At Hillsborough Christian Academy, long-term student success is found in an environment where educational excellence is infused with a solid biblical worldview. Starting in our lower grades, we place a large focus on the foundations: a strong phonics-based program and the fundamentals of math, science, history, geography, and health. As students continue to mature, our upper grade classes continue to offer the rigorous differentiation that parents should expect out of our small class sizes. In addition to the fundamentals, we also dive into additional subjects such as student skills and character education.
Some of our curriculum partners include Abeka, BJU Press, EasyGrammar, Learning Without Tears, Pearson Realize, and many more! We are also resourced with a large library of age appropriate texts that our upper grades English teachers utilize in their units of study.
Along with our phenomenal academic curriculum, we also utilize a large number of tools like Starfall, Google Apps for Education, Apple School, Code.org, and others through our focus on 21st century learners. For our lower grades, students are able to utilize iPads in addition to their standard curriculum. By the time our students reach middle school, they are armed with a Chromebook device to carry their learning tools with them wherever they go!
Outside of our core curriculum, we also offer all students elective classes that engage their innate gifts from God. Art, Chapel, Character Education, Computer Science, Library, Music, Physical Education, and Spanish are all currently offered to HCA students on a weekly basis.
