    "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."

    "Our family has been apart of FCA for eleven years. Our children have had the most compassionate and loving teachers a parent can ask for. Teachers who go above and beyond what any parent would expect. They have grown spiritually as well as academically. Yes, there have been changes and bumps in the road but we know God is the head of this school and church. With leaders like Pastor Jones, a supportive school board we know God is the head of this ministry. We will embrace the changes and support the Lead Pastor and administration. We look forward to what God has in store. Jesus will always be our common core and we will never compromise that. To God be the Glory!"

    "Two of my children are enrolled at FCA and have been very happy there! Each child is treated like an individual and not a number . The teachers and staff truly care about the students . Mrs. Koch is a special education teacher who puts so much time and energy into the kids and really knows how to connect with them ! They teach Christian values which is important in this changing world . To be a realist, there have been a few bumps in the road which is to be expected with every school , no school is perfect. The main thing is that the school constantly is striving for excellence and is not afraid to embrace change. All decisions are made with tthe best interest of the students in mind . The parents are very excited that there is a new dean of students, Sara Jacob who started a few months ago. She is truly amazing, has fresh ideas and is a pivotal addition!! What is also good is that she has a teaching background. FCA has such a bright future ahead! I want my kids to be a part of it ."

    "Years ago, FCA had a GREAT reputation. The school was academically impressive and it had a Christian staff that was professional, state certified and compassionate toward the students. The school was a Christian community of people who cared. It truly was a ministry of the church. Currently, parents enroll their children based on the reputation from the past.Soon, they pull them out because of the deterioration in quality of the education. Poor decisions have been made and the school has declined.A "new building" doesn't meet the needs of the children.Parents are not heard.Inconsistent, illogical discipline occurs.Students are not performing well on state testing. Tutoring for good students is required outside of the school. Good leadership and teachers who are called to teach in a Christian school make the difference. Unfortunately, in the past few years we have seen a revolving door of administration, teachers and students. It has not been good. Bringing in international students for extra money to support the church is not going to resolve the problem. Sadly, we must pull our family out after many years of involvement. We can no longer recommend this school to our friends."
