School Notes

  • We seek to assist parents in their obedience of the biblical mandate to provide Christian education for their children. As all knowledge comes from God, the truth of Scripture is integrated into every aspect of education at HRCA.  We train children to think biblically about every area of life.  We are working to graduate students who have the skills to learn anything, the ability to communicate effectively, and the desire to serve a God they know intimately and love.

We could not be happier we chose HRCA. My daughter started in 4th grade and is going into the 9th grade. Classical Christian education really is only for parents who believe our children are our greatest asset in this life and also believe it is a parent's responsibility to grow our kids in the fear and admonition of the Lord. If the parables of the talents teaches us one thing, is that there is a sin called average. We are called to be exceptional, and it all starts with education where Christ is center. You will find no compromise with the call to excellence at HRCA and if you believe as we do, then there can be no other choice for your beloved Child.

Haw River Christian Academy is a rare treasure. The growing school combines classical academic excellence and gifted teachers with an unmatched Biblical worldview that results in a rich learning environment. The school also touts three sports teams, a drama production, sports clubs, summer camps, a house system, and other extracurriculars.

We began at HRCA when our now 7th grader was in Kindergarten. We currently have three children attending and could not be happier. Our children receive an exceptional education in a loving, supportive Christ-centered environment.

Since day one HRCA has been, and continues to be, a blessing to our family. Our kids have flourished with the quality of education they are receiving through the classical christian model as well as the exceptional teachers at HRCA. The teachers at HRCA have an intimate connection with each child and truly understand their God given gifts. I strongly recommend HRCA to any family looking to invest in a partnership with a school to mold their child to be the very best version of what God created them to be.
