Tuition & Financial Aid

Over the years, we have appreciated the FACTS scholarship funding efforts to work in conjunction with our family to provide the financial resources to send our daughter to HCA. ~ Mrs. Deborah Forte, HCA parent

While private Christian Education may not have been on your radar, all parents must understand how important worldview development is in the education of their children.

“As we make choices about how we are going to educate our children, we must understand that our choices have consequences but they often don’t show up until we are deeply in a wrong way of thinking and living.”  Kingdom Education, (Schultz 40). 

Shifting your mindset to see the long-term investment in the lives of your children (Kindergarten-Grade 12 is 11, 440+ hours of influence), is a sacrifice well worth it! Partnering with a school that believes in the same God-centered worldview has as its goal graduating Christ-followers who are equipped to impact a lost world with the talents and abilities that the Lord has given to them.

It is in this context that we view our tuition rates presented to you here:
