HTCA uses the A.C.E. curriculum, Pre-school through K12. HTCA is a model A.C.E. school which affords the schools certain privileges and benefits.

Accelerated Christian Education is a Bible-based, Christian K–12 curriculum, consisting of reading programs, core curriculum, required electives, and additional instruction programs. Some courses are enhanced with CDs, DVDs, and computer software.

Core curriculum provides students with academics, skill building, reading practice, character and wisdom training, and knowledge of God and His Word. This complete package begins with reading development and progresses through high school, giving students a solid foundation for pursuing their life goals.

Students who are more skilled may progress at a faster rate or may accelerate in the areas of their academic strengths. Slower students are encouraged to do their best but are able to work at their levels of proficiency and proceed as they are capable.

Each core subject consists of 12 PACEs (Packet of Accelerated Christian Education) per level. Typical students work daily on one PACE in each subject and may be performing at varying levels. The diagnostic test results help to identify academic weaknesses and prescribe a path to help students catch up. Most students complete at least 70 PACEs per year, while maintaining academic balance by completing about the same number of PACEs in each assigned subject.

Tuition varies by grade level, and covers the general cost for faculty, facilities management, and administrative support. Most families should plan for some additional monthly expenses and non-refundable fees. Tiered tuition is available for families with multiple students enrolled. For more info, contact HTCA.

The Opportunity Scholarship Program provides tuition assistance of up to $4,200 per year for awarded students who enroll in a participating nonpublic school.This program is income-based. For more information on eligibility requirements see the Prospective Students section below.
