Haw River Christian Academy is the premier classical Christian school in Chatham County, North Carolina. In 2007, our school was founded by a group of local, Christian parents who desired and were committed to providing a faith-based education, complemented with rigorous academics, for their children and the Christian community.

Deuteronomy 6 informs parents that, in all they do, they should provide a godly education all day, everyday.  There are three key institutions that shape a child:  home, church and school.  We believe that children are served best when all three institutions point them in the same direction.

HRCA is a member of the Association of Classical Christian Schools and was modeled after these nationally recognized institutions.  We are a 501(c)3 non-profit, church independent, Christian school.  Our school is currently comprised of families representing over 30 churches of varying denominations across multiple counties.

Personalized school tours, throughout the year, may be scheduled for families by contacting our office at 919-533-4139.

We are accepting 2015-16 applications for limited seats in Jr. Kindergarten-10th grade.  For more information, call 919-533-4139 or email info@hawriverchristian.org.


Admissions begins on January 1 of each new year, at which time we begin accepting applications for the next school year.  We do consider transfers during the school year in classrooms that have open seats.  A school tour is a required step in the admissions process.
