We invite you to take advantage of this unique opportunity to partner with Halifax Christian Academy so your high school student(s) receive the blessing of a great education in alignment with your Christian values, in smaller classes, with more individual attention WHILE growing in their faith!
HCA High School offers students a high-quality university-preparatory curriculum. Our students routinely perform at 2 to 3 grades higher than their numerical grade on standardized tests, with the vast majority being offered multiple post-secondary scholarships. Our smaller classes allow our team of experienced instructors to bless your student with much more of their time. Our teachers invest more teaching time into your student, and less time managing a huge classroom. Our in-class experience, is supplemented through a series of online courses through HCA’s Atlantic Education Online, which includes Advanced Placement (AP) courses (of similar caliber to IB classes) which earn university credit while in High School.
Our Learning Environment
HCA High School enjoys its own floor in our main Halifax campus. The learning spaces are not what most of our parents experienced! With modern technology, communal gathering space, individual and small group study spaces, and an open and bright layout, our students are a community learning in an inviting space for study worship, group gatherings, and simple hangout. Our High School has a dedicated, and fully equipped science lab, which serves as our hub for our STEM training. In HCA High School we build a relationship with your student in order to identify and nurture their gifts, and support in areas which need assistance. Our students are learning in an environment where swearing is nearly non-existent, bullying a rare occurrence, and in uniforms which relieves the social pressure and large expense of “having to have” the trendiest apparel at all times.
DISCIPLESHIP and LEADERSHIP
At HCA, we are called to help students learn about the foundations of the Christian faith. We also encourage them to ask the (sometimes tough) questions they may have in a safe and supportive setting. Our goal is for our high school to equip students to TAKE OWNERSHIP of their own faith and know why they believe what they believe. At HCA, discipleship is not a program, it is a culture, and we believe in our students not only playing a role in shaping that culture, but in leading others through their example and service. We strive to see students becoming disciples together, and positively impacting others. For a Christian high schooler, the simple ability to pray with a peer during school hours, may be the biggest blessing of all.
