    "During the first six months at Blair, we have noticed a major change in our son. His writing skills improved. He s beginning to learn to identify words and read sentences. He actually looks forward to doing homework. His overall work ethic changed and he wants to do better and get an A on every test. His behavior is improving and will keep improving as his maturity level develops. We were asked in September to set one goal for our son and that goal was to have him reading on a 1st grade reading level before he completes kindergarten. I see that we are on our way to achieving that goal and possibly even surpassing it. We believe in grading the school, the staff and the quality of education received the same way that our son receives grades and for the first three months of this semester Blair Christian Academy receives an A+ . Keep up the good work Blair, job well done!"

    "Blair Christian Academy's motto is the school children call home, which I have found to be true on so many levels. I have had three children attend the school, with my youngest now in the preschool program. One of the school's strengths is the immense amount of love that is shown to the students. In addition to being a great academic environment, you can tell that the staff and teachers really love and care about your child. They go above and beyond to make sure children are cared for, are safe, and are learning. The teachers treat the students like they would their own children, and that is so hard to find. It is very comforting to know that I don't have to worry while I am working, if everything is okay with my child. I am also impressed with how much my children have learned while at Blair and how upon leaving they were able to compete among the best and brightest with confidence. I am so grateful for the foundation they receive at Blair and would wholeheartedly recommend it to others."

    "Blair Christine academy is a poor school. Do not send you child or children there. Sending you children to Blair is like sending them to public school but you as a parent is paying tuition. Dr. Jenkins has lost focus of the core principle and mission statement. All Dr.jenkins worry about it Money. She dnt care about her administration or students. Over the past two years Blair Christine Academy has lost good and hard working teacher that valued education. The building is falling apart when it rain it's leaks all over the school. And the school do not have any heat during the beginning of the week. There is a high turnover in teacher. It school should be closed down because they are teaching the children nothing."

    "My child used to go to BCA, from Kindergarten to 1st grade. I would not recommend this school to anybody. The staff is not friendly at all. The teachers are overwhelmed with other duties besides teaching, which makes it hard for them to attend to your child's needs. It's either very hot in the classrooms or very cold, which is a big distraction to the students. There are leaks in the ceiling and the bathrooms are dirty. No soap or toilet paper. Also, if you receive a BCA Scholarship, it is mandatory to put in volunteer hours, so be prepared for them to work you like a slave. If you do not complete your volunteer hours by the end of the school year, they will keep your child's report card and will not give it to you until your hours are complete or your scholarship balance is paid. They are money hungry. I am so glad my child is out of that school."

    "BCA is , the worst school to ever send your child/children to ! The lunch has mold on it , the teachers are mean as ever , the principle has a Benz && a nice big house but can't afford to pay for the holes in the ceiling in the girls bathroom! Like Dr.Jenkins need to go sit her old self down somewhere like bye girl! And her own grand kids dont even like the school ! I truthfully see BCA closing within the next 2-4 years!"
