A group of Moore County, NC citizens are seeking to found a public charter school of choice based on the tried and true principles of traditional K-12 education. We have applied to be a Hillsdale Member School (

MISSION: Highlands Charter Academy will cultivate lifelong intellectual curiosity in its students through a traditional, content-rich classical education that emphasizes virtuous living, moral character, and civic responsibility, equipping students to live well-ordered lives.

The focus will be on a proven classical curriculum, solid classroom instruction, and a school culture steeped in kindness, integrity, and respect. The team will collaborate with local parents, community leaders, and policymakers in launching the school.​

The school will be a NC public charter school, meaning there is no tuition. Charter school admission is random, and there is no discrimination in admissions. 

Public charter schools must provide their own facilities and pay start-up costs on their own. As we begin HCA, there are many items to be paid and we are seeking donations until we can hold fund-raisers.
