Parent Testimonials

We are so happy to have found Karis Academy. We have tried other language programs in the area and this is the first school where my daughter actually enjoys learning and is retaining what she has learned. The shift in attitude toward learning a new language has been priceless. The instructor is very attuned to the students' understanding and progress and makes the learning process fun and engaging, which together makes for a successful learning program.

At the end of each class, my daughter feels proud of what she has learned and is eager to know more! Both my daughter (as a student) and I (as a parent) are immensely satisfied with Karis Academy and are beyond pleased with the results.

- Cathryn, Mother of 8-year-old

My children have been going to Karis Academy for 6 months now. They attend two days a week of Mandarin classes. We do not speak Chinese at home so we are all learning together. Within two months of attending, they started incorporating Chinese words to everyday conversation. Please, thank you, etc. They are always asking me how to say a word/phrase in Chinese so I am brushing up on my Chinese too. They are also more interested in learning different cultures and trying different foods!

Karis is fantastic because the teachers are well qualified and the class sizes are small. The Directress at Karis has extensive experience in education and you can see it in how she patiently deals with the students and how she approaches her school. I also love the fact that it is a ‘one stop shop’. They offer enrichment classes in English, Arts, etc. Because I am there twice a week, I have plenty of time to observe the other classes and talk to other parents. I can tell they do a great job with their enrichment classes too. The kids are proud and excited as well as the parents too!

I definitely recommend Karis Academy. I trust my children’s education to the very qualified hands of their staff!
