School Notes:

  • Holden Christian Academy's mission is to challenge children to a lifetime of learning, working in partnership with families, to integrate Biblical truth with academic pursuit. During the elementary and middle school years the minds of children are developing at a remarkable rate. Patterns of thinking, reasoning, and analyzing are being formed that will last a lifetime. Because this is the most opportune time for faith and reason to grow together, we seek to create an environment which nurtures both. In this way children are given the tools to cultivate a world view based upon Biblical truth, enabling them to think and reason from God's perspective. This training provides them with a dependable framework through which to interpret the world, make wise decisions, and pursue future learning.
