Parent and Alumni Reviews

  • Holmesburg Christian Academy has provided my daughter with the best possible foundation a parent could ask for from a school. Students are provided with the social, emotional, academic and spiritual tools they need in order to become amazing human beings. God bless the staff, teachers and leaders at Holmesburg Christian Academy. We are so blessed to have found this school.

  • My daughter did not even wait on us to walk her to class on her first day back to school. She is excited to get to what feels like her second home with staff that love and care about her. So thankful for Holmesburg, where my daughter is growing mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. Keep up the great work!

  • Awesome Christian school. My child attended from preschool to graduation (8th grade) this year "17". I'm most hopeful she will take the values she has attained during her time here and apply them to high school and life. I recommend this school 100%. They will be missed.

  • I LOVE this school! They are more like family in my opinion. The teachers are always available if you have any type of question/concern and that is extremely important to me. The classes are small so your child will get the one on one attention he or she needs. The education is top notch, both academically and spiritually. I would recommend Holmesburg Christian Academy to anyone looking for both a quality and spiritual education!

  • My Daughter is a year from graduating there and my Son is currently enrolled. I would highly recommend the school for several reasons. 1. The teachers are awesome. They love to teach and more importantly they love the kids. Your child will get the individual attention that you cannot get in a public school. 2. Your child will have an opportunity to participate in activities that they may not be able to in public schools or large private schools (sports, music, drama, art). 3. HCA will teach Biblical values that will last a lifetime. There is a difference between just learning things right and learning right things. 4. The kids are great! You don't see the same "issues" that you will typically see in other schools (bullying, foul language use, disrespectful behavior, drugs, sex, ...etc.). 5. It's affordable. Some of the other private schools charge way too much and is out of reach for a lot of parents who want to send their kids. I found HCA to be the most reasonable in the area.

  • I graduated from Holmesburg back in 1991. The current principal, Linda Lewis was on staff even back then. No one stays at a place this long unless the genuinely love the school and the students. This school prepared me academically to perform in a large public high school better than my peers. It also prepared me to stand up for my faith and to not fall into the peer pressure that teens face every day. I am proud of being a graduate of HCA and proud to see how it just gets better and better every year. This school is a blessing to the Holmesburg/Mayfair area.
