HCA COVID-19 Update & Our Online Response

This unforeseen and unprecedented situation has changed daily life drastically in the past few weeks, but what has not changed is HCA’s commitment to provide our students with a strong, Christ-centered education and exceptional opportunities for academic and spiritual growth through community-building interactions.

Our highly qualified Preschool-12th Grade teachers (including our elective and enrichment faculty) are implementing engaging and rigorous remote learning lessons and purposeful assignments for all of our students. Lessons are designed to review essential knowledge and skills while extending student outcomes of content knowledge and skill development in alignment with our curriculum at each grade level. Please review our Remote Learning Outline below and visit the HCA Parent Portal for the latest updates, frequently asked questions, and helpful resources. Also, be sure to follow us on Facebook where we will continue to encourage one another through online chapels and other content.

We look forward to the time when we can gather together again at HCA and enjoy fellowship with each member of our HCA family! Until then, we remain committed to providing for our students’ academic and spiritual growth.

“Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.” Lamentations 3:22-23
