I love the smaller class sizes, hands on projects, different learning experiences, vision and mission of the school. And the godly, engaged staff is superb. It all creates a unique learning atmosphere.

We love Hilton Head Christian Academy! Our daughter has been going since Kindergarten and is now in the 3rd grade. The administration and teachers are amazing and are always there to answer any questions or concerns that we may have.

We have put both of our kids through HHCA from K-12, this being our daughter's senior year. Coming to HHCA is THE best decision we ever made. Our son is thriving at Clemson as a junior Pre-Med student and our daughter is well prepared to leave for college in the fall. Bittersweet that our run at HHCA is almost over but couldn't have asked for a better experience. The fact that our kids agree makes it even better!!

My child struggled emotionally in the large school environment -middle school grades, behavior and choice of friends began to trouble us. We approached Hilton Head Christian and were welcomed with open arms. The administrative and teaching staff individualize their attention toward kids and their efforts have paid off for us. Our teen is happy, making good grades and involved in extracurricular activities. We also take comfort in knowing the other students have set positive examples. HHCA has a place for everyone.

We would not have our children anywhere else! Even our children continue to request to stay at HHCA when given the choice. The love of the Lord, commitment to academic excellence and the special teachers and staff make it an easy decision.

We have three kids at HHCA. I think it is the best option in the area. It is a warm environment and, like most schools, can be as academically challenging as you make it. The faculty and staff are dedicated. My kids know they care. They care about preparing them for college but also their character. HHCA isn't perfect but it is perfect for us.

I have 4 children at the school, and have been there for 8 years. In the last few years HHCA has taken huge strides in improving it's core product. Academics, Arts and Sports are all equally important, but what's most important are the hearts of each child. I can tell you from experience that each faculty member goes above and beyond to know each child, and love each child. Our children have needed some extra academic help over the years, and in every instance, teachers have offered to come early or stay late to give our children the extra help they needed. Bravo HHCA!

This is our second year at HHCA. Our son finds the curriculum challenging and inspiring. He works hard to get good grades and does. It is important to us that his grades reflect knowledge of the subject. We want to be assured that the "A" he receives reflects excellence, and not fluff. We have not been disappointed. HHCA s teachers truly care about their students, work with them when they need extra help, know them as individuals, encourage them in all their endeavors, and challenge them to truly be the best they can be. Our son participates in football, basketball, and baseball at a competitive level, and we look forward to years of growth through participation in the HHCA athletic program. The coaching staff is knowledgeable and instills Christian values that we so highly regard and go far beyond the playing field. His participation in theatre has stretched him and taken him out of his comfort zone. Finally, our son has a growing relationship with Jesus Christ. On a daily basis he is surrounded by teachers and staff members who's mission in life is to serve others and to serve the Lord. For all these reason, I unreservedly give five stars to Hilton Head Christian Academy.

Hilton Head Christian Academy is a fantastic school. I have the privilege to be able to send my children to any school in this area, and I would not send them anywhere else. I have had one child graduate from this school and three children currently attending, the youngest in kindergarten. They get a great academic education, but the school does much more. They train students to be leaders and well-rounded individuals that benefit society. The administrators, teachers and coaches are all dedicated to seeing the students fulfill their potential in all areas of life. The music program is phenomenal, and the athletic programs are exceptional - competitive, yet able to maintain a dedication to high morals, sportsmanship, leadership, education/training, safety, health and balance in a student's life. Probably the most outstanding and important feature of this school is that the faculty is comprised of people of exemplary character who love the students and seek to bring out the best in each student.

HHCA is an incredible place. As a parent of a lower school student, and someone who has been involved in the HHCA community, our daughter has thrived in this nurturing environment. With challenging academics, new fine arts and athletic facilities, and a strong Christian atmosphere, this school is on the rise. If you are thinking about private school on Hilton Head and want a place where the teachers truly care deeply about the well-being of your child, HHCA is the place to be!

My daughter attended for many years. Simply put, she was extremely prepared for college and is performing well above our expectations.

I am surprised by the July 19, 2012 review. I have had two children attend the school. One graduated and one remains. Both children have been in other private/public schools in this area. I have spent countless hours interviewing parents/staff of private schools in Savannah and Hilton Head. HHCA was clearly the front runner when I made the decision to enroll them. I am certain that the HHCA staff, teachers, parents, and student body are not perfect since every human being is imperfect. However, I am certain, especially with the current leadership, that they are creating an environment that fosters growth both spiritually and academically. Conflict will occur at any school. Human beings, especially children, are unpredicatable creatures. The school cannot ever replace the role of the parent. However, they can compliment. HHCA does that well. HHCA does nurture, allow for mistakes, disciplines and takes swift action with noncompliance. Character assination on the staff or teachers is unfair. I personally have not had one credible complaint against the HHCA staff. They are well educated/ They care. They love Christ. They are human. Is the tuition worth it....you bet!

We have spent many years at this school in the hopes of its improvement. The administration talks a good game,however the changes never come. Faculty, as well as staff are for the most part not qualified in their area and weak. As far as the Christian aspect of the school, anything goes here, discipline has become extinct, as well as true Christian teaching and most importantly examples! Be careful with the envirornment your children will be exposed to from administrators, faculty and classmates. The children from this school are considered some of the worst behaved on the island in relations to sex, drugs and alcohol. It's all a "facade".

HHCA is a college preparatory school, so the curriculum is very specific and challenging. Our three children have done well, but with much hard work. The size is a huge advantage because all 3 have been able to be involved in many many extracurricular activities that they wouldn't have been able to in a larger public school. It's an amazing place!!!

My 3 children all graduated from HHCA and have done very well in college. They were well prepared academically as well as spiritually. The school prepares them to be leaders in life and quite honestly, expectations are very high. Their athletic teams are very competitve and have won a number of state championships over the years.

HHCA is not the best school to send anyone to. While the teachers are perfectly capable, the curriculem is miles behind that of private or public schools and it is very small. There are many useless days.

HHCA is a wonderful environment for Christian families to send their children to. The academic programs prepare them for college and their athletic programs offer student/athletes a chance to compete and train to play at the college level if they so desire. The teachers,staff and coaches of HHCA are Christian educators who emphasize the importance of character building and discipleship building in and out of school; on and off the athletic arena.
