Thinking of enrolling my children in Trinity Christian Academy. Any thoughts out there on this school? I can't find any reviews and was just curious if anyone might know how the school might be. Thanks for any comments.

If you google that school you will see nothing but great reviews. I have heard so many good things I was actually going to take my child there but I liked an in home day care better. But when I called to talk to them they were nothing but nice to me so I would all around recommend it.

Check with the public schools and ask them how Trinity Christian Academy students rate grade-level wise when they try to integrate back into public schools.

Anything beats the chaos of public school. Go for it.

Trinity has a good program. It works especially well for students who are having a hard time staying on grade level..whether it is behind or ahead. I've known several children who have went there and love it. Kids will be the first to tell you what they think when it comes to a school too!

Thanks for all of the comments. I did "google" the school, but couldn't find any reviews? I guess I must have done something wrong? Anyway, I will try it again.

I enrolled my child there, and she LOVED IT! I did too. I could not beleive how fast she excelled (sp). They also incorprate the Bible into all the lessons, which was a plus for me too. Kids now days need all the spiritual help they can get. In my opinion Trinity is the best school, out of all the schools in this area.

Thanks for the info. Does your child still attend classes at Trinity?

Getting ahead is having a hard time staying on grade level? I hope the children "who have went there" learned more grammar than you did.

It's a documented fact that students of private schools or home schooled students far better off learning better and do much better socialy in the long run.. Paris schools have nothing to offer but the same old thing.. if your in your in and if your not you not....

Where did you get your info for that assertion? Please post some sort of source to back that claim up.

PISD Resident: I totally think you are full of it! My parents took me out of a public school and put me in private school for a few years. When I finally talked them into putting me back into my beloved public school, I didn't have any social skills to speak of,.. I was so shy I couldn't speak to other kids my age without feeling embarrassment.. I would have panic attacks if the teacher made me get in front of the class to read things to the students.. ALL of this was because I was in private school for a year and a half! We were only allowed to sit at our little cubicles and do our "paces" alone. We couldn't socialize with any of the other students at all or we would get what they called "demerits".. If you think that is the proper way to bring your child up causing them not even to know how to act around peers their age, not to have any friends.. put them into a huge state of depression.. then be my guest! As for academics.. the only thing I remember learning was having to memorize the bible lines at a time.. When I was put back into public school, I was sooo far behind in English, Science, & Math it took me 2 years to catch up to my other peers and be on the same grade level. Keep your kids in public school!

Hmmm sounds like to problem was your parents did not put you in an enviroment that was socialy/educational for you. Maybe you did not try your best while in the private school ? Maybe you should have tried harder.... Where did you go to school "Cooper" ?

How old is your child? My daughter started at 2 and went there throught 2nd grade. When she entered 3rd at NL she was reading on a 6th grade level. I can answer some questions for you if you'd like.

Thanks for your response. I have two daughters who are ages 6 and 9. One is in Kindergarten and the other is in third. They are doing fine and I have no problems with public school. Just thought about changing to a private, Christian-based school. My understanding is that they go 7 hours a day, have certified teachers, and use ABEKA, which is a Christian homeschooling curriculum? Do you know if this info is correct? Any other info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks again. I may have other questions if you don't mind?

I think I know what school you went to. I knew several kids enrolled there, and they say what you say about it.

I don't think Trinity Christian Academy is anything like that. I've been in the building and it looks more like a school environment, just smaller. I saw in today's paper that Dr. Gary Ballard is the new superintendent. Can't go wrong there. I've been to schools of various sizes and always learned best at the smaller ones.

Overall, private Christian schools are much more healthy psychologically for kids nowadays than the drug infested, crime-ridden public schools.
