    • Experience HHCA
From individually tailored and rigorous curricular offerings, to extensive art, athletic, and service opportunities, there is a lot to love about an HHCA education. While these distinctives are invaluable and praiseworthy in their own right, it is our foundation in Jesus Christ that really sets our school family apart. As we seek to follow Christ and grow leaders, the faculty and staff of HHCA are committed to equipping our students with the knowledge, skills, and perseverance needed to become problem solvers and life-changers. We challenge our student to view work as worship, seeking excellence in everything they do for the glory of God.

Our uniquely gifted and exceptionally trained teachers and administrators thrive on pouring their lives into the lives of our students. This highly relational approach seeks to foster the personal talents and passions of each child, illuminating the beautiful tapestry that is the body of Christ.

Visitors often note, “We felt a difference as soon as we walked in the door.” We invite you to experience the HHCA difference for yourself!
