“The previous school I attended was a disaster. My mother wouldn’t let me go to the park because she was afraid for my safety. I started to give up, and behave like the other kids. Christ Academy has made a real difference in me, and I love the experiences that we share there. I can’t believe that I’m actually looking at colleges.”
