Highlands Christian Academy believes that the Bible, both Old and New Testament, was given by inspiration of God, and is our only rule in matters of faith and practice.
We believe in creation, not evolution; that man was created by the direct act of God and in the image of God.
We believe that Adam and Eve, in yielding to the temptation of Satan, became fallan creatures.

My children currently attend Highlands Christian Academy, and I am so pleased with the quality of education. My child had incredible preparation as a senior in his science, psychology, and English classes. Top notch education.

The first contact I had with this school was on the parents reunion where the coordinator told her testimony of how she always loved kids. Through that I was more secure to put my son in VPK in this school. Since then, he has learned a lot, as math, reading, art, the professors are very kind and experienced, but the most important thing: he has learning a lot about God. Of course, the responsibility is ours, at home, to teach our kids "the way they should go", but is really impressive how they memorize verses and songs. Simply, one day my son comes home singing about the fruits of the Spirit, and the other day saying "Oh, Lord you have searched my heart and you know everything about me", Psalm 139. It is a wonderful school, children are treated on a unique way, even when my son didn't go because he was sick, I received a phone call of the coordinator, Mrs. Peters, asking about him and saying that they have prayed for him to get better. Fantastic school, staff, professors, God is in the details on everything about it. I'm so happy and excited for next year! (my son is going to Kindergarten)... Unfortunately, the only thing is that they don't have space for little kids yet, under 3... :(I really recommend this school, you parent, won't regret it.

All three of my children attend Highlands. It has a family atmosphere and very caring teachers that go above and beyond the "call of duty". A lot of improvements have happened over the past two years in all area's, from the aftercare to the college preparation of the students in high school. The campus is nicely kept and they have cameras and a security guard who tours the campus all day and during night time activities. My children look forward to going to school every day.

My son is into his 4th year at Highlands where he is receiving an excellent quality of education for the 'whole man' body, mind and spirit. He is guided and challenged everyday by highly qualified teachers who are genuinely dedicated and caring. We are thrilled with the many opportunities he has to participate in the Band and in sports.We highly recommend Highlands to anyone looking for a great level of christian education on a state of the art, warm, friendly campus.

We have loved having our boys at HCA for K4 so far. The tremendous care that the teachers and aides have provided to meet the needs of our children is outstanding. If you are looking for a program with high academic focus that will teach your children to love others and love Jesus then HCA is the right school for your family too!

We are very excited to see the many changes happening at Highlands, there are many advances happening in technology and athletics....they are truly focused on making this school a better learning environment for the students, I can't wait to see what's in stored for the 2012/2013 school year. I would recommend anyone to send their children there for a quality Christian education.
