What Alumni Say

  • “HCA helped prepare and shape me, for college and life after, through the examples that were set and experiences I had. The teachers and coaches walked along side me through personal trials. They also pushed me to take the next steps academically as well as spiritually. Building a foundation in Christ is vitally important in youth today, so that when they get out into the world, they can be lights in a dark world.”
