Eden Christian Academy Reviews

The culture at Eden is homogenous and borderline dogmatic. Beliefs other than conservative, christian ones are discarded as 'secular' and worthless. While there are some amazing educators who are trying their best to help students, these voices are outweighed by the majority of the staff who are often narrow-minded and will condone, if not actively support racist, xenophobic, homophobic, and/or classist dialog. Further, students whose parents are connected or give funds to the school are often given preferential treatment (I should know, I was one of such students). Overall, not a great place for diversity of thought or diversity in general.

Eden is nearly entirely white, upper-middle class. Although the school has been trying to change its image over the past few years, the reality is that minority students will likely struggle to find their place here.

It is my perception that Eden is trying to teach its students what to think, and not how to think. Along with a diploma, students receive a mistrust of the scientific community at large, and a rejection of the world of secular higher education. In Bible class, the majority opinion is bold and swift, while the dissenters sometimes don't have the courage to speak up. I have sometimes wondered if there were any dissenters. In science, whole fields of study such as evolution and cosmology are cast off as meaningless, without any more than a cursory view of straw man evidence. In political science, any central- or left-leaning ideas are quickly attacked by peers and teachers alike. Students fear the very ideas they haven't even been exposed to properly.
It's small class sizes allow for students to be more connected to their classmates. The teachers seem to care about their students and are willing to go the extra mile to help them. The food which is available to order for lunch is also very good. The main frustration I had was the lack of consistency in the administration. There was no clear system of enforcing the rules, and it seemed like the handbook didn't apply. Many punishments seemed to be given at the whim of those who have them, and those that were listed were not enforced. There were some specific classes in which the teachers didn't seem to be qualified to teach the subject. It seemed like they used teachers of other subjects to fill in for the subjects they don't have a specialized teacher for. The Christian aspect is demonstrated in the classrooms but not among most students. My fondest memories from my time here was brushing my teeth in the school bathroom every day and discussing kung Fu Panda lore with my friends.
