Halifax Christian Academy exists to transform lives through dynamic Christ-centered education and discipleship. With our students, we have over 1000 hours of influence every year, influence which we don’t take for granted. It is a privilege to help our students develop a love of learning and discover for themselves what we pray is their own unshakable faith in Jesus as saviour and to stand on the truth and wisdom of the Holy Bible as a guide for their lives. Our community is open to those who have not yet discovered Jesus, and those that are seeking what makes Christianity unique and distinctive to other worldviews. At HCA we pride ourselves on delivering a high quality education, and our student body routinely ranks in the top quartile across the country in standardized testing. With class sizes which are smaller than the public system, our team of highly qualified, highly educated and highly experienced teachers are able to pour a huge amount more of their time, talent, and energy into teaching and nurturing their students. Our teachers know our students and they have the time to help them develop using their unique God-given set of talents to address that which is more challenging. Our middle school learns in a powerful, multi-faceted 21st century learning environment, where collaboration, project based learning, and technology are embraced. Our high school graduates receive a fully accredited diploma and are highly recruited by post secondary institutions, receiving hundreds of thousands of scholarships annually.

In all that we do and in all that we teach, we put Jesus in the centre. We call this “discipleship infused education”. Our discipleship of students, in accordance with the commands within Matthew chapter 28 is something we take very seriously. A family can find academic training in many settings within HRM, but HCA stands alone as a DISCIPLESHIP partner to the family. We invest in the spiritual formation and transformation of our students, staff, and parents as it is our MIDDLE NAME which makes us distinct. An education which is infused with discipleship is a much MORE powerful combination from the best that secular academic institutions can offer. For a Christian family, the fact that the public school (and many private schools) are actively indoctrinating your students to an atheistic worldview is NOT ACCEPTABLE, and HCA stands alone as the place where your family’s worldview is embraced and not attacked.
HCA is extremely accessible and affordable, with tuition approximately 40% less than the average HRM private school. We have faith that by having a reasonable tuition level, and relying on our families and friends to help us achieve our Vision and Mission, we have the whole body of Christ coming together to create a culture of generosity where everyone that can – GIVES – through the donation of time, talent, and financial resources. With your support we can continue to thrive.
Thank you for your continued prayers for HCA as we boldly embrace the path that God has called us to walk.
We look forward to meeting you soon,
