Every year we receive testimonials from our students and their parents, in which they state what they like about our online school, and how our program, teachers and curriculum has benefited them. Here are those testimonials, written in their own words…
Christian Educators Academy has helped me immeasurably with my education. I got two years behind for various reasons, and because of the excellence of the curriculum and the attentiveness of my teachers, I am nearly back on track after only 9 months. The material covered is explained thoroughly, and much practice is required. Compared to other programs I have used, CEA holds me to a higher standard and helps me to excel. I am also continuously assisted by faculty members who take a personal interest in my education. My teachers are a big part of my success. Whatever questions I have they answer completely, and I never have to wait long. They continuously check on me and are very attentive. I appreciate them very much and enjoy being a student at CEA. Thank you all again for everything you do for us.

My husband and I researched multiple online high schools for our son to begin his 9th grade studies. After much investigation and fact finding, we were confident in selecting Christian Educator’s Academy. We spoke with Mr. and Mrs. Zabor on several occasions, and felt pleased with their love of learning and desire for their students to excel. The fact that they and their staff of teachers are Christians was important to us. One of the other factors in our choosing CEA is that they offer two highly recognized curricula, Apex and Gradpoint. We chose Gradpoint which is thought provoking, dynamic and multifaceted. Our son is enjoying the engaging daily lessons. The work load is challenging but not overwhelming and the instant grading gives him immediate feedback which he really likes. His teachers are quick to respond to his email inquiries with positive feedback and specific answers and explanations to any questions he may have. This is the first experience for him as a student in a virtual school and as a result of his teacher’s interactions with him, he has felt encouraged in this new venture. The high school tuition at Christian Educator’s Academy is fair and was also a factor in our choosing to enroll our child in this school. Because they are nationally accredited, it made our choice an obvious one. After seeing him happy and progressing nicely with his studies, we are all looking forward to the 2017/2018 school year enrollment.

This year marks our 6th year with students online with CEA. When we chose CEA, I was nervous and was not sure we had made the right decision. God knew that CEA was what our family needed. He led us to the school through a random internet search. Now all these years later, our 4th high schooler graduates this spring. All of them have graduated with an excellent education and have excelled not only academically but also socially and spiritually. Each had their unique high school career that was enabled by CEA. Their year-round programing, flexible scheduling, and attentive teachers and administration has allowed each of them to pursue extra curriculars (including extra music lessons, working, and missions trips) that would not have been possible in a traditional school setting. No on-line program is perfect, but CEA works through any issue that comes up. They approach each student as an individual and not just another face behind a screen. It has been a wonderful 6 years and I look forward to many many more as we graduate another in 4 years! – R. Hartenstein
CEA is great. Our granddaughter is about to finish her 9th grade year with CEA, and her grades are better than ever! We especially appreciate the easy on-line format which eliminates the need for books, and the flexibility of the scheduled work. Also, we are able to get ahead and to take time off whenever we need it. The teachers and staff have been very responsive and stepped in with additional one-on-one tutoring when needed. Thanks CEA for a great Christian education!
– S. Baker
As parents, we are concerned about providing rigorous academic curriculum for our children. We are pleased with both Christian Educators online and the Honors Apex classes because the teachers communicate with us promptly, the content is rigorous and the structure is comprehensive. We have been able to reach Christian Educator’s Mrs. Z. at different critical times and she has provided us with helpful counsel especially as it relates to helping our son prepare for college.
– M. Eppenauer
I will be returning for the next school year. My favorite teacher is Miss Gentile. She was very patient and helpful to me while I was struggling with one period of math. I would recommend this school to friends, because I think the courses/material is very interesting and informative, the work load is very manageable and I enjoy that you are able to do your classes and assignments whenever and wherever, conforming to your schedule.
As we searched for a homeschool plan for our daughter as she got older, we were concerned about the challenges we would face in high school and whether or not we would be able to give her all that she needed to be successful. Christian Educator’s Academy has relieved our fears by providing a thorough and advanced college preparatory program for our daughter. We are confident in going forward that through the care and personal attention she receives from her teachers, she will accomplish all that God has planned for her.
– K. Hanson
I will recommend CEA to family and friends because I believe that that CEA provides an excellent online education at reasonable prices. Recently, I have recommended CEA to a friend of mine for her son who will be attending high school 2017/2018!
– J. Button
Choosing alternative schooling for our children is a big and worrisome decision. After all, going against the main stream is never an easy choice. Why do we think we know better than eighty percent of the population? And are we sure Christian Educators Academy will be any better than the local public school or other choices? This is my third child I have enrolled in CEA and I am more confident than ever in my decision to do so. They are easy to contact when needed. The staff is patient, helpful and intelligent. And the I.T. department is quick and friendly. This is the first year my youngest has been enrolled in CEA. He was having a hard time retaining the information from his lessons. Consequently, it was causing him to fail tests requiring a retest. He began to run behind right at the start of the year. Mr. Zabor requested a Skype meeting. He gave him advice on how to take better notes and how to develop good study habits. Since then Gabriel has begun to catch up and is maintaining an above average grade on all subjects. I have dealt with at CEA and will be using their services through graduation.

This year was my junior/senior year of High school, and it has been one of the smoothest years yet. At the beginning of the school year, I made the rambunctious decision to take on my junior and senior year. I emailed Mrs. Z and asked if it was possible. It did not seem like it was going to happen, but she worked with me, and made it possible!! Every teacher this year has been fantastic! Mrs. Z has been by my side throughout this whole year. She has helped me work through all of the technical problems and has encouraged me along the way. My other teachers have been amazing as well. Mrs. Gentile, Mr. Z, and Mr. Barnett have also encouraged me this year. All three of them have helped me understand what I am learning, and have helped me get everything done in a timely manner. I am thankful for CEA. Without this school, I would not have been able to achieve my goal, and graduate a year early. Thank you all!!!
As a parent, I recommend CEA to friends because CEA offers academically rigorous and challenging courses to prepare students for college and life experiences. If you are in search of a school that loves children and loves ensuring that children are being educated then CEA is the place for your child/children. CEA also provides flexibility for academically advanced students whom are also talented/gifted in the “Arts” be it Dance, Theater, Music, etc.
– Mr. Chisolm.
The teachers at CEA take time to communicate with me and explain to me what I don’t understand, then encourage me to do better. They keep me posted on what’s happening in the school. For example, they keep me posted on the activities and contests in the school though newsletters. I find that the school has a logical curriculum. This helps me do my work during the week without making me feel overwhelmed so I don’t have to worry about getting behind schedule too much. The material on the Apex curriculum is fun to learn and I feel like I’m learning a lot of new things that I never thought about before.
This is a split between Mrs. Z and Ms. G. Mrs. Z was instrumental in helping me as a parent choose CEA for my daughter. Mrs. Z answered my questions with patience and clarity, and her warm and caring personality showed me that she truly cares for her students and families. Additionally, she directed me to the website where I found answers to may of my questions and was able to preview the online classes. In our chats Mrs. Z came across as an established educator whose desire is for her students to succeed and excel not just in academics but in the world outside of the online classroom. Finally, Mrs. Z listened to my concerns about my daughter’s struggles, and immediately began to come up with ideas to help. This had immediate beneficial effects, and we are grateful to Mrs. Z. Ms. G has been fantastic as a resource for myself and my daughter on a daily and weekly basis. Transitioning to online private school after years of traditional public school has been a real adjustment for our family, and Ms. G has helped us with a variety of topics, from technical details of the online environment to understanding the pacing and grading of the materials. She has been wonderful in interacting with my daughter in schoolwork, and has always responded to email in a thorough, helpful, and timely manner. Ms. G is really on top of her game as a homeroom and subject teacher, and has a wealth of technical tools to make the online environment productive. She also has a positive and upbeat manner that helps students who missed some questions understand the material while focusing on the learning and not missed points.
CEA is an online treasure for students and families looking to experience the highest quality education in an online, self-paced environment. The curriculum is rigorous and presented in an effective, up-to-date way, with a nice combination of computer-scored online work and teacher-scored written assignments. Our family has experienced a variety of traditional public schools and we spent a significant amount of time in research and reflection before selecting CEA. The difference is astounding in the high quality staff who respond quickly, give individual attention to students, and help them to succeed, especially if they are struggling with some material. The staff allow us to feel that we are part of a family with a common goal of empowering our learners to succeed. I feel confident that my student will be well-prepared for college and beyond, which is something we found lacking in previous schools. We find CEA to be an outstanding value and we love the flexibility of the online format.

Three reason why I like being a student at CEA are one, I like being able to get as much work done as I want so I can get ahead of the normal schedule. The second reason I like being a student here is because I get to do school online with a Christian environment. And the third and last reason is I know Miss Gentile from my last school at NCA! So its easy to talk to her about my questions and get help on school!
I would recommend CEA to a friend because it allows for you to work at your pace. The teachers are very kind and help you in whatever way that they can. CEA is very helpful and has so many great teachers. Not only do the teachers work hard to help you with your work, they encourage you to work harder and keep up the good work. The teachers work their hardest to respond and to make sure that you understand the work that your doing. If you don’t understand something, they will explain it to you as thoroughly as possible, and if you still don’t understand they will work with you to make sure that you understand your work. CEA is great because I work ahead of my school schedule so that I can be calm during my heavy dance schedule this year. I’m glad to have CEA as a school because I can work as hard as I want at my own pace.
CEA has helped me to learn to be more productive, and self-aware in how I need to complete things in order to get them done. It has helped me become a more independent learner, and I have learned to get through schoolwork and understand lessons without a teacher speaking it out to me and writing it on a board. I have definitely become more able to teach things to myself, but knowing that I can ask my teacher about anything I don’t understand at anytime is good to know 🙂 I have also become more able to cope with being alone, and not needing other people around me all the time to feel sane. Being less social and not seeing my friends every day has definitely been tough, but has also helped me in that I’m not dependent on other people.
I like CEA because I am able to work at my own pace. I do not have to stress about turning in assignment on the exact due date because of the fact that the teachers are very flexible. Also, the teachers are very understanding and do not judge any of their students. Honestly, I would not be where I am today if it was not for CEA. They have helped me get through the darkest times of my life and for that I am eternally grateful! CEA has taught to love myself and lean on god when I am going through a rough patch. I am able to focus on the more important things in life while getting an excellent education. To say the least, I love CEA and I would consider them my second family 🙂
My name is Hannah Brown and I am a sophomore at Christian Educators Academy. This is my first year attending CEA and I can honestly say that it has been a fantastic experience. CEA is not for slackers; the curriculum is tough and the teachers expect only the best from you. Despite being an online school, I feel very connected to all of my teachers, who answer any and all of my question in a timely fashion. I chose Christian Educators Academy because I dance for a company that puts on many shows a year, and CEA allows me a self-paced program with teachers who care as much about me personally as they do about my education. Thanks to their guidance, I feel equipped to further my education, and I am happily looking forward to my next two years of High School at Christian Educators Academy. – Hannah
Being a student of CEA has had its up’s and down’s. The positive reasons out-weigh the negative by a long shot. Being in an online home school has allowed me to have many opportunities that I would not be able to have if I attended a physical school. I have been able to travel around and not worry about getting behind in school. I am also able to work part-time as a Vet Tech which is preparing me for actual Vet Tech school. The staff of CEA supports my rodeo and even ask how I am doing. I feel as if they are not just a teacher but somebody who actually cares about me. They make sure you are doing okay, and even share their own personal stories to try and relate with you. I am blessed to be apart of CEA and recommend it to people who are looking for a homeschool.
Cole Barnett AKA Mr. B was my favorite teacher. He took over my English class about half way through the school year, and I have enjoyed having him as my teacher. He always replies promptly and is very good at leaving a comment on every assignment that he grades. Most notably, he always points out ways that I can improve, and I appreciate that.
I have really enjoyed my first year at CEA. At first it seemed a little hard, but my teachers were there for me, most notably my homeroom teacher Mr. Barnett. He was and is very kind, and at times I feel like I’m writing to a friend. In the beginning I needed some help around, but he kindly helped me out. Once he even bought and sent me a gift card. Pretty awesome, right? My Algebra teacher Miss Gentile has been great too, and she recently as of three days ago helped me with an extremely frustrating three lessons. With her help I was able to finally understand it and in turn I aced my test today! The work is absurdly enjoyable, and more often than not I find myself researching some of the things I learn when I am done with school for the day. It is a very good school, and I hope to get better as I go along. Thanks for making this a good rookie year for me!

The main reason I would recommend CEA is because of how much faster I am able to get my work done. I am also able to travel a lot more and I am not confined by a traditional school schedule. The flexibility allows for my learning to be more focused on me and my needs rather than a class as a whole. Christian Educators Academy has been extremely helpful in my learning. Rather than being distracted by socializing, exhaustion, and other factors relating to public school, I am able to work at my own pace and get better grades. Another reason why I would recommend CEA is because it allows me to travel a lot, something I would not be able to do as easily if I were not enrolled at CEA. Also, the curriculum is centered around my needs. In public school, I would not only have to learn at the same pace as everyone else but also learn the same ways others do. At CEA, though, I work at my own pace with classes suited to the way I learn. Overall, CEA allows me to learn better and faster without the distractions from public school while still being taught what life will require from me after high school.
CEA has been great for me. All my teachers are encouraging and extremely helpful. I have been to 7 schools since kindergarten to a freshmen high school student, and I have been enjoying CEA the most. The classes can be challenging, but I love a good challenge. The schedule is really flexible, which is amazing. All my teachers are welcoming and glad to have me. I was struggling a little at first with my grades, but I have improved amazingly with the help of my teachers. They put me on a plan for success. I love that I could travel anywhere with internet and still keep up in my classes or I could go ahead of other people. I also love that the teachers should email you if you have any questions, on the weekdays within 24 hours. Ms. G, and Mrs. Z have been helpful because they are helping me manage my schedule, and are very encouraging. My other teachers are also helpful by answering any questions I have and suggest corrections if I get something wrong. All the teachers are positive and are a good influence. I used dislike my classes in my old schools, but with CEA, I have been happier and less stressed and I also have been looking forward to my classes. Ms. G understands my questions, and is aware that, during the Skyped Test, it is unnerving when someone is staring at me. They had to have at least one Skyped, but they found out how to make it less unnerving. It makes me more relaxed not being able to see the teachers watching me. All the teachers are fun, but knows that school is an important part of your life. Thank you Mr. Barnett, Mrs. Zabor, Ms. Nason, and thank you to Ms. Gentile for helping me in school.
CEA has been a great help to me and my grades. I know we all stumble sometimes with grades, but compared to my other school, I am improving. I think this is because there was more socializing, let work in my old school, and I am really challenged and learn at CEA. With this online process, I am obligated to get it done and not be distracted. So thank you.
My teachers have been great, and my favorite was Miss Newman. She always answered my questions and put smiley faces at the end of her emails. I don’t like it was teachers are so formal, I get nervous and intimidated. The teachers at CEA all reach out to me and take an interest in me. <strongKate
I like CEA for many reasons. It has helped with skills I did not know before. Besides all of the lessons in many subjects, I have learned how to manage my time and how to be more responsible for myself. I love how flexible all the due dates are, so that I can move at my own pace. Also, the bible study book has helped me learn new things about Jesus and move closer in my relationship with God. CEA is a great online school and I have learned so much this year. Kristen
I consider myself extremely fortunate to be a student at Christian Educators Academy; I have enjoyed my years at the school immensely. The curriculum has been challenging but rewarding and the selection of courses is diverse. The most meaningful aspect of my experience at Christian Educators have been the fantastic teachers. The teachers are kind, patient, and very knowledgeable.
As someone who has been homeschooled ever since I began kindergarten, I know what it’s like to use a curriculum which is several years dated. I started CEA when I began high school, and this is much more preferable to me than my last school system. With CEA, all of the information is to date, and I’m am learning at the same pace or even ahead of most public school students. The fact that CEA is fully accredited is a big plus, especially when I apply for college. Austin
CEA Is a fabulous school! The teachers are very helpful and will do anything to make sure you understand the program my favorite part is the grading process you can see your average grade immediately after taking a test or quiz it makes it very helpful to see how you are doing! I have recommended the school to many people they have strayed the program and loved it also! It very flexible with my busy schedule, and easy to do where ever you are at! It’s a great school for anybody who is not loving public school and need more interactive, hands on teaching!!

The best part about this school is the teachers. They are more than willing to help me with any question. They make sure I understand the guidelines of assignments and, if I don’t, they will give me another chance. My teachers are always available and schedule their lives around what the student can do. I really appreciate their willingness to do anything to further my education. Zola
One of the best online schools out there! The teachers really work hard to help you, and really help you grow as a student. My experience with Christian Educators Academy has been amazing. I would recommend this school to anyone! Alec
My 4 year experience at Christian Educators Academy was the best choice my parents made for me. I was struggling in the early days of 9th grade. When my failing first quarterly review arrived, my parents chose to enter me into an accredited online school. Without peer pressure, or working at a pace set for the slowest student in the class, I excelled. I found that I loved math and science. Due to the expertise of Mrs. Z, I started to have goals and dreams, and I wanted to pursue the field of Engineering. I graduated with an Honors College Preparatory Diploma this year, and received a full scholarship at the University of Alabama! I am a success story, and have fulfilled my dream, one I would not have had without CEA. Branden SJ
Your English program has definitely been good for me. For the first time in all of my school years, I am actually enjoying English. The creative writing assignments allowed me to express myself in ways that opened my mind to different writing styles. I now see the benefit of learning to write well, when as before, I perceived it as a necessary evil. My attitude has definitely changed. Katelyn
My mother was adamant about finding a good distance learning school to enroll me in. We previously got behind in a previous school learning system so she was trying to ensure that she found a program that was both highly regarded yet reasonable in allowing us to complete the work in a timely manner. She was thrilled to find Christian Educators. They’ve been very helpful thus far and we encourage anyone looking for a good program to consider them. Daniel D.
As a parent of two online high schoolers and one CEA graduate, I could not be happier with Christian Educators Academy. When dealing with people and computers no program will be without a few glitches here and there. Deborah Zabor, the principal of CEA, has been incredible with dealing with and resolving whatever issues we have encountered. She makes online high school an easy and inviting experience. We have found that our students are challenged and are excelling in their studies. They love the flexibility they have with their school. Ruth
The teachers have been very helpful and have taught me a great deal. I feel valued as a person by my teachers. They care about me as a person, and care about my grades and keeping on pace. CEA has taught me to be diligent and disciplined with my school work and is truly preparing me for college. Sonia
Eleven years ago, I decided to educate my children at home. I found 70 schools online, but Mrs. Z made me feel like family and helped me with every aspect of my children’s educational journey.Brandi
This is my 3rd year at CEA. I was able to complete my school year more quickly because of the flexibility of the courses and my teachers. Mrs. Z was very helpful in helping me prepare for college and getting the correct classes. I was able to make my own schedule and finish early, allowing me more time for ministry. I am extremely thankful and it is good to be finished! Caleb
We appreciate our daughter being able to have access to a high-quality education that would allow her to get into college anywhere in the US. We travel a great deal, and we like the fact she can work ahead in order not to have to worry about having the internet on the road. Mark
CEA has been a blessing throughout my high school career. It has given me the freedom and preparedness I desired. I have been able to go on mission trips and take college courses. I have been able to spend a lot more time with my family because of the flexibility of the schedule. Judah
CEA has provided an educational choice that my son could not have received elsewhere:d one-on-one, non-intrusive instruction, accountability, honors classes, and the opportunity to “double” his course load, as well as take personalized classes reflecting his unique interests. Joy
CEA is an advanced program and has allowed my daughter to align with an advanced degree. As a dancer, she appreciates the flexibility of an online school. Jim
The first year was hard, but after getting used to the program, I loved it. It gives me much more time to spend doing the things I love, as well as spending more time with family. The teachers are more positive and encouraging than my old school, and they really care about my education.
I consider myself extremely fortunate to be a student at Christian Educators Academy; I have enjoyed my years at the school immensely. The curriculum has been challenging but rewarding and the selection of courses is diverse. The most meaningful aspect of my experience at Christian Educators have been the fantastic teachers. The teachers are kind, patient, and very knowledgeable. I have forged special relationships with my teachers that I will not soon forget. One of my favorite aspects of Christian Educators are the wonderful teachers, who have helped me tremendously throughout my educational career. Also, the education I have received at Christian Educators has been of the utmost quality. I have learned more at Christian Educators than I did at any other school I have attended over the course of my academic career. I also enjoy the flexibility completing my studies online offers, and the time I would not normally have in a traditional school setting that I can spend to pursue extracurricular activities and other interests.

If you are considering homeschooling programs, look no further and choose CEA; you will not be disappointed.
– Austin 2014
Christian Educators Academy is a truly fantastic place to learn, and you don’t even have to leave your home to do it! The teachers do an excellent job of making sure you have the best education possible, and they always find better ways to help you learn if you are having trouble. The classes are very easy to navigate, so you will never get lost when trying to find a test or practice. The interactive videos and activities also really help to contribute to the overall learning experience. I would definitely recommend CEA to anyone who wants to do online learning. –

Christian Educator’s Academy has benefited me greatly. The curriculum is fun and I find it easy to understand. If a question does arise, my teachers are happy to help explain what I am not understanding. The teachers at CEA are so helpful! Everyday I am thankful for them. I find myself learning all kinds of things and enjoying myself at the same time. The calendar they have developed is great for knowing what you should do everyday. Christian Educators Academy has been a great influence in my school life and I look forward to continuing my education with them!
– Mac 2014
I am a new student at Christian Educators Academy. This is my first year homeschooling, and between homeschooling and public school I highly prefer homeschooling. The first reason why I enjoy homeschool is because it is very flexible. I have found that I can go anywhere and do school, as long as I have my laptop! I have brought my schooling to my grandparents house one time to visit. I simply had to log into my computer and press a simple button to get into my school. Also I went to my cousins one time and I did all my school there! Another reason I prefer homeschooling over public school, is because I can work without any noise or distractions from any other students. This makes it easier to concentrate. There is also no drama from other students. I think the teachers are very nice and helpful. I feel as though they are concentrating in helping me succeed at school. I think the rest of this year learning with CEA will be wonderful, and I think this is the way to learn.

Christian Educators Academy is incredible! This school is so wonderful and it gives more flexibility than any other curriculum or program I have ever used. For me, a competitive cyclist, flexibility is a must. CEA lets me have just enough room to help me achieve my cycling goals, but they also keep me accountable and help me finish my classes on time. The teachers are amazing, and very helpful. They provide great resources and are always available. Also having a Christian school makes highs chool a much preferred environment rather than a public high school. CEA is a perfect high school for me!
– Moriah 2014
I used to go to a private school in which I practically spent 11 hours of a day doing school or school work. I was not able to spend much time with my family or other activities I wished to get involved in. I did work to get a good grade and not because I wanted to learn, I was very stressed and I almost never remembered the things I learned. My family and I also traveled a lot and as the years passed it got harder and harder to travel because of school. When I entered CEA it was like my life took a turn. I was able to develop my gifts, spend time with my family, manage my time and do more activities, not be stressed and travel without being overloaded with work. I learned because I wanted to know more and I enjoyed it, it was exciting to learn so much. I remember most of the things I learned and I also feel a have better understanding with the world. I may not know the teachers personally, but their effort to help me learn was very strong. They were all very nice and patient too. I think my life would have never gotten to this point if it weren’t because I entered CEA.

I have completed the survey for CEA and I always wanted to give the personal testimony about why I like CEA. The best part about this school is the teachers. They are more than willing to help me with any question. They make sure I understand the guidelines of assignments and, if I don’t, they will give me another chance. My teachers are always available and schedule their lives around what the student can do. I really appreciate their willingness to do anything to further my education.
– Zola 2014
I have completed the survey for CEA but I always wanted to give the personal testimony about why I like CEA. Quite honestly, this is a much better program than the usual public schools or even private schools today. I feel I’m getting a better education that’s preparing me for the kind of work I want to do in the future. I even feel like I’m intelligent! After doing the APEX courses and seeing my grades- despite struggling because it’s still school -I actually feel smart! I’m not distracted with things that would be going on in usual schools, and I can actually focus on my education which is what school is for in the first place. All the teachers are also really nice and do everything they can to help the students the best they can. They can level with the students and make it a very nice environment to come into every week during school. I feel like I’ll actually fair quite well during college’s rigorous schedule because of CEA. Thanks for everything Mrs. Z and Co. God bless you guys!
– Brenna 2014
One of the best online schools out there! The teachers really work hard to help you, and really help you grow as a student. My experience with Christian Educators Academy has been amazing. I would recommend this school to anyone!
– Alec 2014
Our family chose CEA 3 years ago as our preferred method for the secondary education of our children. We have three students on line with CEA: a senior, a sophomore, and an 8th grader. We also have another that is a graduate of CEA. I confidently recommend CEA to anyone interested. The courses are challenging and push our students to their fullest ability. The teachers are helpful and available. The option to make the school year a 12 month process has been invaluable for our children who actively participate in missions trips and other extracurricular activities. Mrs. Z, the principal, is personable and has been attentive to our concerns and helpful in guiding us to answers to our questions. They truly look at the student as an individual and take into consideration each ones whole performance not just test grades. No program is perfect but because of our extremely positive experience we plan to continue with the program indefinitely.

Christian Educators Academy is a wonderful school! They provide an excellent curriculum. Their high standards inspire and drive students to succeed and do their best. The teachers are always available to help when you need them and make sure you have a grasp on what you are learning. One of the many things I like about the school is that I am able to work at my own pace. This has allowed me to pursue hobbies and travel, because while I am away, I can still log into my classes and continue working. I am so glad that this opportunity is available for me. I have nothing but kind words to offer about this school.

My 4 year experience at Christian Educators Academy was the best choice my parents made for me. I was struggling in the early days of 9th grade. When my failing first quarterly review arrived, my parents chose to enter me into an accredited online school. Without peer pressure, or working at a pace set for the slowest student in the class, I excelled. I found that I loved math and science. Due to the expertise of Mrs. Z, I started to have goals and dreams, and I wanted to pursue the field of Engineering. I graduated with an Honors College Preparatory Diploma this year, and received a full scholarship at the University of Alabama! I am a success story, and have fulfilled my dream, one I would not have had without CEA.

Thank you CEA. Your English program has definitely been good for me. For the first time in all of my school years, I am actually enjoying English. The creative writing assignments allowed me to express myself in ways that opened my mind to different writing styles. I now see the benefit of learning to write well, when as before, I perceived it as a necessary evil. My attitude has definitely changed.
– Katelyn 2013
CEA has taught me so much! It has brought to me a whole new perspective on my education. Instead of being pessimistic with a propensity to complain, I find that I am enjoying learning about different styles of writing, new and exciting places, different techniques for solving math problems, and healthier ways of learning. I’ve had a great time getting to know my teachers. I like how they personalize the curriculum and challenge me, and they are always there if I have questions. Thank you, CEA!

As a parent of two online high schoolers and one CEA graduate, I could not be happier with Christian Educators Academy. When dealing with people and computers no program will be without a few glitches here and there. Deborah Zabor, the principal of CEA, has been incredible with dealing with and resolving whatever issues we have encountered. She makes online high school an easy and inviting experience. We have found that our students are challenged and are excelling in their studies. They love the flexibility they have with their school. We were looking for and found a high school that allowed our students to move as fast or slow as they needed as well as gave them the freedom to pursue other activities such as music, sports, working, and missions trips. The mastery learning philosophy of the school aligns with my philosophy of education as well -you don’t move on until you have mastered the previous concepts. Overall, I would and have recommended CEA to other families and will continue to do so.
– Ruth H. 2013
I think CEA is an outstanding program! The teachers are all extremely nice and whenever you email them with a question they always get back to you immediately. Without CEA I wouldn’t be able to do what I love, which is riding and showing horses all the time. This program has a very lenient schedule to a certain extent. It is strict enough to where I don’t slack off but if for some reason I need to take a few days off I can easily catch back up. My teachers do not start emailing me or freaking out whenever I take a few days off or get a little bit behind which really makes me happy. I feel like they let me make my own decisions. Overall I really enjoy this program.
– Aleece J. 2013
I can honestly say that Christian Educators is a school I would recommend to any Christian homeschooling family, as the staff does not attempt to involve themselves in business not pertaining to them, and the suggested curriculum was exactly what I needed for each grade 75% of the time. I appreciate the Lord having allowed me to apply to this school, and want to thank my parents for providing me with this education.
– Roslyn 2013
All my life I have been going to traditional schools. For most of this time, I have greatly disliked my experiences at these schools. When I came to Christian Educators Academy, I found my experience completely changed. I went from disliking school to learning about new subjects in interesting classes with great teachers. I do not think there is a school I would rather be at more than Christian Educators. They have helped me in so many ways, and I am very grateful to them.
– Lindsey H. 2013
I really love this online school. It has taught me a lot. I have not had the best work ethic, but this is teaching me how to have a good work ethic. I am still in the middle of working on the work ethic. A lot of times with my work ethic I don’t push myself, but in sports I love to push myself and get better, unless it involves running on the treadmill. It is also good for me because it is a Christian online school. The Norwalk public schools or most any other public schools don’t teach the real history of our bible in history or any other subject. I would rate this online school one of the best schools I have ever done. Do you also want me to take the survey to.
– Sean H. 2013
I like this school because I can work at my own speed and is not too hard to find help. If I get stuck on a lesson, I can wait for a teachers help or take as much time as I need to study and review the lesson. CEA is a great school because I am always around family and there aren’t people here that would hurt me. I love being home all the time and school lunches have never been better. Working from home gives me time to take care of pets or do chores, being home most of the time has also helped me become better at playing the guitar. What I like most of all about this school is I have time with God and I can play all the music I want. I hope to finish this year with all A’s and go into a public school environment next year, being confident with all my work.
– B.Clements 2013
My mother was adamant about finding a good distance learning school to enroll me in. We previously got behind in a previous school learning system so she was trying to ensure that she found a program that was both highly regarded yet reasonable in allowing us to complete the work in a timely manner. She was thrilled to find Christian Educators. They’ve been very helpful thus far and we encourage anyone looking for a good program to consider them.
– Daniel D. 2013
I’ve been at Christian Educators Academy for four years now, and I’ve loved every year. My first year was a little difficult with it being a new school, but the teachers gladly offered assistance for any help that I needed, whether a phone call was needed or a live video chat. Transitioning from my first to second year, there were some complications in completing within the time frame because of all the traveling my family had to do that year. The school was so patient with me and they literally bent over backwards to see how I could complete my Sophomore year and begin my Junior year. I’ve been so pleased with the curriculum and the teachers. This past year, my Senior year, was my favorite. I absolutely love the new APEX curriculum. It’s truly helpful to have the tests after each lesson, and all the essays in English. The school really does prepare you for college with all the writing assignments. If it weren’t for this school, I wouldn’t know how to write well and I wouldn’t feel anywhere close to how prepared I feel for college today. I’ve enjoyed all my classes that I’ve taken and all of my teachers that I’ve had at CEA. My favorite teacher was Mr. Zabor. Although I don’t really enjoy math, Mr. Zabor helped me immensely in understanding everything and explained what I didn’t quite get. I’d like to say thank you CEA for everything you do to not only give a good education, but also all you do in really teaching the material and making it understandable to the students. I’m very glad I chose CEA.
-Caroline W. 2013
This is my first year doing Christian Educators Academy. I have learned so many new things about myself and my academics. CEA is the best idea for an online school ever. The teachers are really helpful, and Mrs.Z knows how to answer every question you have! CEA has helped me in so many ways. I thank my parents for looking into the school, and sending me here!
-Maddy S. 2013
Christian Educators Academy has truly been a great school to be enrolled in. Truly, the staff works very hard to meet the needs of all of their students. When I started at the academy in January of this year, I was welcomed in by a staff that was ready to do whatever had to be done to get my freshman year going. This still holds true today because I know that I can go to my teachers whenever I need help, and they are willing to do whatever it takes to help me to be prepared for the future. In addition, the staff is very kind and respectful to not only me but my family. They work hard to make sure that my family is involved in my educational journey. All in all, Christian Educators Academy is a well-run and established academy, which I would highly recommend. Thank you for your time.
-Giavanna M. 2013
I have thoroughly enjoyed this year with CEA. All of the classes have furthered my knowledge and increased my potential for the future. The teachers at CEA are competent, helpful, and kind. My favorite teacher is Miss Gentile. She excels in teaching ability and is always helpful, understanding, and perceptive of individual student needs. My favorite class was business math because it taught me many practical concepts and processes. Thanks to all of CEA’s teachers and administrative personnel for a wonderful senior year!
–Anthony K. 2013
This is Jorden and I love CEA! I love the classes and how I can get a quality education and it work with my busy schedule. The staff seems very friendly and eager to help and they have made me excited to stick with school and get my diploma. I Love science and history and I personally like both Ms. Burton and Ms.Ashburner. They both seem very nice and enjoy their classes very much.
-Jorden V. 2013
As for my testimony I am really happy with this school and how it is set up. It is very easy to understand and all of the teachers have been great when I’ve needed help or had a question. My favorite subject in school is history because it is just the most interesting subject, in my opinion. My favorite teacher would have to be Mrs. Gentile because she has been very helpful answering my questions and being very nice about it.
– Bryan P. 2013
Christian Educators Online is a great school. It offers many features to help it’s student learn and excel in life. One of its features that I personal love is how the school is “at your own pace”. This feature gives the students a feeling of not being rushed to hand in homework on time and take their time doing it. For those students that are smarty pants, if they work hard enough, Students can actually finish two grades in one school year! Christian Educators Online is a great school, in my opinion. As a student, My favorite subject is English, I may not be the best in the class but I enjoy the feeling I get when writing. I can make up a whole new world and explain to everyone what is in it. I don’t really have a favorite teacher, but If I needed to pick one though, I would say Ms. Amy Gentile. She is easy to get a hold of when I need help and she is very helpful with homework and things i don’t understand.
Autumn W. 2013
Christian Educators Academy has been my school for three years. The online classes have helped me excel in subjects a struggled in while attending public school. My favorite subject this year is English III because we have been doing lots of reading like the Last Mohicans and Moby Dick. My favorite teacher is Ms. Gentile because she is always encouraging me to expand my thinking when working on essay topics.
Christian Educators Academy has been an answer to prayer. Staying focused and sitting still in 1- 1/2 hour classes in public school was difficult for my son. CEA’s online format gives him an opportunity to work at his own pace, and succeed! His grades are better and most importantly, he feels better about himself.
– D.W. 2013
My daughter has been doing CEA for a little over a year now and it has been the perfect alternative to public school for her. The flexibility to go on mission trips and the quality education she is getting are two of the many advantages we have found with CEA. Mrs. Z is very helpful and always accessible to us. She is able to individualize my daughter’s classes according to her strengths and interests. I have already recommended CEA to another student in our area and I would recommend it to anyone that is looking for a strong, alternative education for their child. CEA has been a life saver for our family and an answer to prayer in so many ways for us.
– Debbie L. 2013
Our two daughters have been attending Christian Educators since 2006. Prior to this time had been searching in vain for a school that had high academic standards, offered careful attention to our daughter’s strengths and weaknesses in learning, and provided all of these qualities with Christian principles and belief as the foundation. We can truly say that Deborah and Christian Educators has fulfilled every one of these facets of education for our daughters beyond our hopes…our daughters are now in Christian Academy, doing their schoolwork entirely online. Our oldest daughter is now a member of the National Society of High School Scholars, and an award winning photographer; and out youngest daughter is a self-published author/illustrator. Christian Educators, and the dedication to the Lord that is part of this school, was instrumental in helping our daughters discover these talents, while continuing to give them a strong, biblically-based, well-rounded education. I could not more highly recommend Christian Educators, as a school for your children. It has been an enormous blessing to our family.
– M Dolce
I love this school because it allows me the needed flexibility that is required for my competitive cycling. CEA is a wonderful Christian school, and the teachers are very helpful.
It is the best online school I have tried. Others are confusing, hard to use, and they do not clearly state what your assignments are. I always know what is expected of me. The teachers are very helpful and always get back to me with answers to my questions. I have even had teachers call me and walk me through math problems that I just could not figure out!
I really like CEA. This was my first year and I am very surprised at how much I actually learn. I never realized when I was at my traditional private school, how I could walk out of a class room without learning anything. Here, you complete a lesson and you know it, and if you need help a teachers always there.
I think that online schooling is the best type of learning. I get the benefits of a private school (teachers), yet my Mom is still there to help me. I have done other online schools but being able to work at my own pace is what I like about Christian Educators Academy.
I have found your curriculum to be very informative, and CEA builds strong writers in their students. The teachers are very helpful, and respond to questions quickly! Nicely laid out and easy to work with courses and lessons.
I love the flexibility of the program. I also want to comment on how nice they are! They really help when I am having a tough time in some of my subjects! Mrs. Z and Mr. Z have also helped me get a better education and they kept it Christian friendly. It has helped me with my walk with God!”
The classes this year were very enjoyable and interesting and the teachers were very patient and understanding whenever I needed help. I really enjoyed taking classes here this year and look forward to next year!
I greatly appreciate CEA and their classed and all the help from the teachers.
My experience with online school started three months ago. I am a full- time watch salesman working six days a week from 9am to 7pm. Previously, I went to night school, but I feel that the whole process is too tiring for me. I had a hard time concentrating after a long working day. After speaking to my manager, she recommended me to explore some online schools. After doing some research, I choose Christian Online School. It offers a broad curriculum and flexible studying schedules. Unlike my previous night school, I could finally choose my own studying patterns and times. I could even squeeze in lunch time and waiting time for clients to visit the shop to do my homework. This experience adds value to my learning process during my busy day schedule. The only disadvantage of the online school is that I have to be very self-disciplined and I have no teachers or fellow students to physically go through the whole studying process with me. Luckily, I feel this online school’s teachers are very helpful, and I get back my homework with comments promptly. I will continue to work hard and hope I will get into a good university or college after graduating from this school.

Being completely honest, I couldn’t be happier with the fact that I left my school to come here. At my other school, I was miserable and I didn’t feel there was a need to try because I was so upset. The quality of the courses I think is just right, except geometry and French are a little hard to learn by yourself! I have learned a ton this year, and my teachers no matter what-support me. I know that even though I am by myself at home, I can call and get help with some lessons. The teachers here, including Mrs. Z, are awesome people that help me understand things when I don’t.
– age 15
After completing several of the courses from this school, I have noticed that the classes are very informational and helpful. Also the teachers are prompt in giving replies to questions and on grading completed lessons. The teachers are well informed and knowledgeable about the classes that they teach and are well able to answer any question that a student may have.
– age 17
I have felt like I have been learning quite a bit from my classes. I am amazed I can remember more with online, then when I went to daily classes! Overall, the teacher input has been very helpful and I have always gotten responds to my messages. Plus, I need this class to get to college, but that does not mean I enjoyed all the classes – which I have not – Spanish is not my forte, but with the help of my teacher, I will pass this class too!
– age 16
I left my public school for personal reasons in the middle of 11th grade. I was able to start in the middle of the year, and keep all my credits. With the help of Mrs. Z, I was able to come up with a plan to graduate on time. I loved the classes, and was able to graduate within 365 days of starting my classes! My accredited transcripts were forwarded to the college of my choice 2 days after finishing my classes. All my teachers were professional, and were able to answer questions quickly – even in math. I would recommend these online classes for any high school student.
– age 18
I think that this online school is a very good school. I like it better than going to regular school because you can work at your own pace, and if you have trouble with a lesson or a subject you can go over it as much as you want and the teachers will help you if you need it. The teachers help you a lot and they email you frequently. If you get a bad grade they will let you redo it and maybe do a couple other lessons so you are able to fully understand it. It is fun to do schoolwork in the morning because they make it interesting. This school is fun, a good school, and gives you chances to succeed.
– age 11
When I left my regular school, I felt that the teachers never had time for me. My online teachers help me every day- even finish lesson on weekends! I now get A’s and B’s on all my stuff, instead of C’s. Sometimes I have to redo a lesson, cause I did not learn the way I needed to, but once I get it, like in math, I feel really good about myself! I have to complete one lesson every week in all my subjects, but when I do, I never have homework! This is my second year with online classes, because I compete in gymnastics, I can study when I need to and practice when I need to.
Because of a death in my family, I had to leave school in my senior year – 2 months before graduating. My old school gave me incompletes, and I was not able to go back to complete 3 credits. Christian Educators Academy transferred my credits and I was able to quickly complete Economics, Government and Forensic Science online– the only credits I needed to graduate. I also prepared to take my SAT exam over the summer using a CD program called College-prep-genius, and did great. The administrator helped me prepare for my college application process, and sent out numerous transcripts free of charge. Without Christian Educators, I may never have gotten my diploma.
– age 18
I have been taking Christian Educators Classes for 2 years now. My teachers answer my questions, and give me a chance to redo lessons I mess up on. My classes are challenging, but not too hard. I am doing much better with online classes than I was in public school. I am learning to be responsible for my own work, and I can work at a pace that works for me. I am able to compete in swimming, without having to come home to tons of homework! I hope to graduate with Christian Educators.
– age 15
Everyone said I would have to get my GED – I had too many classes to make-up. Wrong! Christian Educators allows me to take as many classes as I can within 365 days. I was able to complete 10th and 11th grade in one year! Now I will finish 12th grade, take my SAT and attend Valencia College in Jan. of 2010. Don’t believe what public school administrators tell you. Call Christian Educators today, and graduate – I really appreciate my teachers and Mrs. Z
