Classroom Spaces:

Classes at HCAP are fun, inviting, organized and exciting. Each teacher encourages students to bring out their best and challenges them to work up to their potential.  The preschool is a learning time preparing kids for school.  As a Christian school a Christ-centered curriculum is used.


Luke 2:52 reads, “And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favour with God and man.” This “whole-body” endeavor of educating and encouraging your child to greatness is a direct result of the example set up for us in the Word of God. What we do at HCAP will reflect each of these components.

  • Wisdom: Knowledge that is applied to life’s circumstances.
  • Stature: Healthy and growing bodies that are respected by others and ourselves.
  • Favor with God: Knowing who God is and how your child can have a relationship with Him.
  • Favor with Man: Getting along with one another in love.
