    "My family has been a part of FCA for many years. Both of my children attended from preschool through 3rd and 6th grade when we had to move them to public school. They excelled in the local public schools both academically and socially thanks to their foundation from FCA. (Their FCAT scores were 4s and 5s and they were placed in honors and gifted programs.) After three years, they both asked to return to FCA becasue they missed the small Christian environment and close relationships between the students and teachers. We were at a point financially that we could make that happen, and we have not regretted our decision for one minute. Both kids will be in the high school this coming year and are so excited for school to begin. My family has been blessed by FCA. My children are so happy there and have made many wonderful friends. What a blessing FCA has been to my family. My children continue to grow academically, socially, and spiritually. Thank you Foundation Christian Academy and High School for being such a fantastic school!"

    "I am so pleased to have both of my boys be a part of the FCA family. My oldest son just completed his second year in the middle school program and excelled with 5 A's a B and C. He was in public school his whole school life before and never had the level of success that he has found there. His teachers listen and have the time to address individual needs and teach in a way he can grasp the information. That was never case in public school. My youngest son just completed 5th grade. He had the most impressive teacher I have ever met. She took my son who was in public school and hated every minute of it and made him like going to school each day. He is very close to his classmates and has been to several activities so far this summer with them. He never liked school until his last year at FCA. He doesn't even want to discuss join back to public school. My oldest is entering the high school program this year and didn't want to go to public school when given the choice. I am so excited to see what the next year brings. They are learning, excelling both spiritually and intellectually. I can't think of a better place for my kids. Love this school."

    "I want to extend a big thanks to you and all of the staff at FCA for the excellent educational foundation you provided for our boys while they attended school there. We have received their FCAT scores from their 1st year of public school ... and they were outstanding! Our 3rd grader received 5's in both of his subjects and our 5th grader received 5's in Math and Science and a 4 in Reading. I didn't realize what an accomplishment this was until speaking to other public school parents who indicated 3 ' s were the average / norm, and what most of their children received. I'm thankful the boys were able to have their 1st 4 years at FCA -- for the head start on education that FCA gave them as well as lessons in good citizenship, and the Christian basis you provided for them. The boys miss FCA and all of their friends there, but have adapted well to public school. I just wanted to share their success with you as all of you at FCA are a big part of that! Thanks!!"

    "My wife and found the previous two posts amusing. We know the "parent" who penned those words. She posted them from different accounts to damage the reputation of the school. Our children have had a phenomenal experience at Foundation. The teachers here are SO accommodating. They care very deeply for the success of EVERY child. This is a Christ-Centered environment. We have been blessed by this school and will make whatever sacrifice we need to call both of our children Foundation Christian Academy graduates! There are no bullies here. Both of us are active volunteers. We know ALL of our children's teachers by name (and they know us by name as well). Neither of us have experienced any of the issues listed previously. God bless you for looking for a great Christian school in this area. My personal opinion is that you will not find a better one than FCA."

    "STAY AWAY FROM THIS SCHOOL. This school has been the worst schooling mistake I have ever made for my child. There are so many problems with this school, all the teachers there are NOT qualified to be teaching. I couldn't believe how unprofessional this school truly is. Teachers there are very sarcastic , mock students , get angry when asked questions , bully , inattentive and do not communicate well with parents. This school claims to have a safe and christian environment , which is not a true statement. Bullying is a problem at this school, students and teachers there are both guilty of it. Staff and teachers play favorites unimaginably. Administration does not deal with these issues as they should. STAY AWAY from the middle and high school program. It never failed to disappoint me this year . It was a complete waste of my 6,500$ ."
