    Welcome to the Harvest Christian Academy online Student Services/Guidance Department page.  We believe that God has uniquely gifted each one of our students and that He has a plan for their lives.  Our department goal is to help students make the best choices possible as they strive towards God’s will for their lives.  It is our intention to enable our students to be wise stewards of all the gifts, talents, abilities, experiences and passions that God has entrusted them with; all to the glory of God.

    We commit to partnering with parents in creating a four year plan for each student, taking into consideration each student’s post secondary goals.  Additionally, we collaborate with our teachers, resource services, school nurse, Spiritual Life Director and administration to care for and encourage all of our students in their physical, intellectual, emotional and spiritual development.
