Our student-led organizations provide a foundation for real-world collaboration
The students of Harvest Christian Academy represent many communities that include: Algonquin, Barrington, Elgin, Geneva, Hampshire, Huntley, Hoffman Estates, Schaumburg, South Elgin and St. Charles. The school is committed to ensuring that students and families have the opportunity to enrich the student body community via events and activities outside of the classroom experience.
Student Council (StuCo)
Throughout the Upper School experience, students campaign and are elected to represent their class in the Student Council. The purpose of the Student Council is to create community and activities that enhance student life. They plan and lead events which include:
National Honor Society (NHS)
Harvest Christian Academy hosts a chapter of the National Honor Society. NHS is the nation’s premier organization established to recognize outstanding upper school students. More than just an honor roll, NHS serves to honor those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of scholarship, leadership, service, and character.
Four main purposes have guided chapters of NHS from the beginning: to create enthusiasm for scholarship; to stimulate a desire to render service; to promote leadership; and to develop character in the students of secondary schools. These purposes also translate into the criteria used for membership selection in each local chapter.
The Do Something Club is a service organization designed to reach out and serve the local community. Led by HCA parents, the club includes Middle School students who believe they have the power to make a difference in the lives of those in our club, in the school, in the Church, and in our communities. This is about showing God’s love to others by taking action!
National Junior Honor Society (NJHS) serves to honor those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of scholarship, leadership, service, and character.
