We moved to Baton Rouge from another state and heard horror stories about the public school system. We felt pressured to send our kids to a private school. We chose FCA b/c the cost is cheaper than most other private schools and while the teachers have been friendly, I have to say that there are definitely
... Read more some things that I don't agree with & need improvement. One of my children is in the preschool and she had been bitten, hit, bruised and scratched by other kids and I never received an incident report, not even a word about it. One of the girls that bit her and was biting other kids was allowed to stay even though their policy on biting calls for expulsion. However, my mom is also a school teacher in the public sector in Florida and says that my oldest is ahead of her kids at the same level in the public sector. Most employees have multiple roles. That's how they save money and in return how we as parents save money. I think they are trying to give the kids the best education without breaking the parents who want to send their kids to a private school. Just b/c it's Christian doesn't mean families that send their kids there are, so just expect some of the same behavior. Read less

FCA WAS VERY UNPROFESSIONAL. MY DAUGHTER WAS ENROLLED IN THE PRE-SCHOOL PART AND WAS TREATED VERY UNFAIRLY. THE CAREGIVER WASNT CERTIFIED AND SHE EVEN ARGUED WITH ME. I ASKED TO SEE VIDEO OF MY DAUGHTER AND THEY DENIED ME THE RIGHT, BECAUSE THEY WERE CLEARLY COVERING FOR THEIR SO CALLED CAREGIVER. SHE

BUT INSTEAD THEY DENIED ME THE RIGHT TO GIVE A STATEMENT AND SEE VIDEO AND SAID MY CHILD COULD NO LONGER ATTEND THE SCHOOL. VERY VERY BAD EXPERIENCE. I WOULDNT RECOMMEND THIS PLACE TO ANYBODY. FCA IS A JOKE AN SO IS THEIR ADMINSTRATION, THAT ONLY WENT OFF OF WHAT THEIR TEACHER SAID BECAUSE I QUESTIONED HER CAREGIVING TO MY CHILD. MY CHILD WOULD COME HOME EVERYDAY HYSTERICALLY CRYING. THEY SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED TO HAVE A PRESCHOOL PROGRAM. NONE OF THEM ARE QUALIFIED. Read less

The Louisiana Board of Education needs to be called in to FCA for an audit. The only qualification for JSM to have this school they say is to have a principal with a master's degree. They have a figure head in place who has a master's degree in sociology, but nowhere will you find anyone in the administration
... Read more who has any qualifications to head any school and the principal is rarely onsite as he has many other ministry responsibilites besides overseeing FCA. The academics are alarming and many students in the high school are not proficient at reading comprehension or writing ability. No testing is done to incoming students to ensure a college prep. cirriculum can be used so therefore, many poor students are in the classroom. Discipline is also an out of control problem and the administration doesn't have the training, education, etc to properly assist teachers with students. The professionalism at FCA does not exist.
