“Be a bridge for Christ
    and a beacon of His love.”

Philadelphia, PA

huntingparkAbout the Organization: Hunting Park Christian Academy provides affordable, quality Christian education to children living in inner city Philadelphia that celebrates a diverse community and leads children to know and serve the Lord. In the community that this school 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 a year, and it is not unusual for children who attend one year to become unable to continue due to family finances.

DPC Engagement: In addition to general support for the Hunting Park Christian Academy, Doylestown Presbyterian has committed to providing scholarships for four students to attend the school for ten years each from Pre-Kindergarten through eighth grade as part of the Forward Together capital campaign, thus preparing them for success in high school and beyond.
