Wonderful school for not only incredible academic growth but spiritual and character growth as well. Equipped with an excellent staff who genuinely care for each child that walks through the door. Each member of the HCA team will do all they can to ensure your child's success. Both of my kids love going to school each morning. Can't recommend HCA enough, it truly is one of a kind.

My children LOVE Hillsborough Christian Academy. The teachers are kind and truly caring. They seem happy to be teaching and it's clear to the kids that they matter. The classes are small so my kids get the attention that is helping them really thrive. There's a reading specialist who makes the rounds and a huge woodsy fenced school playground. This school is a hidden gem!!! It's new (within the first 8 years) so they are full of enthusiasm and energy. (All the teachers stand out at the pick up line every day!) My husband and I love that the kids are also growing in character - not just academics. I very very much recommend this school. We have tried charter, Montessori and public and this is by far the best.

My children have attended since they were 4yrs old and are currently in 1st grade. They are adding a grade per year until 6th grade. Mrs. Amy is terrific, the facilities & playgrounds are great. The curriculum greatly exceeds Common Core basics, challenges students to their greatest individual potential (not a common denominator), and all with a healthy Christian worldview. Website isn't the greatest but I''m glad the focus is in the classrooms.

A parent and I chat about finding the best school for her daughter. While the parent may be fictitious, her questions are quite typical of the kind of questions and concerns parents have when thinking about sending their children to private school.
