    Keystone School

    • San Antonio, TX
    • 36 reviews
    High School Junior:It's a very good school. This is my seventh year at Keystone, and I know for sure that I would not want to be anywhere else. I have met incredible people, both classmates and faculty, and I'm so grateful for all of the experiences I've gotten to have so far. Keystone has allowed me to go to places I would have never been able to go to otherwise (Yellowstone National Park, Olympic National Park, etc.) and I've received a great education.

    Saint Mary's Hall

    • San Antonio, TX
    • 26 reviews
    High School Junior:My school is an academically challenging school that provides a very strong foundation for college. Even though the classes are challenging and it may seem that all you ever do when you get home is homework, the teachers get to know you one on one because its a relatively small school and they go out of their way to help us, even when it's almost midnight and you have a question on the homework!

    Trinity Christian Academy

    • San Antonio, TX
    • 32 reviews
    Niche User:I love the school not only because I found my best friends there, but I made connections and learned things from some great teachers that will last a lifetime. School shouldn't just be about the social hour and sports, but those were the main experiences that I gained from the school. The retreats are always a plus to attend every year and they should never stop, because they have a way of bringing the student body together like never before.

    The Christian School at Castle Hills

    • San Antonio, TX
    • 58 reviews
    High School Senior:The superintendent is determined to give the students at my school a top quality education that will prepare us for college and the work force. He has turned our school around since he has taken over and I am more proud to be part of it. We are able to have more pride in our school because the teachers are held to a higher standard as are the students. The athletic department has also been a big part of my high school and I have enjoyed being on the team and the team captain for the past few years. We all play hard, but we work at playing with grace and mercy as well.

    New Braunfels Christian Academy

    • New Braunfels, TX
    • 17 reviews
    High School Senior:My time at NBCA is something I'll never forget. I have had fantastic relationships with all of my teachers and each of them genuinely care about the academic and holistic success of the students. They and the faculty members make themselves available whenever you need them, even if it's just to talk. My one and only complaint would be the facilities, but I understand that a privately funded institution will not have the grandeur of a federally funded one. Because it is such a small school you really cultivate amazing and close knit relationships with everyone in your class and those in other grades. The environment is so inviting and I am proud to say that I will be graduating from NBCA this spring and wouldn't have it any other way.

    San Antonio Christian School

    • San Antonio, TX
    • 53 reviews
    Niche User:We've been here now 3 years and this is most likely our last year due to the academics. They are definitely behind the curve with other private schools and even public schools. The Christian aspect is wonderful but the teachers are hit or miss. After 3 years I'm now wishing we had just put our child into the highly ranked public school we're zoned to. Many families have left due to this reason alone and the ones that have left in prior years are all saying that their kids are behind in other schools. So I have to ask myself, "What am I paying for?"

    Parent:I love the family atmosphere. The principal is fair with zero tolerance for unbecoming behavior that does not bring honor to God. He leads by example

    Cornerstone Christian Schools

    • San Antonio, TX
    • 89 reviews
    Niche User:I knew everyone in the school some great some not so good. I've made many friends that will last a life time. Just for the way that the teachers encouraged me to be better than I thought I could be, would make me want to go there again.
