All the teachers I ve known at Harvest Christian Academy work hard to show the love of Christ to their students. The curriculum is challenging but what I think is the most important aspect of HCA is the abundant volunteer opportunities. These opportunities provide exceptional training that goes beyond the books and an education that is community-centric.

Harvest Christian Academy is a educational institution that focuses on academic as well as the moral and spiritual well being of its students. For a balanced approach to your child's education in a society where our public schools are failing,I wholly recommend HCA. Go Knights!

While it is the hope of many to send their children to a socially healthy and ideal learning environment, this school is not much more than a religious daycare center hidden behind the guise of being an educational institution. Students are not so much taught course material as they are simply supervised while left in a room to figure out the various curriculum for themselves. The majority of the staff have poor (if any) formal training or experience in working in the fields of study that they are expected to "teach." (In fact, the "School of Tomorrow" organization that supplies the school's curriculum only requires one week of training for individuals to be granted teaching accreditation.) Let's face it, if any of the authority figures working at this institution actually had any real teaching skill, experience, or ability, they would have a job teaching at a legitimate school and not here. If you truly care for your child, there are certainly better places to send them. If you wish them to grow well (educationally, spiritually, or emotionally), there is no reason to sentence them to the type of abject neglect that this school has shown me and so many others.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

Oops! We currently do not have any teacher information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
