We love Christopher Academy! Class sizes are small and attention is given to each child individually. For a small school, we have been so impressed by the classes offered and programs available to the students. Each teacher knows every child in the school by name! We were so impressed with that fact, as we feel like each teacher is there to support and encourage our child. We feel it is a safe, loving environment rich with opportunities for field trips and hands-on learning. We love CA and just wish it went beyond 5th grade!

Best decision we ever made! Don't let the facility fool you! Your child will get a wonderful education. Not only will he have a strong academic foundation but he will learn to be a conscientious citizen. Teachers are outstanding. Our son has been attending Christopher Academy for 4 years and I am amazed at his progress! Only wish they went to 8th grade!

I love this school. My son started going when he was 3 years old. Before starting school he was very shy, never wanted to be without mommy, was afraid to play with other kids and didn't talk much and when he did was very difficult to understand. As a 3 year old he attended 2 days a week. Within a month his vocabulary was noticeably larger and he was a littler easier to understand. Two years later he is a completely different boy. He's very outgoing, energetic and loves school. As a 4 year old he attends five days a week and just the other day he was telling me about Michelangelo and his famous painting and how long it took him to pain it. The parents and teachers are very much involved. The organization at this school is amazing. You always know what is going on whether it be activities within the school or academics. I'm so amazed at how much my son has learned in such a short time. My daughter starts preschool next fall, if we weren't moving I'd definitely sign her up for as many days as possible. You can't go wrong with this school.

My child has attended CA for 5 years and will continue thru 5th grade. The teachers/parents and children are one big family. The school Motto Fosters a Love for Learning sums this school up. My child cries if she has to miss a day. She has her challenges and the school has always supported us in finding her path.

Christopher academy strives to constantly provide a developmentally appropriate environment for every child that will foster his/her desire to learn for a lifetime. We believe that students become independent thinkers and workers as they acquire a strong foundation in both academic and life skills. Our goal is that each child will develop to his/her fullest potential and will love learning. When a student experiences learning difficulties, we strive to work in partnership with parents to find the resources in our community that will help meet their child's needs.

My children have been attending since preschool and they LOVE IT! The teachers ensure that all students are challenged to their fullest potential. The small class sizes and individual attention make sure that all children reach their fullest potential in a fun and caring environment. The teachers and staff go above and beyond to look at all aspects of your child...intellectual social and emotional. My only wish is that they went beyond 5th grade. Definitely take a look at this school you won't regret it!

If your child is not a "perfect" child you will be told that they do not have the ability to teach your child. They will try to make you think that there is "something" wrong with your child. Do not waste your money or your time.

All parents should consider this school. This was the best decision we made and wish we had done it sooner!
