Wholistic We don't just teach academics. Along with their bookwork, students at HCA are taught character and community.
We seek to engage the heart, mind, and body so that students may reach their full potential in Christ.
Individualized One of the best things about our program is that it is customizable for each student. Students are given the opportunity to work at their own pace and at a level fitting to their strengths and weaknesses.
Secure We know that security is such a huge issue in today's world.
Therefore we seek to provide a safe environment in which students can learn and connect with other students.
We want students and families to feel safe physically, emotionally, and spiritually.

My oldest boy has a severe speech delay and public school was going to just "push him through" to the next grade when he hadn`t learned any of the basics in kindergarten. I found Hope Christian Academy when I was searching for a private school that would put effort into my child and see his potential as I do. HCA did just that, and my child made SO much progress in his first year at HCA. It`s a small school which is so perfect for shy children, they can build meaningful relationships rather than being "lost in the crowd". The staff is top-notch, friendly, super easy to work with and most of all truly cares about their students. I couldn`t recommend this school more!!

Hope is a wonderful school with a caring and attentive staff. My son loves his school. The atmosphere is fun but not overwhelming and the kids get one on one in areas they need extra help with. I recommend Hope Christian Academy.

I visited this school with a friend who was interested in it for her son. I was so impressed with the layout, discipline, curriculum, and structure they used, it wasn't difficult to figure out this was what I was looking for for my daughter. HCA has been good to my family since she started attending this school in 2008 at the 6th level. They use diagnostic testing to see where the student should be placed. They use the A.C.E. program (Accelerated Christian Education). Our daughter completed this program through the 12th level (Senior in HS) which prepared her for college. I feel this program gave her an edge over many of her peers from public school. She excelled in college, graduating with a double-major in education. I attribute her success to the A.C.E. program and HCA staff. I volunteered the entire time my daughter was a student and still volunteer here to this day. I believe in Christian education, the A.C.E. program and whole-heartedly support the leadership and staff of the school. Each child has the opportunity to excel (if they apply themselves). HCA is A+++ in my book!!
