School Reviews

5.0 Stars   05/17/16
My second child is getting ready to graduate from Hillsdale Academy. I couldn't recommend this school more highly! The faculty is outstanding, and the curriculum relevant and challenging. Where other schools "teach to the book", Hillsdale Academy, teaches to the student. Character building is as much part of the experience, as scholarly learning is. We are blessed to have this educational institution as an option, in the shadow of Hillsdale College. As my daughter choses which college to attend in the fall, her ACT score of 32, ensures she will have more than enough offers to chose from. Thank you Hillsdale Academy for all you do, and all you are!
