    Submit To One Another – Esteem Others Highly

    Encourage One Another – Cultivate Redemptive Relationships

    In order to protect our HCA community, I will avoid both speaking or listening to unhealthy criticism of others and solve conflict biblically. Specifically, I will be discrete in my communication, correct slander and gossip immediately, and speak directly with those involved.

    I am committed to living out the values outlined above and will pursue to model Christ-like character and build the school for Christ’s glory.
