School Reviews

5  
We love this school... Forsyth County is suppose to have some the best public schools in Georgia and this school is leaps and bounds better than our public option. The teachers love the kids. There is an enthusiasm at the school unlike any we have experienced. We spent several years at our local public school and found the programs focused on budgets and testing scores rather than core fundamentals. We are happy to say we have found a place where our kids can succeed. We questioned the cost of private school, however feel HCA is reasonably priced. While the facilities are not the best to look at from the outside, inside they are pretty nice. The students, teachers, and adminstration are what make a school and HCA is top notch.

SSAT and ISEE scores are one part of the total picture which most private school admissions staff review. These standardized tests reveal what you have learned in key mastery areas.
Do you think your son has a learning disability? Not sure what to do? A special needs school might be the way to go.
You thought everything was set. The test scores were excellent. She had glowing teacher recommendations. The visit and the interview went well. But the school didn't accept your child. What do you do now?
