Achieve Academic Success

The HCA faculty, staff, and administration works hard every day to provide an outstanding K-12 education. We are committed to providing students in each grade level with an excellent academic experience. With age-appropriate methodologies, our teachers build critical thinking skills, while also focusing on traditional core subjects. HCA administrators use regular evaluations, accreditation protocols, and yearly standardized test scores in a continual process of school improvement to give our families the finest school experience and the best preparation for the future. HCA maintains its accreditation through – MSA (regional), NACSAA (national), and AACS (national).

Annual Assessment

Harvest uses the Iowa Basic and CogAt as a standardized benchmark to measure instructional effectiveness and academic achievement of HCA students.  This annual assessment measures the academic performance of our students in English language arts and math.  The result from the Harvest student population reveals several key points:

  • HCA builds a strong academic foundation in 1st through 3rd grade.
  • The strong foundation prepares for accelerated academic results culminating in high school scores that are 30+% higher than the U.S. average.


HCA is accredited by the American Association of Christian School (AACS), Middle States Association Commissions on Elementary and Secondary Schools (MSACESS), and the North American Christian School Accrediting Agency (NACSAA).  MSACESS describes accreditation as the “affirmation that a school or other educational institution is providing the level of quality in its educational programs, services, activities, and/or resources expected by its community of stakeholders and endorsed by the education world.”

Harvest has achieved the level of “Accredited with Distinction” which carries significant scholastic recognition.

International Programs

Full-time International students attend our regular HCA classes and earn an American education with personal support for all their academic needs. Faculty provide extra attention and accommodations to our international students to help them adjust to a new home on Guam.  As a result of the academic challenge and personal support, students often acclimate quickly and graduate from the AES classes within 1 or 2 school years.
