rogersRogers Family

Haywood Christian Academy has been such a blessing to our family. After years of homeschooling, we searched and prayed on the right school for our children. HCA came into our lives at just the right time. Not only are my children excelling socially, academically, and athletically, but I have seen them each grow closer to the Lord.

I feel I can call on the teachers at any time, and I know they are there for my family. We have already seen the blessings of investing in our children's education through Haywood Christian Academy, and I am so thankful for the strong foundation they are receiving there.

Newkirk Family 

newkirkHaywood Christian Academy has become our home! From our first visit we were welcomed by loving and caring Christian educators. The low teacher-to-student ratio coupled with the Christian principles they espouse was the initial draw for our family. This allows for more individual instruction for our daughter. In addition, these children in how to be in the world but not be of the world. Everything is Christ-centered & handled with Biblical principles & abounding grace.

We make the 40-minute drive one-way daily, because we believe in and support the faculty & staff who pour their hearts, knowledge and love into these children. We are thankful for this school.
