School Reviews

Back Creek Christian Academy has been a great school for our children. Not only are they getting a quality education but one centered around a Christian worldview. The teachers are highly qualified and care deeply about each student.

This school is a place where my daughter feels included and wanted. The teachers and staff want to set each student up for success! Use of technology is intentional and supports the curriculum, which is closely aligned with the common core. Class size are often larger than 15, but assistants and parent volunteers are available to help bridge those gaps. Back Creek is committed to an excellent education taught through a Christian lens. Refreshing!
