Erie First Christian Academy Reviews

Almost all of the teachers are amazing. They are very supportive and willing to help each student separately to be sure that everyone succeeds. I have gotten help outside of school from teachers on many occasions and it definitely improved my learning experience. Classes are usually small, especially as an upperclassman, meaning classes can become even more specialized to individual student needs and be more of a discussion than a lecture. Unfortunately, due to small student size, there is less diversity of students, and some more expensive resources such as shop class and some sports facilities are unavailable. Anyway Erie is the best!

Erie First Christian Academy prepares students very well for college, and also makes sure to update students about opportunities like scholarships frequently. EFCA is also a fairly competitive school, though like all schools, there are high and low achievers. All the teachers are nice and genuinely want to help the students; they make you feel comfortable. The workload isn’t heavy if you have good time management, and more often than not, I find myself with a fair amount of time for myself. School facilities like the library are useful, and the guidance counselors are all friendly and open. I would late this school five star any day!
Erie First Christian Academy is a very academically competitive school. For the most part, everyone is committed to their schoolwork and tries their best to succeed in class. This competitiveness is not necessarily cut-throat, but in some instances it can be. The teachers are phenomenal. They take pride in the success of their students, and most enjoy getting to know students personally. Kids can be different, but it's not hard to find your group. There are opportunities for many interests, and people usually find friend groups from within sports and clubs. The school is an overall Hit!
