The blessings are more than most know with the investment being less than most assume.

tuition investment

We recognize the investment parents make by choosing HCA. We thus create an “eternal return on investment” by providing strong academic training with a Christian worldview while nurturing students spiritual formation and transformation. At HCA, you are investing in your family with a partner that affirms your beliefs and assists your students to own their faith. HCA delivers this with tuition and fees which are substantially lower than other private schools, as our mission is to make Christian Education available to those willing to invest in their family.
