SJCA, is currently my child's school. They improved in the building located at Fort Pierce Campus. The Pastor and their staff are well manner and very polite. They could improve keeping a full time janitorial. (The classrooms are a little bit smelly!). Overall, they are doing an ok job in education.
My child start this school about 3 months ago. I had no problems until one day the school called my work around 3pm to let me know that my 3 year old was no longer welcome to there school. Do to being written up 3 times today. I fell its very unfair. My child had no problems prior to this day. When I picked up my child and ask to speak to the Pastor she was to busy and I would have to make an appt to speak to her . Very sad but would never tell anyone about this school again. Very unhappy
Both of our children attended Saint James Christian Academy this year and were pleased with what they had to offer. The use an accredited academic platform and have a very caring staff. They are growing in enrollment and are adding positions as needed. From a Christian school standpoint I believe they offer just the right amount of religious teaching and more-so a healthy environment for the children. If your children excelled beyond their level as ours did, they encourage their advancement through the curriculum with parental knowledge & approval. They are looking into purchasing a larger facility, however they make good use of the one they have. If you want a huge public school and all of the nonsense you get in the St Lucie School District then you have many to choose from, but if a safe, caring wholesome, healthy environment with a Christian flair, this school is well worth the investment - and peace of mind as parents.
I was very disappointed in this school. For a school thats based on christian principles this school displays much hyprocrosy as most of the staff are prejudice. The education standard to me is very poor coming from another county I felt that my child made two steps backwards being enrolled in this instuition. School also need more professional staff, the school premises needs to be better cared for (please pave the yard).
