Jacksonville Christian Academy Ratings & Reviews
They are great working with my kids to catch them up from public school !
I, along with my brother, sister and cousins all were students at Jacksonville christian academy. There is an incredibly long list of faults in this school that I do not know where to begin. The lunches are repulsive, the teachers say whatever is on their mind, the curiculum is the worst I've ever seen, the teachers belittle you and ONLY teach the students to fear God. They will control the students life outside of school, the students don't learn how to use a computer, they don't like it if you are different, the faculties children just so happens to have the best grades and plays the most in sports events and the dictator of a principal is doing an absolute disservice to every single student that has been to that school by keeping it open and accepting new students. It is exasperating that they keep the doors open of this terrible place. The only way I would send my children here would be for severe punishment. Even that would be extreme. Do us all a favor Tommy, and close your doors.
I attended JCA from Kindergarten-12th grade, and after experiencing the close minded "holier than thou" attitude, I can honestly say I left the school having accomplished nothing but receive a diploma I feel I did not even put the proper work in for. The teachers constantly complain about their low salary, bring students down with rude remarks, as well as gossip about other students. A long with teachers being unqualified to fill their position, academics are a complete joke, and I feel I could have learned more in a year at a public school than I did in my entire high school years at JCA. The school lunches are overly priced and the athletic programs could receive a "boost." At JCA, I feel I did not receive the "real" high school experience with the lack of privileges allowed. We never received open lunch, free periods, or any typed of privileges even our senior year. Teachers are more infatuated in what you do outside of school (i.e. making sure you're not doing drugs, drinking, or having premarital sex) than actually teaching their subjects. I would not recommend this school to anybody. DO NOT send your children here. It is one of the worst schools in the state.
All the teachers do is complain to the students about how they are underpaid and making a sacrifice by teaching there, as if it is the student's fault . They constantly gossip about the students and put them down. They will shove the bible down your throat and constantly condemn you and ridicule you for not living up to a certain standard. It's a good thing to teach about God and the bible but not the way they do it. I do not recommend this school.
I cannot begin to express the appreciation I have for the teachers & principal at JCA. It is so comforting knowing that my child is being taught by teachers that love him. I love having achievement tests that I can tell how well he is doing. Last year he scored high on his SAT and I contribute it to the teachers that taught him. I would highly recommend JCA to any parent - elementary or high school. I believe they are on the right path!!
