I went to faith 3 years ago because it has a Christian environment, great test scores from their past senior classes and a strong boys basketball program which is important to my son. The boys basketball team has been great for my son coming from a public middle school. They are taught to work hard
... Read more and be disciplined. By what I can observe they are the best basketball program in Mobile overall. Academics are good but like all schools have good, average and below avg teachers. The teachers have free tutoring after school which has helped alot. As a black family we have felt welcomed and never treated any different than anyone else. For the money the good far outweighs any negatives. To me the negatives are too much homework (3 hours a night on average), poor menu for lunches (all junk food, fried foods), class size is sometimes an issue and not enough "fun" activities for students like a prom.

My child attends Faith Academy and the only real complaint I have is the lack of nutritious options for the lunch menu. Giving the students sodas, ice cream, chips, cookies, cheeseburger, and FF for lunch is really like killing them slowly. It's ridiculous in this day and age with all we know about

Preschool program is fine. Kindergarten on up, reconsider the curriculum. My child attended kindergarten here and transferred to public school for first grade. Th kindergarten student/teacher ratio in public school is smaller and the curriculum is of a higher standard. My second child attended kindergarten

I disagree with the review below as Faith is the most diverse private Christian school in Mobile County. The school is designed for and very accomodating to working parents, and compared to other parochial private schools in Mobile, the tution is quite reasonable. Their handling of the well publicized

Faith Academy is an abomination! It is one of the most segregated and critical schools in the city of Mobile. I had to remove my 10, 15,and 17 year old children from that school because of the way the teachers treat students of a certain race. I would NOT recommend this school to anyone who is against

This school has one of the best band programs in a private school in the entire South East. Band director David Pryor has the vision to challenge the kids to perform well and compete nationally. They consistently get superior ratings. They recently played by invitation at Carnegie Hall. The athletic
... Read more programs are excellent but challenged in recent time due to growing into larger conferences. Proud tradition of winning.. including soccer. Academically, they challenge kids to excel (that includes homework). The goal of education is to LEARN. Excellent teachers. My child received a full academic SCHOLARSHIP to college. Those that complain here are often offended by one-off circumstances and post 'revenge reviews'. Don't be fooled. This is one of the best private schools in the state with depth in academics, music, sports and Christian atmosphere. The price is very competitive with other local, higher priced but less accomplished schools. Don't pass this by. Read less
