My daughter attends Hillsdale Academy. When we moved to the area I was desperate to find her a decent enough school to attend. I toured 8 different seemingly good options in the area. When I toured Hillsdale Academy, it was HANDS-DOWN the best fit for our family. I was very impressed with not only the curriculum, but I honestly could not find a thing wrong. My daughter is in her second year of attendance at Hillsdale Academy. I have no regrets whatsoever in choosing Hillsdale Academy. Public Schools are mandated by Common Core and many other, in my opinion, negative, attributes. They teach cursive handwriting, and much MUCH more. My daughter is learning French, in the first grade! It is worth EVERY PENNY, her future is priceless. I am rest-assured I am providing the best educational opportunity I can knowing how this school has improved her learning and her future.

Great school with great teachers who care about you as a student. Great curriculum that makes you into a better human being, and shapes you for the world.
I would not trade my time at Hillsdale Academy for the world. It is an integral part of who I am, and the people I met there will always be my second family. True, I had to work harder than I could ever have imagined -- for instance, each senior class must do an independent science research project and write a 15 to 20-page paper for the humanities on top of the college application process and regular coursework, which already takes 4 to 5 hours a night if you want an "A." However, you also get the benefit of the trip to Greece and Italy for all juniors and seniors every other year, which is amazing! Everyone gets to go, no matter the financial difficulty, because the faculty and community is so dedicated to ensuring that everyone gets to cap off their classical, liberal arts education with a two-week trip to the places where Western Civilization was born. Also, if you are a part of the French club, you get to go to France, which I also did. My experience on the track and basketball teams were incredible, and I will always have a particular fondness for my time in the drama program, as I hope to pursue acting someday. Hillsdale Academy's productions really inspired me to the craft, and I finished out my career there portraying the character of Sarah Brown in "Guys and Dolls," which was a dream come true.
