Intimate, attentive, academically and behaviorly enriching, this school packs a power punch for education. Initially, I had one child in attendance. AODC provided a wonderful opportunity for my child to expand his mind intellectually, his heart socially, and his soul spiritually without placing undue
... Read more restrictions on his age. The curriculum and educational foundation was so sturdy that despite staffing problems initially, my son had a great experience and showed remarkable confidence and academic prowess. The experience was so great that I enrolled a second son into the school. His experience last year was a repeat of excellence. Both of my sons are academically strong and I think the environment that does not inhibit their growth potential is the best for them. Kudos to the administration and staff for being a God-send.

I have a child who attends this school and I would recommend it to any and all parents looking for their child to learn academics. The school, from the administration down to the teachers believes that each child is a 'child of destiny' that can do all things through Christ which strengthens them.
... Read more This is not just words. I have personally seen how they have taken time with each child to ensure they are learning the material. They have patience, understanding, and most of all a passion for our youth. I read the other review and just had to comment because it is not what I have experienced. As the grades go higher, there are less children, so they must combine some grades, which helps them because it they get more one on one time. It also prepares the lower grade for the work they will be doing next year. Mrs. Wolfe Read less

I'm writing this review to inform parents about this wonderful school. My son has been attending this school since Kindergarden. When he was in first grade I pulled him out due to financial reasons. That year he attended public school. That was the Biggest mistake; I made when it comes to my son's education.

My son will continue his education at ADOC Christian Academy until he finishes eigth grade! :) Read less

Pros The school uses the A-Beka curriculum which works well with the students, especially primary grades. Class sizes are small so teachers have a chance to work one on one with students. Cons The office is hardly ever staffed and there is usually no one around that can answer questions. The
... Read more administration seems to be primarily concerned with collecting tuition payments as opposed to being dedicated to the overall development of children. There are no extracurricular activities. Everything is very last minute: they are horrible at getting information to parents regarding special events, activities, field trips and school closings. They also have poor bookkeeping practices. The only positive thing I can say about this school is that the academic instruction is very strong. However, administrative issues and poor management skills overshadows anything academically the school has to offer. I would not recommend this school. Read less
