I just wanted to say a big THANK YOU to all of you for all you do for your students and parents at Praise. This was Justice's first year in school (and away from mommy). I was very nervous and emotional going into this year and didn't know what to expect since it was our first school experience. I never in a million years would have guessed that it would have gone as well as it did. Mrs. White, thank you for all your sweet hugs & kind words. Mr. White, thank you for your guidance and warm greetings in the mornings. Mrs. Mattick, thank you for answering my questions and pointing me in the right direction. Mrs. Mitchell, thank you for your kindness on the phone, email and when I checked in at the office. This isn't just a school, it is a church family and a life family. There is no place I would rather my children go to school. I Pray that God will continue to keep us there.
I also wanted to let you all know what a God Send Mrs. Jackie and Ms. Rebecca were for our family. They are two of the most special women of God I have ever met. I feel like I have gained two wonderful friends this year. The students absolutely love them. Justice cried when school was over and the first people he mentioned that he would miss were Mrs. Jackie and Ms. Rebecca followed by his friends. I am very protective of my children and I have to say they have gained my trust & then some. Justice has learned so much this year spiritually and educationally.
Again, thank you, thank you, thank you all from the bottom of my heart. Please give Mrs. Jackie & Ms. Rebecca an extra "sticker" for being A++++ teachers as well.
Blessings to all-

Praise Academy isn't just a school. It is an essential part of our lives. My children have received an on target, top-notch education, with Jesus Christ as the center of everything. This foundation has been instilled in my children and it is priceless.
Each teacher that has been a part of our lives has not only been the upmost professional, but has also shown my children love, care, and concern. As a parent, I couldn't ask for more.

I'm always amazed at how God brings people and places into our lives to bless us. The teachers and staff of Praise Academy have been special blessings in our lives. Our grandchild is receiving a wonderful education with love, care, and concern. Everyone at Praise works together to help each child achieve his/her potential. The love for the students is so obvious.
We are so thankful that our grandchild is in this wonderful Christian environment with people who love the Lord and live that life as an example to the students. This has made a great impact on our entire family.
We are very grateful for Praise Academy, and that our grandchild is getting to have this wonderful experience of learning and growing in Christ.
Thank you for all your impact on so many lives.

I have entrusted the education and training of my 3 children to Praise Academy for the last 10 years. It is our intention and desire that our youngest daughter will be able to remain at Praise Academy to complete her diploma in 5 years. Praise Academy has partnered with me in the Biblical mandate to “train up a child in the way that he should go” and has not sought to replace or circumvent me as the primary person God has called to raise them in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. This has added to my trust and respect over these 10 years. Praise is doctrinally conservative and Biblically sound which assures and comforts me that all teaching and training will be conducted in a balanced Christian world view. Compassion, empathic regard, and genuine interest in the strengthening of my children’s foundational learning have become the ‘standard operating procedure’ from the faculty and staff of Praise Academy. Competitive athletics and accredited academics offer the total package a committed and concerned parent could desire for their child in a Christian environment…Thank you Praise for what you have given us!

I have 3 boys who attend Praise Academy. They have been there since they were 3 years old. The principal Mrs. White is the most wonderful loving, strong, smart and dedicated person I have ever encountered in my experience as a student growing up and through college. This school is a wonderful Christian school where the teachers know your child, love your child and teach your child not only an above average education but to learn about God and the Bible builds values, morals and respect my children will have as a foundation for their character for life.

Great school, all 3 children attended from k-3 thru 12th grade. Full ACSI and SACS accreditation, new administrator coupled with energetic principal give children a special self-worth with academic excellence.
