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.
