Dear Friends of HCA -

Like most private, independent schools across the country, the tuition paid by HCA families only accounts for 75% to 80% of our operating budget each year. The school therefore relies on the charitable financial support of its alumni, parents, grandparents, and even its teachers. Our primary method of giving is The Shield Fund, an annual fund made up of unrestricted donations that give the school the flexibility to hire and retain great teachers, build curriculum, develop new co-curricular programs and support established ones, and provide excellent facilities for learning. The Shield Fund allows us to build and maintain the best HCA possible, and we ask every family to make an annual donation, small or large, to this fund.

Here in this section of our website you'll see other ways to give. In addition to these, we ask you to pray for HCA's students and programs.  All that we do is made possible because God has put us in this place, at this school between two cornfields that is called to be a city on a hill.

If I can answer any questions or if you would like to meet to discuss HCA and its future, please do not hesitate to reach out to me.
