Where to even start... We have two elementary age children who were attending a different private school when it abruptly closed without notice or warning. We were devastated, to say the least. Harvest Baptist was very close to our children's school, and based on location we decided to tour to see if this school would be a good fit for our children. During the tour, I knew this was the place my children belonged. The school is so clean, modern, fantastic chem lab, science programs, etc. The staff has been welcoming, top-notch, and extremely professional. The love our children feel here is very comforting, and the education is superb. We feel our children have excelled at their new school and are excited for them to be a graduate of the Harvest Baptist. The cost is extremely affordable and gave us the comfort of knowing not only were our children receiving a great education but a faith-based education as well. In today's world, this was a huge concern for us. Harvest Baptist checks all our boxes.

This is our 2nd year at Harvest Baptist, and my daughter loves it! I know my child is in a safe environment with a wonderful, caring staff. The teachers are amazing and truly take an interest in all their students. The high school students are so mannerly, and really seem to look out for the younger ones, which I very much appreciate. Overall, I could not be happier with the education she is receiving and would definitely recommend this school to anyone looking for a Christian-based education for their children.

This is our first year at Harvest Baptist, and we couldn't be happier. The school itself, (brick and mortar) is clean and well maintained. The atmosphere in the building is centered on Christ and that is exactly what we were looking for. My daughter loves it, and that is the bottom line for us as parents.

Our child has been attending HBA since Kindergarten. She is now in the middle school. Harvest provides an excellent academic experience with a very strong Biblical perspective, as well as providing extra-curricular activities. Their music and drama program is well above par. They provide many sports for a school this size. They are constantly working on improving the overall educational experience for each of the students. We are very satisfied with Harvest Baptist Academy.

Harvest Baptist Academy has helped our children develop the communication skills and the academic knowledge to be successful in the world around them. It is a Christian school that allows them to be in the word of God and gain the academic knowledge to apply in the future to be accountable for their actions. It is a safe environment with a wonderful, supportive Pastor as an administrator. I would highly recommend HBA for your child to grow spiritually and academically to be successful in life!

The school also offers a variety of extra-curricular activities from fine arts to sports programs, giving each student an opportunity to have a well-rounded educational experience.

We have four children in the academy and we wouldn't send them anywhere else. The curriculum is great and the teachers truly care for each student. Equally important is the environment. There is a great spirit within the academy, and the staff work to continually show and teach love of Christ to all the students.

Our kids have been going to Harvest since kindergarten and they absolutely love it. The teachers are fantastic, and they keep us up to date on our kid's progress. The curriculum is strong and I love that they are receiving a Christian foundation. The school culture is like a community because the high school kids interact with the elementary kids like friends. I would recommend Harvest to any family.

We have four children at the Harvest Baptist Academy and are so impressed by the teachers and administration. We are so appreciative of their efforts to provide a God-centered education (coupled with a strong academic emphasis) that is in line with what we are trying to teach at home. Plus, our children are enjoying being part of the sport/extracurricular programs and making great friends!

Both of my children attend this academy and I have nothing but positive things to say about this school. The faculty as a whole treats all children as if they are their own and they really strive to make a lasting impact on every child academically, mentally and spiritually.
