About Harvest Time Academy
Harvest Time Church has a rich and respected history in Christian education. With over two decades of dedication and investment to Harvest Time Christian School, Harvest Time Church believed strongly in Christian education as a mission of the church and had a heart for raising the next generation of Christian leaders through Christian education. Later in 2014, the Board of Directors of Harvest Time determined to open Harvest Time Academy Preschool as a mission to train up children according to Deuteronomy 6 to know God and his word in an environment of excellence in academics.
One primary objective is to see our students grow spiritually. This is reinforced in every subject, not just Bible class or chapels. Our teachers and staff model a lifestyle of fellowship with God. The Word of God is taught, scripture is memorized, and the application of God’s Word in daily living is emphasized. Students also learn who they are in Christ allowing them to develop their individual gifts and talents and employ them in a life of learning, serving, and growing in a relationship with Jesus Christ.
Academically, HTA stresses excellence in every subject. Our curriculum is chosen specially to ensure that academic objectives are being met. The academic standards and expectations are high, not unrealistic. We realize each student has different abilities and expect each one to do his or her best. Our goal is to equip our students with knowledge and understanding which prepares them for success in life.
Another key element in our educational philosophy is the partnership between the home and HTA. Without a healthy, supportive, and effective relationship between the school and the home, the student’s education will suffer. Parents expect and appreciate direct and regular communication from faculty regarding their children. In return, teachers expect parents to be responsive to their suggestions regarding their children. When this partnership is honored by all parties involved, every child at Harvest Time Academy can reach his or her fullest potential.
Harvest Time Academy equips students to know God, achieve academic excellence, discover their purpose, and make a difference.
