This choice can make a difference in your child’s life and education path. If you’re interested in enrolling your child in a private school and are a Haywood County resident, Haywood Christian Academy is an excellent choice.
At HCA, we offer smaller class sizes and opportunities to get involved and contribute to an enhanced sense of community and school pride in a Christ-centered and nurturing environment. Our students not only excel socially, academically, and athletically, but they develop a closer relationship with God and create a supportive community with peers.
Unlike traditional public schools, HCA challenges students to meet a higher academic standard through rigorous learning programs. In addition, students should perform at or above grade level and reflect character and behavior consistent with Christian standards. One of our many goals is to foster an atmosphere that encourages students to be motivated, driven, and successful.
Private schools are typically smaller than public schools, leading to smaller average class sizes. In a small classroom setting at HCA, students and teachers can form closer relationships. This helps the teachers know each student better, enabling them to tailor their teaching styles accordingly.
Our smaller class sizes provide a stimulating and encouraging learning environment for all students, in addition to rigorous academic courses and classroom Bible study.
At a private school, there are typically more co-curricular options that allow students to participate in sports. HCA believes that our athletic program should instill positive, Christ-like character that is expressed openly through competition.
Our athletic program allows students to develop new interests, learn valuable skills, and delve into a community or team that will become a vital part of their school experience.
Haywood Christian Academy has been offering rigorous, Christ-centered, private school education in Haywood County, North Carolina, since 2007.
