    Home - Admissions - New Student Information Welcome to HCA.  We are glad that you have joined our pride and now can proudly say with us, "We are Lions!"
    This page is dedicated to you.  It is meant to inform you in one location of the things that you will need to know.

    ALL STUDENTS

    WEBSITE TUTORIAL-
    Start here and download this page.  It will give you tips about how to navigate this website.  Our goal is to keep this website current with easy to find helpful information for our students and parents.

    SCHOOL DATABASE| INFINITE CAMPUS (IC)-
    Infinite Campus is our school database. This link will give you some tutorial videos, it will have the login link and also give you directions on how to download the mobile app which is super helpful for parents of students grade 6-12.  Infinite campus keeps grades, attendance, lunch money.  Students in grade 6 and up will be assigned a login too.  They will have different access than a parent but then are able to keep track of grades for themselves. All IC usernames and passwords are initially assigned by our reception desk. If you have not received yours email .

    UNIFORMS & DRESS CODES-

    This is often much needed information for new families.  You're best bet for lower school and middle school is to use the quick reference guides which provide a simplified version of our details.  Our uniform provider is Land's End but you are welcome to use any local retail outlet as well.  PE Uniforms are required for grades 6-12.  Those are purchased through Land's End only.

    STUDENT HANDBOOK-
    Please read through our Student Handbook so that you may be familiar with all policies pertaining to your student while enrolled at HCA.

    PTF-
    Do you want to get involved?  This is always the best place to meet other parents.  We are blessed to have our Parent Teacher Fellowship here at HCA.  Read through their page and see information on programs that we support and use to bless our school. Our PTF Lead is Rebekah Callahan 847.767.5512 and she'd love to hear from you.

    LUNCH ACCOUNTS-
    We use a system called RevTrak which allows for credit card payment to your student's lunch money.  RevTrak is linked to Infinite Campus and for logging in you start with your IC username and student's birthday.  Also monthly lunch menus are kept on this page.

    BOXTOPS-
    Every year we collect BoxTops.  So you can start even now clipping and saving them.  The due dates for submitting BoxTops are in October and February and are communicated through our PTF.

    LUNCH ROOM MICROWAVES
    You may notice there are microwaves in the lunchroom.  They are designated for use by middle and high school students only.  Please don't plan for your lower school student to "reheat" a lunch from home.

    We encourage you to send a re-useable water bottle daily to school with your student.  In addition, each class from K-5 will have a designated snack time for something healthy brought from home.
