About Hillsdale Christian Academy

Hillsdale Christian Academy builds on Hillsdale Christian Preschool's dedication to excellence. The elementary grades are important formative years.  Each child has the ability to succeed, but may need different avenues in which to do it. Equipped with well-established teachers and staff, Hillsdale Christian Academy’s Lower School faculty is dedicated to the success of every student.  Each of our Elementary teachers have at least a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education.  The school facility is clean, and secure. If you're looking for a Tampa private school, Westchase private school or Citrus Park private school, our school is conveniently located just off the Veteran's highway on Ehrlich Road.

Students have chapel once a week with various speakers from our staff and faculty. This time of singing, teaching and interaction around the Word of God gives another outlet for students to hear truths to help them learn and grown in the Lord.


Luke 2:52 reads, “And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favour with God and man.” This “whole-body” endeavor of educating and encouraging your child to greatness is a direct result of the example set up for us in the Word of God. What we do at HCA will reflect each of these components. Wisdom: Knowledge that is applied to life’s circumstances. Stature: Healthy and growing bodies that are respected by others and ourselves. Favor with God: Knowing who God is and how your child can have a relationship with Him. Favor with Man: Getting along with one another in love.
