School Notes

  • Huntsville Christian Academy was established by Reggie and Cathy Whiddon in August 1993 because of their conviction that God never intended for the secular government to control education. God gave only the home and the church the responsibility to educate children. In doing so, Huntsville Christian Academy's main philosophy is to teach each student to view life as taught in the Holy Bible. Each student is taught from a Biblical perspective. This allows each student to be exposed to character building principles that will last a lifetime. These Biblical values and concepts are considered foundational to meaningful interpersonal relationships and productive living.

The classrooms are small. The academic quality is very good. My children have been very well prepared for college and received scholarships. The teachers are concerned about the progress of the students and try every way to help them succeed.
