Heritage Christian Academy has embraced the concept that athletics play a meaningful and necessary role in the overall education of a student. The idea that an athletic program can complement a strong academic curriculum is one that has inspired the school to provide its students with many ways to wear the HCA logo proudly. The concepts that children learn in team sports prepare them for the challenges and rigors of life.
HCA offers a variety of sports, including Baseball & Softball, Basketball, Cheerleading, Dance, Football , Golf , Tennis , Track & Field , and Volleyball . The students who participate in athletics learn to develop important character traits such as commitment, loyalty, integrity, respect for others and themselves, and an appreciation for the benefits of hard work. Inevitably, they emerge from the process as confident young people capable of making intelligent decisions and gracefully accepting the consequences. They experience victory and defeat, the camaraderie of the team, the benefits of cooperation, and the passion and joy of competition. It is important that all students are given the opportunity to participate in more than one sport if they choose. Many students do not mature physically until late high school, but because they were given the opportunity to participate in athletics and develop those foundational principals, they were prepared to contribute as a junior or senior at a high level, which in turn allowed them to play sports at the college level.
