My children are thriving at HCA! Their academics are top-notch and they can speak, in Lower School, about concepts I had not encountered until high school. They are also treasured by the faculty and staff and I leave them each day knowing they are in the care of wonderful mentors.
We are so lucky to have found HCA! Lucas is in the Nursery 2 class currently. He has always been an extremely curious and active child. HCA has given him the opportunities flourish and grow so much in such a short amount of time. His language skills have improved immensely and he is learning so much from his ABC’s, to manners and numbers. Not only is he getting an amazing education, but he is forming lasting friendships. Lucas is so excited to go to school everyday to see his teachers and friends. HCA truly offers a family feel. Everyone already knows Lucas. When we attend events, even the older kids say hi to him and address him by name. We have such piece of mind knowing that Lucas will learn and grow at HCA through the 8th grade. We couldn’t ask for a better partner in raising our child.
I have been a parent at HCA for nearly six years now, starting with my son. My daughter has joined him in what is now her third year at the school. My husband and I love the school and really appreciate the sense of community we've found there. My children love coming to school and are gently challenged out of their comfort zones of learning with nurturing and caring faculty and staff. They each have so many amazing learning experiences and their voices are valued. I would highly recommend this school to anyone who wants to thoroughly enjoy the full experience of what school should be.
Our child has been at HCA for the past 4 years and we can't say enough great things about our school. Happy kids...superb education...welcoming community. Best value around!
Holy Child Academy is going downhill!!! I loved HCA when I was there, but I left due to numbers. Activities are being cut, and the education besides math doesn't focus on the student's skills and levels. I had an excellent math education and the activities are great. But I would not send your child there, because everyone is leaving including teachers. NINE Spanish teachers taught class of 19. I would think twice before sending your child there. If you love small schools, great, but if you want your education to be more personalized, don't come here. Just think before coming here.
Over the past ten years, Holy Child Academy has been a second home for our family. My son and two daughters have been nurtured, challenged, encouraged, and supported by the HCA community of teachers, administrators, parents, fellow students and alumni. The energy and engagement experienced in the classrooms inspire students to go beyond their comfort level, test their limits, and achieve to the best of their abilities. My husband and I are deeply grateful for the opportunities Holy Child has provided for our children's academic, artistic, and spiritual development.
Holy Child Academy is a great school. You get out of it what you put into it. The students and staff are genuinely friendly and eager to help. The students are able to participate in multiple activities from sports to theatrical productions. This school grooms its young people for leadership as they are the ones who do a lot of the work especially during prayer services, school tours and special activities. Children who attend this school will definitely stand out socially and academically.
Teachers attend seminars and classes to stay on top the latest tools
Secure building, always running various drills with children
Everything is great except the dress code. It lacks consistency and practically changes every year.
The resources and facilities could use some work. The one on one teacher-student experience is not its best in this area.
There is always someone in the school office to take care of things. A nurse also comes every few months to check up on the health of all the students.
There is such a warm and family atmosphere at this school. However, there is also a great academic atmosphere where students excell.
