    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Faith Christian Academy full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    It's a great place to work. Great location. Great co workers. Great parents. The atmosphere is genuine and sincere. Everyone is always willing to help eachother. There's a real solid impact on children's lives.

    Cons

    That there aren't more of these schools around the country. It's a small privately owned school. So that lends it self to not having the resources that other school have access to.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management is to keep doing what your doing. Continue to focus on tbe Word of God. There is always going to be a need for a true Christian worldview. It's an amazing and difficult task that you have undertaken and you are doing a great job.

    I worked at Faith Christian Academy full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Students are amazing and very willing to learn.

    Cons

    Administration micromanages very single thing. Once the administrator map quested each teachers' route home to ensure they were driving the most efficient route.

    Advice to Management

    Get a grip.

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Faith Christian Academy full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Most of the teaching staff are committed to the students.

    Cons

    Lack of funds.
    Lack of vision.
    Lack of trust of top administration.
    Fear of losing job every year.
    Administration makes decisions that are not in the best interest of the school. Tuition rules. Parents paying tuition for uncertified teachers.

    Advice to Management

    Lacking: keeping educational standards high
    Accepting students for whom we are not equipped to meet their needs, but can accept their tuition.
    Communication is poor.
    No raises. Not paying retirement fund in a timely manner.

    Pros

    Staff communication is great and it gives you experience in dealing with several different kinds of customers. It is one of the reasons why I am so patient and calm when handling situations.

    Cons

    There can be quite a lot of students to take care of at one time and sometimes you end up staying late to make sure all the students get picked up by their parents.

    Advice to Management

    Great communication with staff and a good environment for kids, I would definitely send my future child to this school.

    The work overload that can happen, working at a smaller school, can be discouraging.

    The school is affiliated with a church that is not always knowledgeable about the education profession.
