how to make sure high school prepares studentsWhen it comes to education, Haywood, North Carolina, has some of the most prestigious private schools in the state. Graduating students marks the beginning of a new journey for students. However, the transition from a comfortable high school setting to an unknown college environment can be unsettling.

Haywood Christian Academy provides a robust college prep curriculum to prepare students for success both in college and life after graduation. 

We understand that when it comes to choosing a school, parents want the best educational opportunities for their children. If you're deciding whether to send your child to a traditional school or private school, we've highlighted some of the benefits of Haywood Christian Academy's college prep program.

Benefits of the HCA College Prep Program

1. Specialized Courses

Haywood Christian Academy is a private institution that provides an excellent educational experience on the foundation of Christian teachings. The high school program is intended to help students develop mature skills of reasoning, expressions, research, and problem-solving that will prepare them to succeed in a college environment. 

Students can dual enroll in high school and college specialized courses during their Junior and Senior years to simultaneously earn high school and college credits. Not only will students be challenged in these courses, but they will get a head start in their college or career path. 

2. Rigorous Learning

College is very different from high school, meaning classes are challenging, and college students have greater freedom and have more responsibilities. College prep provides high school students with the necessary toolset to succeed in college. 

We help students discover who they are in Christ and celebrate the unique differences in our students, as well as prepare our students for academic excellence through rigorous learning and assessments. 

3. Preparation for Standardized Tests

Standardized testing is not the only way to assess a student’s achievements. However, universities use a student’s SAT scores when evaluating admittance. It's in a student’s best interest to prepare as thoroughly as possible for standardized testing such as the PSAT, SAT, and ACT. 

At HCA, we recognize the significance of these exams and offer college entrance exam preparation to our students who desire to pursue a college education or specialized training post-graduation.

4. Religious Education

Many college prep programs are private entities in which students can receive a religious education. HCA provides a Christ-centered education that integrates biblical truth and prepares students for college and their future. 

Our mission is to develop students into Christian leaders by providing an excellent educational experience based on Biblical truth. We strive to teach and guide our students to deepen their relationship with God and prepare them for the next step in their journey.
