"I would recommend HCA to another student because it is really a special experience. You will never forget the feeling you get when walking in the door and all of the smiles that instantly greet you. The teachers teach you so much and are willing to go through any extent to help their students succeed. HCA has really helped me become who I am today, and I am so thankful for all of the experiences, memories, and opportunities they have given me."

"The unique atmosphere at Holy Child is what I think truly makes the school special. We’re a community who works together and wants the best for one another. At Holy Child there is no such thing as a “can’t do” attitude. Students and teachers work together to make things happen. We know that nothing is impossible if we set our minds to it."

"There is an innumerable amount of things that make HCA special, but I think Holy Child is especially unique because we offer a superb education but still manage to have so much fun in the learning process. We are educationally more advanced than many middle schools, but we also enjoy our classes more than many middle schoolers. I, along with many other Holy Child students, find learning at HCA a ton of fun. The teachers understand that kids learn best while having a good time. For example, we wrote and reenacted Romeo and Juliet instead of having a test. I, along with the rest of the eighth grade, understood the story much better than if we had just had a test. In other words, many Holy Child students love to come to school and thoroughly enjoy their education!"
