School Reviews

We moved our sons to Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy three years ago, and noticed a stark difference in their zeal for learning. They were welcomed with strong open hands and hearts, through the ambassador program, giving each incoming student an already enrolled student to look out for them. This helped my child quickly become acquainted with the other children and not feel estranged at all. The academic rigor is unparalleled and I could not think of a better match for my children.

CHCA does a fantastic job of preparing kids for college and career. One of our kids was a 4-point AP student, who now has a 4.0 in the honors engineering program of a top university. Our other child was a 3.4 student in regular classes, but is now a Dean?''s scholar with a 3.8 GPA in college. Both have landed great co/op jobs. CHCA?''s combination of success in academics, sports, fine arts, and community service is unmatched. Our kids won state in academic competitions, won conference championships in multiple sports, received numerous athletic and academic scholarships, and performed at Music Hall, the Aronoff, Disney World, and several professional stadiums. CHCA develops the whole person ?? academically, emotionally, physically, and spiritually. What a blessing!

I moved my son to Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy for 4th grade after realizing that his current public school could not offer him the thorough education he needed (Common Core changes in public school curriculum). I am more than pleased. The students welcomed him immediately. The Christian based teaching is excellent and the curriculum is perfect. I am extremely pleased with my decision. I highly recommend CHCA.

My excellent experience with CHCA began this year with my son''s enrollment into 4th grade. I chose to avoid a lot of the public school Common Core curriculum problems and give my son a more challenging education. The Christian based curriculum is unmatched. The kids welcomed my son so easily and he fell right into many new friendships. I made the best investment for my son''s future, hands down.
