Christian Education for Life

Providing Biblically-Based Academics Since 1975

Hope Christian Academy is an independent, non-denominational, community Christian School serving students in Pre-Kindergarten through grade 12. HCA is located in a spacious school building on the St. Thomas Aquinas campus in St. Paul Park, Minnesota. We are dedicated to helping students love the Lord with all their heart, soul, mind, and strength, while stressing God's commandments as practical life principles (Deuteronomy 6:5-6). Following Biblical guidelines translates into a strong academic program, a good work ethic, and a safe, loving environment.


We Have PreK!


Full day and partial day options for 3 and 4-year-olds structured in a school readiness format, including beginning phonics, Bible stories, and songs in a loving, Christian environment.
