    "Faith Christian Academy is committed to loving and serving the students, their parents and the community. There have been bumps in the road as the school works toward transitioning into the beautiful new building and reaching out to international students, but any organization in transition will experience growing pains. I know the staff to be qualified and committed to both academic excellence and spiritual depth. There is no compromise in one for the other. The leadership of the school truly love the students and are working toward providing a quality education that equips graduates to live boldly for Christ in the world as it is. Anyone looking for a quality Christian education for their children would be wise to look into FCA."

    "My daughter is in the 7th grade at FCA and began in pre-K. She loves it there and is asking if she can continue thru HS. When asked who her favorite teacher is, she cannot decide as she likes them all. She loves Mr ONeil with his amazing knowledge of history. She loves Literature with Mrs M as they read The Hobbit. She also loves pre-algebra and science. I feel the school is excellent. If you call the school office, you will learn that all the core HS teachers are NYS certified. The teachers are all bible believing Christians with a good mix of younger teachers thru those who have been teaching for over 30 years. I am impressed with the academics, especially as they introduced AP and Honors classes this year with more coming next year. I have noticed a more friendly and family environment this year thru Mrs Jacobs(our new dean) emphasis on community building and connecting thru after school events that we used to have such as roller skating, bonfires, various clubs, trying to get an evening at Bounce, and breakfast meetings with parents. My child loves this school, and we are happy with the staff, academics, and community."

    "We have been with FCA for years now, and unfortunately it has gone down hill over the past 5 years. The teachers are not qualified to teach high school and there is a lot of favoritism there. Even the kindergarden teacher quit after two weeks. It is not a warm and loving atmosphere anymore"

    "In response to the review dated September 4, 2014- I must say that I am completely impressed by your writing and composition skills. If you are a graduate of FCA, there should be great credit given to all the teachers and educators at that institution, and to all of you I say "job well done"!!!. My children are currently students at FCA and I look forward to the day they can express their thoughts on paper and write as eloquently as you just did in your review. I am sorry you had a horrible experience at FCA but at least you excelled in writing composition. The school must be doing SOMETHING right. Kudos to the English/Literature professors at FCA!"

    "I am a graduate of FCA. My high school experience there was frankly pretty horrible. The administrators failed to communicate with students or parents, cut excellent teachers only to replace them with comparatively unqualified people, and enforced discipline on a wildly biased and inconsistent basis. Rules were enforced only sometimes and for some people, and I watched people I care about be needlessly punished while others got away with blatant disobedience. The (HS) teachers loved the Lord but in general seemed to be unqualified to teach secondary education. A huge percentage of the HS relies on tutoring outside of FCA. Classes were unproductive and disorganized and failed to prepare us for Regents exams. Chapels were filled with enthusiastic staff trying to make their spirituality rub off on resentful students. It's very sad to me to see the school run by Christians with good intentions who honestly make Christianity look judgmental, arrogant, legalistic, and hypocritical. I ask that you pray for FCA but suggest that you save your tuition money and send your children elsewhere."
