School Reviews

We have been at ACA for 3 years and have been very pleased. For us, they have the perfect balance of challenging academics, caring teachers and a loving Christ centered environment. ACA focuses on helping children achieve their best academically (My daughter is in first grade and reads fluently with amazing annunciation and characterization and as a bonus writes beautifully in cursive) while also focusing on character. I love that my daughter doesn''t experience the type of social pressure that exists so early in public school. They make it cool to be kind =) Also, they are very accommodating for allergies which is not a struggle we face but I know how scary that is for many families.

We are in our first year of the ACA program, and we could not be more pleased with all aspects of this school. The quality of academics of a previous preschool pales in comparison to this program, the teachers and the faclities are amazing (I''m proud of my children''s school), and I recommend this school to anyone. Both of my preschoolers are exposed to music, art, and sports apropos to their age (2 & 4 year old class). The Christmas program was unbelievable. The "classics" were sung, and I loved it that they went into that direction. Also, they had them displayed so beautifully upon the stage, it choked me up a bit to see my little one so prominent and confident. My children''s "take home" work and work they did at school is "their" work and not a bunch of cutouts from a stencil machine. I like that because to me art at this age is how I see my child progressing,, as well. I work closely with both ofmy children on attention to detail in "coloring" as I know this is the stepping stone to excellent work in the three R''s, and it seems I am on the same page as my children''s teachers. I simply can not say enough good things about it. I feel at home at this school, and I highly recommend it to anyone who wants an amazing education for their child in a Christ based program.

"As third year parents of two preschoolers at Alpharetta Christian Academy, we are looking forward to our fourth year next year. We love the school for numerous reasons but the main one is all of the teachers that have taught our children, are so nice, sweet and loving which is very important at this young age. They treat my children as their own and many are parents of multiple children themselves. They teach the basics (letters, numbers, colors, calendar, etc...) in a fun and creative environment with lots of art and crafts projects as well as developing their motor skills. In addition, the school has weekly activities that include science, creative movement, music and chapel. But, the most exciting for preschool age children are the yearly visits from fire fighters, police dogs, a trackless train, a huge tee pee and bouncy houses. They also have annual Muffins with Mom and Donuts with Dad plus a Christmas program that shouldn''t be missed. The staff and administration are just as nice, friendly, loving and helpful too. We highly recommend this preschool to any family."
