I LOVE this school! They are more like family in my opinion. The teachers are always available if you have any type of question/concern and that is extremely important to me. The classes are small so your child will get the one on one attention he or she needs. The education is top notch, both academically and spiritually. I would recommend Holmesburg Christian Academy to anyone looking for both a quality and spiritual education!

Holmesburg is one of those places where you know your child is safe. It's small. All the teachers know each of the children. They are always mindful of those little nuances that happen throughout the day like, who had a rough day, who struggled through a test, or who scored the winning jumpshot. They are like family. The kids linger with their teachers, joke with them, simply hang out during their free time because they feel that comfortable. It's simply a relief to know they are loved and cared for this much.

Holmesburg has enriched the lives of my children and our entire family. It is more than a school, the staff members are an extended family that sincerely cares about our children. In addition they help each child reach their academic potential. I love this school.
