Hickory Christian Academy Reviews

Having been attending since first grade, I have, overall, enjoyed and valued my time at HCA. It is always difficult in the moment to value education; it is easy to complain. However, with hindsight in mind, I believe I received some of the most quality education available in my city of Hickory. Throughout my near twelve years enrolled at HCA, I have always felt that my instructors genuinely cared about my education, success and even my health. One thing that Hickory Christian Academy might need to work on is communications between the student body and faculty. Quite a few times my fellow students have felt helpless and ignored. Whether it be prom committee or dress code complaints, we deserve to be heard.

I came to HCA in the third grade. All of the students were very welcoming and eager to be your best friend. This welcoming atmosphere continues all through high school. The class sizes allow you to connect with your teacher and classmates. If I could change one thing, I would like to have more experienced teachers, especially for our harder classes.
Overall education is ok. Expect more from a private education. Mostly disappointed in the unequal treatment of the students. I have observed the preferential "overlooking" of students behavior if the child parents overly involved (stay at home moms), those that giving lots financially, and/or teachers child that has occurred several times from students other than my own. I would caution a Working family before committing to this school. Unless, you are willing to give "lots" of extra donations.
