School Notes:

Founded in 1981 as a ministry of the Hawthorne Gospel Church, our school is evangelical and interdenominational, with selective admissions. At Hawthorne Christian Academy, we are in the business of building foundations for life. We do not look only to the present status of our students, but view them as ambassadors for Christ, children with a mission and a destiny. We seek to educate students to their potential and to instill in them the excitement of lifelong learning.
