Christ Academy provides a wonderful education for Pre K thru 12th grade. The teachers and administrators are wonderful. They have moved towards the 21st Century learning with online classes. This is truly the best school in Wichita Falls, Texas

We have had a great experience at Christ Academy. The education they receive here is outstanding and far above public school. Math is a grade level ahead and the teachers personalize my children's education. The teachers are Godly people who deeply care for my children. The school doesn't have to teach to the state test, STARR. They can focus on my kids and not how to fill in bubbles on a test. I feel my children will be well prepared for college and for life! The administration also listens and is very approachable. We are very pleased with Christ Academy and the family atmosphere.

This is our 3rd year at Christ Academy, and we have 4 children enrolled there. We and our children love Christ Academy! We have felt connected with every teacher our children have had there, and they do a great job of keeping us informed of our kids' progress and areas for improvement. In addition to the exceptional academic program there, CA is consistently adding new extracurricular programs for the children to be involved in. Teachers, staff, and administration are professional, kind, and more than helpful when we approach them with a need. I can't imagine our kids attending school anywhere else in the area!

We've been apart of the CA family for four years...being a military family that transition a lot the warm welcome was/is refreshing. The rigorous curriculum is challenging our children academically. The teachers are readily available and supportive. The administration is proactive and attentive. Very grateful for have our children in a godfearing environment!

Christy Academy has been a blessing our daughter. The new administration is wonderful. They really know what they are doing. The teachers are caring. Christ Academy is now in the 21st Century teaching online classes. I would highly recommend Christ Academy.

Our daughter is in her second year at Christ Academy and we are so blessed to be apart of the Christ Academy family! From the moment you walk in you are treated with warmth, kindness and an overwhelming sense of community. Our daughter loves her teachers and we love that her academics are a step above the rest. She's in 4K and is already beginning to read and do addition! She even participates in the ballet academy that comes to school and the music program as well. Highly recommend Christ Academy! It is top notch!

It was a waste of time and money sending my children over there. We were very disappointed. My children were completely unhappy. The staff were only nice before we joined. After we enrolled, they treated us like trash. They keep changing their words, and for the mistakes they did, they accused parents of not doing things right. If I could go back to the past, I would never send my children to CA again.

I don't know why other reviews are good . We had terrible experience here. My children now go to public school, and the learning at public school is ahead of Christ Academy. They had hard times catching up. Please save your money, and your kids time and go somewhere else. This school only wants your money. My kid was scared of the teachers because they were mean.

My child had a horrible time at Christ Academy . Teachers and staff don't really care about you and your children. My child kept complaining that teachers did not give enough explanations. I needed to teach him at home almost everything.

I have been at Christ Academy for 10 years and I can honestly say it is better than it has ever been. The administration and teachers believe in the mission to produce academically well prepared students who model the character of Jesus Christ. They are preparing my children for higher education and for life. They challenge while also provide a nurturing environment. It is a great place and I am confident my children are not being taught to a test, they are mastering what they learn.

Christ Academy is constantly exceeding my expectations of a school through their excellent teachers, curriculum and culture. I was never expecting to leave our children in private beyond preschool, but I find that what is being offered at Christ Academy is worth the investment! From education that is rigorous and focused on them to the culture that includes faith in Jesus Christ in every subject, this school has been great. I love the involvement and interaction of students with each other. The sports programs are expanding to include children of every grade level. There is an forward thinking approach to high school and middle school that makes Christ Academy the best place for college preparation in the area. As much as I might try, I can never convey in words how awesome the support and culture are driven by the teachers. They truly love their students, and my children absolutely love their teachers and school. In fact, they both beg for us to let them stay after school to participate in the after school programs and summer care programs.

Christ Academy now goes through 12th Grade! We will have our first graduating class in May of 2013!

We Love Christ Academy (formerly The Episcopal School), and it now is going through 9th grade, adding a grade in high school every year. Just how many extra-curricular activities does one child need? I think there is plenty @ CA, but aren't our children just a bit overscheduled anyway? If you want your children to be immersed in christ-like attitude, biblical teaching and a great curriculum, then CA is the place to be.

we had a horrible time at a nearby public school and transfered our children to TES, it has been a dream come true. We love the curric. and the resources for our children.

We love this school!! After a terrible year at another school, we transferred our child & have been here for the past 3 years. We love the teachers, they truly care & display Christian values. We wish TES went thru High School so our child would never have to leave this wonderful environment. The academics are challenging enough to keep the children engaged & learning. In Jr High, the kids will be getting High School credits.

i had 2 daughters that went to episcopal school. one thru the sixth grade. the other thru the seventh. one is in nursing school currently. the other is on the presidents dean's list at her college. the values, goal setting, christian atmosphere are unbeatble. my son currently attends this school. he has tested out post high school on the stanford in all subjects since in the second grade. he is currently a fifth grader and will attend episocpal thru the eighth grade. i have a grandson that will begin attending the school in two years. i have been involved with this school for 15 years. it is a superb learning environment..with basically no discipline problems, an excellent teacher to pupil ratio and very postivie atmosphere. i highly recommend this school

The Episcopal School is an wonderful school and it provides students with a varied education. The teachers and staff nurture the spiritual and academic needs of the students.

We have enjoyed being at TES. IT is a very nice school with a good academic curriculum. It does not offer enough as far as extra curricular activities go. The price is a bit high considering the lack of everything except a quality curriculum. It is an excellent school for this area but, not as good as some public schools in other outlying areas. The Stanford scores are so high because they can pick and choose the students that go there. We do not regret our decision to go to TES at all. It meets our childrens needs for now.

I am a former student of The Episcopal school, and most of my classmates and I all went to the same high school together. 5 out of the Top 10 graduates were all students at Episopal during the elementary year. Most of us are now off studying pre-law and pre-med. It was a great school.

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.
