Open Quote We are so lucky to have found HCA! Lucas is in the Nursery 2 class currently. He has always been an extremely curious and active child. HCA has given him the opportunities flourish and grow so much in such a short amount of time. His language skills have improved immensely and he is learning so much from his ABC’s, to manners and numbers. Not only is he getting an amazing education, but he is forming lasting friendships. Lucas is so excited to go to school everyday to see his teachers and friends. HCA truly offers a family feel. Everyone already knows Lucas. When we attend events, even the older kids say hi to him and address him by name. We have such piece of mind knowing that Lucas will learn and grow at HCA through the 8th grade. We couldn’t ask for a better partner in raising our child. Close Quote

Open Quote HCA is an amazing school. It's small but packs a great punch! The faculty and staff are attentive and caring toward each student, meeting them where they are so that their academic experience is all that it can be. I love the STEAM lab and the introduction the students get to more intricate and cross curricular activities. Close Quote

Open Quote I feel so lucky to have found HCA for my two boys. Since starting there this year, they are enthusiastic about going to school each day. My sons are so stimulated by all the activities provided each day, including STEAM education in the innovation lab, Spanish, multiple phys ed classes each week, piano instruction, chess club, music class, and art class. My kindergartner loves to bring home his clay creations from the kiln, and my two-year-old especially loves the new Music Together program that is integrated into the nursery and PreK program. The Montessori methods used in the early childhood program have allowed both boys to achieve so much at their own pace. The teachers celebrate their individual achievements and the children learn to be proud of their classmates as well as themselves. I couldn't feel better about sending them to school. Holy Child is a place where each child is loved and is encouraged to grow in love for others. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio

Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
