Holy Child was very disappointing in the upper grades. Weak curriculum and uninterested teachers. We had to hire tutors to help out kids catch up when they transfered out. We felt that it was a very mean and unfair atmosphere, with lots of yelling and demeaning discipline, and favoritism for Kids who's ...  Read more

Moving our child to this school has been the best decision we've made. "i want to go to school" is a phrase heard a lot in our house. The classes are small which allow the teachers to give each student the attention they need and curriculum is challenging. This is the only private Catholic school ...  Read more

This school is not worth the money. We transferred our kids last year to North Shore public schools and they get much more academic attention now than they did at Holy Child. Also the discipline and rules are fairer now, and not demeaning. HC seems to have different standards for different kids. I would ...  Read more

We just finished our first year at Holy Child. Our child settled in quickly and my husband and I were impressed with how much she was challenged and how much she enjoyed it! We had a wonderful year and plan to return! I feel the small class size allowed the teacher to get to know my child and all ...  Read more

I would not recommend this school. A friend recently asked about it, and we loved the lower school,but left a couple of years ago due to a weak curriculum in the upper school, some bullying and special treatment for kids from certain families. That was our experience, and I hear that problems continue.

Holy Child Academy is a school worth exploring. Each student gets incredible individual attention and nurturing. Children are schooled in academics as well as the arts. It is a very happy place...the kids want to come to school every day! You won't find another school anywhere like it.

I recently had to remove my children from this school. The Catholic school we attended and loved for 7 years closed and we were forced to find a new school. We encountered MANY instances of bullying at Holy Child, and the powers that be chose to take the approach that bullying wasn't an issue at the ...  Read more
