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.

My son is into his 4th year at Highlands where he is receiving an excellent quality of education for the 'whole man' body, mind and spirit. He is guided and challenged everyday by highly qualified teachers who are genuinely dedicated and caring. We are thrilled with the many opportunities he has to participate in the Band and in sports.We highly recommend Highlands to anyone looking for a great level of christian education on a state of the art, warm, friendly campus.

We have loved having our boys at HCA for K4 so far. The tremendous care that the teachers and aides have provided to meet the needs of our children is outstanding. If you are looking for a program with high academic focus that will teach your children to love others and love Jesus then HCA is the right school for your family too!
