It is an extension of the Christian home and an outreach ministry of Grace Free Lutheran Church, formerly Medicine Lake Lutheran Church, to the Christian community (students from 90 different area churches attend this school).
HCA provides a way to instill and maintain continuity of Biblical principles in young peoples' lives.
