    "We are new at Harvest this year (2014-2015) and I have been very impressed. My children have been welcomed in with open arms and have had very personal care. I believe not only are my kids getting a solid education but they are building closer lives with Christ! Both my children state that they learn more about the Bible at HCA than at all the countless Sunday school classes. They are not saying they didn't learn there too:), they just really emphasize what Harvest has done for their knowledge and understanding of the Bible. My daughter, who is in all advanced classes, thinks some of the curriculum could be more challenging We came from a highly ranked public school with many opportunities and options for advanced kids and she is comparing to that. I believe that as new kids to the area and to the school, my kids have been able to adjust and fit right in at Harvest! I am so thankful for all the teachers and staff who have a heart for Christ and for kids! You are making a huge difference in lives whether you realize it or not! You have changed our lives! Thank You!"

    "My three children started their school careers at Harvest and have been attending since 2009. My husband and I have been impressed with the academics and over all dedication and commitment of this schools staff and administration. From the moment we walked into the hallways we felt extremely LOVED! The class sizes are small and every year each of my children have had EXCELLENT teachers who not only teach the academics but also care for them and pray with them. My children really look forward to chapel every week. The Bible base education is outstanding. We feel truly blessed to be able to attend Harvest Christian Academy and would HIGHLY recommend it to anyone!"

    "Our daughter began going to HCA this year, transferring from another Christian school. When we went to the open house last year, we were immediately impressed by not only the sincere care that Marc had for the students, but also the interest and genuine support that the teachers and staff have as well. Also, the facility and top-notch gym were appealing. The positive attitude of the teachers towards the students is refreshing; they really want the students to succeed and do well. They have the posture that expresses an expectation that they will do the right thing, instead of waiting to reprimand them when they fail. The education is excellent and as my daughter says about the teachers, "they're devoted." The food service is even good. I only have positive things to say about the school and would highly recommend it."

    "What a breath of fresh air HCA has been for our family. After homeschooling all his life, my son is now a freshman at Harvest. He made excellent friends before he even walked through the door. The staff has been extremely welcoming and accommodating as my son has transitioned from being home to going in to a classroom setting. Academic learning struggles were detected in him about 5 years ago. Harvest has listened, exhibited beautiful grace in his academic struggles, and are more than willing to walk this road with us as we find the ways my son learns best. We have not experienced any political or negative. No place is perfect. We all have places to improve and grow. I am thankful my son is in an school where this is acknowledged and God's will and plan for improvement is always sought."

    "It WAS a good school... but all Good things come to an end. In the beginning it was great, fun field trips great teachers good friends and horrible food :) but as time went on politics got involved and there were some questionable decisions "higher up" in the church. Soon there must have been money issues because our 5th grade out door ed got canceled and our field trips were not good. On one of our field trips we went to an actual mall but the worst thing of that trip was we couldn't buy anything! The kids were great I miss my friends and the teachers but I'm so glad I left. If you want nice friends with a little drama and good teachers go to this school, if you want a decent education don't..."
