About Homeschool Christian Academy

Our Mission

Homeschool Christian Academy (HCA) endeavors to support Christian homeschooling parents of Southern Maryland by providing an affordable opportunity to supplement their children's education in a Christ-centered environment.

Who We Are

HCA was founded in 2005 by a few dedicated parents to provide a few classes for a small homeschool group.  HCA has expanded into a larger coooperative tutorial to include over 50 participating families and offers a variety of K-12th grade courses.

HCA is staffed by its member families that serve as Parent Assistants, Supervisors, Coordinators and Administrators.  Teachers are contracted to provide weekly instruction to HCA students.

Legal Matters

Homeschooling families enrolled in HCA are individually responsible for their legal standing with the State of Maryland, local school board and, if applicable, umbrella organization.  HCA is NOT a school or umbrella organization and therefore does not issue credits, transcripts or other legal documentation. 

Who Is Eligible?

  • K-12th grade homeschooled students, age 5 - 18 by September 1st of the current academic year.
  • Students must be able to function without assistance or accommodation in a classroom setting to attend HCA classses.  Since HCA is not a school, there is no support staff to accommodate any special needs.
  • HCA cannot provide an allergen-free environment at lunch, administer medication or manage any health issues. 
  • Parents should contact HCA if they require clarification regarding any of these items or would like to discuss their child's specific situation. 

Academic Year & Classes

  • HCA meets one day a week, for 30 weeks, from late August through early May.
  • Class days are Thursdays from 8:30 am to 3:30 pm.
  • Some high school courses are one semester (15 weeks) in length.
  • While HCA's courses may steer your home studies as desired, homework, when assigned, is mandatory.


HCA meets at SAYSF Bible Church, located on Rue Purchase Rd just off of Hwy 235 in Lexington Park, Maryland.  Rue Purchase Rd is north of Gate 1 of PAX Naval Air Station, at the left-turn lighted intersection at Wawa and CVS. The SAYSF campus is at the very end of the road, so it's impossible to miss us.  

NOTE:  Please email HCA from this website if you would like to contact us.  Since HCA is NOT a ministry of SAYSF Bible Church, please do not contact the church directly for information about HCA.
