Cardinal Hickey Academy is one of the best schools in Calvert Co. All of our students leave very well prepared for High School, whether it be public or private. Year after year the students have been accepted to their 1st choice high schools. Many times I have had students return to tell me how well ...  Read more

What was once a great school has significantly declined. The once challenging curriculmn is now a one size fits all, so if your child is advanced or struggling you will need to supplement on your own time. There are no longer sisters on the staff, with the principal being replaced by a lay person almost ...  Read more

I can't say enough about the pre-school programs at this school! Very nurturing and I am amazed at how much my boys are learning, both academics and from biblical teachings at ages 3 and 4! It even extends to pretend play at home where my 3yr old had a blanket on his head and said, 'I'm pretending ...  Read more

The curriculum is behind that of other schools and students like me have transitioned to a public school and are behind because of CHA.

I cannot imagine a child leaving the eighth grade with more from a school than CHA. The strong religion presence at the school creates a contsant influence in the students thoughts, actions and decisions that will remain with them all of their lives. The strong parent involvement, social functions, ...  Read more

I love the new principal.. The Sisters from Nashville are wonderful... The lay teachers have been great to work with. The communication is always open and they reply to my phone calls immediately.

Catholic schools are the BEST! Sure, academics are important in Catholic schools, but this school, as so many schools led by the Dominican Sisters of St. Cecilia, will put your children's souls as priority! The Dominicans will help you, the parent, to strengthen your child's faith so they will get ...  Read more

Well, I'm pretty happy that I'm done here, but I will miss all of my friends. Not so for the teachers. There are only two or three teachers that really help and care a bout your child and I have only only one class with any of them every week. The teachers are commonly unfair and love the new detention ...  Read more
