academy is truly a unique and special school. The staff and especially the principal care so much for our children. We were so blessed when we found them! All the teachers and staff are wonderful and the teaching philosophy is outstanding. Not only do children thrive academically, they thrive socially as well. We are so excited to see The Flint Academy grow, and we would love to share all the wonderful benefits with more families. Come and check us out!
This is the third year my three kids have been at Flint. Every year we have had amazing teachers that have met all my kid s needs. My oldest was years behind on his reading when we first came to the school and he is close to being on grade level now after just 3 years. Attending school here is like a big extended family where everyone is loved and taken care of. We attended another bigger private school before Flint and after being here I can t imagine my kids being anywhere else.
