School Reviews

Hartford Christian Academy has been a huge part of my life. Being in the Class of 2015 I have been at this school for 10 years and I have enjoyed every year. HCA provides you with a challenging academic regiment and top notch fine arts opportunities. One of the biggest benefits of a small school is the ability for every student to get involved in almost any extracurricular activity. I would highly recommend HCA based on its curriculum and the tremendous emphasis the school puts on the Lord and in developing Christian character.
