Western North Carolina is an excellent spot to raise a family. Waynesville is just a short drive from the Blue Ridge Parkway, thousands of miles of hiking and mountain biking trails, waterfalls, and landscapes to explore. It's no surprise that Haywood County is rapidly growing, with a thriving employment market and a variety of restaurants and shopping areas.
Whether you are new to the area or have been in Haywood County for a while, you must decide whether to enroll your children in public or private schools. At Haywood Christian Academy, we think that selecting private Christian education in Waynesville has numerous benefits.
The Benefits of Christian Private Education for Young Students
Our mission at Haywood Christian Academy is to teach students to become Christian leaders by offering a great educational experience based on Biblical truth. Our Christian education has numerous advantages, including:
- Share Moral Values: If your goal is to offer your child the same moral foundation as the Bible outlines, Christian education is the best option. We believe moral and spiritual formation are important components of a child’s education.
- Teach Christian Principles: A child’s teacher is an important role model. Teachers openly demonstrate and model Christian principles in the Christian school classroom.
- Curriculum Aligned with Christian Values: While strong academics are at the forefront, Christian schools can align their curriculum with Christian values. Concepts in the classroom can be viewed from a variety of perspectives, including those of the Christian faith.
- Small Class Sizes: Christian schools can almost always offer more individual attention than public schools. Smaller class sizes allow teachers to focus on individual students.
- School Safety: Christian schools provide a healthy emotional and spiritual atmosphere in addition to physical well-being. Bullying is not tolerated, and children are raised in a safe, caring environment. Haywood Christian Academy provides a safe environment for students to express themselves, try new things, and be themselves.
- Athletics: While academics are still the primary focus of most private schools, many also emphasize a well-rounded education and encourage participation in extracurricular activities such as athletics, music, arts, or clubs. Our students at HCA have access to high-quality athletic programs that focus on skill, teamwork, and Christ-like sportsmanship.
