Current HCA Parent

“HCA has been flexible with students and we greatly appreciate the huge undertaking of making this remote learning possible and engaging.”

Current HCA Parent

“I appreciate HCA and being proactive and getting online classes up and running quickly. It’s a difficult time for everyone and I am glad that it has been as structured as it can be.”

Current HCA Parent

“I am just very appreciative for all the efforts to keep things as normal as possible, the willingness to make work loads a little easier, and the acknowledgement that everyone needs time to unplug. Thank you!”

Current HCA Parent

“Thanks to all of you for your hard work. Many of you have families of your own who need you at this time.”

Current HCA Parent

“HCA was quick with their decision to shut down. Everyone has done a great job on keeping us informed and making the students and parents still feel like they are part of a community and family. I also love the structure of the online classes. Thanks for all HCA has done!”
