Hudson View Christian Academy is a small religious school one block off of Broadway in North Yonkers. The school teaches the core curriculum materials well as verified by standardized teaching and emphasizes character development and Biblical teaching. That along with small classrooms and dedicated staff are its strengths. Its weaknesses would be its facilities, overemphasis of video teaching especially in the upper grades, almost total lack of extracurricular activities including P.E., and possible deficiencies in staff credentialing. Considering this is a private school with no government assistance, the cost of tuition for a parent with Christian concerns still make this a viable option. As with all reviews, do your OWN research.
The school has dedicate teachers who have all been here for over 10 years. The curriculum is excellent the mixed grade classes work surprisingly well. It helps both struggling and advanced students. My son is graduating after 13 years there. He is well prepared for going into the world and living for Christ.
Great Academics -- National Award! A student from Hudson View just competed in a National Academic Competition where only the top winner of each State could compete. The student placed in the top 3 academic winners in the Nation! Way to go Hudson View.
I am amazed at how much my son has learned at this small school. he has also made great frends and loves school. The teachers really love the children and do everything possible to help them be successful. The teachers are there to serve God by ministring to the children. This school is one of the best kept secrets in Westchester.
HVCA is a safe place for children. The classroom setting are small and developing character is above all. The school environment is teacher center, it's not a data driven school school and is really one size fits all.
This school was great until about high school. The elementary and middle school have a great cirriculum that has kids reading by first or second grade. In high school the classes got a little mixed up and they had all of high school taking the same history for example when the older kids should be taking something else. Great school for younger kids.
