Highlands Christian Academy believe that the Bible, both Old and New Testament, was given by inspiration of God, and is our only rule in matters of faith and practice.
We believe in creation, not evolution; that man was created by the direct act of God and in the image of God.
We believe that Adam and Eve, in yielding to the temptation of Satan, became fallan creatures.

We are very excited to see the many changes happening at Highlands, there are many advances happening in technology and athletics....they are truly focused on making this school a better learning environment for the students, I can't wait to see what's in stored for the 2012/2013 school year. I would recommend anyone to send their children there for a quality Christian education.

My children have attended Highlands for 4 years now. We are thrilled with the quality of the education, as well as the family feel of the school. Their campus is impressive with so much to offer! We are looking forward to our children continuing all the way though graduation! I would highly recommend this school to anyone looking for a high quality education for their child with a focus centered on Jesus Christ.
