Hope Christian Academy serves infants - 4 year olds in the early education department and Kindergarten through 12th grade in the academic school.
We use the A Beka, A.C.E., and Links to Literacy curriculums.
We have been in service to our community since 2001.
Hope Christian Academy is a distinctly Christian school that incorporates the truths found in the Bible into every aspect of our educational process.
We endeavor to provide academic excellence from a Christian view that will equip each child to be successful in all areas of life.
We hold to the truth that the Bible is the inspired, infallible, inerrant, eternal Word of God.
Every part of our curriculum is interpreted and applied from a Christ centered, Bible based perspective.
We couple this with teachers whose sincere desire is to impact lives for eternity.
Hope Christian Academy uses the A Beka curriculum in our elementary and middle divisions to build a solid foundation in reading, writing, and arithmetic.
Students begin writing cursive in first grade and are reading by the time they leave our kindergarten class.
We teach every subject every day of the week.
All subjects are emphasized at HCA, not just the ones that will be on state tests.
We are Florida VPK and Episcopal Children's Service Providers and accept McKay and Step Up for Students Scholarships.
