Huntingdon Valley Christian Academy

  • Huntingdon Valley Christian Academy was established in 1969 under the name Greater Philadelphia Junior Academy, as a regional school to provide Christ-centered education for the children of Greater Philadelphia Seventh-day Adventist Churches.
  • Huntingdon Valley Christian Academy is part of the Seventh-day Adventist educational system.
  • As such, HVCA operates on the belief that education involves more than the pursuit of a certain course of study.
  • It means more than the preparation for the present life.
  • Education has to do with the whole being and with the whole period of existence possible to man.
  • Through Christ and His Spirit, God determined to restore humanity from its lost state.
  • Through the Bible, He has revealed His will to the world, a revelation that supersedes human reason.
  • Huntingdon Valley Christian Academy's primary purpose is to bring students to an understanding and acceptance of God's plan of salvation and restoration through Jesus Christ.
