A LETTER FROM PRINCIPAL Lily Kovalchuk
Welcome to Hope Christian Academy website!
It is difficult to express the excitement I am feeling in making history of Hope Christian Academy.
Our first year started with a group of families from Slavic Community Churches, who believed that children must be able to gain an understanding of God’s great love for them and to rely on His Word as the foundation for all wisdom and learning.
We began with little money, much prayer and a lot of determination. It’s a miracle of our Almighty God, for it was through His miraculous hand of blessing that the teaching ministry became a reality for our Church “Nadezhda”.
Although it was a large task, God was guiding and directing our paths as we remain faithful to Him. We met and exceeded all expectations in starting the new school, God’s hand of blessing has been evident in the growth and stability of the school. We continue to seek God’s direction, and His mercy to us.
As our nation continues in a direction that is increasingly godless, now more than ever we are praying to prepare the next generation to stand strong for the Lord in the middle of a crooked and perverse world.
As Scripture says in Psalm 92:12-15: “The righteous shall flourish like a palm tree, he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon. Those who are planted in the house of the Lord shall flourish in the courts of our God. They shall bear fruit in old age; they shall be fresh and flourishing, to declare that the Lord is upright; He is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in Him.”
Pray with us that our students will come through HCA and be planted, rooted, and as they grow they will flourish while they’re here, and after they leave. We don’t want them to just “make it through”; we want them to have an environment conducive to flourishing and maximum growth.
Through provoking Christian education, quality academic emphasis on the core content areas of Bible, reading, language arts, science, social studies, and mathematics. We are committed to providing a learning program reaching beyond state and national standards while fulfilling our call to ministry. Instruction in music, foreign language, art, technology, and physical education, Home Economics and other subjects, completes our program by providing each student with the opportunity to develop areas of interest and skill. Character development is also a concentration as students yield to the Lord’s will. Students will embark upon Christian principles as they honor God through their character, leadership, gifts, and service.
It is an honor and privilege to be at the service of an outstanding faculty and the wonderful parents and students that make up the community of our School.
I wish to take this opportunity to thank all of you who were involved in any way with this process over the course of the school year. God willing, together, we will serve Him for many more years at Hope Christian Academy!
In partnership with parents as a humble servant,
Hope Christian Academy
