We love this school. Originally we started one of our children here after they were having issues at their old school. After about two months, we were blown away at the difference between RCBA and the former Christian school. Our child blossomed as edification of the individual is celebrated here. They don't try to shove every kid into a "go along to get along box" but instead, teaches them how to use their God given personal traits to the fullest of their abilities. The classes are small. The teachers care and get to know every child. We had our other child shadow in his junior year. Most kids would want to stay at the school they had gone to since K4, but after spending a day here, we asked what his thoughts were. He said "I forgot". When we inquired what that met he said " I forgot that people could be nice and mean it". He also now attends RCBA. Great school and a true blessing!
I have 2 in school here and have been very impressed with the curriculum and achievements of my children's education. If you are looking with a school with values and morals and a sense of community then this school is for you. I prayed long and hard for the right school for them and found RCBA. My child in K is reading and the other one is very advanced in Math. i am very happy and impressed with this school.
I have been teaching at the school for 8 years. I have watched students grow in the truth and love of Christ. What greater reward can a teacher ask for.
This school has small classes and really works with individual students the way larger schools cannot
I have a daughter in first grade at this school. I am very pleased with the education she is getting, but more happy about the way she has grown to love God while attending here. She has an amazing teacher, she has made wonderful friends and she now loves going to school. Her class is small, they are like a family instead of a classmates. This is how education should be.
What I love about this school is the heart of their teachers. They will put a lesson on pause, when a teachable moment arises for character development, but in the end they do not allow academics to suffer.
I've been very happy with Believers Academy. My daughter has attended since kindergarten, and will graduate this year. (K-12) The tuition is very reasonable compared with other Christian schools here in San Antonio.
I am not a parent.. I am a senior at this school and have been there since kindergarten! I used to hate the idea of private schools but as time has gone on, I wouldnt give this school up for anything in the world. The teachers are caring, the sports program is amazing.. Especially basketball! And I love how close you can be with the other students, my class is like a second family!
We attend are acquainted with dozens of students who have or are currently attending Believers Academy. The school is superior academically and spiritually. The school offers very strong spiritual teaching and encourages students to adhere to a biblical worldview in all areas of life. BA offers a number of activities (several sports, student council, a developing band program, etc.) and its athletes regularly make it to TAPPS 1A state playoffs. Many of BA's graduates are unusually spiritually and emotionally mature. An unusually high emphasis is placed on discipline (including paddling -- even of high school students) and heart issues are regularly addressed -- all with the goal of increasingly conforming students to Christ-likeness.
Believers Academy is a school with God-fearing, hard working teachers where Christian truths are taught and withheld to. I was very blessed to go to this school.
I was a student at Believers Academy. Sometimes the academics were a little tough, but I am so glad I was so prepared for college and beyond - indivdual attention and strong Christian influence.
Parkwood Hill Intermediate is a wonderful school with caring teachers.
