In 1999, Hunting Park Christian Academy opened its doors in Philadelphia with the mission of providing “an affordable, quality, Christian education that celebrates a diverse community and leads children to know and serve the Lord.” Starting with 70 students, it now has a student body of 200 students for grades Pre-Kindergarten through grade 8. In the community HPCA serves, there is a 53% high school dropout rate with 45% of the families living at or below the federal poverty level. Tuition is $2,000 per year and it is not unusual for children who attend one year to become unable to continue due to family finances. Because of this, we will be covering the tuition cost for four children for ten years each at HPCA, thus preparing them for success in high school and beyond.
