    "I have two children currently attending this school and have had another graduate. I could not be happier. The teachers are great and I cannot complain about the quality of education. Not only are students are getting into competitive High schools but they are receiving a quality education in a caring environment, something that is lacking in many schools now a days. Over the years, HCA has seen tremendous improvement and I believe that the school continues to head in the right direction."

    "HCA has done a great job in recovering after the hurricane. However it has a long way to go in providing high quality education for the children. Especially in the pre school it is following a one model fits all strategy and not providing challenges to the children to advance based on their individual skills and abilities. The teachers are not able to keep them motivated and inspiring them to do more. Today in the education world as current researches are all suggesting, educators and reformers are all trying to bridge the gap and have a personalized instruction cylce and student driven learning cycle to get to common core and provide world class education. HCA needs to invest more in Professional Development for teachers and improvind thier ability to deal with children from diverse backgrounds and foster a love for learning."

    "I have two children attending HCA (PreK 3 and 2nd grade) and I could not be happier with the education. We have thoroughly researched all educational option in Hoboken, from the charter schools to the $15K plus private schools and I am so glad to have chosen HCA. Not only are they getting a strong educational foundation and getting into some of the most competitive HS int he area, they are doing so in a loving and caring environment. On a daily basis I see how kind the older kids are to the younger ones - something all too rare in today's world. The teachers really care and are excellent. This year alone the 3rd grade teacher was selected as New Jersey State Council of the Knights of Columbus Parochial School Teacher of the Year! While nothing is perfect, Mr. McGrath has done wonders since joining HCA. I've seen a marked improvement in virtually all areas. My husband and I had all intentions of moving out of Hoboken simply due to the lack of good school options. But with the direction that HCA is moving we have decided to stay and raise our children here!"

    "My family is very happy with the education our daughter is receiving at Hoboken Catholic Academy. She has been going for 3 years since PK3 and is finishing up her K year. Our son will start PK3 in September. We are very impressed with the new Principal, Mr. McGrath who joined the school in July 2013. The commitment and dedication of the teachers is wonderful. The school is a wonderful community that has activates and fundraisers for the children and families which brings everyone together. The classroom environment is very caring, but structured which allows the children to thrive. We feel blessed to be at the school."

    "My daughter started HCA in Pre-k3 and is now a successful third grader. My son is reading, adding and subtracting easily as he finishes kindergarten. Both of them have wonderful friends and respect for teachers. We enjoy being part of a down to earth community of parents. We are are amazed at the progress made in one year after Hurricane Sandy destroyed the building and lowered enrollment. Under the leadership of a new principal we are stronger than ever. I disagree with all the previous ratings."
