Thank You for Choosing HCA!

Thank you for your inquiry at Halifax Christian Academy! It is a privilege that you are considering HCA as your academic & discipleship partner with your family. We take this very seriously and pride ourselves in providing outstanding Christ-centered academics!

HCA has 2 campuses serving HRM. Each is unique but offer the same Christ-centered education that you expect to receive. We have a cute little internal saying “offering diapers to diplomas” Our Timberlea Campus offers child care starting at 18 months through to grade 4 while our Armdale Campus offers grades PP-grade 12.

I would love to take the opportunity to share with you what God is doing in and through His school. I believe the best way to get to know us to come in and have a personal tour of the campus of our choice.

Our staff team is here to pray along with you as you move forward in the admissions process. We pray inquiring families feel the love of Christ and our desire to build His kingdom one student at a time. We pray that the Lord will guide your path and may His will be done.

Below, you’ll find links to the application and tuition investment plan for 2021/22.

Thank you once again for considering to partner with Halifax Christian Academy. I am looking forward to getting to know you and your family better as we move forward.

HCA uses a number of curriculums from both Christian and secular resources to create a well-rounded and strong academic program from PP to Grade 12!


HCA has adopted a uniform for several reasons such as:

  • to maintain high standards in the appearance of our student body
  • to avoid competition in dress among the students
  • and to minimize expense to parents for school clothes in this day of “designer” styles and fast fashion

The prescribed uniform is outlined in our uniform guidelines and can be ordered through the online HCA Uniform Shop. We also have a used uniform buy/sell/give group so that outgrown, good condition, uniforms may be passed on to other students within the community.

Students are required to attend school dressed in regulation uniform. Uniforms must be clean, neat, and tidy.
