Halifax Christian Academy (HCA) seeks the next team member to help take our School
to new heights. HCA nurtures young minds and increases the faith of children as young
as 18 months old through to grade 12 via two rapidly growing campuses in the Halifax
Regional Municipality (HRM). HCA currently impacts 270 students in three divisions:
Elementary (pre-primary – grade 6), Middle (7-8) and Secondary (9-12) as well as 30+
children in Early Childhood Education.

Halifax is the largest city in Atlantic Canada and is the second fastest-growing city in
Canada. That growth, coupled with the increasing demand for Christian education
among families, has HCA experiencing unprecedented enrollment growth. These are
exciting times at HCA, but as with any growth, there are new challenges; thus, we are
praying for God's provision of an excellent new ministry leader that will help progress
our vision and mission as a blessing to our students, families and staff.
