We have 2 kids in HCA and coudn''t be happier. They are testing a year ahead (or more) of their grade level and they are growing in their faith. But what sets HCA apart is that every child feels included and loved. Every color and economic situation is represented. My kids didn''t feel like they fit in and didn''t want to go to school before and now they love it and feel welcomed and loved. We also didn''t think we could afford it but HCA worked with us to make it possible (69% of kids on scholarship) . We are very thankful for the school.
