Our Core Values
We want every child who graduates from HCA to be passionate about Jesus Christ.
Although it is not necessary that every student who attends HCA come from a Christian family, we want our students to understand how important they are to God. As is consistent with Biblical principles, true knowledge of and relationship with Christ is based upon a free and voluntary decision for Him. In that spirit, the school will present the facts and information that establish the truth and joy of the Christian faith and will model before them what it means to have him as Lord and Savior.
We want every child who graduates from HCA to have a well-developed Biblical worldview, with the ability to critically think, reason soundly and attain wisdom and knowledge. The highest possible achievement for any child is to understand and follow God’s plan and purpose. The Bible, the inerrant Word of God, directs parents to prepare their children for Godly living. We believe that school is an institution that aids parents to fulfill this task.
We want every child who graduates from HCA to know that he/she has a calling to do amazing things for the Kingdom of God. We believe that together the home, school, church, and other aspects of a child’s experience educate the whole child in preparation for adulthood. Since a child cannot be separated into isolated components, the school must address each of these interrelated components: spiritual, intellectual, social, emotional, and physical. Each child has individual strengths and weaknesses. Because of this, we believe a developmental approach to education is essential to maximize an individual’s gifts. Our small class sizes allow us to reach each child’s individual needs and help them uncover and encourage the development of their individual gifts and talents…”because every child is worth it!”
