Praise Temple Christian Academy cares about the academic knowledge of my children as well as their spiritual wellbeing. The teachers are patient and work hard to help the children understand what they are working on. They are also there for them in any need. They pray for their students and want nothing but the best for them. As a parent of 3 boys, that is important to me. I am thankful that 2 years ago we were able to put our children at PTCA. I would recommend this school to anyone seek a Private Christian school in the Groveland area.

My son started Praise kids his Pre K year. He was 4 years old. At that time I was a new believer. It was an awesome year. Both of us learned so much. I was learning scriptures and so much more, right along with him. I always felt like they really loved teaching both of us about JESUS. His first-grade year was also great, I was amazed by how well my son was taught to read (he was reading like he was in high school). It was his sweet teacher's 2nd year of teaching and she was determined. During this year we could see that something was a little different about Dawayne. When he was in 2nd grade he was diagnosed with High functioning Autism. I Like to think that he has taught me and his teachers a lot about Autism. However, the teacher and staff continued to give him all their best. Now he is in 5th Grade at PTCA. he loves his school, he loves all of his teacher. I continued to be amazed by How well he has done over the years at Praise Temple. I am truly grateful for all they have taught and continue to teach the both of us academically and more importantly about JESUS!

I appreciate the fact that 3 of my kids have been able to attend Praise Temple Christian Academy. Being we don't live as close as most of the other students we have looked into other schools closer to us. In the end we chose to remain at PTCA due to the attentiveness of the staff, the way they truly care for our kids, the education they are receiving, and also the fact that the kids really enjoy going there. Two of my kids come from a public school background and my oldest did return to that last year as a freshman. He was not way behind others in his grade and he has done fairly well. As a child who has experienced both public and private schools, he has requested to return to PTCA. My youngest is excited to be starting this coming school year as a Kindergartener. No school is perfect but if you're looking for one that will love your kid, pour into them both educational and Christian values, and encourages them to be and do their very best then this is a great school for them. We have been with PTCA for 4 years now and we love our Tiger family.

My child loves her school. We have been blessed to send our children here, some have graduated. They are professional and instill the values of a Christ centered life into our children. It is nice to be a part of Praise Temple family. We have a new facility that is awesome.

I attended this school from Kindergarten up to Senior Year. Praise Temple Taught me so much not only on the educational side of it but also the facts of life and believe in our Lord Jesus. They always give a warm welcome with open arms and really take care of their students and families. Being a student and Volleyball Player at PTCA was one of the best highlights of my life and I could never thank them enough!

If you live outside the United States, choosing an American private school can be a confusing process. Here is an overview of the process.
Many people thought vouchers would never amount to much. Not only have they amounted to a great deal more than anybody could have thought, but vouchers have encouraged several more education choices to flourish.
Now that school has safely reopened, what can we parents do to support and encourage the schools we care about so much?
