To Know Christ and Make Him Known

Life at Hilton Head Christian Academy is, at its core, spiritual. Our Christian values and mindset guide everything we do. As articulated in our vision statement, our desire is for students To Know Christ and Make Him Known.  

We believe that the beauty of Christian education is helping each student see life through the lens of the Bible. This begins with a faculty and staff team comprised of Christ-followers who are eager to help students see and understand the purpose God has for them during their time at HHCA-and more importantly, the purpose God has for them beyond HHCA.  

HHCA mentors invest in the lives of students through daily Bible classes weekly chapels, annual retreats, campus and community service opportunities, and much more. Each interaction is designed to develop and strengthen the student's walk with Christ.

Evangelism & Discipleship

Our philosophy of evangelism and discipleship is built upon three fundamental ideas:

Family Partnership

Despite the spiritual nature of our goals, HHCA is not the church. When it comes to the spiritual development of students, parents and the local church provide the primary foundation for growth. We aim to provide support to families in the spiritual lives of their children.

Various aspects of the HHCA experience were discussed by Head of School Doug Langhals in fall 2023 through a series of messages shared here. Below, he talks about our Spiritual Life team and explains how this is truly the heartbeat of our school.

Statement Of Faith

1. We believe the Bible is the written Word of God, inspired by the Holy Spirit and without error in the original manuscripts. The Bible is the revelation of God's truth and is infallible and authoritative in all matters of faith and practice.

2. We believe in the Holy Trinity. There is one God, who exists eternally in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

3. We believe that all are sinners and totally unable to save themselves from God's displeasure, except by His mercy.

4. We believe that salvation is by God alone. We believe salvation is based on His grace alone, not on any human individual merit.

5. We believe that Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God, who through His perfect life and sacrificial death atoned for the sins of all who will trust in Him, alone, for salvation.

6. We believe the Holy Spirit indwells God's people and gives them the strength and wisdom to trust Christ and to follow Him.

7. We believe that Jesus will return, bodily and visibly, to judge all mankind and to receive His people to Himself.

8. We believe that all aspects of our lives are to be lived to the glory of God under the Lordship of Jesus Christ.

Marvelous Light

A biblically-based theme is chosen annually around which messages, chapels, and lessons will be focused throughout the school year. The 2023-2024 school year theme is "Marvelous Light" which comes from 1 Peter 2:9. 

This year's theme reminds us that God shines His light into every corner of our life and our world, showing us our great need for Him as well as His great guiding love for us.
