Franklin Christian continues to provide such positive experiences each day for our family. Our 2 1/2 year old cannot wait to go to school! The environment is so safe, caring and nurturing. From the moment you walk in the door you know all of the teachers, the director and all staff truly care about your child. The learning experience has been wonderful and I can see the growth in my toddler. The teachers are so detailed with the curriculum and the art projects are very creative and my little one loves music class. The teachers are patient, encouraging and want to see your child thrive and grow. I would highly recommend sending your children to this fabulous school that dedicates themselves to your child. The core values at Franklin Christian are what you want from a school and you can see how they treat each child with love and respect. I am so thankful to have found Franklin Christian and our daughter will continue to grow here for many years to come.
I have had all three of my children attend Franklin Christian Pre-School and would never think of sending them anywhere else! The teachers are all nurturing, attentive and in tune with their students needs. The administrative staff is also very professional and courteous. Franklin Christian played a tremendous role in preparing my children socially, emotionally and academically for elementary school. I would highly recommend them!
Great school, caring leadership and faculty! This school has held a strong track record for the past several decades as one of the premier preschool/kindergartens in Southeast Michigan. I've had the unique opportunity to get to know the founder and core leadership of the school and think the world of the quality of education they promote, as well as their values that they instill within the children who attend. So appreciative to have this group here in the local Birmingham/Bloomfield community.
Our young 5 attended Franklin Christian as a part of their Kindergarten class and I couldn't be more satisfied with the positive experience. She ended the year reading, counting to well over 100, identifying letters and making the corresponding sounds, as well as having a greater interest in learning more about math and science. Even her art skills progressed throughout the year. In addition, their music programs (presented throughout the year) were a joy for my child and all the parents. She is more socially prepared for a classroom than she was at the beginning of the year and was taught how to behave appropriately in a school setting. The staff (all of them!) are top notch professionals. Overall a stellar educational experience!
I have four children at CLA, all of whom have been enrolled at CLA since kindergarten. My oldest is now in 11th grade. We are extraordinarily pleased with CLA for several reasons. First and foremost, this is a devoutly Christian school where teachers instruct the students in the Scripture not just in the Bible classes but also in all the other subjects so as to develop a strong Christian view of the world. Second, we love the classical model where students are not just taught to regurgitate facts, but are taught Latin to develop their vocabulary, taught formal logic to see the proper relationships between concepts, and taught formal rhetoric so that they are able to express their ideas. Third, the students read the great works of history. By reading these great works for themselves, the students are able to participate in the great conversations that have been taking place for thousands of years. All of this means that the students know God's word, can properly interpret God's word, love God's word, proclaim God's word and defend God's word. We trusted this model 12 yrs ago when we enrolled our first child into the school and we are now seeing the wonderful fruit of that. —Submitted by a parent
