New Family Information | 2022-2023

 
 
welcome
 
Whether you are new to HHCA or bringing more of your children to our community, we hope your transition is both easy and exciting for each of you. We are so glad you are a part of all that God is doing in our midst!
 
This page was designed with a host of information and resources just for you. It is updated frequently so be sure to check back often!
 
You can always reach out to Laurie White on our Admissions Team with any questions.
 
Welcome to the HHCA family!
 
_____________________________
 
 
 
Eagle Ambassadors (EA) are a select group of current students who enjoy helping new students transition smoothly into life at our school prior to their arrival on campus and as they become part of the HHCA community.
 
New families can expect to hear from their student's assigned EA during the summer in hopes they can connect prior to coming to school in August. 
 
EAs in Middle and Upper School will attend Orientation on August 8th and help their assigned new student become familiar with where to go and what to do on their first day of school.

Each grade has an assigned PTF Grade Rep who serves as a communicator and guide throughout the year. You can learn more about HHCA's PTF HERE. In addition to your student's EA (as outlined above) you should hear from the PTF Grade Rep assigned to your student's grade soon!

Our Athletics Booster club also offers a great way to plug in to Eagle Nation. In addition to annual memberships, volunteers support HHCA athletics in various capacities throughout the year.
