Our son is about to finish his first year as a 4 year old at HTA. After seeing the progress and education he was receiving we pulled our daughter our of her Kinder program at another school to have her finish at her second semester at HTA. This is a truly well rounded academic education with studies in Art you would expect at a Jr High level. The class sizes are small and parents are very involved. The field trips where education and enriching for both the parents and students. I can not say enough about the director Ms Juli who truly cares about ever student as if it were her own. She has an open door policy and I knew the progress of my child daily. My only regret is not finding HTA sooner.

HTA has saved my daughter. This was my daughter's 3rd school. After Rancho Solano closed it Missouri campus we choose to send her to Villa Montessori. It had great reviews and a High Tuition to match. I noticed right away that academics weren't the same as at Rancho. The teachers assured me she was still doing all her academics and it was a different environment. I stuck through the Montessori way to give it a try. It was year filled with art, pottery, beads and lots more beads. At the start of her second year I begin to realize she was not ready for Kinder and worried that she would fall behind. I found a hidden gem in HTA. After talking to the director at HTA I pulled my daughter out during winter break and she is now completing her second semester at HTA. Although the class was much more advanced than her, the environment was nurturing and in 5 short months she was caught up and is ready for 1st great.

We have been bringing our daughter to HTA for the past two years and enrolled her in the Kindergarten program for next year. We are really impressed with the things that she has learned, besides English they learn Greek as well along with religion. We truly believe this school has instilled some great qualities that will stay with her and us forever. The Director always has her door open to listen to concerns/comments. She is very good about communicating with the parents. We feel our daughter is in good hands at Holy Trinity Academy.

I have twin daughters that attend this wonderful Christian school. I can only say that the experience has been exceptional. The teachers are caring and smart. The class sizes are small. My daughters are testing 2 grades higher on their assessment tests. They enjoy going to school and don't want to leave when we arrive to pick them up from after care. Other school may have good marketing, but Holy Trinity has RESULTS!!

This school is absolutely wonderful! The teachers truly care and the class sizes are small. We moved to Phoenix not really knowing anyone and the people here treated us like family. The curriculum is rich with subjects such as Greek, math, music, art, and numerous enriching field trips. The children are also given a strong moral foundation and are taught to be compassionate and kind to one another. My daughter told me that she wishes she didn't have weekends, so that she could be at school every day.

Our daughter has had a positive and successful learning experience this year thanks to Holy Trinity Academy. When looking for a preschool with an accelerated curriculum, affordable before and after school care for two working parents, a small class size at a beautiful facility, HTA was the perfect choice. She absolutely loved her teachers and the director who create a loving and nurturing environment, and she is excited every day to go to her school. We love the rich variety of activities that will only lead our daughter's success as she enters kindergarten next year. She was already reading by the middle of the school year and is so proud of herself when giving her older sister Greek language lessons! She has loved her experiences learning all about famous artists like Chagall, music involving the stringed instruments, Greek dancing, and the hands-on science projects! When looking for a preschool, you won't go wrong by choosing HTA!

Our son loves HTA. The teachers are great and really care about the children. He has learned so much academically and socially. We never have to worry when we drop him off at school. We know he is happy and learning new things!

Holy Trinity Academy is an EXCELLENT school! My two children attend HTA - the oldest is in Kindergarten and has attended since Pre-K 3, and the youngest is in Pre-K 3. They both absolutely love school and their teachers. The curriculum is advanced and my Kindergartner will be doing first and second-grade classwork before the end of the year! The student-teacher ratio is very low, which allows the kids to have individualized attention. In addition to a stellar academic curriculum, they have classes in art, music, Greek Language, and Orthodoxy. This is a school for everyone - and the best part is that it's affordable when compared to other private schools! I HIGHLY recommend HTA for your child. You won't regret it!

Three of my children attended HTA and received an excellent education. They have formed close relationships with faculty members who truly care about them as human beings and as students. They have a strong art and music program and they teach computer science that applies to real life situations. The teachers are the kind of people that you want to have as role models for your kids. The administration tries out new strategies for working with kids; they gives creative license to teachers to try new ideas. I am very happy my children received such a fine education. They are learning how to learn and I love that.

I have had the pleasure and privilege of being an educator for fifteen years. This is my first year teaching at HTA and it has been very exciting to see teachers that also feel it is a pleasure and privilege to teach the children. Every teacher from grade level teachers to special area teachers give all their heart everyday. The educators are well trained and have mastered the craft of reaching children. The staff has raised the bar well beyond state standards. Because the children are put in a nurturing environment, they are able to reach these high expectations. Most of the children are performing above grade level and a handful are performing close to two grades above state requirements. It is an amazing thing to witness. The school has incorporated string, computer, Greek language, music and physical education classes.

As a parent I have been very happy with my child's experience at Holy Trinity Academy. The small class size, individual attention received, and professionalism of each teacher has helped my child become prepared for the challenges ahead. I would highly recommend this school to anyone interested.

Kindergarten program is below average. Academics are not emphasized and my child left knowing less than his friends from a public school. There were only 10 kids in the class and still there was no individualism. Math program they use is good but it is not implemented well. Mathematics are definitely weak at this school. Some days went by without any academics being done at all! My son called them "no work days". At this young age the children need repetition in order to learn but they don't get that repetition in the Kinder class. A lot of work was done by us at home to make sure he is moving forward. We are obviously switching schools and we definitely know that he is not ready for first grade at another school. Principal is the priest of the school but really not a very present figure.

Small calss size=more attention for your kids. Teachers are amazing. Preschoolers are learning about fine arts, classics, respect, music, religious education. You don't have to be orthodox to attend. The teachers are very knowledgeable on gifted children as well. This school is very traditional in the best sense, they have a christmas pageant every year and graduation ceremonies. My child was shy but since has come out of the shell and is articulate and begs to attend everyday.
