Excerpt of a wonderful letter from Anne Pearcy

Hi Dr. Cates!

Thank you for completing Colin’s grades so quickly. Yes, you certainly may quote our comments on his ACT scores. But may I add a couple of things? Not only was Colin not generally a good tester, but he was definitely weak in English. The curriculum you recommended for him this year (which was very heavy in language arts…) has very definitely strengthened, sharpened and bolstered his aptitude in English (from vocabulary and grammar to comprehension. That stood out to us immediately in his ACT scores (his showing was as strong in English as it was in Math and Science – that’s a first!!!).

Also, I just wanted to compliment you on your report card format. In order for Colin to receive credit at our local high school, for this year of home school, we had to submit his report card to the head of the guidance and career office and the principal. Once they saw it, they said there would be no problem transferring his credits. That is testimony to the professional look of your format. Colin’s counselor, who has been following him since we took him out last spring, has been quite impressed with his whole curriculum for this year. Anyway, all this to say that I believe Faith Christian Academy has just won a few more votes, from secular academia, for the viability of home-schooling! Good work!!

Thank you to you and your staff for being faithful in what God has given you to do.

Blessings and appreciation from our family,

Anne Pearcy
