Advantages of Private Education in Haywood County, NC

Private schools have many advantages over traditional public and charter schools. Just a few of those advantages include:

Curriculum choice: Private schools like HCA have the advantage of choosing their curriculum and how they will teach. That means our faculty and staff can find the right curriculum suited for families in our area.

Christian emphasis: One of the greatest advantages of private education is the ability to emphasize the importance of a relationship with Christ. At HCA, we are able to teach the gospel in every classroom and disciple our students toward a greater relationship with God.

Small class sizes: Private schools typically have smaller classroom sizes than public schools. Our classes are typically between 10 and 15 students, which is about 50% less than traditional public schools.

Community: Our school is not just a place where students arrive, study, and leave. Our school is small enough to maintain a wonderful sense of community. We are all family here at Haywood Christian Academy.

Regulations: Throughout the school year, Haywood Christian Academy has remained open for in-person classes. With smaller class sizes, and safety measures in place, we have been able to maintain a safe and healthy environment in which to learn.

Athletics: Extracurricular activities and athletics are an important part of a child’s academic experience. At Haywood Christian Academy, we are able to maintain competitive sports teams, while emphasizing the importance of good character on and off the field or court.

That is just a short list of some of the key advantages of choosing private school over other education options. At Haywood Christian Academy, the most important aspect of what we do is pointing our students toward healthy relationships with Jesus. In addition to emphasizing discipleship, your child will receive a robust academic experience at HCA.
