No. Again, how can such a thing be developed when the schools teaching curriculum focuses on standardization rather that being creative? This type of teaching doesn't prepare students for the reality of the future.
Their Bible class was a person handing out a pamphlet and telling the kids to read it. When put on the spot and asked a question the teacher would tell them to read the pamphlet with no real discussion. A shame really.
The teachers have no real creativity and use Georgia's version of common core for high school. One would think that a private school would offer something different and maybe a bit better than what is being offered in the public school system. There is no real teaching going on at HCA it's more of a "here remember this worksheet" and "watch this video" style of teaching. The kids are left bored and unchallenged.
Highland Christian Academy is a great kindergarten thought 12th grade school. The elementary department uses the ABEKA curriculum and the middle and high school prepares students for college with a college prep program. HCA also offers a variety of sports including basketball, softball, and baseball. Students are also involved in the visual and performing arts and compete in local and Georgia Independent School Association competitions. Highland students have won several math competitions at Valdosta State University. Seniors are offered the opportunity to intern with local business owners in an internship program. One student actually served with House Representative, Amy Carter as an intern. Nurturing teachers hold at a least a Bachelor's degree or higher from an accredited college. Most of all, teachers love their students!
Can't say enough about this great school. My eldest graduated and completed college with some of the best tools to finish successfully with honors! She served as an intern in her senior year in her hopeful career field and was hired for the job after completion. My youngest is involved in sports, literary competetions and community service projects. My children have access to art and music..HCA is one of two schools in the state that offer Korean classes.My student has earned the HOPE scholarship through this amazing network of teachers and staff that seem to go the extra mile to meet both of my children's needs! As a parent, I have full access to my child's grades and homework, and test schedules any time online. The best quality I see at HCA is how the teachers truly care for each student! Bible classes are available to help my child grow spiritually as well as academically. I am thankful for the one on one relationships with teachers and staff at HCA that motivate my children to strive for God's best and to make a difference in the world. What more could a parent ask for?
