A truly Christian education is more important than ever. The challenges we face are greater than ever. Only with your help, we can engage our community with the gospel and raise up young men and women who will stand for truth.
Tuition used to cover all of the costs of the school. As the city and our neighborhood has changed, we are serving a much poorer community than in the past. In order to meet the needs of our students and families, we rely on generous donors like you to keep our school going strong. Will you join us in educating these young people for Christ?
We’ve worked hard to keep tuition low, so that we can continue to provide a quality Christian education to a community in need. Your support enables us to continue this essential ministry in the urban heart of Philadelphia.
In the last few years, the state has blocked our requests for textbooks that teach Christian values. This has increased our annual out-of-pocket cost for textbooks by more than $20,000. Your generous support will help provide our students with textbooks that promote biblical values.
We long to serve a wider range of Christian families, including all of their children in our loving, Christ-seeking community, instead of pushing kids into Philadelphia public schools where very little is expected of them, and very often, no success is the result. The HCA Christian Special Education Fund will be used to expand our services to special needs students and families.
HCA is located in the historic building of Holmesburg Baptist Church. While we don’t have the rent or mortgage expenses of other schools, our old buildings come with lots of needs for TLC. Your support of the Building & Capital Fund will ensure safe and functional spaces for our children for years to come.
At HCA, we view sports as an opportunity to minister to others through teamwork and Godly character on the athletic field. Your support helps us provide uniforms, equipment, referees, transportation to games, and refreshments for our student athletes — and encourages our students to strive for excellence!
