History

Back in 1980, a group of parents and the pastor from Hudson View Baptist Church were concerned that the public education system was failing to properly educate their children by indoctrinating them with humanistic philosophy and programs that were unacceptable to born-again, Bible-believing Christians.  With the firm belief that they needed to train their children not to walk in the counsel of the ungodly (Psalm 1:1) and that families needed to obey Colossians 2:8 “Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ,” Hudson View Christian Academy was formed.  Over the last 40 years, we have successfully educated and trained Christian young people with most of our graduates continuing their education at institutions of higher learning.  With God’s help, we will endeavor to continue to prepare young believers to be effective for their Savior in this present world.

Philosophy

HVCA is a unique academy with a Christ-centered curriculum and a caring, dedicated staff which are both designed for the purpose of educating born-again children.  HVCA is a ministry of Hudson View Baptist Church and is, therefore, under the leadership and authority of the church.  The church has set up a board that consists of the Pastor and the Deacons to oversee the operation of the academy.

Curriculum

Hudson View Christian Academy uses the Abeka Book curriculum for all grades.  While the K3 – K5 classes are taught traditionally, most of the higher grades have video classes.  For further curriculum information, feel free to visit abeka.com.  Our students have excelled in standard achievement testing, scoring in the top 80th percentile in the nation and in the top third among private Christian schools.

Affiliation

Hudson View Christian Academy is a member of the American Association of Christian Schools (AACS).  This national organization of Bible-believing Christian schools aids in the establishment, advancement, and legal protection of the rights of Christian schools to operate.  HVCA belongs to the New York chapter of AACS which works with our state and national government on behalf of its members to oversee our legal rights.  HVCA is recognized by New York State as a substantially equivalent school as determined by the local board of education.
