We love the school. We love the teacher to student ratio, the academics, the authentic Catholicism, and the opportunities for the kids to flourish. It really has been an amazing school for our family, and when we compare the academics to what other kids we know are doing even at APS's best schools, it reaffirms what a treasure Holy Child really is.

Holy Child is a Catholic school that applies a classical curriculum, and helped our children, grades 2 and 8, make great strides academically. Class size is small, allowing students to receive the attention they need to succeed. The faculty is the most dedicated and orthodox we've ever met. The art and music program is exceptional.

I'm so grateful for HCCS. It is an amazing school with dedicated, caring staff; outstanding academics; a great arts program and an orthodox Catholic environment. It is tough to find a good school in just one of those areas. To find them all rolled into one is a true blessing.
