How our families feel

“The most important reason I would recommend PHCA is because they address character and integrity just as much as a strong academic base. I want my boys to be raised in an environment where they understand that respect, integrity and character are key elements to living life out here on Earth. Obviously, a place where they can study the Bible, pray and be surrounded by people with the same Christian values is a great place to develop spiritual maturity.”

“Our family is so blessed by PHCA. We love the smaller classrooms that allow for more individualized learning. The teachers and staff are amazing. They are so kind and caring to the students. It is a blessing to me to know that my kids teachers are praying for them. We have loved connecting with other families at the school and my kids have made amazing friendships here. The staff here know each kid and connect with them daily compared to schools where they are so large and your kid ends up just being another number there. The teachers balance the education with family life outside of school. We are so blessed by the school and pray it will bless other families and kids too.” — Gerber Family

“Unsolicited from my 1st grader who started in October: ‘I was scared when I first started going, because I didn’t know about God. Then I learned about God, and I wasn’t scared, because I learned He’s watching me.’” — Braucks Family

“All the staff at Pine Harbor knows the kids well and interacts with each of them throughout the day. They are also very friendly with the kids as well as the parents. The student to teacher ratio is incredible. I believe this alone has increased my child’s interest in school and the subjects they are teaching at Pine Harbor. Lastly, and most importantly, the fact that faith is taught in the school on a regular basis has been a blessing to my wife and I as well as my boys who are getting to learn in this manner.”

“We are so grateful to Pine Harbor Christian Academy for so many reasons, but two of our favorite are these. First, we are so impressed with how easily Scripture gets in their hearts and brains and more importantly – STAYS there! Our 3 children who have attended PHCA so far know the Bible even better than I do, they can remember where verses are found, the details of Biblical stories, timelines, geography, life application of Biblical principles and so much more. We are so thankful that information and God’s truth is truly in their hearts. Second, in this world where character, morals, ethics and tolerable behaviors seem to continually decline at such a rapid pace, we are so incredibly thankful for the emphasis that PHCA puts on building character. When our children are out in the community, we are continually told how well-behaved, how well-mannered, and what tender, caring hearts our children have. It means the world to us to know that PHCA puts emphasis on serving others, caring for others, and giving of yourself to make this world a better place for all. Communities far and wide could benefit by having the gem of a school like Pine Harbor Christian Academy for their children to attend. We are so thankful PHCA is here for us!” — Millner Family

“All three of my children spent their grade school years at Pine Harbor and it was fantastic for them..and for our family as a whole. They moved on to public high schools, and in many cases, straight into honors and advanced classes because of their strong preparation from PHCA. More importantly they built character and faith from the amazing staff of teachers. Small classes, demonstrations and projects, speaking opportunities, serving others, and strong adult relationships helped them grow and gave them many chances to push themselves and to shine.”

“As a public school teacher for 7 years, I never imagined my children going to a public school. When we moved to Hastings, I began substitute teaching. Within the first 10 minutes in the classroom, I knew my child HAD to start kindergarten here! PHCA has smaller class sizes to allow for more individual and small group teaching. Beginning each day in prayer and learning God’s word was amazing to witness. I would recommend taking a tour on any Walk In Wednesday and seeing it for yourself!” — Shleppenbach Family

“When my husband and I started the process of choosing a school for my daughter, the minute we walked into Pine Harbor we just knew it felt right. The teachers and staff are amazing! The environment is so welcoming- I am always greeted by name. The education my daughter is receiving is fantastic, and add in the fact that it is a God-filled education is priceless!”
