Heritage Christian Academy (HCA) is an independent community Christian school serving Kindergarten -12th grade. We also have an Early Education Program for ages 3-5. Established in 1974, originally as Shades Mountain Christian School, HCA has a rich heritage in Christian education and a foundation in partnering with parents in a vital ministry: the spiritual, academic, and social development of children. HCA offers a unique spirit of family and community while featuring more than 40 years of Christian education with an inter-denominational school representing students and faculty from over 100 local churches and small average class sizes (12:1). We have a devoted faculty whose lives reflect a personal relationship with Christ and commitment to provide a nurturing environment for students to grow in their God given talents. The school’s name “Heritage Christian Academy” is reflective of our rich heritage in Christian education and our commitment to Christ through excellence in the classroom and beyond. We are accredited by AdvancEd (formerly Southern Association of Colleges and Schools) and a member of the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI). The school is located just off Exit 1 on Interstate 459, less than a mile from Bent Brook Golf Course. We encourage you to visit us and experience this special place for yourself!
