Academic Excellence

Highland Christian Academy was launched in 1984 with a philosophy that our students would receive a superior education. It starts with a superior curriculum - A Beka has been the core curriculum from day one. It has a "back to basics" philosophy that emphasizes disciplined study of each subject area and is one of the most highly respected curriculums available. Supplemental materials are selected to enrich the program and have consistently assisted HCA in keeping our students academically challenged and have provided standardized testing results well above the norm. Yearly standardized testing compares our students' academic achievements with students across the country. Our students consistently score will above the 50th percentile and far above grade level (typically 6 to 18 months beyond grade level.)

HCA classroom student to teacher ratios are kept low, usually about half of public school norms. Highland Christian Academy targets a 20 to 1 student/teacher ratio.

SPECIALs
In addition to the core concepts taught at each grade level, our students are exposed to a variety of other activities. Art, Spanish, Computer and vocal music instruction is provided for students in Kindergarten through 8th grade weekly. Physical education is provided for students in Kindergarten through 8th grade twice each week . 

(Students in 4th - 8th grade students may choose to participate in Band)

CREATIVE ARTS

All students also attend two Elective Creative Arts classes each week. Electives may include art, crafts, music, acting, cheer, woodworking, culinary, karate, etc.

In addition to the Creative Arts Program all students participate in an all school musical.
