Hunting Park Christian Academy : HPCA provides quality, Christian education to at-risk children from low-income families. HPCA maintains a very low tuition with a good scholarship program so that Christian education can be accessible to the poor in the Hunting Park community. They have tutoring for students who enter the school behind their grade level. The students have made great progress academically since implementing the Foundations and Frame works material into the overall HPCA curriculum in 2006. Since most of the students are not raised in Christian homes, they do all they can to train them up in the ways of the Lord. Many of the students have heard the gospel of Jesus Christ for the first time at HPCA and have come to know the Lord. Some students have been influential in bringing their parents to church. Learn more about the LPC partnership with HPCA.
