Holy Child Academy is a wonderful school. After researching and visiting a number of private schools in our area, we chose HCA. The challenging curriculum, small class size, and amazing faculty and staff have confirmed that Holy Child Academy was the right choice for our son. He is extremely happy and has grown both socially and academically.
