Training minds to lead and hearts to serve

Serving Local and Global Families

HCA combines a safe, nurturing environment with quality academic instruction and opportunities to participate in activities students love...all with the goal of teaching ways they can positively engage and impact culture.

At Harvester, we believe education is about preparing students for life beyond the classroom. We do this by maintaining high standards at every level of learning on the path to graduation, and integrating Biblical principles that will guide students when they transition to life-long learning as responsible citizens.

Parent Perspectives

I toured Harvester Christian Academy this morning. I can't even put into words how welcoming the visit was. I felt soooo respected. Not sure if it was just this school or all private schools...Everyone spoke...I kept hearing "Welcome to the family." Even the students spoke. Everyone was warm and welcoming. I'd be a fool to go anywhere else. Definitely an upgrade coming from public schooling.
We love Harvester Christian Academy. We have been blessed to have such an amazing school to send our girls to. It's not everywhere where you can get [an] outstanding Christian education with an environment that is like a family.
HCA is full of teachers and administrators who truly care about students. I've heard so many stories from families here about the staff who have gone above and beyond for their children. The academics, athletics, and clubs rival those of much larger schools. We are blessed to be here!

Youth Leadership Douglas gives the students the opportunity to acquire and broaden their knowledge of not only social and business etiquette but also of local government, business, and civic activities through a five-month leadership program. They will visit public safety facilities, learn about history and culture, water resources, and develop leadership skills.

Students completed a competitive application and interview process, and 39 students were selected from Alexander, Douglas County, Chapel Hill, Lithia Springs, New Manchester High Schools as well as Harvester Christian Academy, and Landmark Christian School. The program will consist of Fall and Spring sessions.

Rick Johnson, Head of School

With 35+ years of educational and administrative experience, Mr. Johnson became the Head of School at HCA in August of 2019 with the start of the 2019-20 school year. His servant leadership, organizational vision, practical guidance, and love for the Harvester Family has been both positive and refreshing.

It is my great honor and pleasure to welcome you to Harvester Christian Academy online. I look forward to seeing you on our campus at some point as well!

My hope is that your visit here will give you a glimpse of the unique family atmosphere we have the opportunity to experience together at HCA every day. Whether you're a prospective parent or student getting to know who we are, or someone who is already part of our HCA Family...it is our desire that each of you will find the Hawk Nation to be welcoming, inclusive, conscientious, and generous in our approach to people and to education.

We also want to model integrity and excellence in a way that inspires students and teaches them that their God-given abilities are best invested in ways that show His love to everyone they meet. Colossians 3:23 says, "Put your heart and soul into every activity you do, as though you are doing it for the Lord Himself and not merely for others."

Let's go, Hawks!

The task of the modern educator is not to cut down jungles, but to irrigate deserts.
