Decatur Heritage Christian Academy is a great school! Our children are challenged academically every day through a Christ-centered education. In addition, they have the opportunity to participate in many extracurricular activities and sports. The students who graduate from DHCA are prepared to be successful in college and life beyond college. For example, we have a graduate who will be attending graduate school at Oxford in England the fall of 2018 and another who was just awarded an Emmy!

Decatur Heritage Christian Academy is a great school! The school strives to prepare students for lives of impact and we are seeing it in our children and our friend's children. They are being prepared academically as well as spiritually. In addition, our children have the opportunity to take part in many extracurricular activities and sports. We couldn't be more pleased!
DHCA is an academic heavy school. The small classes create a family like environment and foster a unique student-teacher relationship. This is a Christian school so Bible class is required and is really rigorous. I wish that this school had stronger extra-curricular programs such in art, theatre, sports, etc. There are few AP classes but while I was attending two were added and the administration is eager to add more. The diversity of the school is also limited. Academically, this school prepares you for college. Socially, the students can be sheltered from secular ideologies.
