    Shiloh Christian School

    • Springdale, AR
    • 38 reviews
    High School Senior:When I first came to Shiloh, everyone was very accepting and kind. Because Shiloh is a small school, the students and school faculty have a community type feel. The teacher care about us and show it in asking about our lives, our families, or even our weekends. I have a solid group of friends, and because of the college courses they offer, I feel as though I am prepared for college.

    Little Rock Christian Academy

    • Little Rock, AR
    • 127 reviews
    High School Senior:I love this school. I came here my sophomore year after a tumultuous experience at a public high school. The majority of my schooling has come from public schools, and I must say I definitely prefer the private education system. I did not realize how many educational discrepancies I had from my public school upbringing until I came here. For the first time I have teachers who truly care about me and how well I am doing inside and outside of the classroom. They invest time and effort into me to make sure I receive the best, holistic, education they can provide. The environment is positive and uplifting, and discipline is both fair and just. The faculty and administration live the lives they claim to live, and truly are passionate about the subjects they teach. I feel very blessed and thankful to have the opportunity to attend this school. I will be attending college this fall, and I can honestly say I feel excited and exponentially prepared to do so. I am very grateful for Little Rock Christian Academy and the impact it has made on my educational, intellectual, and spiritual life.

    • Little Rock, AR

    High School Senior:My overall experience is positive everyday I walk through the front doors I feel right and home and there is nowhere else in Little Rock I would rather attend school. I have formed some of the best friendships I could think of and we have all grown into a literal sisterhood that I wouldn't change for the world. I can't wait to continue to go to school with some of these girls for another four years at the University of Arkansas.

    Niche User:I enjoyed my time at SCA, but didn't feel like I was prepared for the real world. We were so protected that going to a state College was a big culture shock. The teachers were great but there were definitely favorites of the administration.
