Pittsboro, NC - The new year rings in the season for private school admissions around the country. Locally, admissions for the 2011-12 school year is already underway at Haw River Christian Academy (HRCA). Re-enrollment, sibling, and corporation members’ admissions take place until January 31. On February 1, admissions will open to the general public.

To allow prospective families the opportunity to learn more about HRCA and meet with the administration, teachers, and board members, an Open House will be held on Thursday, February 3 from 5:30-7:30 P.M.

For the 2011-12 school year, HRCA will serve grades junior kindergarten (half-day) through sixth grade, completing the grammar school phase one year ahead of the school’s original plans. The school’s vision and mission is to add one grade per year until serving grades JK-12. Enrollment has doubled each year of its existence, as local families take notice of the numerous benefits a classical Christian education has to offer, including rigorous academics blended with a Christian worldview, a uniform code, and an emphasis on Christian values and traditional manners.

In addition to the traditional subjects of phonics/reading, spelling, handwriting, math, english, history/geography, and science, students receive classical instruction in art, music, and latin (beginning in the third grade) with specialized teachers. Also, the Chatham YMCA teaches physical education for grades K-6. Last year, HRCA administered standardized testing, using the California Achievement Test, and the results indicated that many of the students are in the 90th percentile or higher in most test categories.

Beyond academics, the school works hard in partnering with children’s parents on sound Christian character development. Last fall, the students participated in the school’s 2nd annual walk-a-thon that raised money for both the school and the Pittsboro Salvation Army. Additionally, the children were able to perform for families and patients at both the State Employees Credit Union (SECU) Family House and Ronald McDonald House in Chapel Hill.

In addition to attending the upcoming open house, interested families are encouraged to schedule a tour by contacting the School Office at 533-4139 or to visit the school’s website,, as an additional resource.
