“Though the vision tarry–wait for it!” from Habakkuk 2:3 which says, “For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie:  though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.” 

Highview Christian Academy began in August of 1992 as a vision for youth ministries.  Many years passed, and though the vision tarried, the Philbricks waited for it with a strong walk of faith.  By 1994, it was God’s appointed time that gave birth for this vision to become a reality.

The first forty students attended the fall of 1994, since then Highview Christian Academy has grown by God’s Hand and from the hearts of people with a real spirit of giving.


Our philosophy is structured much the same as that of the Puritans when establishing the Massachusetts Bay Colony, which became known as the “City on the Hill“. Their establishment and existence was based on the following five points:

  1. Trust in God
  2. Hard Work
  3. High Standards
  4. Self-Discipline
  5. Belief that everyone should have a good education


The purpose of Highview Christian Academy is to offer a quality education in a Christian atmosphere that is conducive for each student to be able to successfully achieve to the best of their ability, to better develop the highest level of Christian character and morals, work ethics, and a respect for themselves and their fellowman. Our goal is that upon completion of one’s education at HCA the individual will be representative of a true American citizen, displaying strong leadership, critical thinking, reasoning, and decision making abilities that will enhance his/her personal life, family, career, community, and his/her country.
