School Reviews

We adore Hamilton. Our daughter started in 6th grade and now in high school. Incredible education and the teaching staff is awesome, hands on with the students and small classrooms so they get more one on one teaching time. I feel that this school is one of the best kept secrets in Lake Charles. A great Christian environment for your child to get a great education. Hamilton feels like family

Hamilton is a wonderful school and has been such a blessing to my family. My son and daughter both attend and have since Pre-K. They participate in many sports and have a great sense of pride in their school. The teachers not only provide an excellent academic background for my children, but also teach them how to have a relationship with Jesus. I love HCA! Go Warriors!
