Homewood Christian Academy is a state recognized pre-Kindergarten thru 8th grade Christian school providing quality education at an affordable tuition for the families living in the South Suburban Chicago area. HCA's commitment to providing a biblical world view through educating the minds and ministering to the souls of our students has made us the standard for producing the next generation of Christian leaders for 40 years.  Right now, just like many organizations, we are challenged by tough economic conditions.  We are seeking financial support. But why choose to support our particular school? We are worth the investment from many perspectives.  
The majority of our students live in at-risk or failing public school districts. HCA is uniquely qualified to provide parents residing in low achieving school districts with an option for their children to give them access to a high quality education. From Pre-K through 8th grade, our program is exceptional.  Almost all of our students meet and exceed yearly state and national standards for academic achievement. Even though our school has a 67% poverty rate, the typical HCA student who has been enrolled for three years scores 13 months above the state and national averages on achievement tests. When an HCA student experiences academic or social difficulty, educators implement an intervention plan that involves teachers and parents to facilitate academic success and restore self-esteem. Our instructional program is enhanced by a variety of stimulating learning experiences, including recreation, music, dance, and Spanish, and technology. We provide continuous professional development for classroom, elective, and support staff so that all students benefit from the best instructional practices.  

Because we have a 501c (3) tax-exempt designation, all contributions are tax-deductible. Please give thoughtful consideration to our request for your support.

Hello Everyone,
It's been a while since I've made an update on our campaign, but I want to make you aware of a pressing need. We have a family at HCA who needs our help. The students in this family of six have been attending our school for 3yrs. and one of the parents is battling cancer. The children are scared and face the possibility of having to leave school. I ask that you donate today toward covering the tuition for these students. We need to raise a total of $16,000 to cover their tuition for the year. Thank you for your prayers and donations.

Our campaign stands at $605 raised. The school year is well underway, and the Lord is blessing our students and their families daily. Last week, we were honored to have one of our young graduates come back and share a message during Chapel. It was wonderful to see how the Lord is using Farrell. He talked to our students about the importance of Christian Education and gave them insight into how to navigate the world of being a Christian teenager in the present generation. What a great example of how God is using HCA to shape the leaders of today and the future!
