It has been a joy to see my three grandsons thrive at Haw River Christian Academy. The Classical Christian education program offered at Haw River has reinforced the discipline and values my grandsons have learned at home. My Kindergardener reads to my! My second grade grandson writes beautiful cursive, my fourth grader is learning latin and all three know and understand many Bible verses. I believe they are receiving a superior education with kind and caring teachers and supportive and active parents. HRCA offers a firm foundation for learning - a jewel in Chatham County NC Nancy Fiorillo Pinehurst NC

HRCA has been a tremendous blessing to our family. The dedicated staff and teachers present a biblical worldview as the foundation of their teaching. Our boys are thriving and have grown spiritually and academically in this classical Christian environment. We have particularly enjoyed the gifted and dedicated teachers, small class size, clear discipline policy, and promotion of proper manners. We are so grateful to have found this schooling option in our area!

Haw River Christian Academy has impressed me from the first moment I toured it. The staff are incredibly committed and very capable. The Christian atmosphere and Biblical worldview is unparalleled. The academics are very impressive and are much more than I had anticipated. Classes are small so there is a lot of individual attention. This school has a big family feel to it. The parents are also very involved and committed further contributing to the family feel. I would very highly recommend this school.

We love having our son at HRCA. As a Classical Christian school, HRCA offers him a sound, Biblical worldview, rigorous academics in a loving and caring environment. We've had a wonderful experience there during the four years he has been there.

Haw River Christian Academy has been an incredible school for our sons. Our oldest has been there since the school opened. I am continually amazed at the level of academics our boys are learning, while keeping a Biblical perspective. It is a relief to me that they learn the classics in Literature and Art, all in a small classroom size so they get individual attention.

HRCA has a phenomenal teacher-student ratio, teachers who chose to work there and love their jobs, and a dedicated group of families, committed to classical, Christian education. HRCA also has a mentor school in Maryland that provides support and training. leaving public school for HRCA was the best decision!!

HRCA is a Classical Christian school that tries daily to show God's love for the children and each other. All of the subjects have Christ at the center of what is taught. My children are thriving at HRCA because it offers loving teachers and a Christ-centered environment along with lots of personal attention because of smaller class sizes.

HRCA is an excellent school that focuses on core learning of mathematics, reading, logic and faith. This is a Christian school where the religious portions of the curriculum are appropriately portioned. This year I have watched my child develop a logic skillset in addition to his/her ability to read and perform mathematics well beyond others children in the same peer group who attend other private and public schools in the region. The student to teacher ratio is low and provides more one on one teaching opportunities. The school recently moved and the new facilities are first class.

We have 2 children who are students at Haw River Christian Academy. Our oldest is in her 4th year, and our youngest is in her 1st year at HRCA. The school has been a wonderful fit for our family. The small class sizes allow for more one on one interaction between student and teacher. The staff is very dedicated to the school and to the students. Our children have grown tremendously as students and as Christians, thanks to HRCA. If you are interested in a Christian and classical education, please consider HRCA.

As a grandparent of 4 children who attend Haw River Christian Academy and a former teacher, I am most pleased with the education my grandchildren are receiving. The teachers are truly dedicated to providing a solid foundation in the academic areas as well as a Christian code of conduct. I feel very fortunate that my grandchildren are being taught by teachers who are challenging them to be the best that they can be. They are kind and loving in their efforts and available to the parents whenever necessary. We are blessed to have this faculty and staff.

Haw River Christian Academy We have chosen for our daughter to attend HRCA for 4 years because of their excellent curriculum. We have moved a lot and we need to be sure that if we move again she will be in the top percent of her grade. A Classical Curriculum is best known for incorporating all of the learning styles into each subject. This is SO very important. No matter which subject your child excels in, they will be presented the material in a way that they can understand and retain!! In conclusion: excellent curriculum, small class sizes, wonderful teachers, and strong PTA. What more could you want from an elementary school?

Haw River is a small Christian school that provides awesome personal attention to its students. I have two boys who attend and I couldn't be happier with the way the teachers bend over backwards to help them. They truly care about the students. The curriculum is Bible-centered and very challenging, which is another reason I appreciate the accessibility to the teachers. We love Haw River.
