About Us

Who We Are

Hawthorne Christian Academy was founded in 1981 as a ministry of Hawthorne Gospel Church.


HCA’s preschool program provides three and four-year-old children to grow and develop in so many positive ways as they interact with other children socially, and learn to be part of a community.

HCA's History

Hawthorne Christian Academy was founded in 1981 as a ministry of Hawthorne Gospel Church. It was a vision laid upon the hearts of the leaders of HGC to create a place where children could receive a solid spiritual and academic education. In the years since, the vision has remained the same: to weave a Biblical worldview through every aspect of the educational experience.

At HCA, we build foundations for life, instilling lasting values in our students. We attend to the present well-being of our students, with their futures in mind, as ambassadors for Christ with a mission and a destiny.
