    I was searching for a long time for a good Christian school and came across HCA (Hawthorne Christian Academy) After a long test for my son and a two interviews my son got it. I can't be any happier. First of all he loves the school he is nurturing wonderful christian friendships he is learning a lot about God and the Bible HCA not only proved to be an amazing Christian environment for him it is also great in academics. Having grown in another country where education is the main focus I was worried my son would not be taught that good here in the States. Well I am glad I was wrong. I really hope the school continues doing the great job they do for many years to come!!

    My husband and I moved from NYC to NJ so our son could attend HCA which had an excellent reputation for high standard of education and strong Bible based teaching - and we have not been disappointed. It's a great school - small classes ensure nothing falls through the cracks and lovely to know that what we teach at home from the Bible is backed up by the teaching at HCA. Parent involvement is encouraged and appreciated - I like that! This is my son's 6th year at HCA and he loves it and is challenged academically spiritually socially and emotionally. A well rounded school with teachers who love the kids and impart a desire to learn and grow in all areas of life.

    My daughter had an amazing four years in HCA's high school. The teachers were wonderful role models. She had very clear direction in choosing a college. She is a college junior now and credits HCA with providing an excellent academic foundation and the life application tools to defend her faith.

    A nurturing parental relationship is critical to healthy child development. Hawthorne Christian Academy provides yet another nurturing environment for children beside that of the family unit. The academics are very rigourous and the Christian education is phenomenal.

    Hawthorne Christian is an excellent school. The teachers are concerned about the children something I most definitely looked for when I enrolled by son four years ago. When a child attends school peace should be in the atmosphere - you get this at HCA. God is here and so are His people.

    Hawthorne Christian Academy is a fabulous school. My son's teachers give him the learning tools kindness and positive structure that he needs to build a solid foundation. I can't imagine our lives without being a part of this great school and all the families who are also a part staff and parents alike.
