The mission of Heart to Heart Christian Academy is to glorify God by providing students a Christ-centered, Bible-based education, by influencing them for salvation, by instructing them in values for Godly living, and by providing a program of academic and extra-curricular excellence.
“Our mission is based on the opportunity to promote educational excellence, foster character development, and maximize individual strengths through academic, artistic, social, and athletic experiences. The spiritual, academic, and personal growth of all students is our priority. Our curriculum implements a variety of instructional practices and learning activities that support success. Therefore, our students are challenged to demonstrate an understanding of knowledge and skills, problem solving, and the production of relevant and meaningful work. A sense of responsibility to parents, schoolmates, our school, and our community is an expectation. As we look to the future, we will continue to treat our students, parents, teachers, staff, and other stakeholders with respect and honor in an atmosphere that is designed to bring out the best in every individual.”

We believe that the Holy Bible, in both the Old and New Testaments, was supernaturally inspired and that the King James Version of the Bible is the divinely preserved Word of God for the English speaking people (Psalm 12:6-7) and that it has enjoyed a miraculous manifestation of God’s approval all during its history and use. It is our guidebook for faith and practice in this life.
We believe that there is one God, without beginning and without end. Revelation 1:8, Micah 5:2. We believe in the Trinity - God, the Father, God, the Son, and God, the Holy Spirit. Matthew 28:19, II Corinthians 13:14.
God is the Creator of Heaven and earth. Man is the direct act of creation by God. Jesus Christ, God’s incarnate, virgin-born Son, took human flesh to shed His blood on Calvary’s cross for the salvation on mankind from sin. He ascended into Heaven to the right hand of God, and He will make a personal return to earth in power and glory. The Holy Spirit indwells all believers and guides and instructs them through the Word of God.
Salvation is based on a personal recognition of sin and complete faith (reliance) upon the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ for the salvation of the soul.
The school's highest priority is spiritual training. After receiving Christ as personal Savior, it is vital that a child be taught the Bible and the claims of Jesus Christ on the life of each individual. Conformity to Christ's image (Romans 8:29) is the ultimate goal of spiritual training. Proper Christian character and a right view of life begin with a proper relationship to God through Jesus Christ and a view of life based on the Word of God.
Rigorous academics are stressed at every level. Not only are cognitive skills strengthened through standard courses, but students are taught to think within the boundaries of the Bible. All truth is recognized as God's truth and is not in conflict with the Scriptures.
Proper social relations are Bible-based in a Christian school. What some would call "old-fashioned" decency and morality is what is believed to be the proper stance for the Christian. In a day when it is accepted to "do as you please," the Christian school stresses self-control, respect for law and order, patriotism, and Bible morality.
In order to provide a well-rounded education, all core academics, fine arts and athletics, are incorporated into the Philosophy to achieve a wholesome Christian atmosphere.
