Thank you for your interest in HLCA! These pages were created to help you, as a parent, to decide if HLCA is the educational choice for you and your student(s). Below are some of the most frequently asked questions. As always, please feel free to contact us at any time.
What are HLCA's school hours?
School days at HLCA are Monday through Thursday for all students. All grades begin school at 8:00 a.m. Preschool and Kindergarten dismiss at 11:30 a.m., Elementary through Senior high grades dismiss at 3:00 p.m. Attendance is extremely important, so parents are urged to schedule doctor or dentist appointments on Fridays to ensure maximum instruction time.
Does HLCA provide transportation?
It is the parent's responsibility to transport their student to and from school. A written or verbal release is required for students to ride home with anyone other than their parents. High School students may drive upon proof of valid license and insurance.
What curriculum do you use?
The Bible is our primary book for wisdom, knowledge, and understanding. ABeka is the core curriculum used at HLCA in a traditional classroom setting. Other material from Bob Jones, School of Tomorrow, and other educational sources are used to meet individualized needs. The Barton Reading Program is used as a tutoring system to help those students struggling with dyslexia and other reading problems. A staffed Resource Center with state-of-the-art software and hardware provides each student with the skills necessary to succeed in today's world.
What are your class sizes?
We limit enrollment. This is arranged so students will receive one-on-one attention, tutoring, or small group instruction when necessary. This enables the student to maintain grade level in every subject or to work in a positive way to achieve their grade level.
Maximum class size in the PreElementary classes: PreSchool 2yrs--8 children, PreSchool 3yrs--10 children, PreSchool 4yrs--12 children, and Kindergarten--14 children. In Grades 1st-12th maximum class size is 15 students.
What are HLCA's affiliations?
We are a non-denominational Christian school working with the community to provide a high standard of academic excellence for students PK-12th grade. Our school is a ministry of House of the Lord Church and is a member of ACSI (Association of Christian Schools International). Our school is an official reading site of the Barton Reading Program. Our sports program offering boy's soccer, girl's volleyball and girl's and boy's basketball programs is involved in the Christian Mountain League.
Do you offer any testing?
Along with our mid-term, quarter, and semester exams, HLCA uses the Stanford Achievement Test, 10th Edition, to test our students in even grades in April. 11th Graders take the PSAT/NMSQT test in October.
Is HLCA's tuition expensive?
Tuition costs are set to be as affordable as possible for families and still maintain a financial stability for the school. We realize that our tuition amounts will not cover all the costs related to the school. Additional funds must be raised through events, donations and gifts in kind. Our Benevon program helps raise community awareness and financial support in order to allow attendance for all who have a desire to enroll in our school. Check out our Tuition page for more information.
Can I come visit for a tour?
Please do! We offer House Call tours - a one hour tour and presentation of our school. It is an opportunity for us to share with prospective parents and our community the mission and vision of our school. Guests meet some of our teachers and students. They will also be given an overview of who we are and what makes our school unique. We have a passion for Christian education and have found this to be an effective way of sharing that passion!
