The HCA Curriculum

Effective education does more than teach the basics. When students experience self-motivation, overcome challenges, and make discoveries, learning becomes:






HCA students develop a passion for the truth by thinking critically and logically. They use insights to write and speak clearly and persuasively and honor their values by living healthfully and virtuously.

Student Life

Learning extends beyond a school building, and student life at HCA offers many opportunities to explore interests, cultivate talents, and get physically fit while enjoying fellowship.


 Throughout the school year, HCA provides numerous opportunities for students to develop and enhance their leadership skills, ensuring they are ready to make a positive impact in the world.


HCA students serve throughout Kalamazoo at The Gospel Mission, Alternatives, local nursing homes, and more. We are committed to instilling the habit of service in our students.

Theater Arts

At HCA, we embrace the enriching power of theater. Our Spring Musical features performers across multiple grades, promoting self-expression and creativity in a supportive Christian setting.


Discover year-round sports at HCA! Enjoy cross-country, volleyball, soccer, basketball, and baseball in a supportive Christian environment. Join us to foster teamwork and athletic growth!
