School Reviews

Aquidneck Island Christian Academy is a classical model Christian school that emphasizes God at the center of all that is taught. If you are looking for a Christian school with incredible academic prowess, this is it! The staff is friendly, competent, patient, encouraging, loving, and genuine. The headmaster is extremely approachable and selfless. He has given his time and energy to this school for over 20 years. Several students rank high nationally in academics and some have also received national merit scholarships. Did you know that Albert Einstein, Ted Turner, Steve Jobs, and Joe Paterno were all classically taught students? The list goes on and on. The best part about all of this, it is not out of reach because of price. If you want or need a private school for your child but don''t think you can afford. Think again. There is assistance if you need and qualify. Money is not the center of this school in any way, the children and young adults are the focus. BTW this great school has grades K-12 Perfect school for military families that are stationed at the Newport Navy Base.
