School Reviews

All 3 of my children have attended Harford Christian School since K4. My oldest daughter will graduate this year and has already been accepted into the college of her choice. I could not be happier with the entire experience. The education that my children have and are receiving is as good or better than anywhere else in the area. There is also the added benefit of the material being presented by instructors who hold a Biblical world-view. Excellence starts at the top at HCS, and it is evident in every aspect of their offerings, from fine arts, to highly competitive athletics programs. I will never regret sending my children to Harford Christian School, and they are as enthusiastic about being there as we are.

Harford Christian is an excellent value with high standards in all areas of education, behavior and extra-curricular participation. The school insists on safety, order, manners, reverence for God and respect. Godly people joyously engage with and teach the students out of love. It is a very wholesome, warm and special place conduce to learning.
