Announcements & Events

How do the satisfied parents at the Highland Park Christian Academy describe the school?  Rigorous. Fun. Caring. Progressive. Up-to-date.  Complete package. Quality Christian facility. Dedicated. Committed. Come see if they are right!!!  Enrollment for the 2014-2015 school year is currently underway.
God has blessed HPCA with a $1000 donation from the Rev. Tyrone Pettiford, Pastor of Hughes Chapel CME Church, Fort Worth, Texas.  The Academy now only needs $5000 more to fulfill its obligations to match a $20,000 grant from the Goldenrod Research Corporation, based in Spalding Nebraska.  Highland Park is the first school in the Washington, DC Metropolitan Area to win the grant.  And already HPCA staff and students are enjoying the robotics program known as the Youth Touch Technology Integration System.  The Academy welcomes donations of any amount.  $1, $5, $10, $20, $1,000.  For further information, call the Academy Office at (301)773-4079.
New Worship Center Construction Project - Get Excited The Trucks Are Coming!!!  During this upcoming week the initial phase of our new Worship Center is scheduled to begin with the build up and development of the parking lot on the east side of our campus between the lower entrance and the KFC?  For the next 6 months parking spots will be a challenge as the contractor builds and develops new parking lots for our use.  Directional signs, notices and alerts will be posted frequently during this time.  What Can You Do?  Begin now to plan for families to travel together in one car for worship services, establish carpools with neighbors and friends, and pray for a cooperative spirit and patience.  These are exciting times in the history of FBCHP and we are Expecting the Miraculous thru Faith, Prayer and Unity of Purpose.
