32 Parent Reviews for Blair Christian Academy

There is absolutely no security. They buzz anyone in and do not even look half the time to see who came in. They find any and every excuse not to be open or dismiss early, yet have no problem charging you full tuition for the month. Staff will look at their wrist watch right in front of your face, ...  Read more

As another school year has ended, I must commend Blair Christian Academy on a job well done. My child has grown so much over this school year, academically, socially, and spiritually. I am so impressed with all that he has learned, the love he received from his teachers, and how the leadership of the ...  Read more

I want to share the great experience that my child and I have had over the past few months at Blair Christian Academy. My child was transferred from a private school in October. At his old school, there was bullying, and no academic stimulation. We both were overwhelmed and stressed during this time. ...  Read more

During the first six months at Blair, we have noticed a major change in our son. His writing skills improved. He s beginning to learn to identify words and read sentences.

Blair Christian Academy's motto is the school children call home, which I have found to be true on so many levels. I have had three children attend the school, with my youngest now in the preschool program. One of the school's strengths is the immense amount of love that is shown to the students. ...  Read more

My child used to go to BCA, from Kindergarten to 1st grade. I would not recommend this school to anybody. The staff is not friendly at all. The teachers are overwhelmed with other duties besides teaching, which makes it hard for them to attend to your child's needs. It's either very hot in the classrooms ...  Read more

I am amazed daily at the progress my niece has made. She has been at BCA since she was a toddler, and she is now going to 1st grade. She is currently beyond a 1st grade reading level. What was even more amazing was listening to a PK4 student read a poem and student address at the graduation ceremony. ...  Read more

We enrolled our son at BCA. We were sceptical at first with the reviews. We know a few people who sent their children to this school and were very pleased. They did say that it is too much fundraising. We can say that we are pleased with the progress our son has made. He's eager to learn and has learned ...  Read more
