Testimonies

"I came to Hernando Christian Academy in the 10th grade planning to attend for one year. The American education system appealed to me and I excelled academically under the guidance of my host family and teachers. After the first year, I decided to remain at HCA to finish high school. I enjoyed learning to play American football, soccer, and tennis. I was inducted into the National Honor Society and was Vice President of the student government. I was able to obtain my Associates of Arts, a two year college degree, while I finished my high school courses. HCA academics prepared me well and I graduated at the top of my college class. I returned to my home country of Germany and earned a scholarship to college with a 1.1 rating (1-10 score with 1.0 being the top score)! I have been accepted at a top business college where I will be taught in English while in Germany majoring in International Business."

"My dream to attend high school in the United States became a reality when I spent an unforgettable twelfth grade year at Hernando Christian Academy. I attended classes, had my own locker, played on a sports team, and even attended prom in this beautiful dress. It was hard work, but the teachers at Hernando Christian Academy helped and encouraged me. I returned to Italy to complete my 13th year and scored a perfect 100 out of 100 on my year end exams; the only perfect score in my city! My year at HCA has helped me gain proficiency in English and I plan to attend college at Oxford University."

- Clara Bellotto, Italy




"Hernando Christian Academy became my home during my eleventh grade year. Coming to America was my parent’s decision to help me focus more on my education. The host family I was with helped me to set goals and have success and they have continued to be my greatest supporters, even after I returned to Germany. I studied hard while at HCA, but my hard work was balanced with fun activities. I played on the school soccer and tennis teams and made lifelong friends who have come to visit me in Germany. My year at HCA changed my life, and I am now studying to be a surgeon at the University of Munich."

- Adrian Kussmaul, Germany




"I researched my options for attending school in the United States and carefully chose Hernando Christian Academy for its high academic standards. My classes were tailored to my ability and were modified in areas where I needed it my first year, but the teachers encouraged me, until I was taking honors classes with no modifications. My hard work earned top marks, including a perfect score on the college SAT in math. I am now earning a business degree at a top college in Amsterdam."

- Celine Cui, China




"I began my education in the US attending a boarding school in a northern US state. Unfortunately, the boarding school program where I was housed, along with other Chinese students, did not help me develop the needed skills in English. For my second year in high school, I transferred to Hernando Christian Academy where they had a home stay program. Living with a caring English speaking family was a successful experience for me. My TOEFL score rose to over 100 in a few short months. I enjoyed art classes and the many field trips we took to help develop my vocabulary. I am now attending the University of California and excelling in my studies."

- June Yu, China




"Attending school at Hernando Christian Academy has been the best experience for me. My English was not as good as many of my classmates, but the teachers modified my courses to help me be successful. By the end of the first school year I was motivated by my success and was earning A’s in my courses. I eat, live, and breathe soccer. I love playing on the school team. My teammates cheered for me when I made my first goal during the first game I played on the school team. I also enjoy the international flavor of interacting with other students from other countries who all attend Hernando Christian Academy. The school tries to plan one activity each month for us to expand our vocabulary and see many of the local tourist attractions in the state of Florida. We have participated in trips to theme parks such as Busch Gardens, Disney World, and the Kennedy Space Center."

- Omar Nunarnan, Thailand




"Hernando Christian Academy helped me reach my ultimate goal of attending a top rated university. I needed guidance help in the process of getting into a top university, since my family does not live in the United States. The international student director at HCA kept me on track for applying to colleges, arranging for transportation to the TOEFL and other needed tests. She even arranged college tours to help me understand what was available and the questions to ask in the university selection process. When I was accepted at Penn State, the school arranged a trip to see the university and helped me with the paperwork and contracts for my off campus apartment. I was hosted with another international student in a home stay program at HCA, and he has become a great encouragement in my life and will be joining me at Penn State. The education I received was well rounded with many new experiences and a quality education. I learned to give back by volunteering in the community and even helped younger students on campus with their academics. I have many great memories and made many new friends who will remain with me in the years to come. I am glad I chose Hernando Christian Academy for my high school education and would recommend it to anyone. "
