We have experienced a wonderful education for our child at CHA. The religious education is the best I have seen. I myself attended Catholic schools, and this education is very thorough. I am learning along with my child, it is special to share.

This is a wonderful faith filled school that has taught my children the most important thing in life "How to treat people and have compassion for others" The education was excellent and has been a great foundation for my child to continue to high school as well.

Cardinal Hickey Academy is an outstanding private school that not only teachers its students the values to live by, but also provides a top notched education that you will not receive in other schools in the area. The students are well disciplined at an early age so that they may handle the rigorous academic program this school offers each child. The facility is beautiful. The classrooms are spacious and the new wing provides an updated computer lab, lecture hall, and a brand new library. The school s extracurricular activities focus on the arts with a school wide musical that involves grades 5 through 8 each year. The children also love the many sport teams that the school organizes for league play.

The academic program is far above anything you will find in the area! My students and myself love it here. My children look forward each school year to participating in the athletic , art and drama programs which are great! The school has shown my child how to work hard to succeed at challenging tasks and this will be a life long lesson that they will take with them throughout life. Great School to send your child you will not regret it!
