Harvest Christian Academy Reviews

I began attending Harvest Christian Academy in the sixth grade. I was hesitant at first, as I was starting there second semester, but now I look back and am so glad that I attended the school. The community at HCA is one of a kind: the teachers genuinely care for you, the students are accepting and loving, and each week chapel is held and continually convicts students in their walks with Christ. Additionally, the food from the cafeteria is absolutely amazing, and the facilities (including the main gym) are beautiful and quite well-kept. One thing that I would improve about HCA would be the dress code. Kids in elementary school through middle school are required to wear a uniform, but over the years these rules have become less enforced. I would vote to remove them completely from the middle school at the very least. Overall, this school is absolutely wonderful and I highly recommend attending. Go Lions!

As a staff member whose children have been attending since 3-year old preschool, I could not be more thankful for our experience at Harvest Christian Academy. My children are now 13 and 15 and I have witnessed them grow academically and spiritually, along with countless students I have taught, because of their experience here. The students at HCA without question will make a big impact for Christ as they go out into the world He created!
I went to HCA from 2nd grade through graduation and loved every year! At HCA, I was able to grow and learn through many different opportunities, from sports teams to NHS to worship team to student council. I love how my teachers were always eager to encourage us in our walks with the Lord, and they always had a listening ear. I was also very challenged in my academics, but my teachers always believed in me. Going into college, I felt much more prepared than many of my peers here.
