    "My four year old son began attending Faith Christian Academy in September 2013 and is really enjoying Pre-K. He is doing great with his letters, can write his name, and loves singing worship songs that he has learned at school. I recently transferred my two older sons to FCA and they are so glad to be a part of this wonderful school. They feel peaceful and know that their teachers genuinely care about them. FCA is an excellent school where children not only learn about the Lord, but they are taught about the importance of having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. The school has high academic standards. Although Common Core is taught in ELA and Math, this school will not expose the children to anything that is inappropriate or that contradicts our Christian faith. My boys are enjoying their classes and love the Chapel services. I highly recommend this school."

    "We are relatively new to the school and we will not be reenrolling. In general here is our experience. Poor communication. Poor teaching. Kids who do not treat other kids as Christians should treat others. Overly competitive in sports. Something is very wrong at this school and I cant quite put my finger on it but it probably starts at the top. It's been a very frustrating year for us."

    "A new location, a big building and a large campus is not the core of a good education in a christian environment. This school has missed the importance of children with education. The academics is poor and there is little discipline in the classrooms due to the poorly trained staff and over sized classrooms. Most of the student/teacher issues never get resolved. The school let go of many good teachers and replaced with church members who are unqualified in an educational environment. Chapel is forced and the school has unresolved bullying. The school is in need of lots of improvement in many areas and I definitely would not recommend this school."

    "We love FCA and have had children enrolled there for 10 years. The academics are great with excellent teachers. My son is a recent 8th grade graduate. FCA prepared him well for 9th grade at Arlington HS. He ended the 9th grade with an excellent GPA. This included taking 4 honors classes, making both the HS soccer and baseball teams, and being very successful in the 9th grade upper band. FCA, thru partnering with us, strongly imparted a strong biblical foundation to help my son succeed in life. In the 9th grade at Arlington, my son took Honors Biology which pushed a humanistic world view with evolution taught as fact. After the 9th grade ended, I asked what he thought of this. He said that God makes more sense over evolution. I continue to see strong biblical values practiced throughout my son's dating life, conduct, and friend selection. My daughter is in the 6th grade at FCA. She loves FCA, her teachers, and friends.The teachers are very good and well qualified. She is also doing very well academically plus being grounded in the Christian faith. She enjoys playing in the band and with the school soccer team. We love FCA. The school has impacted and truly blessed our lives."

    "As a parent of 2 students of FCA, I can say with no question that FCA is an excellent school. The teachers have deeply impacted my children in a positive way over the years and my kids love them. God is doing great things here in the school. With a new facility in the works and many new opportunities including international students, FCA is going nowhere but up. With it's small numbers, Faith students have the full attention of every single teacher and staff member on board. They know their students and care for them as if the kids were their very own, and I love them for that. The 6 year old High School is ever-increasing and advancing. The new building's state-of-the-art gymnasium, science lab, and classrooms will open a new door to fun and educational activities that students will love. My family has stuck with this great school for about a decade, and even when both my children have graduated from there, I will still recomend it to anyone I know."
