Upper School

We love our Harvest families and the teachers are outstanding! Mostly we love that Harvest is a Christ centered school. My daughter has grown academically but more important she has grown spiritually. ~Mrs. Susan Tilkian

Upper School at HCA Grades 9-12

Harvest Christian Academy is committed to a program that emphasizes academic and spiritual development and preparedness.  Highly-qualified, Christian teachers focus on developing students in mind, body, and spirit.  Believing it glorifies God to develop our minds and abilities, HCA understands students’ spiritual development and discipleship will have an eternal impact.  We strive to provide the best education possible in preparation for future achievement and to contribute to the establishment of Christian values for a happy and creative life, while working in the Lord’s kingdom. Our instruction concerning God’s will for each person teaches that all truth is God’s truth. Knowledge to choose between good and evil, based upon God’s Word, is a vital component promoting Christian character.

Those serving the school in any capacity, whether in administration, on the faculty, on the staff, or as a volunteer, subscribe to the school’s philosophy of providing a high-quality, Christian education in a Christian atmosphere. The establishment and subsequent operation of Harvest Christian Academy will be successful when done in accordance with His will and for His honor and glory.
