Discipleship Theme

Developing spiritual leaders

All HCA classes integrate discipleship themes and questions that build upon each other as a student’s academic journey progresses. At the time of graduation, students will have wrestled with topics and questions that challenge, shape, and grow their faith and character.

The Discipleship Themes and questions begin with simple thoughts for lower Elementary grades and develop into more complicated topics requiring significant critical-thinking during High School.

The following are the Discipleship Themes for each grade level:

Elementary School

    • Kindergarten: “God Is the Creator”
    • 1st Grade: “The Fruit of the Spirit”
    • 2nd Grade: “The Importance of Going to Church”
    • 3rd Grade: “God’s Holy Word”
    • 4th Grade: “Faith, Belief, and Trust”
    • 5th Grade: “Sin and Forgiveness”

Middle School

    • 6th Grade: “Sharing the Good News”
    • 7th Grade: “Conflict and Change: Dealing with Adversity”
    • 8th Grade: “Moral Beliefs and Values”

High School

    • 9th Grade: “Decision-Making and Its Consequences”
    • 10th Grade: “Earthly Kingdom and Heavenly Kingdom”
    • 11th Grade: “Understanding the Times”
    • 12th Grade: “Goals, Determination, and Perseverance” (Preparing for the Future)

Discipleship Themes are integrated into each academic discipline through lesson plans, specific projects, and class activities. Incorporating these topics and questions into the educational experience follows HCA’s desire to be a Kingdom Education school.
