History

“Training Minds to Lead and Hearts to Serve”

 
Harvester Christian Academy  was established 30 years ago as a ministry of Harvester Church, now Chapel Hill Presbyterian Church.  Beginning initially with kindergarten through third grade and sharing a multi-purpose space, the school was well-received by the community.  This warm reception led to the addition of grade levels and the expansion of facilities. Classroom space was added in 1991, allowing for increased learning space.   In 1995,  the gymnasium was added,  allowing for the development of more robust athletics programs.  The following year, a joint middle school/high school building was added to accommodate the ever-expanding student body.  
 
Harvester’s rapid growth made it a viable entity on its own.  Thus, Chapel Hill Presbyterian Church ascribed sovereignty to the school, establishing it as a distinct corporation with its own governing board in November, 1999.

 

In the fall of 2017, Harvester Christian Academy’s expansion continued with the addition of a new classroom building.  This facility allowed for further growth of the student body and introduced updated facilities such as a state-of-the art STEM lab, computer lab, physical and life sciences labs, media center, and art studio.  
 
Harvester Christian Academy celebrated its first graduating class in 1998, its first exchange students in 2009, and its first international students in 2014.  Through each of these seasons to today Harvester continues to be known for its Christ-centered education, academic rigor, small classes, and family-friendly community.  Today HCA serves students from China, South Korea, and the west Georgia region, representing more than 80 different churches.
