Grades: PK - 10 | 103 students
Huntingdon Valley Christian Academy was established in 1969 under the name Greater Philadelphia Junior Academy, as a regional school to provide Christ-centered education for the children of Greater Philadelphia Seventh-day Adventist Churches.
Huntingdon Valley Christian Academy is part of the Seventh-day Adventist educational system.
As such, HVCA operates on the belief that education involves more than the pursuit of a certain course of study.
It means more than the preparation for the present life.
Education has to do with the whole being and with the whole period of existence possible to man.
Through Christ and His Spirit, God determined to restore humanity from its lost state.
Through the Bible, He has revealed His will to the world, a revelation that supersedes human reason.
Huntingdon Valley Christian Academy's primary purpose is to bring students to an understanding and acceptance of God's plan of salvation and restoration through Jesus Christ.
