School Reviews

I visited this school with a friend who was interested in it for her son. I was so impressed with the layout, discipline, curriculum, and structure they used, it wasn't difficult to figure out this was what I was looking for for my daughter. HCA has been good to my family since she started attending this school in 2008 at the 6th level. They use diagnostic testing to see where the student should be placed. They use the A.C.E. program (Accelerated Christian Education). Our daughter completed this program through the 12th level (Senior in HS) which prepared her for college. I feel this program gave her an edge over many of her peers from public school. She excelled in college, graduating with a double-major in education. I attribute her success to the A.C.E. program and HCA staff. I volunteered the entire time my daughter was a student and still volunteer here to this day. I believe in Christian education, the A.C.E. program and whole-heartedly support the leadership and staff of the school. Each child has the opportunity to excel (if they apply themselves). HCA is A+++ in my book!!
