This public charter school will be located in Moore County and begin with grades K-8 adding a grade each year until K-12 is reached.

A group of Sandhills citizens is in the process of founding a public charter school based on the tried and true principles of traditional classical American education. Because this will be a public school there will be no tuition. 

Our 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.

Vision Statement

Highlands Charter Academy will develop the minds and nurture the hearts of students through a content-rich, classical liberal arts education that develops both academic potential and personal integrity such that they will be well-prepared for family responsibilities, a career, and a lifetime of learning. HCA will emphasize human virtue, moral character, and responsible citizenship in teacher-led classrooms.
