    "My experience with enrollment with Foundation Christian Academy was less than Excellence that they pride themselves to be. This school seemed to be the perfect fit for a child with learning disabilities with small class sizes and a cozy small environment. Our experience during the application process was very unprofessional and lasted for almost two weeks with no communication or returned emails within Administration. Unfortunately, after observing this lack of detail to our family, and zero follow through we pulled our application. To date, not one person in Administration has called to inquire why we did not complete our application process. That speaks volumes to us as parents, and displays a lack of attention to detail within their staff. This school did not seem to have any teachers on staff with a ESE background for support, nor the facilities to accommodate a child with learning disabilities. Although the experience at the time was disheartening and frustrating, it was a blessing in disguise for our family."

    "Our daughter attends Foundations Christian Academy in Davie, and she loves it! FCA offers a nurturing environment with a balanced academic curriculum. Its great to be able to leave our child and go to work with a peace of mind that our 3 year old daughter is in great hands, and is being cared for in a loving Christian environment."

    "I'm so in love with everything at FCA! Classes have always been challenging & creative & keep getting better. They have music, art, & PE. I volunteer lots & know everyone.Teachers are friendly to parents,students & each other & love their job! The principal is very involved. I see her visiting classrooms & getting to know students. She is very loving & hugs on the kids. She has a kind, Christian demeanor. I've seen her be lovingly, firm when appropriate with students & even with an obnoxious parent that was trying to bully other parents to volunteer for things she wanted & a disorganized parent that wanted to be in control. The principal cleverly restructured the PTF in a manner that allowed more parents to volunteer & have leadership roles. My kids don't play sports but I have gone to watch a few of the games. I have seen the principals, teachers, office staff & custodians at games. They cheer on the kids by name. I don't have children in middle or high school but I will next year. I've gotten to know & really like those teachers. They care about the decisions the students make outside of school & take time to get to know them & ask about their lives. My kids are happy! So am I!"

    "I have two children who have attended FCA for 2 years and love it. I have been very happy to see that God is at the center of their education daily. I disagree with a reviewer that the school focuses on the lower students. On average, the classes are at least a semester ahead of grade level. My children's teachers have always challenged them at their advanced ability level and I have also seen the teachers give tutoring and reinforcement of skills to students who struggle. The class sizes are small and allow the teachers to really get ot know and love each student."

    "My children attended this school for elementary. Overall, I have been dissatisfied with the quality of education my kids have received. The staff turnover is very high. Although the tuition is competitive with the other private schools in the area, there is a shortage of money coming in to fund extracurricular activities, supplies for the classroom, teacher salaries. The principals lack the experience and knowledge necessary to effectively run a school. They presented themselves as very unprofessional. The parent association was dismantled a few years ago by the principal. I have never heard of a school not having a parent run association before. Although this is a newer school with fewer students we were hopeful it would grow enough to allow our kids to attend middle and high school. This has not been the case. Every year a large number of students do not return. That speaks volumes about the overall satisfaction of parents. The sports programs were a huge disappointment. This school relies solely on parent volunteers to coach games during the work day. If no one volunteers for the job they will cancel. The principals and teachers never attended any of the games."
