22 Parent Reviews for Christian Academy Of Indiana
This school is only interested in taking your money and not so much in educating students. The teachers and administrators are quite content to sit by, watching students fail without alerting parents or attempting to help their students succeed. I am a proponent of private school education, but CAI

My 6th grader has two hours of homework a night- way too much for the age. My child went to CAI for elementary and enjoyed it and I thought the elementary teachers were great. However, the middle school is a joke- poor teaching, too much homework and no leadership from administrators. The same teachers
... Read more that teach the 8th graders teach the 6th graders and evidently can't make the distinction between the two. The majority of the work is nothing but busy work. I've been very dissappointed with the lack of flexibility on part of the school. Also, if you pay the tution and don't like the school they stick you with the full bill for the entire year. Not a great way to run a school. Read less

CAI is the most wonderful school. The only drawback being the tuition ($5000.00 + per child). The kids are pushed to excel academically as well as taught responsibility, respect, and self-control. My kids have been there for 4 years and we pray that we will be able to continue until graduation. The teachers

What a fabulous school!! I couldn't say more great things about CAI. From the first-class facilities to the warm and friendly staff, to the Gospel shared openly and honestly, you won't find better in Christian Education. I won't send my kids anywhere else!

Our daughter attended the last 2 years of high school here and it was absolutely the best 2 years of school she has ever had. We just regret not sending her sooner. The staff and teachers are the very best. They truly care about the students and their future. I cannot recommend them enough. We are

Christian Academy is the place to be if you are looking for a Christ centered education. I can tell you coming from a public school, my 8th grade son told me after being here just 8 weeks HE wishes we had found this school sooner. In his words, 'The teachers have complete control of the classroom and

Coming from a teenager (and who was NOT happy about changing schools) I was thrilled! The school is among the very top in ISTEP scores also. Their extra curricular/sports program is growing every year. It is not a state funded school, it relies on donations and parent support so it takes a little longer. We will stay here until all my kids graduate! Read less
