About Us

Who We Are

Hawthorne Christian Academy partners with Christian families to provide a Christ-centered education for students in preschool through grade twelve. At HCA, we build foundations for life, equipping students spiritually and academically to be ambassadors for Christ with a mission and a purpose.


HCA’s Preschool program provides a loving, caring environment for three and four-year-old children to grow and develop as they interact with other children and learn to be part of a community.

Lower School

HCA’s nurturing Lower School program lays a strong academic and spiritual foundation for our students in kindergarten through grade five.

Middle School

HCA’s supportive middle school program provides many opportunities for students to recognize and cultivate their God-given giftings.

High School

HCA’s rigorous high school program lays a foundation of fundamental knowledge, strong study habits, and critical thinking skills, while interweaving a Biblical worldview.

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.
