    "Not a very Christian or caring atmosphere in this school. It felt all about business and money, rather than a solid , thoughtful education. Many parents are apparently attracted to the glitzy communion ceremony, but that is not what we were looking for. We heard the school had to cut the tuition in half due to low enrollment, but even at a lower price, We would decide against this school."

    "I'm a student who will be going to the school next year for the first time. Since my school only goes to sixth grade and HCA goes to eight I chose to go to HCA.after taking a trip to the class to see how the learned I was very surprised.eeryone knows eachother and it's a wonderful atmosphere. The education is very far ahead and a grade level above what most sixth graders learn. The teachers are phenomenal and the music department Is superb. All I can say is that the HCA staff is truly devoted to making students education Borden and give them post itube experiences."

    "I am a parent of a Kindergarten student, new to the school this year. Our life's mission is providing our child with the advantage a "better than" education affords you. A class of 13 kids, gym 3 days a week, movement 5 days a week, Spanish AND French every week from kindergarten, music, art, computers...and, the ability to participate in a sport from kindergarten (tennis), the ability to take musical instrument lessons from kindergarten (piano)...AMAZING! The school's mission to educate the whole child is clearly evident in the daily schedule. As a parent the importance of of just that (as early as possible in a child's life) is clear when your very happy child can't wait to go to school every day and is so proud of herself with her new achievements! It's affirmed when she sings little songs in French on the way home, and amazingly can read a list of 30 sight words (and spell 97% of them) by November! Holy Child Academy welcomed us as a family into an environment with a great sense of community. Together we know we made the right decision and this 1st impression warms my heart for what the next 8 years has in store for my daughter!"

    "Holy Child was very disappointing in the upper grades. Weak curriculum and uninterested teachers. We had to hire tutors to help out kids catch up when they transfered out. We felt that it was a very mean and unfair atmosphere, with lots of yelling and demeaning discipline, and favoritism for Kids who's parents donated a lot of money.They " win" academic awards, get good High School placements ,etc.. Its not a Christian atmosphere - it seemed like more " flash" than substance."

    "Moving our child to this school has been the best decision we've made. "i want to go to school" is a phrase heard a lot in our house. The classes are small which allow the teachers to give each student the attention they need and curriculum is challenging. This is the only private Catholic school on Long Island. Here the children are encouraged to embrace their spirituality. The parent community is very welcoming. The campus is beautiful. It is truly a hidden gem."
