  • Decatur Heritage Christian Academy is a great school. I have gone to this school for almost all my life.It surrounds each child that goes there with extremely loving teachers, lessons in christianity, and challenging classes. DHCA also provides lunch from local resturants. Also, we are building a new campus (moving in somewhere in October 2009) so there is no better time to enroll your child into this blessing of a school.
