HLCA is more than a school that has Bible classes and Christian teachers. As a Christian school, HLCA strives to use Biblical principles to guide everything done in the school. “With your counsel You will guide me.” (Psalm 73:24)

The goal of HLCA is more than having students pass tests, although that is a big part of the goal. The ultimate goal is that students trust the Lord Jesus Christ as their Savior from sin and that they serve Him faithfully with their whole lives. “Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship.” (Romans 12:1)

At HLCA the lessons are taught in an orderly fashion. The lessons build from simple facts to more complex; from basic skills to advanced skills. Foundational subjects must be well learned before advancing in to other subjects. For this reason we incorporate much review and have regularly scheduled tests and quizzes. Grade cards are given out at midterm and end of term, so the child’s progress is easily followed. “For precept must be upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little.” (Isaiah 28:10)

HLCA takes seriously the spiritual training of it’s students. We teach spiritual truths in every subject because God is our Creator. Scripture memory is therefore a major part of the educational program. “Your word is truth.” (John 17:17) We use Christian textbooks to ensure that we teach from a Biblical perspective. These books are well-written and thorough in their subject matter. Though most of them are published in the USA (which is the only English-speaking country that publishes Christian textbooks), each teacher customizes the lessons as needed to emphasize our Caribbean heritage. For some subjects (Caribbean history, social studies, and agriculture) we use the same textbooks used in the Government schools. We use the best books we can find for each subject putting a priority on Christian textbooks.
