Hope Christian Academy was founded in 1981 as a non-denominational school for students in preschool through grade eight. HCA is a member of the Association of Christian Schools International and is approved by the State of North Dakota.
The purpose of Hope Christian Academy is to teach that the Lord Jesus Christ is preeminent in every aspect of life, including education. This comprehensive principle underlies every aspect of academic study, each activity, and all of school life. (Colossians 1:16-18, Romans 11:36, John 1:3) There is a clear, critical difference between the Biblical and secular viewpoints on a subject. Even though the facts of knowledge are identical for both, Hope Christian Academy teaches that no subject can be taught in the totality of its truth when the Creator is denied or ignored. Knowledge is purified by sound academic education and a wholesome activity program which are integrated with a Biblical viewpoint.
Parents are primarily responsible for the education of their children, yet parents and teachers are partners in the education of the students. Children are to be taught at home, as well as at school, with the consciousness that all truth is God’s truth, including history, mathematics, science, physical education, music, and the arts, and that Jesus is to be central in all learning and living.
Hope Christian Academy admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color
