Mission and Vision

“… that they may know the mystery of Christ, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.” Colossians 2:2-3

Mission Statement

HSCA Christian Academy will provide a curriculum that emphasizes mastery, connection between disciplines, knowledge with purpose, wisdom and virtue. We will prepare our students to approach life and vocation with exceptional skill, faith, humility and honor, having as its source Jesus Christ – the Wisdom, Word, and Son of God. We will educate the whole human person: mind, heart and body. We will educate students based upon Classical academics combined with Orthodox Christian values. We will offer the Classical curriculum of the seven liberal arts and the four sciences.

Vision Statement

We desire that all students embrace a lifelong love of Wisdom and learning. We believe that God made each child a rational being with the desire and ability to learn and grow in Truth. All Truth, Goodness and Beauty in creation are a witness to God’s love for us. We desire that each child come of age with a strong mind and heart, learning virtue and character to live purely, work eagerly, contemplate clearly, listen attentively, discern wisely, reason rightly and articulate accurately. We desire that our children will do all this willfully from their hearts as an act of worship for the glory of the Triune God – the Father, the Son and Holy Spirit.

Statement of Faith

The statement of faith adopted by HSCA Christian Academy is The Nicene Creed, which sets Christianity apart from all other faiths. It contains the key elements of Christianity that will be taught without reserve in various ways through all grade levels.

The Nicene Creed

I believe in one God, the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth and of all things visible and invisible.

And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God, the Only-begotten, begotten of the Father before all ages: Light of Light; true God of true God; begotten, not made; of one essence with the Father, by Whom all things were made.

Who for us men and for our salvation came down from heaven, and was incarnate of the Holy Spirit and the Virgin Mary, and became man.

He was crucified for us under Pontius Pilate, and suffered, and was buried. And on the third day He arose again, according to the Scriptures, and ascended into heaven, and sits at the right hand of the Father. And He shall come again with glory to judge the living and the dead; Whose Kingdom shall have no end.

I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the Giver of Life, Who proceeds from the Father, who with the Father and the Son is worshiped and glorified; Who spoke by the prophets.

I believe in One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church. I acknowledge one baptism for the remission of sins. I look for the resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come. Amen.
